Balance

Overheard while Punkin was teaching Little Man to set up dominoes upright so that they fall:

P: "You have to put them like this - close enough together so that when they fall, this one will knock that one down."

LM: "oh"

P: "No, no - not too close - that won't work either. It has to be just right."

It struck me when she said it - it's profound in a way. Close, but not too close. Always looking for the balance. Isn't that the way life is?

This is mommaroar's friend in AL! Just stopped by to say hi!
We (at least from the west) call "roll a yard" - "tp'ing" (house, yard, car, etc).
My little guy would have LOVED the monster truck jam, too!

We always called it TP'ing a house. I think I need to travel more!!

We just saw an episode of Reading Rainbow that had a segment with dominoes. It was about chain reactions and the main book of the episode was if you give a mouse a cookie. The kids really liked it. They wanted me to get the dominoes out and I've forgotten - thanks for the reminder!! :D
