A friend and I were talking about baby essentials the other day. She had read an extensive list and was skeptical that one needed all of it. It made me think of my own list, and while the list changes for everyone, and even sometimes between babies, this one worked for us; a Maus’s view […]
I’ve been dreaming about this summer’s week at the cottage, and all of the wonderful time spent in the water (I’m sure the lack of central air-conditioning and the few days where the ground floor thermostat registered 30°C played no small part in my dreams of swimming…).
