#QuestionADay for Kids

I think I want to get this for Tyler…

I’m finding the #QuestionADay #Challenge to be very therapeutic and great with self realizations.

I look forward to reading the next question and sharing it out loud.

I think it can help Tyler with being able to communicate more efficiently and share his stories written or verbal with me.

Open the lines of communication with your child. That is the only thing that will save the relationship.

Movie Night @Petersen_Museum

Sent in an RSVP for movie night at the Petersen Automotive Museum few weeks back. Cars 2 was screening and I know how much Tyler loves the Cars films.

He was happy about it and it was the perfect way to spend the day. I of course made the family leave right before the end of the movie since I didn’t want to leave with everyone else. Traffic and bottlenecking is irritating.

I wish we had been able to have our wedding here. It would’ve been my ideal place. Too bad it’s so freaking expensive!

One of my favorite childhood memory was when my mommy would sit me in the tub and she would squat beside me and use her little green handcloth/towel pocket thingy and scrub me all over. I would sometimes cry because it was painful but at the end of it, I felt so clean and refreshed.

The best thing about being Korean is that we’ve learned to scrub the right way. If you’ve ever been to a Korean Spa, they have a service where and old person of the same sex will scrub your entire body just like how your Korean mom used to as a kid.

My favorite treatment at a spa, EVER! She/He climbs over over you, above you and in and out through the folds of your skin. Every dead skin is rubbed off and then washed off with warm water.

It’s amazing to see all the crap that comes off your body.

I try to get the treatment done every six months. I should really do it more often, but the hassle to go to a Korean spa isn’t my cup of tea.

In between my scrubs, I have to maintain on my own. I can’t call my mom and ask her to come over to the shower and scrub me. Quite honestly, if I asked, I’m sure she would still do it.

I use DermaDoctor’s Body Scrub. I first got to know this line of products because I wanted to get rid of the little bumps on my upper arm area. I had no idea why I had it but I did some research and found KP Duty, Dermatologist Moisturizing Therapy. After couple weeks of use, my upper arm area was clear of bumps. That’s when I knew that their products were awesome. I started to buy a bunch of their products. I stocked up on the Moisturizing Therapy because the product wasn’t heavy and it was easily transportable and unscented. A little on the pricey side but worth it to get rid of my problem area. (This was YEARS ago).

I also go the antiperspirant, but I never used it much because, well, I am Korean and we don’t have B.O., ever. :P

go get yourself scrubbed by a Korean old person in their intimates at the spa, it will change your life.

Growing Feet

Tyler did not fit into the #Camo Vans I got him. I texted his dad to see what size he was and of course when the shoes arrived, they didn’t fit.

Now I need to get him another pair. The camo ones are great for the future but he needs no shoes now…

He really liked these so hopefully he’ll be happy!

Baby Dilemma

Me: If I decided I didn’t want another baby, would you still be with me?

Bear Baby: Of course.

I knew then, I was marrying my dream man.

I know my wedding will soon be over and I know that I’m not getting any younger.

I’ve been thinking about when I should have my baby and even though there are so many factors, the most important one for me is my convenience.

I’ve been there and done that (with a nanny) so I know exactly how it’s going to go.

I’m still trying to convince Bear Baby that a nanny is necessary.

I’m even having my friends chime in.

The two options are, of course, get pregnant soon after the wedding. Or wait at least a year and get pregnant. Hoping that ‘getting pregnant’ is much easier said than done.

The pros of getting pregnant right away:

Get it over with, still young, chance to have more… I guess that’s it.

The cons to getting pregnant right away:

I’ll be alone, I can prepare my body… that’s all.

The pros and cons of waiting… well, I can’t really think of any reason except that I may be able to plan my pregnancy with a friend.

I always say, being pregnant alone is torture.

I have no reason to wait. I want at least three children and the longer I wait, the better chance of a complication.

I just want to be in a place where I can still work out while I’m carrying. I had a friend who ran half a marathon while six months pregnant! Now that’s something!

I honestly feel like my biggest fear is that I’ll get fat and I won’t have a social life.

Which may be a great thing (not the fat part) since I started my first quarter at Walden University (online) to finish my bachelor’s degree.

Though it won’t help me from now until the day after the wedding.

I still expect some things to change if I do get pregnant. I’d want to be in a house, not an apartment. I need to make more money. I need to get healthy. We need to reevaluate certain things.

My first pregnancy was never planned so this is all new to me. I may not be excited about the wedding but I sure am excited about getting pregnant with the love of my life!

Bad Mother

Every time I want to get Tyler shoes, I have to text my ex-husband for his shoe size. Just recently, he told me Tyler was a size 3, so I got him a size 3. Guess what! It was too big.

He grows uncontrollably and I can’t keep up. It’s crazy how time flies because he’s already starting the 5th grade and soon he won’t let me be in the bathroom when he showers. He already doesn’t want to kiss me in public. :(

NORDSTROM.com has the best Back to School stuff for kids! Although I don’t need to get so much since he’s with me during the weekends, I still want to get him another pair of shoes that will actually fit him!

I’m thinking of getting another pair for Tyler since he currently does not have any shoes to wear. (His old one is too small) :(
