ok so here goes everybody
i have done nothing but be a mom for so long i don't even know myself these days
but lately the pace is slowing down, either that or i've really lost more then my sense of normalcy
in any case, my kiddoes are growing, Paola has taken to independence like a toddler's finger to a nostril and Adolfo continues to develop into a growing, glowing example of genius (translate, quirky, but charmingly so and using lots of electronic intestines)
i am proud of my children
so life goes on at the Chavez household.
Just two short weeks after Adolfo's piano recital
Paola starred at her ballet recital
She performed two dances with her group and two dances with her parents. She was selected as the leader of her group and performed flawlessly and fearlessly. The two dances were, Singing Poodle and Kewpie Doll
I'm glad to report that she prefers NOT to wear makeup.
Adolfo has joined the YMCA swim team and is now busy flirting with the female lifeguards and inventing new swim strokes much to his coach's dismay. But he dutifully performs as expected during meets and is thankfully not abashed at coming in last.
Paola is also taking swimming lessons and insists that she could swim on her own. Of course, I'm terrified and hover around her like a crazed octopus ready to grab at any sign of distress. She laughs it off as she does most things. Yes, this little girl is going to teach me a thing or two.
As the kids are growing, Killy and I are readying for change. I guess this means we are finally comfortable with the way things are, and as you all know, Killy and I thrive on stress, so we just need to make things a little more complicated.
Killy is going back to school to study Biomedical Engineering. I don't know how that's going to work itself into our lives, but I do know that it will and we will be happier for it because King Killy will be happier. :-)
I like my job in that the hours allow me time with my children. But I know that soon, Paola being old enough for public school means I have an opportunity to think about my career as something that can be emotionally rewarding for me. Hmmm, the possibilities are endless...
so what's new with you?
