So does this mean I have to run every single minute of
the contest?  If I don't, I am missing the objective
because I am not working as many stations as possible.
 Or suppose that I hear a station calling CQ, but the
baby starts crying at the same time (it has happened).
 If I go take care of by parently duties, I am now in
violation of the objective.

I think that this is an objective, not a rule, in the
contest, and should be treated as such.  Technically,
I am in violation of it for every contest, because I
haven't put up better antennas higher up, which limits
the number of contacts I can make.
