A new mother’s wishful thinking…

Tuesday, Sept. 7, 1943

“Tomorrow Abe goes back to work leaving his little family to look after itself,” Lois wrote today. Now you would think she’d be a bit apprehensive about handling the house and baby without him. But no: “I don’t it’s going to be too much trouble to care of things myself. A normal baby really doesn’t require too much attention…the feeding, diaper changing, and bath will still leave me with plenty of time to run the house and I’m counting on free hours during the day for other things.” Either my mother was very naïve or I was the best baby in the world. “Normal” wouldn’t cut it! If she’s right, though, she’ll have plenty of time to try out the week’s ration-point menus.
