  • A baby changes everything

    When my daughter Alison was a baby, I bundled her up in her white snowsuit (we lived in Northern Maine), slipped on the icy sidewalk and dropped her. Thankfully, the snowsuit protected her and she survived to spit up all over my husband's suede jacket.

    When she was big enough to do so, she took the knobs off our stereo. We found all but one, which we feared she had swallowed because she kept coughing. Panicked, we took her to the emergency room to be x-rayed - no sign of the stereo knob. We found it days later in the laundry basket.
