Beware of the Children
So... in the spirit of the season should I remove the "Beware of the Children" sign from my front door for Christmas? I think not. With my daughter being sort of crippled, we've had even more than the usual quota of kids hanging around so it seems like useful signage to me. She's managing to get around pretty well on her crutches, although her "good" leg and arms are now sore too. She actually walked a couple of blocks to her friend Allie's house on Friday. I was amazed she could make it that far on crutches. From there they wanted to go to another friends house that was even further away. At that point she was pretty tired and didn't think she could do it, but her friends, being the resourcefull kids they are, figured out a solution. They got Allie's little brother's red wagon out of the garage, put Sarah in it, wrapped her in a blanket and pulled her the couple blocks to their friends house. I would have loved to have had a picture of that!
