Lately my little Gia has been fascinated by birds. She loves pointing them out every time she sees one and, if she can, she’ll chase them too! A couple of days ago when a couple of pigeons flew away I explained to her that they’ve gone home to their nido. “La casa de los pájaros se llama nido,” I told her. The next day we see some birds flying away and she says, “Mira mami, los pájaros van a su nido!” (Look mami, the birds are going to their home!) What a memory this one has – maybe that’s normal for a 2 yr old, but nevertheless it makes me so happy since my memory seems to get worse every day!
Of course when I saw this crafty little snack I knew Gia would love it! This will be our little project when she gets home from pre-school today. We’ll post pictures later.
Little Bianca is teething. Poor thing is a baba factory! Slober production is in full force. She can’t keep her fingers out of her mouth, unless of course she’s found something else to rub on her gums like a wood block or her sister’s plastic Dora doll (no small pieces to choke on, don’t worry mom!). She’s also pseudo-crawling – she pulls/pushes herself on the floor like nobody’s business. In short, she’s a handful right now. I keep saying that those teeth are coming any minute now, but my husband thinks I’ll be saying that for another couple of months.
My question to you today is: what are your techniques for getting through is period? I went through this a couple of years ago with Gia, but I don’t remember anything in particular that really helped. Is there a particular product you really love?
I’ve been wanting to start a blog for some time now but I don’t want this to be just any blog. I really hope this can be an opportunity for a conversation, a chance to meet new people, a way to share advice…basically I hope this turns into much more than just a boring blog about how hard it is to raise two kids and what I cooked for dinner last night! There will be plenty of time for that too 🙂
So I’m asking you to create this blog with me! Of course I can’t wait to hear about your kids (and hopefully how much they love The Good Night Show) but I also want to hear your advice and your experiences and if you have a question…ask it! Maybe I can help or someone else in our little community can. I especially hope we can help each other get through this thing called life with a big smile on our faces!
I’ll tell you a little about myself and don’t be shy…you tell me a little about yourself too!
First and foremost I’m mama to 2 little girls – Gia 2 1/2 and Bianca 7 months, wife and partner to Poncho for almost 15 years, and actress/host of The Good Night Show on Sprout. It’s quite an adventure trying to keep up with these 2 while attempting to get settled in to a new home! One of my favorite things in the world is hearing my girls laugh so hard they start to hiccup! My second favorite is probably when they both nap at the same time!! LOL! A few more things you should know: I try not to take myself too seriously, I love to find the humor in all things, I procrastinate too much, and I have a terrible memory. OK there’s so much more to share, but if I said it all now there wouldn’t be anything to blog about tomorrow (or next week. Remember what I said about procrastinating!)
