I've always wanted to be a Mom

There has been successive diseases the past days and all I wish and pray hard for is to get better.

A few strain of virus came to us at the end of winter and the beginning of Spring. We used to welcome spring with a sense of relief from cold, gloomy days but it was different this year.  The flu hit me big time, Chuck and Kylene got really sick mid-October. We found out about Kylene's surgery , it was just successive hit.

So, weekends without ailments are BIG Hoorah! It is Answered Prayer.  Heaven, Thank You!

We are back to being spontaneous and just living it to the fullest!

Let's start with some annoyance on Saturday with a text message saying you should respond to some emails urgently when it is not urgent at all ( cmon, Saturday morning ????)

I refuse...i refuse ...i refuse to live in that moment. We had some event to attend in the morning and running errands in the afternoon. And I can only afford to SMILE. But these moments are the times I look back and definitely told myself, to let go of annoyance because on Saturdays, they deserve the best of me.  I am 100% pure mama. And my children deserves it. They deserve the patient one, the mama that would be bothered at the tiniest details that seemed tiny to me but biggie to my children.

My Cheyenne. 
I am seeing bigger changes on her. Her mood, her choices and her being. I am not sure how many more years is she going to enjoy weekend with us. But I pray she will continue to join our adventures and not chose to be passive or boring or irritating.   She is going through some hormonal changes and I do understand that. I don't want to be controlling.  I want her to independent and self-reliant with the degree of self confidence required as she goes through the awkward years of adolescence.

My Kylene

She makes me giggle. High spirited little rascal who at this age keeps on making me smile. She has developed so many skills that make me wonder . She is 3 and has understood what things she could command from the family. Her smiles are the most beautiful in the morning! I can't resist!

My girls, you have no idea of the importance of your existence to my life.  You have fulfilled a dream for me .  I have always wanted to become a mother.

Stranger things

We are preparing for stranger things ( not in netflix though) and I don't look forward to it but wanting it to finish soon.

Kylene is scheduled for surgery on the 17th November due to her large tonsils and adenoids making sleep cumbersome. She easily gets sicks because of this too- cough , fever, flu, oh name it!

So, the idea of having it removed is so strange to me until I have met a number of people  that actually had it removed while they were young and never regretted it. And so, bravely, I have accepted the challenge in behalf of my girl. I am hoping that when you grow up, you will be Thankful of this decision.

November will be busy and scary and worrying. The most interesting part is her recovery which would take some time. I hope it is going to be steady and less dramatic. We better be tough and brave my little one.

16 years old! ( now 19!)
