A couple weeks ago Jake took on mowing the front yard by himself for the first time.
He called me out to help him empty the bag. When I got outside my neighbor yelled down to me:
“Hey…MURPHY!”…followed by a little wave…
What? You don’t see my neighbor? Let me help you.
I yelled, “My eyes! My eyes!” and helped Jake empty the lawn bag.
Jake was not deterred. We don’t have a self-propelled lawnmower. He needed all his concentration.
Our neighbor – concentrating on his yard:
Jake: pure effort…
Our neighbor…not so pure:
Just so you know, I covered his eyes to protect the innocent. That would be his wife.
(There was a reason…stay tuned for that in the next post!)
