Today, I fell out of the RV. I was about to walk down the steps. I tripped – with my 21-month-old in my arms. I landed on my right ankle and my left wrist, holding my baby up and away from me. Remarkably, she didn’t even have a scratch. (I, however, just took ibuprofen). (Do you pronounce it with the “u” or not? I’m curious).
Later, I thought about how all future presidential candidates should be required to star in a reality TV show prior to the election. It is so hard to get behind all of the political clutter to actually see what each candidate stands for.
Someday I might want to run for a political office (but probably not president). I like the idea of impacting the local community and helping to shape the future of our country.
I wonder what my girls will be, who they will be, and what causes will inspire their hearts. Our 4-year-old holds steady in her ambition to be a nurse. She also is quite the artist. And she saves lives…
Tim was filming the girls at bathtime tonight because they were splashing like crazy and laughing. Our littlest slipped (she was sitting down; she just sort of slid forward) and took a dive for the water. Her big sister caught her and helped her straighten up. She then stated confidently, “I saved her life. I actually saved her life.” (And we caught it all on camera). It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.
Have you ever run for a political office? Would you want to? What do your kids want to be when they grow up?
