FATHER FEARS FUTURE
Several evenings ago in the Cupit house, family story time was underway. The book of choice for the night was a new truck book, a Christmas present from Aunt Jane. Things were moving along. The children were taking turns peeking in the windows of the interactive pages. On the last page, the book instructs the reader to match a picture of a real person to the correct truck. For example, there is a picture of a female police officer that matches a police emergency truck. One of the pictures features a fireman. Laurel pointed to his picture and said, "He's cute!" Brad perked up in a flash. "What did she say?!?" He admitted that he did not like the way that made him feel. The teenage years are going to be rough on him. Thank goodness that's more than a few years down the road.
