Skinned knees are no big deal. Preferable, even.

My wife doesn’t even flinch at the sight of a bloody knee.

She quickly and dispassionately tells my daughter that skinned knees are a sign that she had fun. Even Band-Aids are optional when it comes to wounded knees.

My daughter has embraced this idea. She wears her skinned knees like bloody badges of honor.

It’s important to choose a spouse who will also be a good mother to your children. I knew Elysha would be good, but I never realized how good.
