I just opened my bag at work and found the piece of buttered bread that Ale put in this morning to protest my leaving #workingmom
Guess who was up at 6am with his toy trumpet and maracas? Hint: A little guy wearing red & black pjs______.
Hi! Yes! The Ergo has been fantastic. Ale is about 20-23lbs and I still can carry him comfortably. He loves jumping in. I use it almost everyday. This may sound silly but I love that it also has a pocket. So if I’m going around the neighborhood i have a place for some cash, keys and phone. In theory you can use it up to about 45lbs and carry the baby on your back. I will try that later when I can tell him how to hop on and off. I love baby wearing! Its so cozy!
It looks like it snowed in my apt Ale takes tissue tears it up into tiny pieces and leaves it all over from the rug to the bathtub #toddler
Why do I still have missing socks? I have my own washer dryer – maybe my little guy is hoarding them somewhere?
Mama! I walked from the corner right to the door of our building. Can I now have the keys?
When I was pregnant I knew without a doubt in my head I was going to have a boy. You could not tell me otherwise. I was happy but I did mourn the fact that I may not have lunch/ shopping dates with my son.
Now as the author of the article mentions, I understand the female brain/ ways much better. I also think that women are just more naturally sensitive and at the end of the day need less direction to learn what is good and bad.
I feel like boys need constant reminders & examples. My job with Ale is to make him a good man that will treat women and others with the utmost respect. So I’m not going to wait until he is a teen to teach him how to cook. I have him now in the kitchen watching me cook. It’s like a cooking show for babies! I have him help me put away the groceries, he throws his clothing in the washing machine. I love that he is right next to me when I vacuum. I give him an extra vacuum tube that has a brush and he is working on the dust behind the chair.
His dad is also a great role model and will teach him housework, kindness and respect. But boys will be boys…
Anyway, I’m hopeful. Only time will tell. I know in my heart I have the best little boy and he will be ok with my love and guidance .
After reading this. I’m going to hold Ale closer. He is 16 months old and cherish each kiss, hug, and sweet smile. I want him to know & remember that we spent so many beautiful days together so when he goes off on his own he will have a solid foundation based in his family.
