This website was invented many years ago, when the author kept coming across interesting things in pockets whilst doing laundry. Like small, terrified reptiles. Blogging about raising children in the rainforest, moving them to the UK and watching them leave home one by one to have their own adventures has gradually been replaced by a return to grownup life for their mother, Nan Sheppard, who is an anthropologist, writer and public international law consultant.
We hung out with cousins of all ages during the holidays: From very competitive Scrabble-Winning older cousins all the way down to the Kate of Awesomeness. I kept looking at my boys, holding their little cousin, entertaining her, adoring her, and it made me nostalgic for the days when they were little enough to have a bath in the kitchen sink.
Come and visit again soon, Kate, my kitchen sink needs you in it!
