First of all apologies guys...picture overload ahead!! 

Even though some are blurry and not so perfect lighting Emma's celebration was great!  
Had a great time with the family!  That is exactly how I like my parties!!

Now I think my life can go on after having celebrated Emma's Birthday party.  
No more dreaming of yellow and bees!

The Happiest Birthday...

Emma has hit the 1-year mark. Happy birthday Sweet Girl!  She has brought joy, happiness, frustration and lots of work for this family.  Yup tough days and harder nights.  We've grown together, laughed together...we've also cried together.  It's been a roller coaster.  But thank God he sent her to us.  I cried this morning as I sang Happy Birthday to her, no worries nobody saw me except Emma as she was watching me and just smiling :)

She is crossing the line into toddlerhood, it's a bittersweet transition. I miss my little baby even as I delight watching the amazing child she is becoming.

Can't wait to celebrate tomorrow on her Birthday party!

Hope you my friends have an amazing weekend!

morning laughs

This morning laugh post is mostly about Sophie.

I am always amazed that as parents we tell our kids over and over about things and they don't listen but once they hear it from someone else or find out some other way then they pay attention.I don't know if you are familiar with takis, they're this rolled corn tortilla chips hot and spicy and very addictive.  Very popular on this side of the states specially among kids and young people they're sort of like hot Cheetos.  Well Sophia read and I am so glad she did that they cause cancer and ulcers because all of the things added to them and the spiciness.  Well after reading that she has stopped eating them. She said a friend offer some to her in school and she said "Please don't I am a recovering addict!"  that did get a chuckle out of me!!

Sophia coming home from school looks in the mirror and says "OMG I have a bugger and nobody tells me anything!! Those are not true friends!!

She tells me:  "you guys are not spontaneous...like if I ask to go to 7-11 on a weekday you say NO! It's 4 O'clock! I would not take them on a weekday to 7-11 after school that's true.   In reality I would not take them to 7-11 period because what do you buy there? only junk food right?? That's what their dad would do. About the spontaneity she did get another chuckle out of me and it got me thinking she always complains about bed time too early, cleaning her room and taking trash out of her bathroom when it's full  and little things like that. Do I have too many rules?  I started questioning myself.  No I don't think so!  Just enough to make them clean and responsible adults. But one day just randomly  I will take them to 7-11 on a school day I guess it will be ok to bend the rules a little once in a while...

She asked last week to do her own laundry and I agreed.  I told her I would guide her how to sort the laundry and work the washer and dryer.  So she did a couple of loads and it all went well.  I specifically told her that I would hate for her to leave the clothes in either the washer or dryer for half a day (here I go with the rules again right?) Monday after school she came home saying "guess what mom I forgot to wash my PE clothes I guess I am not a responsible woman yet!"

Ha ha!! no my dear Sophie you're not a responsible adult yet, slowly but surely you will get there one day...
but I am proud of you already!!

For one last morning laugh today here's Emma eating avocado or is it an avocado mask?  but it's a good thing that she thinks of moisturizing her face at a young age! lol!!
