Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
Every year we have a little back to school dinner and family home evening. We chose the theme of "I will go I will do..." My kids are always talking about things they "can't" do so we focused on the idea that we can do hard things. We read about Nephi in the Book of Mormon and how the Lord helped him to accomplish great things. Then we set some goals for the year. Red Fish said that she wants to do really well at reading, math and art this year. New Fish said she wants to eat more apples. We had homemade lasagna and garlic bread with fruit, salad and fancy cupcakes. There was one tantrum during the dinner that threw things off a bit but I guess that is to be expected. Then Two Fish gave the girls each a father's blessing to help them start the year off right. The girls look forward to this special night, especially Red Fish. They were asking me for weeks ahead of time when we were going to have our special dinner with the blessings. I adore these little family traditions.
