What gets you excited about life?
Change. I like change, well most of it. I like that as the kids grow older and we grow older there will be change, some good and some bad, but as things evolve I’m excited to see how it does. I like fresh things to do and fresh ideas.
I think the thing that gets me most excited about life and change is seeing how Ethan and Emma will turn out. Ethan is a bit of an enigma in the sense that he will either take the path of least resistance, or follow his dreams. I know that holds true for any child, but with Ethan dealing with Asperger’s, plus having a bit of my fortitude, he has the capacity to go far. I have to help him reign his feelings in a bit. I’m not quite sure how to do that. If/When Ethan reaches his goal of being a Avian Veterinarian (and yes I know this will probably change) he cant be yelling at clients to get out of his office if they piss him off. With Emma it is a bit too early to tell what she will be into, but she’s a smart cookie.
Although, there is a part of me, a small part, that wishes they would stay little.
