Last night, Eric and I had a lovely date night at P.F. Chang's. We began talking about the Chinese Zodiac, and handy wikipedia gave me each year's motto. Hilariously, they fit extremely well...
Everett and Eric - both born in the year of the ox. Motto: "I persevere." This could not be more true of both of them.
Pax - born in the year of the rabbit, or more accurately the hare. Motto: "I relax." We had a good chuckle at this, because Pax is definitely our relaxed baby.
Me - born in the year of the monkey. Motto: "I entertain." I don't know if this was really fitting prior to having kids, but it definitely fits me now. I (and all moms, really) do nothing but entertain all day. From singing Old MacDonald and the ABC's to doing silly dances and making crazy noises and faces...did I mention this can be seen in public? I get requests. I can't let my fans down. ;)
This is the year of the dragon. It's motto: "I reign." I think this calls for some iron chef competitions. The secret ingredient? Gagoos!
