Speaking from a few emergency rooms of our own, it's amazing that kids survive our attempts to raise them... Merry Christmas, REW. Hope everyone does OK these next few weeks.

It's also amazing that we as parents survive the process.

REW
My heart goes out to you and the little one, hopefully recovery will happen and in a few years this will only be a fading memory. Little ones heal amazingly well.

Having gone through kids and grandkids (still have some little ones now) I can attest how fast and curious they are. Got to keep them away from the stove and keep all handles turned inward.

Re: Baby and small dog containment

We almost lost our first son,twice, once when he went down the basement stairs in one of those walkers with wheels, and another time when we just turned our back and he started down the ladder into the pool.

Kiddy Proofing is tough and sometimes no matter how much you try things do go wrong.

Burn Treatment has come along way, scarring is now reduced markedly

I am looking foreward to Grand Kids, but am also a little concerned?.

Re: Baby and small dog containment

Another winner for containment, bought one yesterday and have a second one on order for inside containment, as we're moving the 'superyard' outside to the patio to take advantage of the nice weather. 73 yesterday, 74 forecast for today!

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...=UTF8&v=glance

Like the superyard, these can be joined together to form an enclosed play yard, joined to two walls in a corner to make a corner play yard, or used to span a wide opening. Hard to climb as its fabric instead of an open cell wall. Very easy to install...pay no attention to the instructions that have you levelling templates and drilling holes, and throw out the too-short screws that come with it. I just set it up, adjusted the length, and ran some 2" wood screws through the mounting holes and into a wall stud. Took 3 minutes.
