Sometimes I am too lazy to be a good mother. For instance, for the last few weeks, Eve has been climbing down the two stairs that separate our kitchen and family room head-first, and I haven't made the effort to correct her. Instead, I just put a bunch of padding at the bottom of the stairs and watched as she landed on it. She didn't get hurt...very often.
However, I decided that I had better not let her get too attached to this bad habit, so the other day, Keyvan and I spent about 20 minutes teaching her how to go down the stairs by herself. I was amazed by how fast she caught on. She still doesn't do it right every time, but I think she did pretty well:
Keyvan and I can't agree on when we actually met. It was sometime in either April or May of 2006, at a ward social in Provo Canyon. We played tennis for our first date, during which I learned that he spoke English. It took me a few more dates to realize that he was Persian, not East Indian, and a few dates after that to realize that I wanted to marry him. I professed my undying love shortly before boarding a plane to study in France for 4 months, during which we had long, expensive conversations lasting up to 5 hours. 4 months after I returned from France, Keyvan popped the question (in Provo Canyon), and 3 months after that, we were married! We live in Payson where Keyvan works as an Electrical Engineer. I work as a nurse doing Home Health and teach violin and piano lessons. Our daughter, Eve, joined our family January 2010 and makes us incredibly happy!
