Not quite clear on the concept

A neighbor came across the street to visit with my husband, who was working outside. A while later, his young son decided to join them.

'Uhm, did you look both ways before crossing the street?' my husband asked the boy when he got across.

The boy's eyes got big. 'No! I forgot!' he exclaimed, whereupon he ran across the street without looking, set up on the other side, carefully looked both ways, and came back, proud of himself for getting it right this time.

"I can see we need to work on this," his father said, once he recovered enough to talk.

We came very close to having one less little boy on the block this evening when a neighbor child went winging across the street on his bike, only a few feet away from an oncoming car.

I am going to have to make sure that this child never leaves my house without an escort to get him across the street. (He's 6)

There's got to be a sermon in there somewhere--just not sure what it is. Can I link anyway?

Barb, I'm glad your neighbor boy only had a close call.

Mama Squirrel, Link away whenever you feel like it, on any post you like.
