Tony Woodlief has a very funny article on raising boys in today’s WSJ. An excerpt:
Judging by the greeting cards, Father’s Day is like a Sabbath for many men, a day Dad puts his feet up. I think the Almighty was able to rest one day a week because he had just the two kids, only one of whom was male. I could really use a restful Father’s Day, but recently I found my sons huddled over a book on traps, which makes me fear that they’re planning for my gift to be something live. Already this spring they’ve captured a snake, a bullfrog and at least one deadly spider. While other men think about golfing or napping tomorrow, I’m praying I can weather the day without getting bitten.
