Hospital doc: ‘It sounds really dangerous. Because it is.’ Plus, meet West Lafayette’s new youth voice with the city council. And reporting live outside her son’s bedroom, it’s Kayla Sullivan
Ms Sullivan's live report took me down memory lane. My oldest son was very cooperative most of the time, but I can remember meltdowns when I had to carry him out of a store like a sack of potatoes to keep him from kicking my pregnant belly. The youngest wasn't cooperative if he got bored, so we learned to find eating places with lots of activity and fast service until he grew out of the toddler phase. I don't know how many times, I have quietly folded cranes and nests out of random bits of paper and handed them to toddlers who are wigging out in restaurants or airplanes. The cranes distract the toddlers and give the parents a break. It's okay, I say to them, these are the easy years. Wait until they start hunting with your cars as teenagers; that's the tough stuff. Parenting isn't easy, but a sense of humor, which Ms Sullivan has will keep you sane.
"Don't get in a MVC" ... one if the more insensitive (?) pieces of advice concerning COVID I've heard. I'm get that it's true, but it's sad.
