Election Day 2008

I am against prop 8 and I am just amazed at how many ignorant people are out there voting to pass it. What made me tear up is seeing a clip of this couple loading their babies in to the car and saying how they don't want their kids to be taught gay marriage is normal. You know why it hit a sensitive spot? Because ever since I had the baby, see how this fragile being grow from nothing into a remarkable child, makes me appreciate all living things more. How can someone that had children not respect all life the same and still be so prejudice? Words cannot express the anguish I feel inside...

Orion's first time in the pool

It also hit 100 degrees last week (two days), so we took Orion to the pool for the first time. It was lots fun. He has so little body fat (he's 10 percentile in weight), he started shivering. I took him out of the water and he kept on pointing to his friends in the water indicating he wants to go back in. So I took him back in and held him close to my body instead of holding on to the baby donut he was sitting in hoping it would keep him warmer.

That didn't work and he continued to be cold and started shivering more. When he tried to make some sound or say something, he would stutter because his body was shaking. I was so busy laughing but eventually decided I need to take him in and put him under warm running water to warm him up.

Later on husband told me that he was like that when he was young. He didn't have much body fat either and could never stay in the water more then 30-45 minutes or else he gets too cold. Orion's just like a typical kid, isn't he? Rather stay and play and ignoring whatever discomfort he's experiencing.

Remembering names

I am not one of those people that's really good at remembering people's name naturally. It's something that I had to work hard on. Now my peers are starting to have kids, and I find it harder to have to remember the kids name too. I am not talking about those friends and their kids I see often. I am talking about those acquaintance that you don't see often and had already tried hard to remember their partner's name and now i have to remember their kids names too.
