Controlled Exit

Hu-Dad said this is about as good of a controlled exit from the house we ever achieve.

We tend to bounce, jostle, and race when we move from point to point, so Hu-Dad was quite impressed with our controlled exit the other day. Landon led the way with an orderly line following. We were probably surprised Landon was leading rather than bouncing around the house.

    I think this is suspicious. They’re plotting something….

    Controlled and Landon in the same sentence does sound comical. He couldn’t wait to go out.
