#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!





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) :(
