True Parenting Moments: Restraint

I have reached a critical spot in the video game. I have my little character carefully lined up for the nearly-impossible jump that will take him into the next area. I am focused entirely on the screen in front of me and the controller in my hands.

From the couch beside me, a quiet voice says: "I was going to say something, Daddy, but I am being quiet so you can concentrate."

Why, yes. Yes you were.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
