It’s Amy’s Birthday Party Day.
I am inside blowing up balloons with three children when Nathan sticks his head in through the kitchen window.
“Honey, I have absolutely no problem with your knot tying abilities. When it comes to tying knots, you’re excellent.”
I give him a strange look as he continues.
“But when it comes to your judgement of structural integrity? Well, sometimes, you’re not so great at it.”
By this stage I am confused. Structural integrity? Of what? NO IDEA.
“The balloons you tied to the front fence? They blew away.”
Oh. There’s the problem.
“But your knot didn’t come undone. They flew away, with the nail.”
Next time: Don’t tie balloons to a nail.
