A day all about Lola
Tuesday, Lola had a meeting with a talent agency in L.A. I've been blowing it off and rescheduling several times because I really have conflicting feelings about it. When we called to cancel last time, I was feeling pretty much like that was it, better left alone. But Dan was the one to make the actual cancellation call and wouldn't you know it, he ended up rescheduling it to last Tuesday. I decided I would just get it over with and go. I really despise driving to L.A. and this is a major factor to me. How will I be able to commit to drive her there if she gets called to audition for something? This meeting was just to see whether or not she will be a client so maybe nothing will come of it, which I will be so fine with. Anyway, it was about 7 hours round trip for a meeting that lasted all of 10 minutes (max!). The highlight of the day was a much-needed, relaxing dinner at a great restaurant at Stone Brewery, that I wouldn't have even known existed, if it had not been for my friend Sabrina. The food is fresh, local and organic. The ales are pretty darned good too. After our dinner, we took a walk in the yard, crossing over ponds and creeks on a little bridge and there was a big clearing, lined with picnic tables and benches, bamboo trees and other abundant vegetation. Lola was tickled pink at this discovery. We will definitely be going again soon!
Lola is starting 1st grade this fall! She attends a great school that allows us to homeschool 2 days a week. She is loving school and learning, especially reading.
I can't believe she is already 2. She is growing up fast and loves to chase after her big sister.
My Husband, Dan
Or, as he prefers to call himself, "the reason our kids are so cute". If I hear one more person gush about how the girls have his 'beautiful eyes', I will throw up. I'm pretty sure all the work involved with pregnancy and labor was all me.
