Babies vs. Guitars

Lately, Sophie jumps. Everywhere. All the time. Over everything. So it makes sense that she would eventually jump over something she shouldn’t—like, the boys. Upon witnessing this last night, Andy said, “Sophie, don’t jump over the boys.”

Tonight, Sophie jumped over Andy’s guitar. Upon witnessing this, Andy said, “Sophie! Don’t ever, ever, ever jump over my guitar like that! Please, never do that again, OK? Promise me you’ll never do that again. You absolutely can not jump over my guitar like that.”

I asked him why the difference in reaction. His response? “Boys heal. Guitars don’t.”
