Yesterday the boys and I met up with a friend who lives in the neighborhood we moved from a year and a half ago. I was a bit surprised, and saddened, 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. The speeches at his funeral by Teddy Jr. and our President were inspiring, leaving me thinking about how I can do better.
