Friday is now my favorite day!

"I love fridays! " now I understand the phrase much more. I've been a stay at home mom for almost six years now. It is not easy having three girls but to see them happy, growing up so smart and growing up loving me more and more,it is worth it! Today is friday and I want to let you know that I survived my eldest's first week as first grader.Yehey! Waking up 6:45 am to get her and everything ready,walking her to school and doing my 30 minute run afterwards.It helped that there are no homeworks yet,I'm sure it'll be different when it starts coming. Kindergarten days were different,she was in an 11:15-2:30 class. So she and I could stay up late at night and sleep in till 9 am usually. This whole week was full of struggles. From putting her to sleep earlier than 10 pm,what snacks she want to bring to school so she won't take them back home untouched,what clothes to wear and her 'eating slow like a snail' in the morning. Oh boy,I love her but sometimes I wish I have a magic wand and just say bibidi-babidi-boo. And everything falls into pieces.

I'm excited for my Elle,I expect so many things.I would like to see her develop socially and be a leader not a follower and academically of course, to love Math as much as I love it when I was still in school. To excell more in reading,cause she tends to get lazy half the time. To be able to balance playing and studying because now she only wants to play and play all day. I would also love to see her pick up her violin without us forcing her to do it. To instill in her the love of music,the respect and love for others no matter how different they are. I'm just glad that this class she is in right now is more diverse,I wouldn't want her to come home one day ( or again )and start asking me why I am different and why my skin is brown unlike other moms and that of her firends.
I am also excited to meet new parents,that this time I promise my self to learn how to say Hello and socialize and get to meet other parents,who knows I might end up having new friends. I need to,it's for my daughters' sake.Hers and my growth and development,afterall It's a small world.

First day as First grader

She'll be six next month,how time flies like an arrow they say,We now have a first grader. She was so excited,went to bed early last night without fighting us. This morning was a little different story because she eats very slow,usually takes 30 minutes for one little piece of french toast.So instead of walking her to school,we we're force to wake up her sisters so we all could go drive her to school.Why? cause I am not driving till now. and I don't think I will ,ever! It was warm today,I walked to school to pick her up. I do think she had fun,four of her former kindergarten classmates are in her class. Her bff's were not though,She was sad the first time she found out that she won't be with them but was excited when I told her crush is on the same class and she will get to meet new ones. I wish it's the same thing with me,socializing and making new friends are not my specialty. Aside from one little thing,oh yeah her nose bled on the first day,everythng went well. Looking forward to new playdates,birthday parties and school socials with my babydoll!

Siesta Time? Music time!

Just one of those afternoons Im missing back siesta time after lunch with Nora Jones on the background and easy listening tunes on my radio. I haven't done this in a long time. loving it so far!Hubby is out with Elle and the two girls are quietly playing in their room together. I'll be damn,it doesnt happen all the time. So here we go turn the music loud baby! Moments like these make me miss my fm-radio days so much and pretty soon I will find myself shutting the music off because the nostalgic feel is killing me. I can't believe that something I got tired of doing back then, gives me this feeling of loneliness. That right now i'm wishing i'll be given another chance to do again,here, there or somewhere. I miss my 1 o'clock time slot,Tracy Chapman all the way. Music back then gives me the high.It helped me go through so many pains,broken hearts and failed expectations. Music was my escape, our FM booth was my cave,the listeners were my joy! The likes of Allure,Tony Braxtons,Nora Jones are my best pals. uh oh, time to turn my background music off ...errr should I just change it to a more upbeat songs? cool!

I love comments, I do I do!!!
