While shopping with my sister this weekend, I bought a disposable camera for the boy, because he’d wanted to bring a camera to Iowa and we (mom) forgot. My sister said, “It’s nice that you didn’t also have to buy something for the girl.” Stuff like that never occurs to me—they both sometimes get stuff, and sometimes don’t. Pity the parents who have to keep things exactly balanced at all times.

The more you read, the more you realize you haven’t read, and then you have to write about it too.
