3 steps to a simpler summer

3 Steps to a Simpler SummerWritten by Melissa Camara Wilkins

A couple of my friends have been talking about how few summers we have with our kids, and how to make the most of them.

I say helpful things, like, “oh,” and, “hmm,” and “Eighteen! It’s not a very big number, is it?” This is code for “this conversation is making me so anxious that I may break out in hives at any time.”
