When my family and I go on vacation, every one of us have to review some ground rules with my guys before every one of us can let them have some fun, for starters, there’s the staple of parenting rules – don’t touch anything. We make it clear that unless they see us using something, and giving them a clear invitation to touch it, they must keep their hands to themselves! Still, they are only children, and curiosity will get the best of them from time to time. Just recently, every one of us opted to go on a trip further up north to enjoy some time at a ski resort. At this resort, the four of us were able to rent a lake house that had radiant radiant floors, and a boiler to provide additional heat. It was incredibly comfortable in that suite, and the decor was top-notch. Among the decorations was an ancient wood-burning stove, which still had a connection where a pipe led up to the ceiling from where this stove sat, but despite the appearance of this thing making it seem functional, I knew this wasn’t the case. My boys, however? They didn’t! I told them not to touch the stove, no matter what. Sure enough, only fifteen minutes later, my husband and I aroused something burning from our room in the cabin. We ran to the residing room, where our guys were burning newspapers inside the stove. Turns out, the connection wasn’t legitimately real, so all of the smoke poured into our cabin! It took an minute to get the smoke out. Sure, I was mad – even though I just hope my guys learned their lesson!
