We know our kids get completely out of whack the first week of school, the last week of school, etc. – anytime the normal routine is imploded.
The second basic truth we ascribe to is that, for the most part, all of our “bad parenting” is a direct result of the epic failure of all of our “good parenting.” This is a tale of just such a digression.
Which brings us to the napkin.
Guess what? The napkin still can’t find its way to Toly’s lap without this oft repeated request! Shocking, we know.
Dad watched amazed and horrified. Or horrified and amazed, we’re not sure which.
Then, the Tolinator noticed a second foreign object which he subsequently removed with the same finger. Needing to remove the object from the finger yet again, he WIPED IT ON HIS SHIRT – AGAIN!
At this point, he did glance up at his father and the look he saw must have been something between “that was inappropriate” and “you should run like hell NOW!” because his face clearly registered that an error had been made and detected which would, no doubt, lead to some unpleasant consequence(s).
Here’s where the “bad parenting” comes in.
Toly Hansbrough came down to breakfast, looked his Dad right square in the eye, and calmly placed his napkin in his lap.
His Dad winked at him.
Time will tell…
