babe lately

babe has been one of 2 things lately...

1. a huge pain in the butt that doesn't listen to a single word coming out of our mouths, who thinks HE runs the household by spouting demands, and screaming and crying to no end if he doesn't get his way.

2. the cutest, sweetest kid who says the funniest most random things, who just wants to snuggle and kiss.

I asked my husband if he thought babe had a split personality because one night my husband made him a little snowman out of rice balls but it only lasted about 1 minute before collapsing. Babe said "well, it was a nice try" and ate his rice. I immediately thought how sweet of him to acknowledge my husband's effort and then immediately thought of a scenario where he was NOT in a good mood and would INSIST my husband rebuild the snowman and end up crying and falling asleep without taking a single bite of rice.

That's my babe for you. Of course we love him either way, yes... even when he is screaming in my face.

I don't know if it's because of the baby, I like to think he's old enough that he wouldn't be jealous, but I hope it's just a small phase and in a few months we won't even remember what a brat he was right before he turned 5.

Speaking of the baby:

he wants a sister! he is so cute. I asked "but what if it's a boy?", he said "well, then can we have a boy and a girl too?"... um, no... absolutely not.

a few weeks ago my SIL was over with her 2 kids and her baby was crying very close to our bedtime. I told babe "I hope the baby doesn't cry long, I'm tired", he said (pointing to my tummy) "maybe we shouldn't have this baby".

one day I was cleaning my room and he kept asking if I could play with him in his room. I told him I would go after I was done cleaning and said he should play by himself. he said "maybe I will play in my room all day when the baby pops off". yes, he said pops off... I love my babe.

I decided that I would only set one goal for 2014, and that would be to "ENJOY every moment as much as possible". The first few months hold a handful events that I have been looking forward to with so much eagerness in my heart. Sometimes life throws a curve ball and you might need to take a step back and rethink how these exciting events will be fully enjoyed under unexpected circumstances.

Let's first countdown to said events and then discuss further:

34 days until Britney in Vegas. It seems like a lifetime ago that I wrote about this and I can't believe it's a month away.

67 days until our Maui trip. FINALLY!! a REAL vacation. One of my goals for 2013 was to take a "real vacation", but this trip took FOREVER to finally come through (saving that for another post).

95 days until Babe's 5th Birthday. Yes, this is a HUGE event. I have literally had this birthday theme picked out since his 3rd birthday and started buying stuff last summer. I might be more excited than him, just a little.


176 days until Baby #2 is due. Yup, we're having a baby.

So, this is the reason my main goal this year will be to "enjoy". Last year when I wrote out my goals, my hope was that I would accomplish them all BEFORE having baby #2. I must admit that I did pretty well besides not taking a vacation and half assing on the minimalist thing (something I still really want to work on). But once it started getting closer to the end of the year, I faced the fact that 1. my husband was NOT ready for another baby and 2. neither was I because I still wanted that damn vacation AND I had a Britney trip now planned in Feb.
And then less than 1 week after we bought our Maui tickets... I found out I was pregnant.
The first few weeks all I could think about was the plans I already had, that did not include me being with child, but as 2014 rolled around I realized there is nothing I can do but try to make the most of it. So what if I can't have a delicious fruity cocktail before seeing Britney perform and so what if I can't zip line in Maui... as long as I'm well enough to be present, I might as well enjoy it... right?!

i've missed my blog

It's been 2 long months since I have been "slightly" disconnected from the social media world. I haven't posted at all, I haven't been reading other people's post's, I check Instagram maybe every 3-4 days and my personal e-mail account has over 500 e-mails. I don't know what happened, but after I wrote about me as a working mom, I felt guilty about even opening my laptop. 

I really miss blogging though. I miss sharing the little things that happen in life, the things babe says or does... and I miss reading about those little (or big) things in your lives. I look forward to getting back into it though. I've had a nice break and I have so much to share. 
Happy New year to you!
