As soon as we got to the car I looked in the review mirror to see my son, slap himself in the mouth with the kind of force that would have impressed JWOOW (excuse the jooisy shoah reference). I was stunned, but. worse. He kept doing it, crying... I CAN'T FEEL ANYTHING MAMMA. I caught him pinching his cheek. It was so creepy. I was worried about his and my mental health for the day. He knocked out, and woke up a picture of normality. (intervention avoided).
I am acutely aware that I have a give-a-way to announce,
but I haven't picked one yet.
It's super cute.
Straight from the red light district of Paris.
COMPLETELY PG guys.
I think you'll like it.
On the home front...I miss my husband. Funny enough, we talk more with him thousands of miles away than we did when he was two feet away. Thank goodness for Skype. I'm not getting a whole lot of sleep, but I'm not going to complain. The kids ask for him a lot and I hear him choke up when they ask "Daddy whhhhhenn are YOU coming home." The answer: we don't have an answer yet.
I've had an interesting week. I decided to cancel my WPPI trip to Vegas, to be with my kids. I think with so much going on for us, it's much more important for me to be with them. (for my sake). I'm so glad I did it. Truthfully I had a small stabbing moment of worry that I'd regret my choice, but I haven't at all.
I've had some insightful conversation. Some positive. Some negative. But, seriously...isn't all insight positive? I am learning more and more that we interpret the "world" though the looking glass called "ourselves". We give meaning to our experience based on how we relate to the world as an individual. You are the source or your happiness and unhappiness. If you love the world around you, you'll find your world filled with loving experiences. If you are constantly critical, judgmental and mistrusting, you will also find your life filled with these experiences. Who someone thinks you are is neither an indication or a truth. What YOU think about others is. So my motto for this year is "WORRY ABOUT YOUR D@RN SELF." and you can quote me on that.
