falling with style

last week:

Harrison is standing on the stool ready to get his teeth brushed and he is out-of-his-head-tired — can’t stand still. He begins to lean against the sink and slowly by accident pushes the stool away from the sink.

“I’m falling. Help! I’m falling… mommy! I’m falling! Help!”

…and on and on while I’m calmly telling him to stand up and stop pushing himself off the sink. I turn to grab the toothpaste and he continues:

“I’m falling… I’m falling with style!”

It’s a Toy Story line. He hasn’t seen that movie in ages. It was hilarious.

  1. So Harrison. Must check out your blog more often. Just noticed this.

  2. I was trying to reach Desley and remembered her love of this blog so I am reaching out through this to contact her. I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Bill and quite shocked. I have not been in touch for several years but as we prepare to move to another new home I was looking to Desley for her expertise in creating beautiful window treatments and upholstering. My deepest sympathies to you and your family for the loss of such a warm, loving and kind man. I will never forget the love he showed my beloved goldens over the years. Also, his humor when I would come up with yet another impossible request was always so appreciated. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so sorry to be so late to reach out.
