Oh man..I went to a baby shower this weekend with all first time yuppie mothers. Sheesh. Can I tell you the sheer amount of stuff she received?? It was unreal.

In some cases the parents were killed trying to stop the car from rolling away, and in some cases the child was killed by falling out an opened door and then being run over. I agree, small risk. But reading those cases certainly made me think twice. I have posted this twice, but...
