By the way, Moose must be old enough that life feels more manageable to me. I say that because there comes a time when I start thinking of things that we can do BEYOND basic survival. It was after 9 months with Monkey, too, so I guess that's the magic number. When your baby is 9 months then life can start to resume. That's just a theory.

Ok, other projects: teaching my girls some earth science in preparation for visiting BioSphere 2 (in Tucson) later this year. If there is any upside to the earthquake in Japan, it is that it started discussions about our Earth.
Teaching them Italian. Something that I've always planned to do, but have yet to make it much of a reality. But Chick's window of prime opportunity is narrowing, so I need to get on it. What I'm thinking of doing is one day a week of immersion. That day will be entirely in Italian. Including any books read, movies watched, etc. I probably won't blog those days, because I think the people that read Italian AND that read my blog are scarse indeed (but not non-existent, so who knows?) Anyhow, if you have successfully taught your child a language that is a second language for all in the household, please share your tips with me.
Ok, so do I have other news? I've bought several things on Amazon.com. I daresay that's my favorite place to shop lately. Yesterday the DVD version of A&E's Pride and Prejudice arrived (I've only had the VHS all this time). Also yesterday came a little emergency radio to keep in our 72 hr kits--it cranks up really easily, and has a flashlight, and a solar-power option, and can also charge a cell phone. Here's hoping that I don't ever need it.
Love you all. Ciao ciao.
