Ah! I mean hello

I hope you'll allow me to wander off subject, and by you, I mean Shayla. 

How you do answer the 101 questions that pop into your mind everyday?

Is this the best cereal for my son to eat?
Am I bathing him enough?
How do I keep his ears clean?
Have I done any good in the world today?
Are we teaching our son all he needs to be successful?

And I guess it all boils down to:
Are we good parents?

Because, well, that's why I'm here.  Sure I'm here for myself, but I also have this person that I am in charge of, and that I love more than anything.

And that's my random thoughts for the evening.

It's coming...

Okay, I have done some more things on my "bucket list"!  (Which is good, because September is coming quick!)

#17- One of the things on my list was to take a piece of choreography to the Regional Dance America/Pacific Ballet Festival.  So far, my choreography has only ever been performed locally and I wanted to get out there!  So, away we went to Las Vegas where my students performed my piece "Foxhole".  It was received very well and was performed for 21 other ballet companies in the Pacific Region.  The students did an amazing job and I was very happy with the results.  One down...

#18-Dejunk the house in preparation for and to make room for another little one!  I have been working on this for about a month now.  It is not done, but it is much much better than what it was.  All the clothes I have for him so far are washed and put away (after having made room in Jocelyn's dresser for them).  I still need to get some bigger items for him, and make room for them, but we are making progress.  And, of course, dejunking is a constant battle.  It's never done.  But it is close enough that I am going to count it.  I still have the dining room table to clear off and get stuff put away.  Then the baby can come when he wants (but hopefully not for a little while still).

One of my bucket list items is to have another baby before I am 30...definitely can't check that one off yet, but I am working on it!  I also am reading the Book of Mormon through as a "Parenting Manual".  It is taking me longer to get through because there are so many new insights I've had since beginning it with this mindset.  So maybe I'll get done before September and maybe I won't.  But I'll definitely be better for doing it no matter when I finish.
