athousandsmallheartattacks.com — These are (the first in a series of) notes from a parenting webinar I recently "attended" based on the book "The Blessing of a Skinned Knee: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Self-Reliant Children" by Dr. Wendy Mogel, clinical psychologist.We raise our children hoping they will grow to be self-reliant adults who will one day, gulp, leave us.

A Thousand Small Heart Attacks

athousandsmallheartattacks.com — Found a baby birdling on my driveway. I'm guessing it strayed/fell from the nest in my neighbor's roof, the one I can see from my kitchen window. Though I can't imagine it flew on its own. No feathers, translucent skin. Like it'd hatched too soon from its egg.

Thumb print flowers, pencil-eraser-dot negative-space hearts, and painted abstract trees. The girls had so much fun getting messy, and I'm enjoying seeing the differences in their artistic sensibilities as they each tackled the "same" design.
