Metin Leander writes his own story -1 Year Young

Amazing how times runs fast for Grand Parents – while Mothers who breastfeed, in one way should wish the time went slower, between the feedings. On the other hand: Every second hour 24/7 for a year, well…… I need food
And my Father is working  several miles from me. But that will change this Week.
Strong Birth Day wishes.
Grand Parents and Friends have options to see me whenever

Happily Claudie and Pierre had a day off from work – even mid week -  when  they so gently hosted us first week of October 2010.
So what to do?
