2016 is going to be the year to get organized!
I didn’t make any resolutions, but I really want to get the whole house in order. This has been an ongoing project. I hope to get it done by this year.
Happy New Year everyone!
It’s already December!? Where did the year go?
My baby girlfriend turned 1 on November 16. Instead of having a huge first birthday party, we decided to take a family trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Traveling as a family of 6 is not an easy feat, but we survived and had an amazing time.
I was hoping to get back into blogging, but it looks like daily life has kept me crazy busy.
Can you believe it’s already Halloween? I can’t believe tomorrow will be November.
We had several options for costumes this year.
Most of the kids were pretty happy being super heroes.
Mr. C., on the other hand, immediately changed into his zombie costume from last year after this little photo shoot. Of course, my baby girlfriend had no choice.
Here they are posing… Trying to give me their best super hero look.
Then, the boys left and these gals took center stage.
The little lady, loves being Wonder Woman, while Supergirl decided to inspect the grounds. She’s almost walking… sigh…
And this one, is ready to rule the world.
Hope you all had a great Halloween!! I can’t wait until next year… well, actually, yes, I can.
Where did the time go? How can it be October? The last post I wrote was back in March? It’s true, when you have kids time moves quickly.
And having four of them is still something I’m getting use to. The Mister has been really great with them. HE’S A ROCK STAR!
Here are the four of them on the first day of school, back in August. They all dressed themselves, except, of course, for the Baby Girlfriend.
They were all really excited about going back to school. Mr. C started 4th grade and Bakey started 1st grade. The Little Lady is ready for preschool, but we’re not quite ready to let her go, yet. The Baby Girlfriend is standing on her own more and more these days. We will have another walker soon… I am not ready. not. at. all.
In 2 weeks, I’ll hopefully be in bed sooner than midnight, so that I can wake up early to get ready to go back to work. TWO WEEKS. I am ready and not ready to go back to the grind. I have definitely bonded with my baby and it seems as if we’re finally getting the hang of things. I pretty much know her different cries, her schedule. It was quite a struggle in the beginning, but now, we’ve got it down. I still don’t think we, mothers, have enough time off of work to care for our babies. We really need more time, at least a year. Or at least work part time from home. Maybe, telecommute. Something more that allows mothers to be there for her young children and not be penalized for it. There should be more options for new mothers especially those who are not high paying executives who can afford the best for their children. You know what I mean… sigh.
I’ll leave you with my heart for today. Nature. The clouds were unbelievable on the 405 today and the traffic wasn’t bad either.
It’s 2015 and I never got around to saying Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s already February. Life is just flying by. I’m still on maternity/family bonding leave and only have a little over a month left with my “Little Luv-Luv.” She’s acquired a new nickname as she’s gotten a bit older. Life with four kids has been a challenge. The real challenge is how I handle certain situations. My Mister has been great at pointing out my response/reactions to things. I really need to get a grip and act like the adult. I forget that the kids are 8, 5, 2… sigh. I’m the parent, the adult and I really need to let “it” go, yes, just like the Frozen song.
So, starting now, I’m holding myself accountable for my actions. I’m going to do my best to not yell and overreact to little things. I mean they really are little things. How much trouble can these kids get into?
One of my favorite posts is this post about kids and playtime.
I think we own almost all the apps Toca Boca has to offer. I heart their products. They’re fantastic!
My kids love to sing this song. It’s another song the mister dislikes. I don’t mind it.
My “Little Luv-Luv” has been quite a handful these days. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have a baby in the house. A lot of my life has been completely put on hold which includes blogging. I hope to get out of the woods soon.
I leave you with my heart of the day.
