Hi Stephane,

Congratulations!!  Sounds very nice! ... and yes, you are absolutely 
correct ... little ones pick up on tension in the household.

(Oh, I would love to take you up on that offer ... I haven't been over 
in ages ... [some day I'll scan in some nice old photos I took in 
Giverny and Alencon] ... we'll just have to see!)     ;-)

Sorry to hear that you had to put your 'mom of the world' thing on 
hiatus for a bit ... unreasonable people aren't fun - whatever 
socio-economic circle they inhabit.  Perhaps you'll get more 
satisfying opportunities again in the future.

Enjoy the new place (and the new little one!),

(Who was completely unsuccessful in weaving in this most marvelous 
phrase he overheard a Texan use yesterday:

<spoken in a slightly menacing - yet vaguely cubist manner />

"I'll show *him* how the cow chews it's cabbage!"

I laughed for 20 minutes ... Man, I'm just gonna *have* to find 
a way to use that somehow!)
