Conference is on, David and I are sitting in the living room, and we hear this enormous crashing, banging, thunking thud from the stairs. Seasoned parents, we look at each other and wait- Bean’s shouts of joy reassure us all is well, and we turn back to the TV. Slowly, I look again towards David, “I know what he just did…”
“He got the Costco box from the hallway and went box surfing down the basement stairs.”
“Yup,” David creens his neck to looks down the hall, “the box is gone.”
We turned back to the TV and held hands, to the sounds our our kids thunking and bouncing down our stairs.
