Wanted: Bobsled Teammates

While mom was busy working over the past week, Dad helped me train for the next Winter Olympics Games! Please review the below video and let me know if you’d like to join my bobsled team. No experience necessary. Heck, you don’t even have to be potty-trained. Just bring your skills and any animal crackers you can find in your house. Try-outs will take place at the top of my driveway, not to conflict with my nap schedule, and preferably when my mom isn’t present to disrupt our fun due to safety concerns.

A year of more firsts

My new year’s resolution was to experience more firsts in 2016, and so far I’m off to a good start!

To begin, I decided to get pink eye!

My first experience with pink eye earned me my first trip to Urgent Care, where I scored my first prescription of eye drops! I’ve since been cured, but it was fun while it lasted. Plus, I’ve become an expert eye drop recipient.

Next, I wanted to mix things up a bit by enrolling in a new school closer to mom’s office!

Changing schools meant I got to have a first day in my new room, I got to bring my first packed lunch (since lunch isn’t provided here), and I got to turn on my personality for my first impression with the new teacher. I think she likes me and I really like her back, but I do miss my former teachers and those little biters at my old school. Luckily, I’ve already met some vampires in this room too.

Finally, mom and I decided to take our first trip to dad’s new office at his new job. We had to go all the way up to the 7th floor, but it was so worth that press of the elevator button. The view was incredible!

Watch out! Future engineer in training.

Now, excuse me while I take my first conference call with this calculator.

Happy New Year 2016!

As you’ll see from my photos below, so far, 2016 has been quite a RIDE! Here’s what I’m learning along the way:

1. Hang on tight; life goes by fast!

2. When you get stuck, just give yourself a little push… you’ll get there.

3. If you get off track, try to fix it or ask for help.

4. There can be ups and downs, and scary bumps along the way. It’s okay to cry during these moments.

5. Be sure to slow down every once in a while to make memories.

6. Most of all, enjoy the ride!
