It is interesting how perspective changes.

At the beginning of August I started a 'diet' and exercise regimen. I use the quote around diet - because really I am changing my eating habits entirely. So this isn't really something that is temporary.

The interesting thing is - I am more focused about this right now b/c of Rowan. I mean it is one thing if I do this for myself only - but it is another thing entirely when I realize that I really want to set a good example for my daughter. I want her to see me making the right choices when it comes to food and working out on a regular basis. I would love for her to follow this example - but how can I expect her to do that if I am not doing the right thing myself.

Anytime I need inspiration, I remember that my daughter is watching me - even at her youg age - and it helps me to make the right decision.

She loved the fish at the zoo. They were the only things moving that she could get up close and personal with.

Hmmm .... daddy say's it is a gorilla

LOL - she was looking at the gorilla presentation - looks like she is thinking really hard about it doesn't it? She was actually just sucking on her finger :-D

What do you mean I am supposed to READ it??

We try to tell her osmosis doesn't work - I don't think it is getting through.

Something tells me I am getting a bath soon

She loves biter biscuits - but we hate giving them to her for this very reason. So she only gets them right before bath time.
