iPad craziness!

I am going crazy with my iPad.  Wait.  Let me re-phrase that:  My kids are going CRAZY over the iPad!  If I thought that it was bad before, I don’t know what it is about this summer vacation that has them going insane with this go-forsaken gadget! When I take away the iPad the next thing they ask for is my phone!  I am 1 octave shy of screaming NO!!!  Go out and play!  Play with the darn toys that {Read More}

It’s like… magic!

Where do all the spoons and forks go?  It’s like the flippen socks! We are left with 5 forks and 5 spoons, exactly.  Can you believe that? I mean, I normally clear the table after dinner,  so I can’t even blame the kids!   Please tell me this happens at your house, too! If I ever invite you over for sinigang or adobo, just remember… It’s BYOS&F!

They just don’t make them the way they used to…

Seriously?  Do I change the kid or the shoe brand? I don’t know what to think?  This is my 7 year old’s shoe. Vans, to say the least. Either shoe companies need to make shoes “kid” tough, including skateboard, scooter and bike friendly, or I need to send the kid out in chanclas. Sheesh!

You’re so vain, mija!

I am not a vain person.  I hardly wear makeup and I can go a long time without buying clothes. I think during my youth, I never really did go after brand name items.  I was happy with what I had and where it was bought. My nena on the other hand, is getting a little vain.  She’s only 5 years old! We recently paid a visit to the beauty salon where she had a hair cut. Oh BOY did {Read More}

Trying to snap out of it…

I am so sorry for the lack in posting.  Besides traveling, we have been dealing with my husband’s poor health. I’ve written here before about not having any health insurance. Unfortunately, this past weekend my husband had to visit the ER.  I took my husband to visit a county hospital in L.A. and we were denied full services because we live in another county. I griped a little on FB about seeing with my two eyes a man who walked {Read More}

Fisher-Price and Thoughts of a Mommy

Do you remember the year that Fisher-Price entered your home?  It was 1998 for us.  This is the year the Fisher-Price made a grand entrance into our home with the birth of my first child.  Fast forward to 2012, and I am proud to say that Fisher-Price is still present in my home and now on the blog. I am an official Fisher-Price Play Ambassador.  This is really cool. I feel like I know the company since I have been {Read More}
