so what’s new with you

The go-to question. We have all used it when we can’t think of anything else to say to someone. And nine times out of ten the response given is, “Oh not much. Just been working. What is new with you?”

Really…what a boring life.I can say this as that is my normal response. But let’s dive in shall we. What have I really been doing?!

-I have been watching my five month old master being a roly-poly. Makes me smile every time she does it because she grunts trying to get over her chubby baby tummy.

-My three year old has started dance class and getting to see her share an experience that I can relate to is very exciting! Having her come home, talking non-stop (and not everything I can understand), trying to get out (quickly) everything she learned. Then trying to show me each step and how to say it. SHUFFLE-STEP she says as she smacks her tap shoe on to my kitchen floor.

-I’ve taken on more responsibilities at work and that has allowed me to become better at my job. Working towards the next step is an everyday challenge but it is one that I am enjoying. Yes, I am one of the lucky people who enjoy what I do and the people I work with. Envy Me!

-My husband and I have been connecting and learning more and more about each other recently. Not bad, but after six and half years it’s nice to know we still have lots to learn. It sure keeps things interesting and keeps us on our toes. But one thing that isn’t new and I hope never changes is how my husband and I love to be with each other and our children. (of course on occasion we wish everyone would vanish into the floor for a few hours…but that is rare)

We all have new adventures and experiences that we come across…so…What’s new with you?

come here unicorn

Watching the news has always made me feel sad, confused and unsettled. It just seems as if there is nothing positive going on. It make me sad and fearful for my children. I feel that “back in the day” kids didn’t have to worry about drive-bys, people exposing themselves to them (which by the way…what the hell!) and you could let your child get ice cream from the ice cream man with no fears. Kids now have to worry about Stranger Danger even more than when I was a kid. You now have to worry about them going to the movies….they may get shot! Better get a bullet proof vest with that popcorn.

I have to say that I live in a world filled of rainbows and unicorns. I know what is going on out there but yes, I do prefer to go about my day thinking about the good things in the world but it is really getting hard. Like for example, I recently heard a story about a mom who didn’t want to or sadly felt like she couldn’t take care of her children anymore so she drove her car, with her children in it, into a lake! How is that going to solve your problems! I mean don’t get me wrong lady, I get frustrated with my brats just like the next mom and I may even sometimes imagine punting my oldest off my balcony (of course she is always fine when she lands!!! AND of course I would never! Don’t call child services on me!) but seriously! Killing my children would never be an act I would even ponder. So now you get to sit in a jail cell for life thinking about what you did…I’d rather listen to my kid complain that she doesn’t want to go to bed without her tap shoes.

Rainbows and Unicorns…what a peaceful place. Everyone, come join me here.
