I believe I have told the story here (though I can’t find the link now) of the time we were guests at a Staples Center luxury suite for a Clippers game, and my middle child, then about 4 years old, spontaneously decided to try to lap from his second-row seat to the front row. Just out of my frantic reach, he managed to stick the landing, but he could have just as easily toppled forward and out of the suite to the ground below. It was one of the most frightening experiences of my life.

My heart goes out to the family of this child.

Update: Here’s the link to my family’s incident at Staples two years ago this month.
