“Lael, don’t. Daddy will get mad,” Seth says two or three times while I am working.
“What is Lael trying to do?” I ask as his words finally cut through the fog.
“Lael wants to thumbtack the blanket to the floor.”
“Lael NO! That’s very creative and very wrong.”
“Dad, do you want to know why Lael wants to thumbtack the blanket to the floor?”
“No. Just don’t do it.”
Need I say more?
