Captain Obvious

As a father, one of my more important responsibilities is to keep my son safe. 

And alive.

This is especially difficult since he has a limited understanding of what is "dangerous".

And even more so since he has a thorough understanding of what is "sarcastic".

Like earlier today, when he was leaning against the elevator door on our way down to finish the laundry.

Me: "Dude, get away from there.  That's dangerous."

Lil Sippy Cup: "No it's not.  That's the elevator door."

Me (slowly shaking my head and whispering): "Damn it."
