Brookline Patch Column: The Insistence of Memory

This week's The Brookline Parent column for Brookline Patch is a little different. Called "The Insistence of Memory," it's about how I feel when I know I can't record every single event that happens in the lives of Muffin and Squeaker, no matter how much I want to.

Read the column that Nomi referred to as "a psychological exploration of you and not so much about the children." :-) If nothing else, you'll want to see the photo of the ice cream cake that wishes happy birthday to "Muffin and Squeak."
