When we were on furlough in America this summer, we stayed in a house for a few days that had crystal everywhere at hands reach of Carson, as well as a dog terrified of kids. And my kids love dogs. And crystal.
I couldn’t let them get to the indoor pool (within eyesight), and when I thought to let them play in the sand pit of a golf course backing up to the house, the owner warned me of an alligator in the golf course lake adjacent to the house.
I counted it a triumph to leave the house intact. With my children intact.
