After all these years of posting about decorating and crafting and baking and emigrating, who knew that a parenting dilemma was the key to my readers' hearts. Thank you so much for all of the comments and emails, especially from lurkers, and please bear with me as it will take me a while to reply to them all.

It hangs with clean-release strips on the wall between the hallway and the kitchen.
