He's Resourceful, That Man of Mine

A couple of weeks ago we had a quick dinner at Del Taco (we try to enjoy such fine dining every once in awhile at least) and the kids all got a frisbee type toy in their meals. When we were loading up in the car to leave, John David threw his up and it happened to land right on a light fixture.

At that point I was of the mindset - "I guess you learned your lesson. Now get in the car and let's go." In fact, I think that's what I told the boy.

Daddy, is more compassionate (and patient) though. He went back in the restaurant (if you can call Del Taco that), grabbed a handful of straws and got back in the car. He began opening the straws and methodically put them together to make a very long pole.

I didn't think it would work. But it did.

And Daddy was a hero.
