    we delivered both our kids at Beverly. Not sure if you have your doctor picked out but I highly recommend ours. email me if you want to discuss, it’s hardly blog fodder to talk about (think of all the men reading who will go EWWWWWW).

    Beverly is great, local, easy to get to. When I had both my kids I had the same nurse and I used to baby sit for her when I was a Gordon Student. Small world. Great place.

    Keep us posted!

    Ken, not only do I own a Porsche, but I also own the cities of San Francisco and Boston, as well as the Golden Gate Bridge, among other real estate properties.

    (For anyone who doesn’t get Ken’s cryptic joke, a Porsche hood is one of the random header graphics that appears at the top of our website. I had taken a photo of a Porsche while visiting Martha’s Vineyard – which, by the way, I also own…)
