[Toddlers Were Running The Place Like Some Miniature Version Of Lord Of The Flies, Complete With Weapons Made From Blocks And Tinker Toys. One Of Them Came At Me, Charging My Knees And The Pink Pod That Held My Precious Baby. I Screamed And Made A Run For The Front Door, Flip-flops Sticking To Squelchy Dried Puddles Of Juice. I Let Out A Relieved Sigh When We Were Outside Breathing Fresh Air. The Near-deafening Roar Of The Highway Was A Lark Song Compared To The Screeching We'd Just Escaped.]
