Younger Son was instructed to mow the lawn while The Husband and I were grocery shopping. When we returned home, the mower was on the lawn, but the grass was still growing tall.
"I couldn't get it to start," Younger Son explained.
The Husband gave the cord a yank, and the mower purred to life. He shut it off again and looked at Younger Son.
"Huh," said Younger Son. "I guess it just needed a really big jerk."
(The Husband laughed until he cried and said he's never been more proud of his boy.)
