Family Avoids Watery Death
After being the parent of two small children for ten days I am happy to report that I have not lost my mind. I have misplaced it several times, but only temporarily. Last Saturday we headed over to New Hampshire to find a Target store in order to lay-in some additional small-child supplies: rubber nipples, rocket cups, bottle brushes, bales of diapers, food grinder, illustrated flatware, etc. We were crammed into a Subaru and the three-year-old was having a tantrum because the six-month-old was having a fit. My wife and I just looked at each other and started laughing. It was that or drive directly into the Connecticut River. From time to time you read in the newspaper about these things happening. Parents of small children are never surprised.
