OK, I hardly ever do a "mommy" post, but I thought if this is my journal too, I ought to record some stuff the kids say when they were small, or I'll forget them. Right now, Kai always says "really". "Mom, it's really raining". "Mom, Tia's really home" "I really got a long sleeve shirt on", "I really ate my breakfast". He's also accustomed to saying "paper toilet" instead of toilet paper. Tia, when she was little always had her own words for things. "You're all fixed up" instead of "mixed up", and "I want to go to the zoo" was "I wanna go doops" (that one took us a while to figure out!). I won't even start with Ari. For 3 years it was just screaming and yelling to get our attention, and a real guessing game after that. Actually that's not the happiest memory. I'm so grateful to the people who taught us sign language. She'd be seriously scarred if we hadn't gotten that training. OK, maybe I'll do a cool post later. Just wanted to record that stuff.
I am a fitness instructor, AFAA certified personal trainer, and a mom of three. Most of the time I'm vegan, with some crazy "free" meals a couple times a week. I have a love/hate relationship with my yard depending on how much work it needs! I grew up in San Diego, and love the ocean. I scuba, but sometimes have panic attacks snorkeling. Given the choice between the superpowers of invisibility and flight, I'd pick flight in a heartbeat. I love my husband, and his patience with my crazy habit of getting into something that's well over my head.
