He's a very good looking lad.

What is he, about 4 and a half or 5?  He looks a little bit larger than T.  :)  Anyway, he's a doll.

Git jr. jr. is quite fortunate to have a Git sr. sr. to help him in and out of trees... He may even survive until he learns the proper tumbling down techniques with no broken bones.

Good guess, Ali - he'll be 5 next month.

Oh, if the kid is to have any sort of active life, bones will be broken. Just as long as they are not the nose... That could make a guy look like Gérard Depardieu

Eh, I dunno. When I was a little kid, I ran around and climbed everything, slid down firepoles, did gymnastic jumps and stuff (not that I was good at it). I've always had a talent for being clumsy, too. I didn't manage to break any bones, however. My kiddo will probably make up for that, she's already deliberately flung herself off the trampoline this summer (and onto the grass) "just to see if it would be soft" when she landed. Turns out, it wasn't.  :P

Yeah well... Some casts here and there are good for them in the long run. Strengthen the bones so when they are teenagers, they can take a harder whacking from some jealous whatever, the cops or just some asshole who wants their beer.

You have to let them take some risks; most survive.  Without a proper upbringing, they turn into yukky people like Liberal Democrats.  ;)

Worse. They turn into easy to get to sensitive types.

Much the same thing.  I want Cap'n B to be a real man who eats his kittens raw.  ;)

It's OK, I've given him the lecture about winning at all costs. He won't make the same mistake again :D

Yes, hairy balls and all that. That's good and proper, that is.

Awwwwwwww!  I'm proud of him too!  What a good-hearted little guy to stop racing and help a fallen classmate.  You guys are doing something right.  :)
