“HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?” I asked my mom. She said, “When I came here (read: immigrated to the US from India) that was my favorite song. Roberta Flack sang it”. I’m not sure when I started singing it to Baby G, but it has stuck and it has become our nightly ritual.
When I was expecting, we were SO fortunate to receive pretty much everything we needed from friends and family. Having said that, if I knew then what I know now, my registry would have looked different.
