1. In a place with cold air con, to stand near the door and feel the real spring air.
2. To walk with a more experienced mother and talk shop.
3. There are days when we wait for rain. Today we are waiting for poo. Alec is starting to try solid food, and he hasn't done one for several days. It comes just as Nick walks through the door, and it is catastrophic -- all parts of the nappy, clothes, the bouncy chair and me. I don't need any help clearing up -- but I'm glad Nick is there to see how hard I work!
