This week's installment of Two Haiku Tuesday brings with it the topic of: adaptation.
I had just finished selecting the prompt when Max gave me a pretty good scare. He had been asleep in our room for a couple of hours and Kat was getting ready for bed in the guest room across the hall. Suddenly I look up and see Max walking into the guest room, having made absolutely no noise in the process.
I'm not sure I can properly convey how seeing a toddler-sized creature silently approaching my wife, while Greg's recent prose is swirling around my subconscious, in our darkened home feels. But I'll do my best by saying that it was, however briefly, bloody terrifying.
In other news: one more box day in the books. Went pretty smoothly, thanks in large part to my parents keeping Max busy so that Kat could join me in the garden this morning.
Next Tuesday could be a little more challenging without them around.
He will change his ways
for just a few days; must get
more grandparent hugs

I walk on two feet,
though my Daddy still has gills;
change can come quickly
