snappy, perceptive, and personal as anything she has written. They muse on what it is about babies that causes our hearts to crinkle and fold: "The meaning of life is in them." Share what Quindlen has learned as a mother: "From time to time I would lie on the floor with my babies to see exactly what they were seeing when it looked as though they were just wasting time," and juxtapose babyhood with adulthood: "The next time you are sitting in a meeting after three cups of.
coffee, badly needing to go to the bathroom but instead doodling dutifully, crossing your legs and watching the clock, remember that if you were a baby you would have gone by now, and no one the wiser." Kelsh's photographs and Quindlen's text complement each other perfectly. Two masters of their craft have created an unusual meditation and a wondrous book - a totally original gift for every parent or parent-to-be.
