I wanted to take a few minutes to thank the crew up in Ward 14 at Wellington Hospital for doing a sterling job in taking care of Second Chef and Chef Du Plunge. This isn’t just because of the great view from the room she enjoyed on her own:

But because they took so much time to set us on the path of good parenting.

Also because although I’ve spent a fair amount of time complaining about the local District Health Board, I know you’re not all bad, as proven in the days after CDP’s birth.

So from Second Chef and I, thanks.
