Happy Birthday Munchkin


My sweet baby boy has been saying he’s 4 years old since he was 2. He wanted to be like his brother, so 4 he has been.

This year though, he finally growing. He said he’s going to be 5! He’s saying good-bye to 4 and although, I am so proud that he’s growing and healthy, I am sad to say goodbye to his babyness. 

This is my angel face, his last day being 4.  I call him my Angel Face because he truly has a beautiful smile, and in natural light, his eyes are the spakliest blue. When I look at his face when he’s laughing, it fills my heart with pure joy and love.

I told him that instead of me planning his birthday, that he could plan it, himself. So, of course he picked a black panther birthday theme, which no one here has, but we are making it happen. 

He requested vinegar chips, chocolate cake with peanut butter filling with chocolate frosting, guacamole, pizza and to watch a movie with popcorn. I almost forgot, chocolate milk. He requested all his favorites so he can share it with his cousins. 

He had one more which he asked ever so sweetly, if we could please take him to Bounce Magic so he can bounce. 

Luckily, we are able to do this for him, so he shall get it. He will turn 5 at 5:02 this morning as you can see, I am trying to delay his not being 4 anymore. I hope I never forget this time in his life, unfortunately, I know I can’t hold on to every detail, but I will try for as long as I can.

Still, I want to wish my Angel Face a sweet 5th birthday… May he grow up healthy and full of love. I am so lucky to be his mommy! 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY!

9 Months


Time flies when you area mom. Except, I thought it was Tuesday since Saturday. I kept thinking the boys had Ninja Warrior class. 

Anyway, sharing my pieces of heacen, here’s are my 3 little monkeys.

My caramel bon bon…


My vanilla custard…

And My Cookie… Eating a cracker (9 months today).

Oh the sweetness in my life!

Lose Tooth!


“Daddy, my tooth hurts a little bit!” my big guy said. Daddy inspected it and said…

“You have a lose tooth!”

I had to look for myself and sure enough…lose tooth.

Cue the waterworks.

In spite of his beautiful smirk due to excitement, I hid behind the book I was reading and let the pages soak up the tears.

I never thought I would be so emotional about it, but I guess It’s one of those milestones right before first grade. It’s just too much. 

My baby is growing up every day…and I just need to soak it in… I did what I do best and took a photo.

After all, once the teeth start going, that smile will never be the same.

I love my baby!

Too Serious


The boys went to spend the day with the grandparents. Not knowing what to do with myself, I went to Coffee Culture and ordered a turkey sandwich and a cappuccino. I literally sat there thinking “what should I do now?”

I figured I’d buy myself slippers since I got rid of all of my beat up old ones…

I usually buy $20 ones, but they don’t last me very long, so I went big and bought Uggs…crap… It just dawned on me that these may not be synthetic. I don’t like buying anything made with animals… Sigh…anyway, I bought them because my feet are always freezing and I hate winter, so I needed something sturdy and warm.

I then went to Toys R Us.. To buy baby’s first outfit, but the price put me off I don’t think $40 should be spent on a onesie. I bought him bandana bibs… So cute and pacifiers… Idk why, my kids never used them. But then I decided to buy my boys Baymax lunch boxes, with Minion soup thermos.

Home I went to meet Babe…I swept leaves while he was on the phone, then I sewed a bag and tidied the laundry while he played his game. We watched 2 episodes of Grimm, he went to bed and I worked on some more laundry.

Now, I am taking a break… The boys decided they wanted to spend the night and so far.. They feel asleep… I feel so weird without them here, I deeply dislike it, but their grandparents should get to enjoy them too… I could cry though.

While folding laundry, I kept thinking how stern we are with our boys. How we are always busy doing something. How we never have enough time to have some fun. How there’s always too much to do… How something is always more important… And how all of it needs to stop…I need to relax, take a deep breath and just have fun… Even with the chores… Make them fun and make them a time to bond and to listen to the boys. Time is passing us by and one day, my boys won’t want my attention anymore. I don’t want to regret anything. I don’t want to miss out.

I want to create memories… I need to make them my priority because they are more valuable to me than anything else. I love my sons with all of my heart and I need to show them more. I need to see them smile more…

Catch Up…


Blogging at the cottage is quite daunting, you have to stay in the corner trying not to roam and wait ten minutes for the post to load while standing on one foot hanging out the window to get one bar… Lol okay, that was dramatic, but it is a pain. We stayed another night there and then went home for a Labor Day Party at my sister in-laws. That was alright.

One of my cousins is due a couple of weeks after me and she had the same first name for a baby girl… Lucky for me, her husband hates the name. And I sorry of snapped at him after he kept bashing the name. Lol assuming I am going to have a girl. But I let them know I am going to stick to it whether they use it or not, because it takes alot for Babe and I to agree on names.

Today, was the boys first day of Homeschooling (officially).

So it meant field trip to the Science Museum (after some work). Daddy took a half of day off at work to join the fun and the grandparents tagged along.

Seriously, I don’t know who had more fun, us or the boys? I actually got to color without getting too dizzy…

Improvement guys! Happy dance! I’m so excited, I texted a picture to my mommy and told her I made it for her😁. It felt really good.

Then we went to BRITISH CHIPPIES!!! A British restaurant which reminded me of my good friend Blondeusk. They had Yorkshire pies… I had a chicken and mushroom pie, Babe had fish and chips and the boys had just chips. We tried some British sodas. Tizen and Ribena… Ribena was good, Tizen was more of an acquired taste, but I still finished it. Or was it the other way around? I don’t remember.

We then went to a park where my husband stopped a man from beating his 5 year old grandson. But the boys had fun. Came home, watched a movie, tubbies, ate dinner, did a reading lesson with the boys. Read them bible stories. Talked about the importance of being kind to everyone, and here I am.

We had a great day minus the abuser guy. I just pray for this little boy and I hope that his mother finds out so that it doesn’t happen again. And that Child Protective Services catches up with the child.

Sweet Dreams my friends, lots of love,
Jahaira

Sweet Victory


The boys, because of my laziness have been sleeping in our room, but we made a deal with the boys. Some days they can sleep with us, some days not.

Last night, they went to bed without a fuss. I read them two chapters of Captain America and off they went. I didn’t have to wait for them to fall asleep.

They woke up once to go potty, but other than that…

That’s them right now at 6am. Did I forget to mention that the dog sleeps with them too? Not only is it cute, but awesome! Cole keeps me up all night, with his tossing and turning.

So I can safely say that’s a win-win and that I have that one figured out! Woot-woot! Point for mommy!
