Going the Extra Distance as a Parent

My attitude toward parenting is usually: "What's the least amount of work I can do here without endangering my child?"

Kelly, meanwhile, is the other extreme. She's always thinking of ways to make the kids happier and healthier.

The new bunk bed is a case in point. She didn't want Alice to look up at plain wooden slats from her bottom bunk. So Kelly painted the slats to look like a rainbow (one of Alice's favorite objects).


These kids don't know how good they have it.
