Taking the Plunge at Bedford Springs
As I make my way through the parenting books, one thing is clear: to reduce conflict with your child you can give him the choice between two well-selected options. The child can choose easily, feels he controlled his fate, and tranquility is restored. When we stepped outside our room at the Bedford Springs resort this morning we could choose between a sun-bathed outdoor pool with a cluster of posh cabanas or...
an indoor oasis offering all of the splash without the SPF. We chose... both. First I worked in a cabana by the outdoor pool while Jac hit the driving range. It was heavenly to report to work overlooking the pool and mountains, definitely the best telecommuting I've done so far. Later, Jac joined me for a swim in the vintage indoor pool, one of the first in the US. We had the indoor pool to ourselves, an unexpected luxury.
