Sometimes I cringe to think of things I did as a young parent. These were things that were it not for the grace of God could have turned out really bad.
When my first child was about two months old, my husband was transferred from Meridian Mississippi to Barber's Point Hawaii. After our household goods were packed and shipped, our little family began the week long drive to San Francisco California. Weary from the long days of riding and looking for a bit of entertainment, we checked into local motels and arranged for babysitting service from lists that the motels provided.
My only excuse is that I didn't know any better. But I still can't believe I did that.
