It's only the beginning

This song came on the radio this afternoon as I was driving Master Commentbox home from his drum lesson. It brought back some pretty fabulous memories for me. It's such an uplifting tune, and I associate it with some gutsy decisions I've made in my life that turned out really well...like marrying Mr Commentbox when we were both quite young and naive, and also having two babies when we were quite young and naive. I looked this song up and discovered that it came out the same year Miss Commentbox was born, and I think it sums up the optimism of those early Commentbox years, so challenging and so worth it.

When I walked into the warm house this evening the divine aroma of home-baked cookies welcomed me home. Miss C is a young woman now (and a baker extraordinaire), and I still feel that it's only the beginning...so many more fabulous days and nights ahead for us.

So here's Deborah Conway with "It's Only the Beginning."

Does anyone else think that Fifi sounds like she has a cold?

The day that I walk into the house and one of my children has cooked/cleaned something is still far away, but I'm optimistic.. I've been putting a lot of effort into making it look like cooking is fun. Hopefully, they're falling for it. The poor saps.
