I think my kids have a serious case of spring fever. They've been a little crazy lately. Maybe that's because it's been so nice outside.
So today, my son jumped off the bus with his arms in an extended position.
"Whoa, buddy," I said. "What are you doing?"
He proceeded to run really fast, then jump in the air, with his arms in that extended position. Next thing I knew, he was face down on the ground.
"Hey, are you okay?"
He got up and brushed himself off. "I don't get it. Why didn't I stay in the air?"
"Because you're not a bird."
"But I have wings!"
"Sorry, kid. You're wings don't work."
So now he's working on inventing a pair that will. Good luck with that!
