Wordless Wednesday – Going Places

Numbed Aspirations

I love psychology. Love it. Psych classes were always the easiest ones for me to ace in high school and college because all the theories and science behind human behavior just made *sense* to me.

Now I have a new obsession interest. I’ve become interested in all things lactation-related.

Combine these things with my desire to help people, and I have two great career choices there – either a clinical psychologist or a lactation consultant. So . . . what’s the problem?

Both of those fields require medical training. Medical training isn’t like the broadcasting classes I took in college. If I walked out of a class and forgot who invented the first radio, who cares? It’s not endangering anyone. But with medical training, you have to remember all you learn. All.of.it.

And I have the memory of a gnat.

Three Little Birds – Bob Marley

This is my favorite song to sing to Tori while she’s falling asleep. Check out the lyrics:

“Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’,
Smiled with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, (“This is my message to you-ou-ou:”)

Singin’: “Don’t worry ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’,
Smiled with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, “This is my message to you-ou-ou:”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don’t worry!”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing” – I won’t worry!
“‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right” – I won’t worry!
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing, oh no!
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!

Happy happy birthday, baby!

It’s hard to believe that this time last year my little one had only been on the planet for 14 hours.

This morning when we woke up I smiled at my sweet baby girl and sang her “Happy birthday.” I was able to take a little bit of an extended lunch so I could spend some extra time with her today. When I get home tonight we’ll play with one of her new toys; then I’ll tell her birthday story when we go to sleep tonight. It won’t be long before she’ll come to expect these things and more on her birthday. I can’t wait until next year when I can start taking off work to spend her special day with her!
