Random thoughts, words of encouragement, and a confession

1. Stay strong Wisconsin!

2. I confess two guilty pleasures:
The Nanny  (as in, the Nanny named Fran)
Jackass: The Movie

Weird combination, I know.  But they're guilty pleasures--not meant to make sense!

3.  Yesterday skiing I took my son down a double black diamond run. It has all these warnings at the top, plus a big skull and cross bones.  You can't ski this run alone, so I had never been down it since I only ski alone or with son.  But I figured he was ready.  He did fine.  Only one little spill.  But when we got almost all the way down, and a guy with his little girl skied past us.  She was a little kid, maybe 2nd or 3rd grade.  This was a bit humbling for my son.  As he pointed out, she was going faster than he was!  Then again, on little skis you can just snow-plow between the moguls (which she was).  We emerged proud of ourselves, nonetheless. 

4. On the lift yesterday, I pointed out one guy to my son who was really, really good.  Just, wow, amazingly impressive.  And my son said, "Is he as good as you, Mom?"  So sweet!

  1. Sounds like skiing was so fun! Whoosh!

    And I love what your son said. :)
