Yesterday the boys and I met up with a friend who lives in our old neighborhood (we moved a year and a half ago). I was surprised and saddened a bit to see that neither of them remembered the park where we spent hundreds of hours, or the coffee shop where we ate far too many cupcakes. When Cal was a newborn and I wasn't sleeping much, I'd eat one almost every afternoon - the sugar gave me a huge, albeit temporary, burst of energy.
I found this piece about the mother and daughter behind the Little House stories very interesting.
RIP Senator Ted Kennedy. I found the speeches by Teddy Jr. and our President at his funeral inspiring, leaving me thinking about how I can do better.
