One of these things just doesn't belong
Can you tell which one is not like the others
By the time I finish this song?
Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which one just doesn't belong?"
Thank you Sesame Street for furnishing the theme song to the pictures I've pasted below:
It depends on who you ask.
If you ask Pete, He would have said they ALL belong. He got a great idea (from his sister Megan) to kneel on all fours on a skateboard and let Megan push him on the ice.
Guess what happened?
He fell off and landed on his face. His nose bled and his cheek got all scratched up.
When they came into the house and told me the story I just shook my head.
Megan did it first, he says (which means so I thought I could do it too).
Megan is a very athletic 11 year old. Pete has cerebral palsy, balance issues, dexterity issues and big-time following issues (meaning he does whatever his little sister Megan tells him to do).
A few days pass.
The ice melts.
Megan drags a big sheet of plywood to the back of the house where there is a small hill. She puts the skateboard on the piece of wood and tells Pete to get on.
She gives him a push.
Guess what happened.
Pete lands on his face and lies in the mud like a slug and cries.
And Megan says, "I didn't push hard. I just lifted up the skateboard."
If Pete makes it to adulthood in one piece it will be miraculous.
The funny thing is if I don't hide that skateboard (or throw it away) they will do it again (and the same thing will happen).
We adults act just as brainless. We want things to change but we keep doing things the same way over and over because we convince ourselves eventually our way will work.
I wonder if God laughs, cries or just shakes His head?
