The eyes I see, staring back at me
looking so trusting and brown
The eyes I see are bright with tears and and pleading for understanding.
eyes without deceit, without malice or spite.

these are things they haven't learned.

I look into a pair of eyes, slightly jaded and frustrated.
they look to see how far to push
before my eyes turn red with ire.

two sets of eyes, so different and still so close.

Two sets of precious eyes for whom I have the task
of keeping safe, keeping sane, keeping happy.

what I give to those two sets of eyes..

Love that they can see, always.

The Heat of the Political season

Oh Joy, it's the smear campaigns all over the place.

Republicans say - you democrats are soft on security and will raise taxes
Democrats say - you republicans got us into Iraq, spend spend spend on the "War on Terror" .

Ok that's really simplifying it.

This is the time of year to look at who is going to do you, your city , state and nation the best job.

I don't vote for one party or another, I look at people's issues and see if I like what they are saying and more importantly , if they stand by what they say.

I live in a district that has hotly contested seats, so much so that they have gained national attention.

What am I looking for in a candidate?

1. For someone who is for getting a real time table to bring the troops out of Iraq - to me they shouldn't have been there anyway.

2. Is for universal healthcare - see how fast you agree with me when you have no insurance and you or your family gets sick.

3. A woman's right to choose

4. No marriage bans

5. Finding the truth about the "war on Terror"

6. Protecting Civil liberties and privacy

7. Keeping pedophiles away from any child

8. Balanced education for all children

9. Getting foreign aid to those in need

10. Moving on the Darfur issue.

Those are my top 10.

Come on spin machine...Come and see if you get me to vote for your candidate.
engage me and tell me in the long run my vote doesn't count...

Election Day is coming- are you prepared.

So who do you think this is vain??

I wonder, are we raising kids to bask in compliments?

I am biased when it comes to J. I think he is the cutest baby on earth. I have people who literally gawk at him and say he's so cute.

of course some of these people are strange bus people but it's still the same.
Why do I bring this up? J now looks for people to smile and clap for...Play hide and seek with.
This is normal some say.

So will he grow up to be vain?

Am I vain for sending in pictures to a modeling agency for him?
Yes I realize that most likely nothing will come of it, but am I vain to think that something might?

I must say he's still a typical baby...Trying to walk and getting HUGE.

I think I maybe afraid of turning into one of those mom's that push their kids into pageants and such. He's still a baby...

I'm not THAT vain???
