Probably every parent has the same feelings I have — when Chad leaves home, I kinda hold my breath til he gets back. Usually when he walks in the door, I’ll ask how was your trip? The answer is almost always just fine! But as the hours/days pass, I get more information . . usually information that I could’ve lived without knowing.
He decided to tell me today about getting tangled up with an electric fence over the weekend. Since Chad took his first steps (probably before!), if there’s something to get into, some way to get hurt, some way to get in trouble, Chad can do it.
If you haven’t read about Chad’s ski trip, you should read it. Then you’ll have a whole new respect for me as a mom! 🙂 Maybe it’s sympathy — not respect!
He’s 20 years old. I have to trust that one day he’s going to think before he acts. As of Saturday morning, Chad has a healthy respect for electric fences.
