He Reminded Me of Henry

We spotted this little fella in the Ancient Statues section of the Vatican Museum. How strange, thought I, that a thousand years ago there was a woman just like me dealing with a little imp just like Henry.

Looking at this sculpture through the rose colored glasses of several hundred years, well it sure helps me put things in perspective.

Boys will be boys, I said to myself, and babies don’t keep.

    I wonder how the sculptor got them to stand still.

  2. Love that! We have chickens. And that’s about how boys treat ’em. Makes me feel better. =)
