When The To-Do List Goes Out Of The Window

As a lover of writing, I constantly find myself writing everything down at any moment of the day whether it be important or just leisure. So, of course the arrival of mommyhood and married life have made the once busy things in my life even busier now. The infamous to-do lists (yes it is plural for a reason) have became a well known staple surrounding my every thought, computer, journal, wall calendar, refrigerator to-do list and android phone apped environment. Ironically, there is always a hearty chunk of to-do's that do not get done and ultimately wind up on the next new to-do list. The whole point for a to-do list is to remember to do these things in case I get a brain fog and my memory stops working for a bit. It does no good when I end up forgetting the things I wrote down (one thousand times) for the whole purpose of not forgetting. I know I can't be the only mommy out here with a severe case of forgetting to-do what's on the ever increasing to-do lists! Please prove me wrong! How often does this happen to other mommies and future mommies on the go? Please share the juicy details of your own little mommy handicap!

Back To Work I Go

Ahhhhh! Back to the incredible world of working! This week brought a heavy change to my mommy schedule. On Monday morning I started work again full time after  six months of job hunting. Although I like to categorize myself under "moms that really like to work and feel a sense of accomplishing something by working and professional adult interaction" I also love spending a good chunk of daytime with my baby boy. So, of course I experienced a moment of being trapped by that huge bittersweet feeling of being happy to be back to work but also being a little sad about losing that extra special time with my son. But I realized that at the end of the day I am blessed to see what is still the beauty of my day regardless of how many hours I work which is: still making time for my hubby and especially for my son in spite of every other task that I have to take care of in this sometimes busy place called life. Its amazing to see the beauty of hidden energy, a little creativity and a yearning to just make the most of whatever time I have to spend with my boy. That is my great reward at the end of the work day. So, all in all I guess I kind of do have the best of both worlds all depending on how I percieve it and what I choose to make out of the time that I have with the baby boy that I love.


Destination Pedestals

As I enter back into the workforce yet once again after being (forcefully) unemployed for the past six months I enter with A newfound perspective. This time I will be used as a light instead of being used as a tool of pessimism and complaining. This time I will continuously ask God to humble so the things that I have sacrificed will result into gratitude and motivation to do greater things to follow. This is not my forever this is my right now. This is the place in my life that I am in right now and if I really desire something greater I will continue to allow right now to boost me into the next wonderful and more satisfying place or shall I say destination that God has put in my heart and in me to manifest. So, I look at this job or shall I say opportunity as not a stumbling block but a stepping stool to further me to my next pedestal that will further lead me to my great destination. Yes! Im gonna embrace the ride there. The blessing is always in the lesson. Oneluv and GodBless.

A Life Full of Sweeping and Mopping

OK! No one ever warned me that one of the huge changes that came with  motherhood was to always keep your broom, dustpan and mop on standby! Yes, this is yet another acquired skill that I wish I could use on my resume. I think there is a secret code between toddlers that says "experimentation=big messes!" Since I am a fan for my child's sense of exploration I often let him indulge in getting a little messy but I also use great caution when doing so. Therefore I am sincerely grateful for Mr. Broom and Mr. Mop.  I have also found a great deal of respect for Mr. Swiffer! LOL! So, yes I have come to the realization that this life of motherhood will get a little messy from time to time but the beauty of having resources to clean up these small messes is priceless. As long as my life is full of sweeping and mopping I can keep at least some things under control. What is your life full of at the moment? Share your acquired motherhood skill.

Picture Story Wednesday!

So, I've been observing a lot of blog activity lately from fellow bloggers (yes I've been snooping around) and I've come to find out that Wednesdays seem to be "Wordless Wednesday". Well after this recent observation I pondered whether or not I would follow this blog ritual. After long and deep consideration I decided to just start my own "Wordless Wednesday" ritual just with a little twist or should I say remix! Introducing: Picture Story Wednesday!

The two's are coming! The two's are coming!

That's right! It's almost that time of the year guessed it: Birthday Time! Although this time is a little or should I say A lot different from last year, this year my baby boy is entering phase 2: the second year of his toddler life! With the abrupt coming of age two, I have been presented with the uncomfortable traits that it's bringing along. Traits such as: whining, hitting, kicking, ignoring instructions and experimenting with mischief. Yes, I have my work cut out for me and this is just a sneak peek (hopefully it stays at this level throughout his phase two)! Although I'm grateful that this isn't as bad as other mothers have said and witnessed it to be I also pray that I am mentally and physically prepared for all that "phase two" has to offer to this amateur mommy.

Getting Into Character

Recently I stumbled upon an interesting article in a magazine which featured mommy celebrity actress, Katherine Hiegl. In the article Katherine shared that during her nightly storytime hour with her daughter, she would always embellish the stories a bit by making different accents for different characters. I was happy to know that someone else was doing this besides me, but it also led me to think how many other non actress/ celebrity moms do this same storytime ritual with thier children? What is your storytime voice/voices? Do you have any or any favorite stories that your little one picks in particular? For example some of mine are:The Three Little Kittens: british accent, Green Eggs and Ham: spanish accent. I also just love the stories that allow you to muster up the most creative character voices and go to town on a variety of voices and sounds. Some of my favorites in that category are: Are You My Mother and also The Tooth Book and a few nameless others . To sum everything up in all fairness, this innocent time with my son secretly allows me to explore my inner actress. Something that I can do at the cost of my entertained son and sometimes very entertained hubby lol!
