How many times?

As I cuddle Sam and assure him that his left eye is, in fact, still where it’s supposed to be, Jack says with genuine remorse, “I really am sorry.”

I know you are honey, but how many times have I told you guys to stop the horseplay?

Eighty-eight?

At least.

    Do you the platitude or the truth (about whether they will learn to stop the horseplay)?

    btw I teach at a boys’ school… I see the truth on a daily basis… it requires a special brand of courage… ;P

    Hey, I love comments — any way I can get them. But feel free to lie to me next time, m’kay? :)

    Through meaningful life experiences and the guidance of loving adults, your boys will learn to recognise the danger signs of activities likely to result in harm to others or damage to property. They will learn to think before they act. They will objectively assess the risk factors and abandon plans that are unsafe. They will act as role models for their peers, and be the voice of reason in group of rampaging teenagers.
    Your sons will be a Force For Good.
