I have once before told you why I don't have an advice blog.
But in this case, I feel duty bound to make an exception. Some information is just too important not to pass along.
Me: How was school?
Jacob: Good! I was so good again I didn't get a one or a two or a three!
Me: Okaaayyyy.... whatever that means.
Jacob: But look what happened. *pointing to his knee that sported a big band aid*
Me: Oh no! What happened?
Jacob: Well, umm...I don't know. My tummy muscles split open my knee.
Me: *blank stare, crickets chirping* Your stomach muscles split open your knee?
Jacob: Ya! 'Cause I was doing this airplane, *starts a demonstration* you stand on one leg like this and it makes your tummy muscles strong, then it split open my knee.
Me: Well, okay then.
So be warned. Next time you're working those abs, be sure to keep a first aid kit handy.
Sounds like your knees just might need it.
Hey! Maybe my kids should have a day on my blog where they can offer you all advice on your life problems, cooking questions, gardening and cleaning concerns, discipline insight, or whatever!
And the best part is, I wouldn't even charge you... yet.
So, send all your questions to my super intelligent and always right (or so they tell me) children at firstname.lastname@example.org
We could call it... "Wisdom Wednesday". Or some other super tacky blog title.
It will change your life.
I can tell.
