Each morning as I sit on my deck drinking my coffee, I am privileged to watch the behavior of many bird species, and observe their approach to parenthood (among other things).
I see many parallels between this behavior in the wild and the approach to parenting I sometimes see in mothers and fathers of children admitted to the hospital.
OK, so you are thinking I am a little bit nuts, and perhaps that is true. But when you are always looking for topics about which to blog, this kind of thing happens not infrequently. So humor me, and see what you think about this metaphor when I am done.
