Blake made a list of each participator in the first annual Tanner Family Talent Show. Next to each name, he wrote a yes or a no depending on whether or not that person had a talent to perform. Everyone had a ‘yes’ by their name except dad and Crew, who had ‘no’s’. I laughed pretty hard when I saw his list. He explained himself by saying, “Well, you know, dad has crutches…”
I ensured him that his dad still had talents even though he was on crutches. It actually became the running joke in our family. We pointed out each and every one of Troy’s talents in front of the boys for a few weeks. We didn’t want them to think their dad was completely useless. And after some consideration, Blake came to the conclusion that Crew could be included too.
