What Daddy Does When Iain Gets a Scrape


First, guess what we saw on our walk last night? Yup. A snake. We think it's a gopher snake, but it's hard to tell when you don't go pick it up, look closely at it, study herpetology for 20 years, and grow up here. But we think it's a gopher snake. It's hiney was in that hole on the left, but it really doesn't look like a rattler. Still, it was a snake. We walked in the other direction.

Back to the title. Iain fell on the porch the day before yesterday, and he got a pretty good scrape on his left knee. I gave him cuddles, band-aids, neosporin, and ice cream. Charles gave him this:


Take one guess which one got him to stop crying? Here's a hint: it wasn't the ice cream.

Dads know things. Like how to make 2-story bridges.
