Why I Like The Pages I Like On Facebook

There are a ton of like pages on facebook these days, ranging from games to prayers for (insert name here). I used to not really follow the prayers for ones but one day I followed Prayers for Tripp. And I followed the journey and cried when he passed. Since then I have been following other pages that are similar. I follow ones that deal with Shaken Baby Syndrome and kids that have diseases that are confided incurable.  I have constantly sat here and read stories on these kids, these little babies and will sob. I constantly wonder how someone could be so cruel to someone so small and so precious.  My hubby has no idea why I read them, he is constantly asking me and I usually always give him the same reason.
So today I am going to share with you my reasons. I think I've narrowed it down enough that I only have 2 main reasons. So here they are.
2) To Remind Myself that sometimes you cant trust the people you thought you could. This one mainly focuses on SBS. In some cases its the person you thought could never hurt your baby, someone who could watch and care for your child almost as much as you could yourself. You trust your family and cant imagine they would ever hurt your baby, but they can, and some do. I try to remind myself of something I learned in my physiology class, over 90% of the time someone is murdered it is by family, its rare that it is someone they do not know.
1) To Be Thankful that I have 2 very happy, very healthy sons. Like every mom there are days I just wanna rip my hair out, days I snap at my oldest and yell at him. But when I get on facebook during his nap time or once he is in bed, I see the post from those pages, from those parents whose baby is sick and fighting for their life. I see how sick the baby is and I imagine how those parents feel and it hurts. I cant imagine even a quarter of what they are going through, but what I feel hurts and I remind myself that I am lucky to have two healthy and happy sons. I am thankful that they are healthy, I am thankful that my oldest loves his brother, and I am so very thankful to have them in my life. 
I read these stories on facebook and I fall in love with these kids. I want them to get better, to get justice, to heal and for them to know there are people who are hoping for the best.

I am a fan of a lot of pages but I am not going to link them all, just a few.

Here are two sites I have found with more life hacks:

Happy Mother's Day!

Posted in ,

Happy Mother's Day everyone!! I hope this is a wonderful day filled with love, just like every other day.

For mothers day,  usually your children write us moms letter that tell us how much they love us and to thanks us for all the things we do. But today I am going to write a letter to my kids.

Dear B and C,

Today I celebrate mother's day because of you, because you came into my life and made me a mother. I am so proud to be called your mommy. I loved you both before I ever met you, before I even knew I was carrying you inside. My heart and soul knew you before you came into this world. Everyday is a new experience and we teach eachother so much.
I am so grateful that I have the two of you in my life. I am so thankful that you two will also have eachother.
There will come a time when you feel you hate me, where you get made at the choices I make, you may even tell me you hate me, but I will always reply with an 'I love you son.' I will mean it with all that I am. I have wanted you both for so long. In your teenage years you will not understand why I made/make the choices I did/do. But when you have children of your own, I know you will finally understand why I did the things I did.
I will always love you both, to the moon and back.

Love,
Your mother always and forever!

Well, its been a while hasn't it? I'm so sorry I have been gone.  A lot has happened. I had another baby, we will call him C, and he is such the cutest thing ever!!

My labor went very well and I was only in labor for about 5 hours. He was born February 3. I love him more than anything. My oldest son, B, just loves being a big brother and loves his brother so much! I could not ask for a better family.

Here is a picture of B and C.

Busy.. Busy.. Busy..

Oops, it seems these last few months have gotten away from me. So, lets just give a small update on my life since my last post(which was how long ago?).

I have moved! It was a long and very painful process. It involved a 3 hour flight alone with a one and a half year old, and bring as much stuff in two suitcases as I possibly could! I did it but I left so much stuff behind.
I moved in with my amazing grandmother and started working for my family literally two days after arriving. My amazing grandmother watched my son until I found a daycare I felt great with(it only took me almost 4 months..). I spent my days at work and my nights with my son.
Finally all my hard work went out the window when my uncle came to me with a house his dad would rent to me.
Four months of being away from my SO he can finally move here and be with his family. My son was having such a hard time without his Daddy, it was VERY heartbreaking some days.
So here we are 6 month later, in our own house!

Oh and did I happen to mention that I'm pregnant with another little boy?! No? Well.. SURPRISE!!!
I'm due Feb 2014!
So while I was doing all of that I was dealing with a pregnancy. Very busy few months for me.

And my son turns 2 soon. Oh how time flies!

yup, Thats my life.

Posted in , , , ,
Well things have been pretty crazy lately, I know its been MONTHS since I last posted anything and I'm so sorry for that. Things have just been too crazy for me to handle and then to blog on top of everything going on, it was just too much.

Things in Chicago where very stressful for me. There was too much drama and stuff, plus being a mommy on top of everything. I have since moved back to my hometown, New Orleans, LA. I now work a full time job on top of being a mommy. Blogging has just be thrown aside.

If I'm not at home taking care of my child, I'm at work or the store. I go to bed shortly after my son does and wake up when he does(630-7 am), get ready, get him ready, go to work, come home, dinner, play time, bath, bed time, and start all over.

i'm not sure when I will be back to blogging. I'm so sorry for anyone who visits and is waiting for a post. I hope to be blogging soon, maybe i'll write something up once a month just to keep active. And hopefully one day I will be blogging a few times a week or something. but we shall see.

Update and Fruit Crazy!

Posted in , , , , ,
So I know I've been very slowly lately with post but to be honest I just haven't had any muse or even felt the need to post. I rarely ever have anything to post about and when I do I'm just too lazy and I keep putting it off. So I'm going to try to get better at posting. Currently its been pretty crappy outside lately, which probably doesn't help with my mood at all. Its all dark and icky and rainy outside. Just not good weather, and it really does mess with my mood.

There have been lots of small arguments going on around the house and people in crappy moods, its just not fun at all.

Last week my fiance and I took our son and his cousin to the Museum of Science and Industry here in Chicago. It was fun, would of been better if our son had had a real nap that day instead of a short 30 minute nap, so he was pretty fussy that day. I did take lots of pics but its so hard to put them on my computer and upload them, I will have to steal my fiancé's computer for a bit to post them. But I'll try to do that this weekend.

I'm currently trying to go back to college, but there just hasn't been any time to go and check it out and apply. I'm not sure if they are opened on Saturday's and when I call no one picks up and no one has yet to call me back, which is kinda annoying and makes me NOT want to go there but what can you do? I want to get my life together, I want to go to school and have a degree, there aren't many colleges to look at here and no one to really say "Hey I go here and its cool," I have my future SIL and the college she goes to is the one I'm trying to go to. My fiance has been working Monday-Friday lately, I can't go alone because I have no clue where I am going or what to do. And if any mom's out there have ever tried to do things for yourself and you have to bring your one year old with you, you know how hard it can be to go alone. Not only that but I will have to take a test and what am I supposed to do with him while I test? LOL. I want to go before May hits, so hopefully he'll have a day off during the week so we can go.

In other news, eating healthy in this family is hard.

I'm gonna be honest with all of you, I do get help from the government, I get LINK(money on a card). I get $360 a month for food(grocery's only). I feed 6-7 people with that money. I am ALWAYS spending over budget because lets me honest, that's not enough for all those people. And no one pitches in for groceries to all and every month my future MIL bitches b.c I spend over. Me and her have a lot of issues and I can't wait to get out.

This family is kinda fruit crazy. I bought a watermelon, 6 big apples, 6 bananas, and a pineapple the other day. In 4 days the bananas, apples and half the watermelon was gone. Now today(7 days later) all that's left is the pineapple because no one has cut it up yet.

I think next time I go to the store I'm just gonna buy 20 apples and 20 bananas since those go the fastest. HAHA! And I only ate half a banana and 1.5 apples(I share with my son). Its crazy!
