Back to School Can't Come Soon Enough!
Once the web heads figure out the nuances of this site I will start my┬ávideo blog "Bill's┬áEye View," videos of what happens in the Break Room during commercials.┬á Until then, for Kane-o's sake, I'll┬áblog the "old fashion" way.
If you have school age kids you probably have September 8th circled, starred, and asterisk'ed on your calendar.┬á Why?┬á (Cue the Hallelujah Choir) IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!┬á This is the time of┬á summer, when camps have ended and boredom sets in, that the parental advent calendar begins.┬á┬á
At my house boredom paid a visit today and┬ábrought it's friend┬áinjuries.┬á My 8 year-old son wanted to see what it would be like to slide down the basement stairs in big rubber storage bin.┬á The equivlent of indoor luge, or bob sledding.┬á If you are a dude, you can see where this idea would be appealing to an 8 year old boy.┬á The whole event lasted less than 3 seconds, began with a WOOO - HOOO and ended with a crash, a painful scream and a few big scratches down his back!┬á
I am learning that this time of year is dangerous.┬á I am sure as my boys get older their creative ways to idle away the hours will lead to more┬áexotic injuries, yes I said exotic injuries.┬á Look for┬áa blog in a few years about how they jumped from the roof into the pool, but missed...it's coming!
I know I am not alone in this, what creative things have your kids done during these final days of summer that have ended in the Emergency Room?┬á What kind of stunts did you pull off as a kid in the final days of summer?┬á Think about it.┬á Now admit it, if you saw your kid doing the shit you did, you'd lose your shit!
