Whenever Emilia leaves the house, she carries a backpack...and a purse...sometimes two. She stuffs her bags and pockets and diapers full of loose change, dollar bills, and keys, whatever she can get her hands on. She carries an old cell phone everywhere. She wears one coat and carries another. She goes to bed with two blankets, a book, a doll, and a toy every night.
Like mother, like daughter, I suppose.
