Being a parent invariably makes me nostalgic about my own childhood in the most surreal way. I look at my older child, careless and carefree, frolicking through life without so much of a frown or a grimace on his cherubic face (if you take away […]
TJ is obsessed with Thomas and Friends but he does not care much for Thomas himself. His favorite engine is Percy. Today, we had the opportunity to go visit Roaring Camp Railroads in Felton, about 45 minutes from San Jose, and enjoy a Day […]
I hung out at San Jose’s Westfield Valley Mall with the kids today and during our time together, I learned to appreciate, respect, and understand my son just a little bit more than I did yesterday.
Today, as is typical of most Wednesdays, I was at a library’s story-time with TJ and Baby E. As usual, I was wearing Baby E on my self in her Ergobaby while also keeping an eye on TJ at most times. After story-time ended, the […]
My darling little angel baby girl got her 4 months shots today as well as an oral vaccine and she took it #likeagirl . I was so proud of her! I scheduled the appointment for today so TJ could be away at school while I […]

Your toddler keeps saying, “Mommy ‘tay…mommy ‘tay…mommy…” asking you to stay just a little longer for nap times and bed times and insists on just one more book? Not sure if he really wants to read another book or wants to prolong bed time? Should […]
