This conversation took place a few minutes ago in our living room.
Daddy: Hey boys, come here! Who do you think is braver — you guys or a baby duckling?
Boys: We are!!
Daddy: Even when trying to ride your bikes and learn to swim in the deep end?
Boys: (less enthusiastically) Yes, we are!!
Daddy: I want you to see this.
Daddy: So boys, the next time Mommy and Daddy try to get you to ride your bikes not too far off the ground, or encourage you to keep trying to tread water a little longer in the deep end of the pool, I want you to think of this video. At least we’re not asking you to belly flop from the top of a tree.
Thanks for the lesson in bravery and encouragement, Discovery Channel.
