Home Sick and Beating His Dad


Douglas is home from school today. Yesterday he came down with a bad cough. I’m keeping him home until it totally clears up.

I haven’t been able to get much work done around here. We got to enjoy a bacon & eggs breakfast together. And we played a few games of Chess.

I stupidly lost my Queen in the last game and he proceeded to take away all my pieces one by one until it was just my King left. Then he chased me into a corner into checkmate, all while avoiding stalemate.

Kid’s ruthless, even if he isn’t feeling 100%.
