extended rear facing-- Although Alexis turned out perfect there are lots of things I plan to do different raising Avaya. Extended rear facing is one of those things. Too many facts not to ignore the safety benefits of being rear faced. Although I turned Alexis forward at 2 years it bothers me now seeing children at that age, some younger, already forward facing.
Le Palais Stoclet - I just love this story of vanity, stubbornness and integrity: Baron Stoclet had the house built backwards, with the rear facing the Avenue de Tervueren, in protest at the Brussels authorities refusal to name the avenue after him.
