I have so much to do for work that just thinking about it makes me dizzy... What the hell was I thinking when I decided to go back to work??? Honestly I love it but now I need to play the procrastination game. Sam is in school, Judah is with his nanny and me sigh... I get to breath deep with a minute to myself.

So did I ever tell ya about how Scott and I first started dating??? I didn't... Well then let me tell you...

Scott and I have known each other since we were 10 years old. Yes I know how romantic but I can assure you we did not start dating until 13 years later. Scott was quite the obnoxious wisenheimer back then and I didn't like him very much. Years later we both graduated from college and moved to NYC. Because neither of us knew many people we often hung out just as friends. He would try and fix me up with other guys I would try and fix him up with other girls... But it was always interesting that when things didn't quite work out with the other guys Scott would get a little too excited over my disappointing date life. One evening Scott and I went out to dinner. It was the night before he was going on vacation to Italy. After dinner we walked to a local bar for a drink where he stopped me in the middle of the sidewalk right in front of Sparks and he kissed me. Well at that very moment I knew without a doubt in my mind that Scott was going to be the man I was going to marry. I don't know how I knew it but I just did. Its funny how a split second can determine the rest of your life for the good and for the bad. But in this case of course it was for the good. He left the next day for Italy and a week later when he came home everything just unfolded naturally. In fact the first time I saw his parents after we started dating, which was very shortly after that first kiss, they told me I could call them mom and dad... Whoa... slow down Leshins... But then later I realized that Scott never brought anyone home before and his parents were just so ecstatic that Scott brought home a girl... Ha...

I am so proud to be married to Scott. He is such a great person and I love him so much! He is the best dad with the exception of my father who is also a great dad and Scott's dad who is another great dad. OK this is going no where. I am going to get back to work now.

Sam's First Day of School!

I never would have thought looking back that Sam would be able to go to school at 3 years old. We are so happy that we found such a beautiful program that can provide Sam with all of his needs including medical needs, therapeutic needs, and academic needs. Sam started school yesterday. Grandpa Dave bought Sam his first day of school outfit. He looked just gorgeous! He is accompanied by a nurse and rides the bus both there and back. It is a 5 day a week program from 9-2:30. Yesterday I went to the school at around 1:30. I was told that Sam had a great day! He did not cry at all and he participated in all classroom activities. When I got there Sam was reading a story on the computer. He looked up when he heard my voice then continued to finish what he was doing. After he was done they put him down on the mat and he made his way over to me to give me a hug. It really was so cute. I was told he was good as gold and so attentive. We are so proud of him!!!

Labor Day

We had such a beautiful weekend to mark the end of a very long and busy Summer. Saturday we celebrated Scott's grandmother's (aka Nana)85th birthday. She looks fantastic, would't you agree. The party was at Aunt Iris & Uncle Arnaud's beautiful house on the water. We all had such a great time especially Sam. We had Sam in the pool all day and he even got to go out on Uncle Arnaud's boat which he loved!
