I'm going to try to be gentle, but I really do think you need to ease up on all this. I can really understand your family being upset by being kept from the baby for a month. Don't get me wrong, I...

I did plan to ask the teacher, but it seemed pointless, as mine were the only kids in their class wearing any helmet at all. Plus, it was a zoo, with the first classes being totally disorganized...
