Sometimes, all it takes is looking at a problem in a new way to find a solution. I was reminded of this a while ago when I posted on Facebook that Connor had gone to the Emergency Room. Again. This time, he was there to get stitches after his head collided with a square column in the basement. Because I cannot anticipate the next object Connor's body will come into contact with, I posited that it might be wise to just wrap the kid in bubble wrap.
But a friend of mine suggested that perhaps instead I should wrap the rest of the world in bubble wrap.
With snow finally surrounding us (ever thin as it may be), it seems like the world just got a little bit softer. Sort of like being wrapped in bubble wrap.
