And the book says....?!

Family quarrels have a total bitterness unmatched by others. Yet it sometimes happens that they also have a kind of tang, a pleasantness beneath the unpleasantness, based on the tacit understanding that this is not for keeps; that any limb you climb out on will still be there later for you to climb back.

Thanks for viewing my photos. Rest assured that I read all your comments and very well appreciated.

One of the great injustices in the world is that babies do not come with instruction manuals! Definitely a cause for frustration and tension when things aren't going well! Well seen and captured Dokmateo! ;-)
