Mounikapelo

I've learned a new Greek slang term, spoken on the isle of Crete. 'Mounikapelo' refers to an occasion when something extraordinary happens in the midst of an already chaotic situation. It is a heightened moment in a dramatic storm, the craziness of crazinesses.
Having having twins is crazy. Having another baby 19 months later is crazy. Then to have a baby spend her first six months in a hospital, while the other children are so tender and young is even crazier.
Mounikapelo.

  1. Yup. You're a walking definition of that definition. And somehow you've managed to do it all with grace,
