The World Keeps Spinning

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?fastfriendsBut 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.toothlessoliverWe are losing teeth and feeling pretty pumped about it.

We’re excited about our first gymnastics classes and about sleeping in cardboard boxes.

And we’re learning to breathe, learning to blink, learning to not freak out when not in direct contact with another human being.

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.

  1. Yes!!!! I’ve just been thinking about this mad world we live in and how awful I feel that I’m constantly questioning everybody’s motives everywhere I turn. I don’t like thinking like that, but I’m also not sure how to go about my day differently.

    And then I read this. How refreshing to be reminded that this world of mine (the two of us and our three little girls) consists of trust and big milestones and lots of little victories. In addition to little battles that don’t look anything like the crazy things I hear about in the news. And it’s fantastic.

    Loved this. And especially love that new little handsome man you’ve brought into the world.
