Squirrels Bounce

oh160913When my daughters were little and they fell down I would always point out that  kids bounce. Not very high. Or really at all. The point was they’re not these super fragile beings that need to be carefully cocooned every living second.

And then one day my daughter fell off a swing. In tears, she showed me her rapidly swelling wrist. I hugged her and told her to shake it off. My wife, the smart one, instantly realized it was more serious. Later, X-ray in hand, I was chastised by the sight of a clean total break of her radius.

So, basically, kids do not bounce. At least not all the time.

And I’m an idiot.
