Sleeping through the Night!

The post title speaks for itself.  Last night was night #4 where my lil Meatball slept through the night.  This was more than I could ask for since he slept from 8 pm until 5:45 am.  Let's pray for a 5th night like this!!!!!!!!

Two Year Olds = Migraines

Why is it that my 2 year old wakes up every Saturday with the appetite of King Kong, however nothing satisfies her.  I awake to the sound of "Mommy I want food".  Ok no problem, no sooner do I make her beloves eggs and bacon and put it in front of her do I hear, "Nooooooooooooooooo (in a super whiny voice) I want cereal.  Ok fine, as soon as I make the cereal I then hear,  "Noooooooooooo (now with tears) I don't like cereal.  I want steak." Steak???  WTH.  What 2 year old wants steak for breakfast.  Sooooooooooo I kindly tell my picky princess "Mommy doesn't have steak but lets have" ...... (Here's the part where I'm now cut off by a blood-curling scream begging for the damn steak).  So mommy of course trying to avoid a migraine makes a toddler size steak.....only to hear "Can I have cereal now?"

Bring on the Excedrin Migraine!

I guess Mommy is gonna have steak for breakfast along with her migraine!

Barista Kids (Montclair, NJ)

To anyone in the Montclair, NJ or surrounding areas I found a great site that shows upcoming events for kids in the area.  Some cost and some are free.  It's a great way to meet other moms and kids for playdates or if you are just looking to get your kids some "going out" time.  The link below will show you tons of things everyday for the next 3 months!!!

Five Question Friday #1

So this is my first post participating Five Question Friday.....I hope Im doing this right (the linking and all)...here goes:

1. Did you pass your driver's test on the first try?


Oh god no! I failed the first 2 times and the 3rd time I only passed because the sicko instructor was making some real pervacious comments and I figured WTH ....I might as well flirt back and help my self pass dammit.....and it worked !!  And just a word to that instructor: SICK WIERDO!!!

2. What is your most embarrassing moment?

I was a freshmen in high school and all the seniors were coming down the stairs behind me which made me super nervous and I tripped and fell down like 10 steps in front of all of them.  Not to mention all my books and papers went flying everywhere and everyone was laughing hysterically.  Im even embarassed just writing that!

3. What TV show would you like to be on- Oprah, Biggest Loser, or What Not to Wear?

Im gonna go with Oprah on this one because Biggest Loser would mean Im fat......and I'm a shopaholic and love fashion so if I was on What Not to Wear that would be my worst nightmare!

4. Would you ever get plastic surgery and what kind?

Yes!!! and what kind u ask....let's see....all of the above!!! Just kidding.....once my child bearing days are over I'm going to decide that. I would love some big boobies....but for now my 34b's will do .....I think Im more of a tummy tuck kind of gal although I have been very lucky to keep it lookin very close to my pre-baby days.  I really do have one thing I dislike which is my chin....its super pointy and I'm very self conscious about profile pics.....I think it looks like the man in the moon and would love to shave a bit off the end of it!

5. What are your favorite jeans to wear?

I have yet to find a pair within my budget .....seems to be the ones that fit the best cost the most! I love Vigoss jeans.  Seven jeans rock too! But I'm more of a trouser kind of chick or even some leggings ....at least that's the best thing for me so far.

Circumcision Complications

This was a post meant for a few weeks ago but I'm just now getting around to it.  I'm curios to know if anyone else has had this problem with their son's.....since I'm beginning to think the whole "boys are so much easier" line is a crock!

Ever since the beginning of my pregnancy we've been up an down on the whole circ issue.  At first we said no way unneccessary but after tons of pressure from family and friends making us feel bad ....we relented and on the last day of our hospital stay we went through with the circumcision...........a decision we both regret now. 

All they ever said was put vaseline on it to keep his skin from sticking to his diaper so that's what we did.  Then about a month and a half ago i noticed a small band of tissue about a half of a centimeter wide thats connecting the head of his penis to the shaft of it.  We went to see a pediatric urologist who said its a penile adhesion which can either be cut again (poor baby) or it can resolve with a prescription cream and some gentle pulling daily. 

This isn't the worst part of the whole thing.  During my lil man's exam ....he got a little ...eeeeerrrrr....."excited" and the doctor noticed the curve upward (like a banana) and told me this is caused from the circ not taking enough skin underneath.  Even though cosmetic he said it's better to fix this.  So now when he's about 9 months he will have to have the circ re-done...this time under anesthesia and they will check the adhesion to possibly open that up too. 

I feel so bad as a mama that my lil guys man parts have to undergo this crap and that I should've never went through with the circumcision in the first place.  Boys are so not easier!!!!!!!!!

Any advice about this would help ....TIA

My Day Off - Spent beeing busy Of Course

I took today off work to finally go to my 6 week post baby checkup (at almost 11 weeks post baby...lol). Everything went great aside from the fact that finding out the Mirena I've sooooooo wanted is going to most likely cost an arm and a leg......so for now I'm stuck using the old Nuva Ring like before.  Yes ....that same Nuva Ring that I was using when I got pregnant with my lil guy ...WTF ....Just my luck!  On top of that I haven't even had a period yet so I can't start the good ol' ring til then.  Hopefully I wont get knocked up before then!

So now I'm home.  Babies are at Nursery School and I would think this would be the perfect oppotunity for some much needed nap time.....only my house is a disaster and my refrigerator is bare.  So much for a day off....I probably would've done less at work ..wink wink!

Baby Loves Disco

My friend just sent me this on Facebook a few minutes ago and I thought I would share it.  This is a place you can bring your kids and they can dance and play and do all kinds of activities and at the same time mommy gets to have a drink and get a mani....while never leaving jr's side :)  Apparently they used to go all over the US but now are trying 2 times a month in the New York area.  Check out the link below for the one coming up this Saturday in NJ!!!!

Changing Name and Layout

If you are noticing now I have just changed the name and layout of my blog. I switched to a simple layout for now as I am going to have a new one made just for me. In the meantime something simple is probably best.

I have also decided to change the name of the blog to "One, Two, Buckle my Shoe", since that is my daughters favorite song at the moment.

Back in the Saddle :)

I think 2010 is going to be a great year for our little family....daycare is under control ....and things are going great for Mami & Papi after a very rocky 2009. I really hope to get my bow/clippie business under way after a hiatus due to a hectic pregnancy. I do have some new spring bows and clippies I'm working on that I will post pics of very soon.

2010 has great things in store!!!

The Mondays!!!

Today could not have gotten off to a worse start!!! It was supposed to be Sofia and Antonio's first day at their new Nursery School so i had my alarm set for 5 am ...since now i have to get 2 babies ready plus make her breakfast (before she ate at her old school). Won't ya know my darn alarm was on silent and i woke up at 7:15................grrrrrrrr..........they were supposed to be there at 7!!!!

So i rush like a mad woman and didnt even get a picture taken of their first day .....I could kick myself for that....plus Sofia was so excited about the playgoround outside that she threw a fit when we got inside because she wanted to go on the slide.

I can say that i did really enjoy packing her first lunch (Bento style of course) with her favorite PB&J in the shape of a daisy .....maybe tommorrow i can manage a pic of that!!!!

So after all the hustle and bustle of getting them in the new school ....i get to work and come to find out this restaurant i ate at (6 hrs away of course) over the weekend charged someone elses meal to my credit card.......Yay can't wait to deal with this long distance mess tonight!!

I guess this is a real case of the Mondays!!!!!!! LOL

Gone and Back again in 1 week

So this past week was probably one of the best and worst for me. Daddy and i had a bit of a daycare situation and no answer in sight before my maternity leave was over. Because of this Fifi had to go to my Mom's house in PA and my precious lil man had to go to his Aunties house in Boston ....both for an estimated 6 weeks. Thankfully though i was able to get that under control and bring my babies home. The worst thing is having to say goodbye to a newborn and also having a 2.5 year old telling you not to leave......ugh talk about feeling like the worst mother. At least i have both my babies back home with me ...YAY!!!!

2 month checkup stats

So my lil man had his 2 month checkup today and got 3 shots (tear).........and I cannot believe what a lil porker he is. According to his pediatrician he is borderline obese and overweight. He is now 12.5 lbs and 23 inches long...OMG!!!!! She told us not to feed him anymore than we are already giving him....Imagine that......after struggling with Fifi not eating and being so tiny ....now this one is huge. I guess every kid really is different!!! I still love my lil boy chunky or not ...to me he is gorgeous :)


Photobucket

Aside from his nickname "Tico" given to him by his sister ..... (tico is the squirrel from Dora)......he has also earned the nickname "Uvita" or "La Uva".....courtesy of Titi Ali. For anyone who doesn't speak Spanish ....Uvita...or La Uva is a "little grape"......HAHAHAHAHAH I guess that nickname suits my lil round guy :)
