"I have a lot of things to ask for forgiveness, the problem is I can't remember any of them." -Louie
I find this absolutely unbelievable from Louie. Yet despite our excessive doting, let's call it confidence building, he is humble enough to realize we all have something that could use forgiving. On this first night of Rosh Hashanah, the beginning of a new year, as you celebrate sweetness and wishes of luck, it's a time of reflection of the previous year. Tashlich is my favorite part, you walk to water and toss in bits of bread representing the times you went awry. Louie and I usually wander across the street to a small pond and rather than itemize, we say what we'd like to do more of for the coming year. It's a beautiful ritual. We attempted dinner with family and made it past the gefilte fish round and onto chicken soup before Louie felt funny and we left. He got sick in the car (we were prepared) but requested a stop off for Teddy Grahams and felt better. It's ironic, we watched an old movie of him today when he was 3. And he mentioned some of the same foods he is currently eating, we all laughed. Back to the familiar. He did hop on an exceptionally unfamiliar hoverboard today. Being well balanced is a good thing, both literally and figuratively.
