I don't even think a cape is required.

Is there anyone else who just ain’t feelin’ the blogging vibe right now?

Every time I went to write one of my silly little posts this weekend I kept thinking about the millions of people who just had the worst weekend of their lives, and are still in shock.

No one wants to hear about how I couldn’t find board shorts on Saturday or that I’m tired because on Thursday I got sicker, then on Friday I stayed up way too late reading tweets about the earthquake and tsunami then couldn’t sleep, then on Saturday daylight savings ruined my routine, and on Sunday I stayed up late again while the Husband sorted collector coins. Yeah no one wants or really needs to know that I’m tired or that the Husband has that sort of hobby.

But then again there are many things in this world that we don’t really need. Disasters, whether they directly affect us or not, have a way of reminding us all that there is more to life than Bachelor finales, bubble baths, comfy sheets, and having clear skin (although all can bring a form of happiness).

What we do need is a little hope I tell ya, that life is good and we’ll be alright. Who knew that my Bosco would remind me of that today. I was watching some footage from Japan of a town being completely overtaken by water. Bosco asked what it was and I told him people had lost their homes and it was very sad. He simply said, “Yeah it is. But you know mommy they can rebuild it all and start over even though they’re sad. Just like how I have to build my towers again after Bubba knocks them down. I’ll even fly there and help them. Superhero to the rescue!”
That superhero of mine is right in many ways. Although it’s innocently naïve, extremely hopeful, and easier said then done, it’s true.

I have to admit, when I hit Publish on my celebrity post, there was a small side of me that felt rather silly, given everything going on in the world.

I love this. Children are very good at keeping us grounded and giving us hope and perspective. Thanks for sharing the wisdom of your little super hero.

Is he the same super hero that likes to blame his horsies when things go wrong? :) So funny. Glad you didn't let him get away with it.

Kristina- Well someone's got to do it. Celebrities are people to ya know.

Heather- Yes. This is the same super hero that blames his horsies for less than appropriate behavior :) He's got an imagination that one does.
