Parenting is always in context

Jumping off a cliff never seems to make sense
If you were to have walked in to my son's room this morning 
Seen my wife and I dressing a half awake six year old
While he flopped to and fro
Like the Ronald McDonald ballon 
A windy day 
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
I expect that you would have questioned our sanity
Even after you learned we were braving the hig winds
So that he could help his mom make coffee
I expect you would say the same about the man leaping off the cliff
If you did not see the stampeding herd of elephants
