be in the moment

The other day Lulu & I were walking hand in hand down the street, and bunch of teenage girls walked past us.
Of course they were all wearing the ubiquitous SHORT shorts, tank tops with bra straps showing, long straightened hair, flip flops or moccasins, talking extra loud about who knows what and all in their own little teenage bubble.

I wistfully said to Lulu "one day you won't want to hold my hand in public and maybe you won't even want to hang out with me all the time...sniff sniff..."
She then said to me
"awe mommy, don't worry about tomorrow, just think about today and enjoy every minute of me while I'm six"
"besides, I would never wear shorts that short!"
not only is she profound, she's a mind reader as well.

doggie style

While at the park a few weeks ago, Lulu spotted two dogs..ahem...doing the ol' mommy & daddy dog dance, if ya know what I mean.
They were really going at it and kind of drawing quite a bit of attention.
Big daddy & I started to try and distract her by pointing at things in the opposite direction.
"look sweetie, that cloud looks just like a unicorn!"
"is that a cardinal I see in that tree over there?"
Because I am soooo not ready for that conversation.
But she was too quick for us.
She spotted the doggie porn despite our best efforts.
Then she says "look mommy, that big doggy is giving that little doggie a piggy back ride!"
"Yes sweetie, that's exactly what they are doing!"

a mouse in the house

Ahh another year of ballet has come to a close.
Lulu was fantastic in her recital and really seemed to be having so much fun up on stage.
I was so proud of her- as always.

But I have to say, I am happy that most of her fall/winter programs are all almost finished (except baseball & piano).
The weeks just seem to fly by chauffeuring her from one thing to another, and I am really ready for a reprieve from it all.
Bring on Summer Camp..
I haven't had two seconds to sit down and sort out my thoughts the past few months, never mind trying to come up with a clever post.
I honestly don't know how full time working mothers with more than one child cope.
Then again, I probably bring it all on myself being the perfectionist-o.c.d crazeoid that I am.
Note to self- R.E.L.A.X....
and like I said now that all the activities for Lulu are winding down, I might just get the chance.
