Our Toddle Spots this month:
The usuals: Library Neighborhood Park Train Station
Last night, we were making some homemade pizza, music playing, dancing, getting ready to watch a movie, when there was a knock at the door. We had know idea who it could be and opened it to find out some bad news. Right in the middle of having a happy time, sadness literally knocked unexpectedly on our door. We still enjoyed the evening with our kids but certainly the new information hung over our heads a little.
This morning I still felt down. I just happened to turn on this TED talk while getting ready for today and found it uplifting.
Thanks for reading.
