It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
-- Sir Edmund Hillary
When you are a parent, you are a prisoner of war. You can't go anywhere without paying someone to come and look after your kids. In the old days, baby sitters were fifty cents an hour; They'd steam clean the carpet and detail your car. No they've got their own union. I couldn't afford it, so I had my mother come over. The sitters called her a scab and beat her up on the front lawn.
