Brookline Patch Column: Snakes in a Crib

Squeaker has recently started to tell us that there are snakes in her crib when she wants to be taken out. Her imagination reminded me of my own at her age, as I too remember being afraid of things that weren't really there.

Unfortunately, as the parent now and not the child, I find that there are some real fears out there, not as benign as imaginary snakes in a crib.

In my The Brookline Parent column at Brookline Patch this week, I discuss some of these things that happened last week and last month, and how they've affected me.

If that's too heavy for you, there's a cute picture of Squeaker and Muffin with a funny caption.

So, go read Snakes in a Crib for the picture and the great quote from osewalrus , if nothing else.

I also have been feeling more worried lately, though it's hard to know which threats are real issues of concern. We just have to hope and pray that our kids won't fall victim.
In the end, all we can do is protect them the best we can.
