valentines day idea

I was trying to think of a cute idea for valentines day for my husband.
I like to surprise him, and also do stuff for him on this month of love.
So a trip to the dollar store it was!
and I was lucky enough to find these awesome little heart boxes.
Perfect size to put your husbands or wives favorite treat! and i added little bible verses of love or uplifting ones.
I have 14 boxes one for each day till valentines day.

I would look in your local Dollar Tree and see if you can find these boxes.
Hide them in your husbands backpack, suite case, in his jacket before work.

Being a mom of 1

I've read articles latley of only having one child. the pros and cons. ALL THAT JAZZZZZZ.
Its annoying.
Seriously this is one of the biggest decisions I've ever made.
This is why i wished for twins. One and done. We would have had no choice but to DEAL with 2 babies.
Instead now we know the taste of having children, and well honestly we are just not prepared to handle another one.
My hubs and I. We just aren't
there are moments of weakness, of sibiling love scenes from other parents but then i dont know. I doubt myself. I get frazzled easily, I wish I could calm my child down when he has a tantrum, i wish he wasn't growing up so fast which makes the decision of having another hard, cause time is ticking, cause if you dont have another baby soon before he turns 3 then the age gap is too much. blah . blah. blah.

Then i think, what if my child was an only child? would that be the END of the world?
I get the "oh he'll be so lonely", and i freak out.
Me and my sister are 9 years apart. and that is a HUGE age gap. I never really had a "sister" as a child, now we are closer, but she's 15 and i'm 24.

I don't know. I feel like I need to make a decision about more children soon, but I know im not ready.

I've been lucky so far.

I have been lucky so far that Andrew hasn't been "hurt" badly.
Of course he has fallen, hurt his head, cried, all the "normal" stuff, but nothing serious... until new years eve.
It was a new years eve/parents 25th anniversary party.
My parents had gotten a hotel room for the night and they had rented a banquet room in the actual hotel.
All of us were busy in the room getting ready, andrew of course was running around just being himself.
Then my dad took out the iron to iron his clothes and he left it on on the side tables of the hotel room.
Then we all screamed with we saw andrew go touch the hot iron.
I freaked out.
I started crying and hugging him, I am horrible at dealing with situations like this.
Finally i grabbed him and put his hands under cold water, then some ice.
I didn't want to even see his hands. I couldn't.
Meanwhile we were all freaking out, everyone was waiting for my parents cause they were renewing their vows, my husband was their minister... anyways it was crazy.
I felt the pain.
Those tears that I know I will shed more of as my child grows.
It made me value even MORE my mom and dad.
I feel like I haven't caused them many tears, but the ones I have I understand them 100% now.
But my boy, he was strong
We wrapped his hands up with some ointment and bandage and a sock so he wouldn't be sucking on his finger *he's teething*.
The next morning he woke up like nothing had happened. It was sensitive but he wasn't whinny or crying.
I burned my 3 fingers once in college on my flat iron and i was a BIG BABY for like 2 weeks.
Meanwhile it blistered and now its all better.
So i'll be way more vigilant  and watching over him more! obviously not letting anything hot that attracts his curiosity

Back from a long break~

it was nice to be in chicago this christmas, as in last one we were in orlando and yes my parents came down to be with us but there is nothing like being with all my family.
We celebrate the 24th with opening of presents at 12 naturally the baby was sleeping, so he would have a traditional christmas in the morning.
He got a few presents and a nice easel my mom got him for christmas! :)
I have to admit im happy to be back home!
