Full House

Our new house has been mostly empty, that is until summer started.

We have a full house that is filled with da boyz and my nieces Alexis, Kris, and Jesyka.  Alexis helps us with getting da boykz to camp and Kris comes over to play, telling secrets, and generally staying up late, whispering in the night.
Lucky for us, Dad and Nina bought a new house, with a swimming pool. We have been swimming every day since. I think I have more fun swimming because after commuting the cool water is a welcomed relief for my sore muscles.  Da boyz are having fun playing with Jesyka too.  Da kidz Mohawk Jesyka’s hair and put goggles on her.


Da misters schedule has become quite hectic, but the best part of the day is when he says, “Scoot over so I can sit next to my wife.”

Full Time

Week number one with da boyz, I wondered how I would get through the week. Infection and all, I was worn out, but I made it. Week two, I wondered how I could squeeze in bike miles. It was easy enough to ride my bike to work since I have to get there anyway.

Our house is full and our grocery bill has sky rocketed. Alexis helps us watch da boyz. My other niece, Kris, visits and helps entertain da boyz. My once clean and spotless home is not so much anymore.

In all the madness, there is sleep. I woke sometime after midnight and before the 5am alarm, and discovered that the mister and I were holding hands in our sleep. It is nights like this that help me get through the week.

I'm thinking my first twitter post should get as much attention as The Pope and Hillary Clinton. 
I'm just sayin', you should follow me.

Super Beautiful

So many things have happened these last couple weeks and I do not know where to start.
By the way I am acting, you would think it is the first niece I have and the first time I have become an aunt; but now I have another niece and she is super beautiful and tremendously precious.  We had a scheduled C-section, which fit perfectly in my schedule, but Jesyka Grace came nine days early.  I say “we” because I was the back up in case Daddy passed out in the delivery room.
The most touching moment was seeing my father hold his tiny grand daughter, minutes after her birth.  Later he shared with me that he thought she was ugly but then he thought she was cute.
The mister and I hosted our family to celebrate my father birthday.  It is a pleasure to have our home filled with the buzz of guests and serve a traditional Mexican dinner. As per my father’s request, he wanted enchiladas made like my mom would have made them.
And… school is over which means that we now have da boyz FULL TIME over the summer.  It is definitely a change in Barbie’s world but I already know I am going to love every minute of it... while pulling out all my grey hair.
