The perils of boasting about your kids

My husband and I brag sometimes
about how proud we are of our kids,
which is something you can clearly only do
with your partner or the grandparents.

So it was that we were basking
in how mature our kids are
that they just watched
On Golden Pond with us and loved it,

how lucky that they aren’t only interested
in remakes and sequels,

when our 10-year-old son
came downstairs and asked:

“Is there an On Golden Pond 2?”

And after laughing for a long time,
I quietly thanked
the gods of humility
for not yanking
the reminder
too hard.
