Some of my favorites:
” Sit on a front porch and enjoy a popsicle or ice cream treat. Make your own popsicles with white grape or apple juice. A pediatric dietician for the Clinical Nutrition Department offers a fruit smoothie recipe: Blend together small amounts of low fat yogurt, milk, fresh fruit and ice cubes."
(Jeez, whatever happened to Popsicles, Dreamsicles and DQ ?”)
"Summer is travel time. The key to traveling safely, says The Department of Infectious Diseases, is to visit a physician at least six weeks before departure. This allows time for immunizations, such as tetanus, hepatitis, measles, mumps, polio and influenza, to provide the highest protection."
(Kids, we’re going to visit Grandma, lets all go to the doctor’s for our shots!!!)
"Plan a fun-filled family trip before the children return to school. Jeanne Weintraub, R.N., Pediatric Health Center, reminds parents never to attempt to deliver constructive discipline while driving. Wait until it is safe and then pull off the road as far as possible."
(heh, how many times have we all heard – or said – “Don’t make me come back there!!!!”)
"Children relish unscheduled days at home. Teach them to play safely on outside trampolines, in swimming pools, on bikes and skateboards and in-line skates. A n estimated 40 percent of all childhood injury-related Emergency Department visits occur between May and August."
We live in England in 58 and my father bought a "toy" pram for my sister that was so beautiful he kept it in the garage after she out grew it and in 1975 when he found out my sister was pregnant he totally refurbished it. (yes, it was big enough for an infant!)
When he found out that she was having twins (it wasn't that big!) my wife and I just learned "we" were pregnant so he reserved it for us and....we had twins!
I don't have any idea what happend to it (both parents are dead). I need to ask my sister or my nieces.
"my wife and I just learned "we" were pregnant"
"We," talk about the height of male arrogance!!
I don't remember the "we" part when she had to have a "C" section.
