Never go against the family

A line in The Godfather reminds us to “Never go against the family.” I learned that one the hard way, well of course not as hard as if I were actually in the mafia. I lost the bet. I should never have bet against my son. I should have known that this incredibly persistent child would soon be walking. But I also kind of figured betting against him was like betting against my favorite team. Either way, you win. For my punishment of “going against the family,” I will now have to bake a pie. Never done that before. Still better than the original bet, which was nixed by the wife. Fortunately. Here’s the video.

  1. Well we are using the word “walking” fairly liberally. But nevertheless, I didn’t stipulate what exactly “walking” was. Yet he clearly does take a few steps as documented in the video. So I will make a pie. Humble pie, but I’m really excited he walked too. That’s kind of why I made the bet.
