Where the inside of my mind leaks onto the screen.

Boy Pile

I often think of the old "My Buddy" commercials when I watch my boys play:

"My Buddy, My Buddy, Wherever I go, he goes.
My Buddy, My Buddy, I’ll teach him everything that I know.
My Buddy and me, Like to climb up a tree.
My buddy and me, We're the best friends that could be.
My Buddy, My Buddy, My Buddy and Me!"

Lately, if one boy piles on top of mom or dad, suddenly, we have a whole pile of boys. 

Although much of what he does is inspired by older brothers, Dylan is definitely forging his own dare-devilish path.  Where Adam was naturally scared of everything and Alex possessed equal parts courage and sense, Dylan is 100% fearless.  What started out as a game of sliding down my legs turned into a game of diving headfirst off the bed with no mom-shaped safety net. 

Listen closely and you can hear Kirk encouraging him to dive.  Yeah.  We're that kind of parents.  I have dibs on Dylan breaking the first bone.

In my defense he did it on his own. I was just trying to get him to repeat the trick for the camera.
