ouch.watch the teeth.i can see your bite marks.
Sometimes in the middle of the day, after cleaning, I fall into a nap in my room while Em’s in her room. Sometimes, my nap is so heavy that I wake up to find myself tucked in with a throw blanket. Then sometimes, I can feel the bed move because a little toddler is making her way up to look at my face. I pretend sleep to see what she’s going to do because little does she know that her ninja mom is a light sleeper. She usually kisses me then leaves the bed to go back to her room again. One time, I went green and recycled my mom’s old tricks and asked Em to find all the gray hair in my head while I take a short nap. She look through my hair and say, “I found one…” then proceed to brush my hair and make me look pretty for her dad.
Berry Bauble Earmuffs A cluster of winter fruit, dangling before kooky orb-like muffs, warms frosty lobes. Acrylic, wool, polyester, angora. I love knitted accessories…and hopefully one day will pick it up, but for now, these are so adorable. If you know me, I’m very into quirky fashion sometimes, and accessories are just as important statements. Originally, these were $38 and I’ve waited for them for the final sale which brought them down to $9. I quickly bought them because I knew they’d be sold out, which they eventually were. When they arrived, I was so excited; I put them on and they were perfect…not a subtle accessory at all, but that’s what I like about them…they’re almost anime-ish. Complete thumbs up- way up and a little jig-of-a-dance. Source: –Retail: $38Bought: $9Status: own
“Mamam, Jesus told me something!” she retorted from the living room as I was into my first hour shredding paper. Prior to her almost somber toned revelation, I heard her from the other room, in between the shredding, just almost talking to herself, but not. I figured she was complaining, which she tends to do when she doesn’t get her way. Let me start from the beginning. I’m really busy these days preparing for the new baby, making sure we make some more storage room for all Baby Z’s stuff, so to free up some space, I got rid of papers upon papers that were stored in so many boxes and shelves. Shredding for almost an hour, Zem comes up to me and gives me something she drew. I requested, like most slick mothers, that she would make me happy if she wrote out her letters all the way to F by herself. So she did, with the exception of a very mangled “D” so I asked her to write it again. She went to the living room and that’s when the drama started and I heard her talking to herself. I let her carry on with it for a […]
I was clearing out some of my applications in Facebook, so I decided to clean out some of the flairs I’ve been given throughout the months or past year, but I wanted to screen capture it to show I appreciated the thoughtfulness of those who have given me those specific flairs. Again, thanks!
Baby’s healthy. According to all the emails I get, Baby Z should be around 2 lbs. now. I’m into my 3rd trimester and everything looks great, tests are fine, and I just have to prepare looking into the hospital I’ll be delivering. The doctors are happy with the progression, no complications and even my controlled weight gain. So far, I’ve gained 14 lbs. total with 3 more months to go. Also, Baby Z moves around and kicks A LOT! Like we say, ninja 2 in the dojo. Am I waddling? Not yet…only late at night when my body has had it with the change of my center of gravity. So far, no scheduled ultrasounds because there’s no need for any…so you know what that means- this may turn out to be a surprise baby! 😀 Good thing we have names picked out. We’re just praying Baby Z is healthy. PS- Ate Zem thinks Baby Z is gonna hatch.
