An army


My godson and his parents picked us up at La Paz airport.
We live in an apartment hotel and it’s kind of cozy. We are now one big alternative family. I’m not sure if “alternative” is the operative word or “family”.
Nevertheless I decided to look for two excellent au pairs before I ever start thinking about children myself.
Discipline makes the troops more survivable, I read in a book about the Iraq war. The same can be said about authors.
And for discipline you need an army of au pairs.
