Thank you for listening lil. Lot's of questions these days.

I'm about to take my last flight for a couple weeks. I am in a "she could give birth any time now" holding pattern. It's criminal how little I have prepared for what is coming in my family life. Maybe this kid will be the "second wind." We will name her Mila Mae. The anxiety of her being anything less than healthy is starting to kick in.

I watched the training scenes from Karate Kid with my kids yesterday and it again occurred to me that Mr. Miyagi really was my moral compass as a child. I hope I can be a big enough presence in my children's lives that they don't need to rely on film characters for guidance. I also played my kids scenes from other movies that helped shape me as a kid. We watched Bill Murray's pep talk to Rudy before the big race in Meatballs. I pointed out Spaz and told them that I know his sister :)

Last flight home? Last flight away?

If you're away, how could you have watched scenes with your kids last night.

Mila Mae - sweet.

I hope everything will go smoothly.

so much to say and do...
