Left alone with a toddler

Day 4 of being alone with the toddler I think she has been gaining superpowers. Today her mess making has been at an all-time high the faster I clean the faster she makes a mess. Here are some observations of life with a toddler alone: – coming back from the swimming pool if you decide…

Boulder is such a funny name for a city

Funny name but awesome place! Instead of a taxi we took a bus for $5 from Denver to Boulder Sunday morning! Best decision ever! They happened to be holding a creek festival with so many fun things happening. Naturally, I had to get my eyebrows threaded at the festival..I dub myself queen of odd things…

Rambling toddlers

So this week I have a conference to attend in Denver Colorado and lucky for me, Zahi and Sophia could join. We got into Denver two days early to explore as much as we can and take advantage of the weekend. Such a fun trip so far. Now let us talk about the flight. 7am…

Shots for baby

Poor little munchkin had her shots and poor daddy had to take her. The worst part of the visit is the blood drawn to test for lead and anemia. No one likes their blood drawn and certainly not a little toddler. Troopers the both of them And because he is such an awesome dad, Zahi…

Mud baby

Since we live in an apartment complex, we do not have a backyard for Sophia to run around in..but we are lucky that our complex has a pool area and a separate courtyard.  I recently bought some sand toys for Sophia so I took her down to play in one of the empty flower beds…

Going through a Learning Spurt

It seems like Sophia is learning things at warp speed..relative to infancy learning I guess. Over the weekend she learned a few things: She climbs up and down a few hundred times in a row..my eyes get tired looking up then down  She found her nose..when you ask her where it is she points to…

Because everyday is mama’s day

Here is my beautiful mom..always making me smile  And here is my own mini…can’t wait to take care of you and be as awesome a mom as my own 

‘Fine’ dining with a toddler

We used to have dinner with a calm and dry child…the terrible twos have hit early and we have a little diva to discipline now: She has no shame taking a bath in public  She demands entertainment while she eats  She makes a mess of the floor…shows no remorse  She covers bad behavior with cheesy…

Eat, read, fold laundry

Everyday is fun with our little chubbs but sometimes (usually past the hour of 11pm), I sit and look back at my day and wonder how it is like Groundhog Day..just repeats tomorrow!  Work  Watch Sophia read anywhere and everywhere  Make today’s dinner then tomorrow’s lunch  Avoid watching basketball And then laundry… 50 first dates…

Security…sa-kurty

Worried about your safety getting to preschool? Hire your pint-sized bodyguard..she can throw some serious shade (pun-loving morning)
