Wow, I haven't posted in a long time on this blog. Ooops, have been too busy posting reviews at http://raymentsreadingsrantsandramblings.blogspot.com/
Jake has a lot of fears, so we are always talking about ways to overcome them. I have always been honest with him that everyone is scared of something even his mom (shut up Jeff, I'm ONLY afraid of Skiing, Driving and June Bugs). He is no different or a less of a person because of this. We've talked about how if you let the fear overcome you, it can take away from your enjoyment of life. I've always believed that "actions speak louder than words" so instead of just talking to him about fears, I thought I could show him an example of someone trying to overcome them. Yup that's right kids, Mom is taking one for the team. She is going to overcome her fear of downhill skiing (who the hell thought it was a good idea to go rushing down a steep hill with two sticks tied to their feet -- seriously how smart can that be) in front of a bunch of strangers, all for the benefit of her first born. Hmm, wonder if he appreciates it ; )
I will document this (hopefully not from a hospital bed) next week on this blog -- maybe even with humiliating pictures. Stay Tuned!
