    Well, not really, but that certainly got your attention, didn't it. I know I'm going to catch hell when she sees that I've blogged about it, though.

    Here's the scenario. I was sitting on the couch at the foot end, playing on my laptop. I'm sure I was likely checking out the latest headlines on Digg or catching up on celebrity gossip at WWTDD (yes, I'm a sucker for that stuff). More than likely, I was reading all the blogs I've got bookmarked. I've found that to be a much better way to spend my time than just blankly look at google's homepage, wondering what topic to search for next.

    Sarah was lying on the couch, across 2 of the 3 cushions. I was sitting on the last. Tyler was lying on Sarah's chest. The two of them were napping sleeping. Seemingly out of nowhere, Tyler decides he wants to reposition himself. He kinda just shifted his head off to one side, but he's got a big, heavy head. The weight of his head, and his lack of toned core muscles caused his entire body to roll off of Sarah's chest.

    I think Sarah reacted first, but it was only by a single micro-second. Sarah swung over and snatched him before he had any real chance of falling completely off. All I could muster was a complete body-jerk reaction and an involuntary spewing of a colorful phrase that would be a synonym to "HOLY CRAP!"

    I said that phrase 2 or 3 more times afterward. Sarah's eyes were about bugged out of her head. And our little Tyler, well he slept through the entire thing.

    I knew, at that moment, what I would be blogging about today. I don't think Sarah will end my life right away though. She was gone all last week, and has fallen behind on reading my blog. She probably won't read this until next week, and will, hopefully have a sense of humor about it.

    If this blog isn't updated within the next 3 or 4 days, please call the authorities.

    Joe, you gotta hang on to these, because if you're like most of us you will put the boy at risk many, many more times than she will. Good news is that they're amazingly resilient - they nearly bounce. Don't ask how I know this.

    It just goes to show you the even-better-than-cat-like reflexes of a Mom!

    haha! You ain't even kidding. She's a ninja mom! But I'm still holding onto it because I'm going to do much worse when he gets older.
