For a little bit of wind, I am grateful

Monday, 20 May, 2013

Monday, 20 May, 2013

Elizabeth Babich , windsurfing wahine Mothers learn early on that the art of bag packing is a prerequisite parenting skill.  In fact, months before delivery, it’s one of the first recommendations they make in the birthing class: “Pack the overnight bag for the hospital.”  The bag you take to the hospital is important; an initiation […]
