A True Tale About Benjy [Parenting Theme, July]

Post by loyaleagle » Wed Jun 27, 2012 6:39 am

They say, "Don't walk before you can crawl." Apparently little Benjy never heard that particular expression, 'cause one day he hopped up and strolled right across the sittin' room -- skipped crawlin' altogether! Ma and I were a little taken aback, but it wasn't until he started runnin' that things got interesting. He ran up and down the stairs and out into the yard. A vague notion crossed my mind, but by then it was too late. Benjy had spread his pudgy arms and taken off, soaring skyward. Our boy never learned to crawl, but I hope he can land.

Here's one for the parenting theme. Pretty happy with this one...might even read it for The Dribblecast (if Norm passes on it, of course)!

New Title:
Benjy

Made some small edits:
