I made a tough decision couple weeks ago to just to take Matilda with me on a trip and leave Milo at home with my husband. EEK. It was a hard decision since I have never left my Milo, except when I went to give birth to Matilda. The idea came about awhile ago but I never actually thought too much about it because I was scared to make the decision because I didn’t want to leave Milo behind. But I am doing it. It’s really the best time since both the kids have no doctor appointments for the next month (which is quiet rare) and Matilda is still young so her ticket for international flight is only 10% of my ticket (she does not get her own seat). I’ve done it with Milo twice before he turned 2 years old and I would like to do the same with Matilda. Everyday I think about how much I am going to miss my Milo and everyday I have to remind myself that I am actually doing it. I am totally lame for thinking so much about this. I know it will be okay once I am on the trip because he would have a great time with my hubby, but it’s just the actual part of getting there and doing it is hard. Wish me luck and I will tell you guys all about it after my journey!

P.S. My computer has been very moody for the past weeks and I think its slowly dying, so, I am going to have to visit the Apple store when I return. The question is, do I want another desktop or a laptop?


I started to appreciate my mom even more as I became a mother myself. Each and everyday of motherhood, I find new things, new feelings and new appreciation for being a mom in which I translate them to my deep appreciation for my mom. I truly understand how my mom feels and what she has done for me and I can honestly say that I am more than grateful for her and I am also very grateful that I can be a mom as well to my wonderful children. As much as you describe to others how it feels to be a mom and as great as you are with words, I don’t think you can ever know how it really feels until you are a mom yourself. It is the most powerful thing ever. I am a mom and my mom is my mom and I have the best feeling when my mom is around because she is MY mom and always will be. I want my mom to stay with me forever and I want all moms to stay with their kids forever. I want my kids to know that I will be by their side forever. Happy Mother’s Day to you, to my mom, and to my grandmothers and my mother-in-law that I will never forget.


I was at Early Start baby class yesterday with Matilda and during parents group, the nurse shared with us this new site she was informed about called Ear Community. It is a very in depth site about all kinds of hearing loss and more. You really should check it out. Pass it along to grandparents, babysitters, nannies, teachers and friends so they can learn about your child’s needs and more. Spread and share. Thank you Melissa Tumblin for doing this.
