But Daddy, why not?

We have two noisy cats. Because of that, we have two cages.

The two cages came from my mother-in-law (who is awesome). Because of that, the cages are large enough for mid-sized dogs.

The boys can easily squeeze inside of them. Because of that, Secondborn wants to sleep in one of the cages.

...And yet, no matter how often he asks, or how compellingly he begs, I can't shake the image of me, in handcuffs, trying to explain to CPS that he was only in the cage because he asked for it - not "asked for it", actually, um, y'know, asked for it. This isn't going to end well, is it?


  1. This gave me a good laugh.

  2. Well, it would seem that things are not always as they appear. :D Now let the boy sleep in the cage, just don't lock the door on it.

  3. I, um, I wouldn't have to lock the door. He can. By himself. From inside the cage.

    What he can't do... is unlock it.

    1. Oi! Sometimes my ideas are not very good.
