We had such a pleasant temperature today although it was a bit windy and little chilly but it was bearable enough with a light sweater so we decided to have a walk in the neighborhood. I brought my two Princesses with me since my husband was working.
The little Princess rode in the stroller that I push and the big Princess walked with her baby doll in the back. I thought it was so clever of her to bring the doll this time. I did not let her ride her bike for I didn’t wanna deal with whines and complains about how tiring it is to pedal in an uphill part of the neighborhood.
We did walk at least 30 minutes, good enough to burn a few calories that we took before we went out. As we were finishing our walk and on the way home, the big Princess fell down on a concrete pathway. She fell all the way down that she got her upper lip and chin scraped and a little bloody. She cried of course but I did not entertain her so she’d stop soon but poor girl, she was so pitiful after that unexpected fall. It was her fault though for she just kept running and wearing flip flops.
You can tell if a man is handy or not. If he is, you see manly tools in his garage or round his house simply because he has to have those tools in order to get his project going or simply fixing things that get broken in the house. I can tell that once he searches for a tool like a pneumatic sensor, he would go to a handyman’s website formerly known as Reidsupply now Essentra Components as its new name. You can recommend this to your husband, brother or any man you know for all his industrial tool needs.
I decided not to send to school my kindergarten student due to bitterly cold weather condition we’re experiencing right now here in North Texas. The temperature was only 17 degrees Fahrenheit but felt like 7 when we woke up. Although the FWISD has delayed the school for 2 hours, I just could not go out there and suffer from this cold weather. I don’t think it is worth the hassle of driving my kids to school in this not so very pleasant day.
Mr. Sun is up and shining on us brightly yet the temperature hasn’t improved much. Current temperature by the way is 21 degrees F. I hope the teacher will understand. Some of her students might be absent too for a pretty obvious reason like I have. 500 plus schools around here are closed, FWISD is just one of the few who chooses to let their students come to school despite of the winter warning in the area.
A guitar as it ages can become a valuable position in the next 50-70 years old. A good black martin guitar is priced $800 today may value quadruple more in the future. So, my advice would be, take care of your possessions, make sure to handle your guitar with care so that the next generation that has a talent can use it and then eventually pass it on too. I tell you how incredible it is to feel inheriting such a jewel.
Cheers to the greatest milestone my baby Princess has achieved today! I am still amazed 6 hours passed since she did that thing. I am a mother and surely am very proud of her. She put on her socks and shoes on her own today! Can you believe that? She is only 2 and a half years old yet she did something great, at least for me.
Earlier before she did that she was kind of bugging me to put on those to her because she was all excited going to the playground at her big sister’s school but it wasn’t time to go yet so I just kind of her ignored her. So by doing that, it taught her to be independent by putting them on for the first time of her life! Take note, she put them on the right feet!
I took a picture of her feet with shoes on for remembrance. Of course, I don’t want to miss blogging about such a great achievement of hers so that someday when she is old enough to read and understand this blog, she can read it especially this post. I love you baby girl and mommy is so happy of you today!
“The most precious and beautiful jewel a mother can wear around her neck is her child/ren’s arms”. That I agree 100%. Mothers don’t need those sparkling diamonds or gold for those cute little arms of her children are more than enough to wrap around her neck, everyday! Besides, hugs are free and so easy to give.
This photo below is of me and my little Princess M taken from last night in her bed. She went to bed so upset for she was battling with her sleepiness and got so cranky. When I finally put her down to bed, she wrapped her arm around me and wouldn’t let me go. We stayed in that position for a good couple of minutes.
It felt good, really really good to receive a very tight hug from my love baby. It’s not new to me to be hugged by my two Princesses but last night was just superb. I savored the moment with her near me for I know she’s not going to be this small for long.
Tomorrow she will be another day older…
It finally snowed for the first time since winter in North Texas has begun. What happened last November 2013 with whiteness on the ground and plenty of it that lasted for six days can’t be considered as snow for it was just pure thick ice all over.
Yesterday was a snow, it was heavenly! But it stopped pouring and did not last long. However, my little Princess took advantage of some snow and did not miss the chance to enjoy herself alone making snow angels. Photograph below. She actually looked so cute out there, enjoying alone.
I went outside real quick to check on her but as soon as she saw me coming, she said, “look!” and lay down to make a snow angel. Quickly enough I had my phone ready so I was able to capture her on the concrete.
Later that afternoon, my first Princess came home from school so upset and disappointed for there were no more snow left on the ground/concrete. She was expecting plenty of it but what can I do? I have no control over mother nature. She cried, poor girl!
My husband is off work for 1 full week. That only means I can take a break from going out in the cold mornings to take our kindergarten to school. I don’t mind driving her in the mornings but with another kid in tow on cold temperatures, that should give you an idea how troublesome it is for a mother like me to have to dress three bodies each day. We cannot just go out there on sleeveless or ordinary clothing but layers and layers of clothing need to be worn for us to be comfortable. It’s wintertime and we need to dress appropriately.
My two girls depend on me as to what kind of clothing they wear each time we go out. Imagine to dress up each child in such a little time plus myself and it’s not every morning that the girls are in the mood for going out. I sometimes have to wrestle with them just to get their bottoms out of the house and go. Chaotic and busy is the usual morning we have here but… since the husband is off, I guess I am gonna have a more relaxing and less hassle mornings for a while. I am glad and I am happy. If he is home, that means he can take our kindergarten to school and I can get to stay inside where it’s warm and comfortable.
It is pretty normal for kids boys or girls to be mobile and I am okay with that. My girls luckily, are healthy, plays/runs a lot around the house, very energetic at times. Most of the times though they are manageable and calm and doing girly things. However, there are times that these girls would team up and do some weird things that amaze me. Stunts like that in the picture below.
Princess number two normally follows me wherever I go especially when I am in the kitchen doing dishes or cooking. She is there with me too but doesn’t bother me instead she’d just do her own thing. Okay so, last night I was too focused on finishing the dishes and when I turned around, I found the little one in upside down position just behind me and so I called the big sister to look at her sister… she came hurriedly and joined the baby sister in the same position which I caught in photograph.
I did not try to stop them from doing it because I trust they wouldn’t fall and break their bones. I was thinking they could be interested in gymnastics someday and hopefully join the Olympic 15 years from now. Hehehe, wishful thinking but there is a possibility they could become an Olympian…
