My son's little buddies

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
C. S. Lewis

There is nothing  like friendship between children.  It's beautiful and endearing to witness.  As moms, we are so blessed in so many ways that somehow it is hard to keep track. The miracle of birth and every milestone your child has are easy to recognize and keep memories of but have you taken the time to stop and look at him or her make friendships, learn empathy, see what makes them laugh, etc.

Sharing with Jo-jo

Hugging Asden

plotting their next escapade by the window

Having conversations and playtime

Sharing cake

Copying each other

Like I said, we are so blessed to experience this all over again. Now I get the smiling face on my mom's face, now I understand.

It's been a while.

Much has happened since my last post.  It seems that when life gets complicated I find it hard to keep up with my posts, for this I apologize.  But sincerely, when my familly needs my full attention I find it very hard to set aside "me" time to sit and write. Life is life and those that have families understand.
Carr caught a stomach virus for the first time.  Like all childhood sickness, it came at night around 4:30 am and it did not let up until 3pm the next day.  I took Carr to the pediatrician and she confirmed that it was a stomach virus.  Just imagine 5 days before going on vacation!  Two days later Chip caught a cold and it followed him on vacation and back.  Geesh, we have had a hard two weeks health wise.  On the positive side, as I mentioned before, we went on vacation. That will be an upcoming post, I have some great pictures.
Back to being sick, it absolutely sucks.  I haven't been sick since I was pregnant and I had forgotten how miserable it was.  The reason for this post is primarily to recommend that everyone should take vitamins especially vitamin D, when you feel that you are about to get sick you should take emergen-C 3 times a day and grapefruitseed extract.  You'll ask how is it that I got sick, easy both my men were sick and I just lost myself to them, taking care of them and preparing to go on vacation. But sincerely, I could be much worse, I only have mild simtoms.  Have a healthy winter!

Little boys and SuperHeroes

It is funny how having a son has gained me access to the inner sanctum that is a man's mind, at least this is what I wish.  When they say that men are from Mars and women are from Venus...they weren't kidding.  It was absolutely obvious the difference between us at a year and a half.  My little boy can't sit still, this is physically impossible for him unless he is sick.  No matter how hard I tried to deviate this, he discovered Pow-pows, and even without having one (I refused to buy for the longest time), creativity has lent a hand and Lego's or sticks have accomplished the job. My little warrior loves his pow-pows and ninja swords.  He loves running around fighting and battling with our cats. And please let us not forget...the most important...

Super Heroes

Yes, my son is quite obsessed with them.  His all time favorite, for right now are Spidey, Batman, Iron man and Captain America. 

Spider man was Carr's first secret identity!

When choosing your gear, you must be very careful. 

He likes to pose when in costume, incredible!
