My apologies for the blurry pics, but I stumbled onto this scene of Audrey "waltzing" with her Hello Kitty yesterday, and in an effort to capture the moment I totally disregarded my camera settings
I am constantly trying to balance my desire for Audrey and Millie to do all the things I wished I had done (i.e. learned an instrument, studied photography, learned to speak French fluently*, gone to RISD, actually possessed a talent that would have gained me admission into RISD) and not pushing them so hard to follow a creative path that they both end up accountants (nothing against accountants of course -- we have a very dear friend who's an accountant -- love him.)
*Audrey and I were reading Madeline before bed last night, which lead to recounting stories of Bryan's and my trip to Paris before she was born, which in turn lead to her requesting to learn some French words. And despite four years of high school French and four more years of college French, I could come up with exactly 20 words of actual French to teach her. So given my regret over not learning and her desire to learn, I'm thinking it might be fun to take a conversational French class together...Stay tuned.
