Not So Brave



I like to think I am a good Mom for the boys. I am certainly not a 'girly girl'. I don't mind the mud, scratches, and bruises. I like to see the boys take risks.

However, I recently found something I do not like to witness: wood chopping. For the past few weekends, the boys having been helping Dad chop wood. The boys' job had been to see how high they can stack the wood.

Dad took it to the next level and taught Andrew how to split the wood. Watching a wild and impulsive kid with an ax is not my idea of weekend fun.

Yes, I take pride in the strength and focus Andrew exhibited, I just don't want to see it in action.
