Heroes come in all shapes and sizes.
Earlier today, unbeknownst to you, it came in the form of this guy.
Unfortunately, here he is again…
All 6’1″ and 230 pounds of mouth-breathing sexiness with stickers on his face.
He may not look like much, but after making the kids breakfast, packing their lunches and running backpacks to the car…this ‘guy’ realized that his wife and kids had accidentally locked everyone outside…with a newborn in the house, hanging from a door-jamb swing, all alone.
With no spare key, unlocked window or access to dynamite to light up the morning suburbia sky, this devoted parent stopped to focus.
This ‘guy’, is me.
I summoned my life experiences and hours of watching ‘Cops’ in syndication and quickly found the answer. A weighted exercise ‘Body Bar’ that my wife tells me not to throw away because ‘I’m going to use that!’, but never does.
I felt like King Arthur, pulling the heavy staff of metal from the depths of our garage, cluttered with folding lawn chairs and a thousand rolls of gift wrap that won’t go away.
I told my army (disheveled wife, late for work and two toddlers in rain gear, strangling yogurt tubes) to ‘BACK UP!’ as I prepared to become included in EVERY. SINGLE. PARENTING. HISTORY. BOOK. EVER.
It only took two blows (that’s what she said) to compromise the heavy steel door.
My wife ran inside and the kids cheered.
Mason had no clue that I had just saved his life (or two hours of mental anguish, watching him through the window, sitting in a door-jamb swing, before a locksmith arrived)…
…but rest assured, it’s now on the internet. So he’ll find out…eventually.

Once, my two kids purposely locked me out when I went out for the mail and then the door stuck and she was too weak to get it back open. I used the code on the garage to get in there, but the screen door was locked. I had just installed it and wasn’t about to crash through it unless it was an emergency. Talked my 4 year old through unlatching the hook and eyes on top and bottom like a hostage negotiator. It happens to the best of us!
