Nothing funny about a fear of heights ... except to your kids

We took the 9-year-old to New York City last week, because ... well, look, he loves trains. For like 9 years his primary goals have involved 1. Being near the subway; 2. Being on the subway; 3. Taking the subway to other stations that have subways; 4. Taking a subway into Grand Central. Some kids dream of space travel or professional baseball; ours has goals in the rewarding field of Riding Public Transportation. It's cool; space camp is expensive, and MetroCards are like $2.50 a pop. I wish that all my dreams were that affordable.
