Hello there, 2014

January 2, 2014

The conclusion of the holiday season has happened with the celebration of a new year in our house. This weekend, I plan on taking down all the Christmas decorations and adjust to lack of sparkling white lights I see from my chair when I watch television.

2013 was a good year for all intents and purposes. So was 2012, and 2011 and 2010 and ... you get the point. The years haven’t been perfect nor did we go without some missteps, fumbles and unexplainable loss for my step-kids. However, I’m a firm believer that we make the most of what we’re given and you can only learn from your mistakes and move on.

Since we’re obsessed with making new year’s resolutions.
Here are mine:
1. Adopt a healthier lifestyle.
2. Spend more time taking photos with my fancy camera and not my iPhone.
3. Write an actual letter and mail it to a friend once a month.

That’s it.


84 Months Old

November 19, 2013

And just like that, Troy is seven years old.
I remember writing this post when he turned two, when he turned threewhen he turned five and turned six. And this one about the day he was born.

 We very often live week to week in terms of what needs to be done and what can be pushed off. What do I have to do in the next seven days and next thing you know you're stumbling across Christmas decorations in the store and it's only November. We just concluded another soccer season and are soon to start on basketball for the first time. Next week is Thanksgiving and we'll share it with extended family at our house. Then it's just over three weeks until Christmas. Meanwhile, this little guy gets bigger and bigger and makes me laugh every day. I'm really lucky to be his mom because I get to think about my week to week plans with him.



Why We're Parents of the Year

October 1, 2013

When your child has his first loose tooth it's only natural to talk up the Tooth Fairy and keep their expectations low by reminding them that we only got a quarter for the first tooth and then a dime for every other tooth when you were kids.

I had also added that the Tooth Fairy paid more on Saturdays but that was mainly because my parents were visiting last Saturday.

This past Saturday, we decided to take Troy's tooth out with a bang. Literally.

Here is a video of how Troy lost his first tooth with a Nerf gun.

For the record, the Tooth Fairy paid $5 because it was the first tooth and Saturday.
