Guest Post: Rebuttal from the Destructive Dad

The man in question

Dear Sam,

While it may seem like a tornado passed through out living room, I'd like to point out a couple flaws in your "14 toddler " theory. I will admit that there is a fair amount of stuff on the floor, however, half of it is two feet or less from its home and the other half came from Will's music basket. As you know, the music basket is generally completely emptied unless the piano happens to be the only instrument removed from said basket. I did intend doing some clean up before lunch, but I got distracted by my iPad (surprise, surprise) and once I heard you reassembling the music basket, I figured you had the rest under control.

The real exception I have with your post is the use of the word destructive. Nothing in the photo was damaged in any way, shape or form. In fact, if you reference the word in a dictionary, I'm pretty sure you'll find a photo of our adopted child (i.e. our dog) whom I'm more than willing to get rid of but you will defend until the death. I'm just sayin'.

In conclusion, us dad's are not by nature, destructive. Lazy? Perhaps. Messy? More often than not. But destructive? Not so much.

Thank you for the opportunity to explain your well-spun photo.


Your Husband
