One Word — Patience

One Word — Patience

  When December 31st came and went, I spent most of my New Year’s day reflecting on many things. GG Rene, a fellow blogger, asked her readers: How do you want to feel in 2013?  So I have been thinking about my feelings. I know that I have been short with the people who I love.  I know that I have been impatient with somethings that they do when I ask them to do it. I know that I have been very hard on myself when learning something new. What I also know is that I don’t like feeling like that.  I don’t like feeling like everything is going to make me come up short with someone. After having a new baby in the family, and really seeing how big Zee is (sometimes a good and bad thing), my expectations have been more than what people around me can do. So this year, I decided to link up to the One Word 365 challenge. The word that I have chosen for myself is Patience. Instead of resolutions, I’m going to focus on one word.  In all that I do for myself and my family, I will focus on being Patient. I know I will get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.  It will just take time. I will have to accept the delays that happen in my life, and learn to be okay with them.  Things happen. I will be more understanding with myself when trying to learn something new and know that it takes more than one nap time to get it. These are just some of the things that...

And Then There Was One

“If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?” ― Milton Berle Today was the first day that Mr. C has gone back to work, and while I was expecting things to be a bit hectic, it actually has been going quite smoothly.  Of course this is me talking at 10:40am and we have yet to reach the hour of doom (aka the countdown to bedtime). I don’t expect everyday to go smoothly, I just know that I will take what I can. One thing that I didn’t expect was to have sensation overload very quickly.  I am at the point that by 3pm I don’t want to be touched by anyone.  Sounds crazy right?  But I know I can’t get that request fulfilled since Zee is extra clingy these days, and LittleZ…well you know he’s a baby. When I had Zee, that feeling didn’t kick in until 5 months, and even then it was short-lived since she was busy learning to roll over, and reach for things.  So hopefully, this will pass soon. So while things are a bit…umm…different, I’m sure that there will be bad days and good days. There is something that I learned from having Zee though: I am the conductor and I set the pace of the day. –Me...

Don’t Want to Miss A Thing

Since my little man was born, I can’t help but think about how Zee was when she was this little. I did my best to capture every moment, and then some. Play as often as I could with her. Also, hold her to me as much as possible. Something deep inside me knew she was not always going to be little, and I wanted to keep as many memories of her as possible. Now that her brother is in the picture, I feel the same way as well. So when this song came on the radio I couldn’t help but tear as I sang along. It’s an old song, but it’s a classic. Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie, that never stopped me from loving the...

Let The River Flow In You

Searching through my iTunes library, I re-found this one song that I purchased when Zee was just a month old.  She has heard this so many times that it became one of her favorites as well. Listening to it, there is beauty and simplicity that is conveyed while Yiruma plays his piano. I want to share with you a song that I just simply love (okay, one of the many songs that I love).  Even though it’s short, it’s a must listen to piece. The artist is Yiruma, and the name of the song is River Flows In You Tell me what do you think about...

Midweek Catch-Up & Swinging On A Star

It’s the middle of the week, and I haven’t written anything since Sunday.  It has been a crazy few days. Not going to bore you with details but Monday Mr. C helped me get more things in order for our new arrival.  Tuesday, I went to my midwife’s appointment–so far everything is good. We are now on weekly appointments until D-day happens–let’s see if we make it to November. Other than that, I have had some classic songs stuck in my head, and been singing them around our home.  So much that I have Zee singing Moon River, and Swinging on A Star. Since I already have Moon River sung by Louis Armstrong, I figured, let me find Swinging on a Star by another artist.  When looking for the song, there are so many slow versions of it, but one that really captured my interest, was one that was done by Spooky and Sue.  Listening to these two is so cute! You’ll be surprised what you find when you start looking for it. Hope everyone is having a good middle of the week.   By the way: What do you think of this version of the...
