justprompts Is there such a thing as truly wiping the slate clean and starting over?  

There's dust when you wipe the slate clean. Even if you use water, that leaves behind residue as well. If you throw the slate out the window it doesn't disappear. If you smash it into a million pieces, those pieces still exist.

I have started over many times so I know. All the dust and all the broken pieces are always still there.

Chalk dust is beautiful. And water, when it falls in drops on the table. The cheapest glass can glitter like crystal when crushed. It's wondrous if you know how to look.

Stars start over, just like us. Everything starts over eventually. Everything… continues.

No, there is no such thing as wiping the slate clean. And there shouldn't be. Recycling is good for the environment.

Go green.

Everything is busy this time of year, isn't it? You are a brave woman to have two kids under three but then they'll probably be spoiled rotten by all their aunties and uncles. Congratulations to all three of you.

It is, it's insanity. Brave? Logan seems to think crazy is a better word. :P And thank you, I wish I could say we know what it is, but it's not quite as cooperative as Gabi was.

Aws. It's still early, right? Are you hoping one way or the other or just happy?

Almost 20 weeks, so we've got time, but it'd be nice to pick out a theme for the crib bedding and stuff that wasn't totally generic. And we already have the girl so it'd be nice to have a boy and have one of each, but I don't have a preference either way. I think Remy's hoping for a little more testosterone in the family, though. He's kind of outnumbered. ;)
