7 Quick Takes: A Little Perspective

1.  This morning hasn't been the best of mornings.  One child is being cranky and contrary.  The other is getting into everything.  (I mean, seriously, where did that stick come from?  Or that chalk?)  My morning exercising was cut short.  The computer keeps crashing.  Food ended up on the carpet.  There was yelling.  There was crying.  There was whining.  (Although I am proud to say none of it was by me.  At least, not yet.)  We are finally having a couple of moments of calm, one child nursed to sleep and another returned from time out wanting to look at books.  I decided to pop online for a bit.  That's when I saw . . .

2.  This story about women and their (lack of) bathrooms.

3.  Fellow alumni from my alma matter just lost their precious baby.

4.  Another alum just found out his pregnant wife has a brain tumor.

5.  A woman in one of my online mommy groups got a call that her husband was found unresponsive at work.

6.  Last, but certainly not least, all of the war and political unrest happening now.

7.  All of the sudden my morning is looking a lot better.

Update: Life is good.  Even if one child is back in timeout and the other is now cranky from being woken up from a lovely nap.  I think Mommy might get pie for lunch today.
