What we, as parents, are up against...

I took the boys to this playground at the Mall on Monday night. The playground, for some reason, is made up of soft-plastic displays that are loosely related to energy. Or not. There's a white electric company truck, an energy-saving lightbulb, a TV, and a light switch. But there's also a silver pipe, a hollow log, and a flower. Overall, the message conveyed is "Conserve energy. Or something. Plus nature."

Anyway. In this video, you will get a dramatic look at what Sweetie and I are up against as parents. This is Mr F and Mr Bunches playing. Mr F is in the foreground at the start, in blue overalls. You'll see Mr Bunches in the background playing behind him, in a striped shirt. Mr Bunches appears not to be paying any attention to me as I try to get some footage of Mr F. Keep an eye on what he does...

He not only did that that time, but four more times. Once he made it all the way over and I had to jump over and get him back.

You move pretty fast for a guy who just turned 40! Well done! They look like an adorable handful.
