In the middle of October of 2001, mom replied to an email about a news article I’d sent her in late August of that year. The news article — about the benefits of breastfeeding — has disappeared from its original location, but can still be found on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. (And that makes me smile because I remember how much mom loved Mr. Peabody’s Wayback Machine.)
