(The clouds are still out, mama is in bed, it’s not 7AM yet and the boys are playing Wii, I’m on my 6th cup of coffee and I have way too much time on my hands. Please come out sun! Until then, this is what I do with my spare time:)
I’m afraid outdoor time never did come yesterday. And as the day wore on, what I had considered our beautiful little place overlooking the ocean began to feel more like being locked in a utility closet with two young boys hyped up on chocolate milk and junk food. Thank God they couldn’t get their hands on the power tools!
Even without tools, the boys were still plenty dangerous.
Ian tried to jump start his acting career:
Ian: Do you have someone in your life who has slept through the revelation that too much sun is bad for your skin? Someone who favors ignorance over health? That someone in my life is my dad…
Dad: Hey Ian, I’m standing right here. You’re two years old, you don’t use words like revelation. And you can’t call me ignorant .
Ian: Dad, it’s a commercial, I have to say what sells.
Dad: Have you been talking to your uncle Tyler again?
Dad: Uhm, that would be take two Ian.
Dad: Never mind.
Ian: Do you have someone in your life who has slept through the revelation that too much sun is bad for your skin? Someone who favors ignorance over health? That someone in my life is my dad, and he hates sun screen. When he comes in from a day of defying all dermatological science, I hand him a bottle of Banana Boat Aloe Aftersun. It is the rub-free cooling relief for his sunburn, which allows him to devote all of his energy to listening to my mom call him stupid. Available in stores near you.
