Heart of a young parent
Inside a middle-aged host.
The floor may not be lava,
But your ankle sure is toast.
My dear 46-year-old husband did this to his ankle in the middle of our roadtrip to Montana last week. He was playing “the floor is lava” with the 6-year-old. There are many advantages to having your kids later in life, but occasionally your body decides to remind you that there are consequences for your foolishness.
The 6-year-old was the one who told me exactly how this came about. I’m glad she’s around to make sure no detail is left unshared.
