to register Phoebe for pre-kindergarten in September, which involves collecting together various important documents that prove where we live and that we are indeed the parents of said Phoebe.

Here I allow myself a brief nostalgic reverie, remembering the first time Emily wrote my name, which is somewhat spoiled when she continues,


"Mummy and Fish." Absolutely great. Seven years of non-stop care and attention, and I still rank somewhere below cold-blooded vertebrates in the overall scheme of things. Good to know...
