I mute the television and look at my children. I beam. They are safe, for the day. They are both capable of making good choices for themselves and the earth. They are smart, questioning, skeptical and critical, true to their developmental task.
We had been egged! Not full fledge egged... just one egg likely tossed by a neighborhood teenager on a night of mischief. A weight started to fall all around me. Great. Not this week! How will I explain this one to the kids?
