Snacks, Grandma-style

Growing up, my mom never let us have anything that contained artificial color in it.  (Not on purpose, anyway). Fast-forward several years and take a look at the Valentine’s Day treat she had ready for the boys: Once she saw their lips and realized these were BLUE raspberry (and not just raspberry-flavored ring pops), she…

Soccer weather!

NICE KICK!

My Little Valentines

Basking in the Bliss!

I received my BlissDom package in the mail today, which means that I have even less time to do the last-minute things I want to do…such as find an outfit that I actually like. The  absolute best part about the package?  My older son’s comment to me when I popped my boys a bag of…

Vocabulary

Every day I hear Yago use a new word.  He talks about anything and everything, and often I wonder if he’ll ever shut up. His latest phrase? “This is freaking me out.” I’m not quite sure where he picked it up, but I think it’s hilarious coming out of his little mouth. It’s just a…

Stopping the clock

Things about the boys today that I’d like to remember forever: –The silly little high-pitched inflection Daryoosh uses when he asks a question or requests confirmation.  I MUST capture this on video before it goes away. –The cooperation that currently takes place between Yago and Daryoosh because I know that there will soon be more…

Toddler Antics

Having Tia Paloma here is wonderful…and not just because the flip camera has become an extension of her hand… It has reminded me, though, that I’m not taking enough video of the kids these days. For example, if Paloma hadn’t taken this video, I would have never have experienced the severe pain of my sides…

Happy Birthday Super Yago!

As you know from my Halloween post, Yago chose our family’s costumes this year.  I was searching my blog for last year’s family to link back and realized that I never posted that blog.  I will eventually have to go back and do a post on last year’s birthday.  Just for fun, here is last…

Picking my battles

With a pushing-the-limits four-year-old and a defiant not-quite-two-year-old, I am definitely picking the battles I want to fight. 1) Wii. I am winning this battle with extra spoils.  I stand firm on no Wii play during the week.  We’ve had this rule in place for so long, that Yago no longer asks to play.  He…
