    Dr. Doolittle

    “Talk to the animals.”

    Rex Harrison, Dr. Doolittle

    Do you remember Dr. Doolittle’s ‘Push-me Pull-you?’ I think it’s going to be my daughter’s new nick-name. You’d think that when Fig is feeling sick, all she’d want is a good snuggle with Mama. Nope. She wants contact, but not too much contact. […]

    Under the weather

    “I enjoy convalescence. It is the part that makes the illness worthwhile.”

    George Bernard Shaw
