Renegade Mothering is in Bellagio, Italy.
2 weeks ago
It’s our last night in Italy so we went out to a fancy dinner and spent three hours eating three courses. Risotto, gnocchi, prawns, pork shank, lasagna, creme brûlée and cappuccinos and two Italian brothers who owned the place and took a liking to us, stopped by our table every few minutes to chat about San Francisco, the shock of the 2016 election, Napa Valley wine, and how much they miss Americans. Yes. I’ve heard that more than once. Turns out we are not universally hated. Or maybe it’s that we tip well. Both can be true.
On the way to the car, Arlo said, “Since it’s our last night, Mama, I think we should get an extra sweet treat and it should be cotton candy.”
I said no. Mac said “He’s never had it before. It’s our last night in Italy. He’s getting the cotton candy.”
Well, Italy, you’ve been damn good to us. @ Bellagio, Italy ... See MoreSee Less
I write Renegade Mothering and wrote a book called I'M JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE. And then we moved to Holland.
The number of Americans who say they can’t afford enough food for themselves or their children is growing and is likely to get larger now that some government benefits have expired https://on.wsj.com/34kwmyv
