I know there are big things going on the world. Things that make no sense. Things that are making us all feel a little uncertain about the sanity of our neighbors and countrymen. Things that make us wonder what century we are living in. Things that make us feel small, and things that make us feel big. And maybe, just maybe, it feels like the world has stopped spinning. Or is slowing down while we all stand, mouths agape and off balance.
It’s a mad mad mad mad world. Right?But here, in our little world, it’s just little things. Little things that let us know that the world is, indeed, still spinning. At it’s normal pace, at least. Maybe a little faster.
In our little world we are learning (and stressing about) how to write 5-paragraph essays and to cite evidence from the text.We are losing teeth and feeling pretty pumped about it.
We’re excited about our first gymnastics classes and about sleeping in cardboard boxes.
That kind of thing.
Our newest little person arrived on March 10th at 5:28am. We’re pretty sure he’s the handsomest baby boy we’ve seen in years.
(All biases duly acknowledged.)
And while the world in general seems to be off its rocker, we’re happy to rock our baby to sleep and call it a day.
