What are you up to this weekend? I’m pinching myself because we’re going to the Fleabag play. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is such a genius, ahhhhh. (Also, here’s the new trailer for the second season.) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
Touristy things I still do after five years of living in NYC, haha.

Frequently asked questions about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal baby. (NYT)
Plus, two reader comments:
Says Meghan on the funniest book of mom advice: “When my cousin moved in with her boyfriend, my aunt said, ‘He won’t buy the cow if he’s getting the milk for free,’ After my cousin’s boyfriend proposed, he went to her parents and said, ‘I’d like to talk to you about buying a cow.'”
Says Lindsey on kissing children: “A month ago, my eight-year-old daughter had a total meltdown. She was exhausted and emotional and all she wanted to was to take a bath with me. (I take one every night). I thought she was too old, but she was so fragile that I let her climb in and she rested on my chest, and I poured palmfuls of water on her back and she almost fell asleep. I’m so glad I didn’t say no in fear of her being too old — it was precious and it may never happen again.”
