Setting an example

My 5 year old son stood on top of the dinning table while his brother was moving about in his walker. “You are not setting a good example for your brother.”

He then carefully jumped off the table and lay on the floor depending to be dead, with his tongue sticking out. Few seconds later he stood up and addressed his baby brother’s watchful eyes and said, “You see that what will happen when you stand on the table you will fall and die.”

I laughed at his improvised response to my comment. He just smiled and stood triumphant as the older brother. As if he had it all figured and him stepping on the table was part of a plan :)
