I had lunch with New Doula today and she's just a sweetheart. Dining with Chim and Badger, who took turns making mischief of one kind and another, is testimony to how great she'll be at mothering the mother since she swooped in and gave me a hand, knowing just what would be most helpful (short of adopting the both of them on the spot, that is. just kidding. mostly!). She's getting clients aplenty and I'm really impressed!
