Our good friend Matt is moving to London today. This is great for him, and it's exciting for us to have a friend to visit in London, but we are so sorry to see him go.
One thing about having a son is that you start to value, even more than usual, the presence of good men in your life. And Matt is just great. He's principled, and purposeful, and kind. And he is such a friend to Elliot. I'm sad for myself that Matt's going, but mostly I'm sad the Elliot won't get to hang out with Matt as much. Who else will teach him to be so cool in such a relaxed way? Who else will hold him during the superbowl? Who else will bring him little finger puppets made out of recyled fabric fibers? Who?
Anyway, Matt: we send you all our best! Much love from us all.
