Looks Like We Made It After All
I've seen a lot by having 3 children. One has been the epitome of Miss Manners ever since she was old enough to know better, another has had his moments (peeing outside the van in the garage, running through the house with the roll of toilet paper flying behind him, etc..) and the third one makes a goat look like it went to Martha Stewart's charm school.
After 3 years of fringe behavior, ranging from pooping on the floor leading to the garage to whizzing in a vase in his room to grossing out Sunday School teachers 3 out of 4 weeks every month, we've always been right on the edge.
Yesterday? We made The Show.
My 3 year old, 30 pound baby boy managed to shut down the community swimming pool for a 24 hour period, complete with a padlock on the gate and a note letting ALL the other neighbors know the pool was unavailable due to a "public health concern".
Now I know how Earl Woods felt when Tiger made that first birdie at the same age.
God help me, but the first thing I thought of when Ang called and filled me in was the following scene from "Caddyshack".
There is no freaking way I'm ever making it to the age of 50.
