Necessary Risks

(long wait in exam room at pediatrician)

Me: “So this Well Visit flyer says boys around age 10 may start taking unnecessary risks.”

(boy jumps off exam table onto his face)

Danger Monkey, age 10: “Owww.”

Me: “I have no idea what they are talking about.”

(boy rides rolling exam stool into wall with his face)

DM: “I don’t know, either.”

(boy climbs wall, hits face on window sill as he falls)

Me: “Yeah, it’s a big mystery.”


Disco Dad

My youngest gave me my Fathers Day card… which was approximately six pounds of silver glitter glued to a sheet of paper. No writing or pictures. Just silver glitter. Basically a steamrolled disco ball.

She said, “Here’s your card. Now let’s go rough house.”

And we did.
