For My Kids

I was watching "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and I line struck me (as I am sure it struck all parents out there).

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

For you my big boy and pretty girl. I love you.

It's amazing how fast kids grow, how they can share so many common traits, how they can look so much alike and also be so different, how they acquire their tastes, likes and dislikes, their personality.

I've had 5 years of motherhood so far and I have to say that I am surprised by something new every week. My son loves anything sweet. He adores it. But my daughter goes for a more mature taste, like vanilla ice cream over very, very chocolate. Now how did that happen? They both eat the same food, live in the same house, have the same mommy. And this mommy doesn't even like ice cream! My son is a super extrovert and my daughter is more of the shy type. But my goodness! You wouldn't know this when they argue. I can list all the surprising little tidbits here but I don't think there is enough space or time in a day.

Suffice it to say, I am loving surprises and eagerly awaiting the millions I know are still coming my way.

I'm Back!

Hello, world!

After a brief hiatus, I am back to the blogging world.

It ahs been a long year and a difficult one. I've gone through so much but I'm raring to enter this new chapter in my life with both eyes open and a heart full of hope.

I know I said I was opening a new blog but I found myself constantly returning to this one. So, after accepting that I cannot leave my beloved first blog, Ive decided to resume.

I'll be posting new experieinces, thoughts, recipes, and stories soon! Stay with me folks!
