No comparison

To say that we have had a trying day is a gross understatement. If this last tooth doesn't come through soon, I am going to go out of my mind. But, in the grand scheme of things, I still have it awfully good:

Baby found dead in vehicle; Mother apparently forgot to drop off baby at day care
By Lisa Gibson
Herald Staff Writer
A 5-month-old baby died in a minivan Wednesday after the mother apparently forgot to drop the child off at day care.
The tragedy was discovered about 5:30 p.m. outside the Wonder Years 2 day care. The baby's mother stopped at the day care after work to pick up the child and was told by staff that the baby had not been dropped off. She realized then that the baby had been in her minivan all day.
"The mother had forgotten to drop off the child at day care in the morning," said Curt Kreun, owner of Wonder Years 2. "She actually came in the building to pick up the child and then realized what had happened."

This hits so close to home. Full story here.

Once you have your own kids stories like that take on a whole new horror. You long for the days when you could just read something like that and think "that is really sad" as opposed to the sick feeling in your gut that says "what if that were my baby?"
