You Never Said Not to Look

Posted on October 31, 2008 - Filed Under Kids | 4 Comments

This morning, I was really, really, really overtired from staying up until 2 am to finish up some articles. Dorian was up at 5 and I barely staggered out of bed to make him tea and put on a movie.
“Don`t touch the sugar.” I said, groggily and tumbled back into bed. See, we have [...]

First Baby Meme

Posted on October 29, 2008 - Filed Under Mom Stuff | 1 Comment

I grabbed this from Deb. It`s a meme about your firstborn.
1. Were you married at the time? No
2. What were your reactions when you found out you were pregnant? Sad and depressed, a little bit hopeful. I`d just gone through 3 miscarriages in little over a year and figured this one didn`t have a chance.
3. [...]

Just Me and My Boys Out On the Town

Posted on October 27, 2008 - Filed Under Guatemala, Kids, Mom Stuff | 6 Comments

Yesterday marked the first ever time that I took the boys to Antigua on my own. That might not sound like a big deal, but for me, it was. I mean, in 17 months, I hadn`t tried it out of fear of what would happen! I`ve taken each kid on his own, but never both [...]

Technical Difficulties

Posted on October 24, 2008 - Filed Under Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Argh, I`ve been trying to get photos of the Christmas ornaments up for my winners and can`t. The cord for my camera seems to have given up the ghost and isn`t recognized by the computer. sigh.
Good thing I chose Christmas ornaments instead of Halloween stuff, huh?
I`m going to see if I can find [...]

Posted on October 23, 2008 - Filed Under Body, Kids, Simple Life | 6 Comments

So, yesterday I hinted at Dante having an accident. Well, three out of four people have been bleeding around here in the past three days, so I`ll just start at the beginning. sigh.
Day One: Dorian
Dorian was out playing with his cousin Zanelle the other day. I usually just peek out at them from time to [...]

I didn`t have internet most of the day here and Dante had an accident in the morning which required a lot of useless [...]

Love`s True Kiss

Posted on October 18, 2008 - Filed Under Fun, Kids | 5 Comments

Anyone who has ever seen Enchanted knows the power of Love`s True Kiss. It`s pretty potent! You can even bring someone back to the dead (if you kiss them before midnight, that is) after they`ve foolishly bitten into a poison apple offered by an old hag.
Dorian loves this movie and can sing along with many [...]

Trying Out Occupations

Posted on October 17, 2008 - Filed Under Kids | 4 Comments

The other day, Dorian gave the life of a singer a try. And the following afternoon, Dante decided to see what it was like to be a hairdresser. Or a barber, if you`re paranoid about your children becoming gay, like Irving is.

Dorian was, of course, a willing participant . . . maybe he [...]

Latin American Idol . . . Dorian Style!

Posted on October 16, 2008 - Filed Under Kids | 3 Comments

Dorian really loves watching American Idol. He just loves listening to music and has since he was tiny. He was a very fussy baby and never let me get anything done until I discovered that turning on music calmed him right down. Any music would do, but he particularly liked hip hop as a baby. [...]
