Yesterday was the Christmas party for kids at John's office. First, Maylin enjoyed the talents of the balloon man and a magician. Then she got to shake Santa's hand, and even managed to pat him on the back when he turned around. She was anxious to get her present (all employees' children get this wonderful benefit -- parents choose from a catalog) -- a little produce stand, complete with plastic fruits and veggies, a basket, and a shopping cart. But maybe she was most excited about getting her face painted at the end by a wonderful artist. Maylin waited so quietly in line after three other children, and then sat beautifully still for the face painter. I was stunned by Maylin's serene beauty.
When I started this blog, it was all about my experience in Paris while I was living there. But now that we've moved back to Berkeley, California, it seems that it's turned more into a mommy blog. I still have a lot of rich memories from Paris, though, that I plan on sharing soon.
Please leave comments about my blog and my photos. Or just say "hello"!
