1. Putting a healthy, balanced meal on the table.

2. Nursing away my toddler’s inevitable bonks.

3. Watching Beatrice behave kindly at a manic birthday party.

4. Reading new research that supports my intuitive choices about childcare, discipline, feeding or sleep.

5. Snuggling together in a blanket and reading stories on the couch.
