Came across this picture tonight at work while I was going through my Flickr photostream, looking at old photos of various carnivals and fairs and getting super excited for the summer.

This is the perfect photographical metaphor for how I feel about parenting: the second you attempt to rest on your laurels is the second your kid is going to attempt to break his crown, splatter feces on the wall, cut the cat’s ear.

This photo still makes me laugh so hard.

    Thanks, Ally! I should note that he didn’t actually wind up falling!

    OMG, that picture is AMAZING. I don’t even know how you could capture the moment. I love it.

    :) If I remember correctly, I think I had the camera on the tripod and was just taking practice shots while Henry tried to get him to sit on the bench. It was lucky timing! I remember screaming very loud, and then after Henry caught him and he went unscathed, I laughed forever when I saw the picture!
