Scientist mom: Perspective

This morning the Bear and I got up to get some milk (for her) and make some tea (for me), and she decided she didn't want the milk, but just to sit with me and read books. So we did. Then we got dressed, and I checked my email, while Husband made us some bagels.

After over 10 weeks in review at Nature, my first post-thesis manuscript was rejected. Sigh. I skimmed the reviewer comments and sent them to my collaborators. I was starting to think of how to respond...

...and then the Bear offered me a piece of her bagel and started dancing in her chair.
