“Where’s Olive? Have you seen her? Olive!”

I must ask this question a dozen times daily, and here’s the snapshots to show why. Why silence is not necessarily a good thing in our home. Why Olive at almost three still requires 15 hours of sleep each day and a stuffed monkey leashed to her back and my arm when in large public spaces. Why putting your precious or dangerous things “out of children’s reach” is never quite enough.
