Cash found us some new friends again. We met them at the waterfront. The family had just recently moved to the area. He’s in the Navy, and they just came from San Diego.. Two children.. One boy, one girl. They’re 3 and 4, perfect.
The kids hit it off really well and so did us parents. We exchanged numbers. The next day there was the Music Festival going on so we decided to go check it out. I text the girl to let them know we would be down there and if they wanted…….Well they were already planning on coming so it worked perfectly.
We all met up and had a really nice time. I had what would be, mayyyybe my second full beer in about 1.5 years. It was a stout..and it was good.
So anyways, hopefully we all get to meet up again sometime soon. And a thank you to my son for once again providing me with friends:)
We went to the Zoo over Labor Day weekend. It was a lot of fun. Cruz’s first time. Daddy got the greatest picture of Cruz with the elephant, Sweetness.. Captured a picture of what I assume is a wise ol’ Ape…you could see it in his/her eyes.. very cool. There was a Seagull standing watch over some spilled popcorn…and he wasnt moving..of coarse ‘till Cash came around to play a game of chicken with the him.. Cash won.. he flew away. Then there was the Clouded Leopards, the Penguins, and last on the list some Elk. All in all it was a great time.
My personal favorite, underwater
After two looong hard weeks of teething. I knew a tooth had to be coming through at any minute. Momma was right. Three down 17 to go!
I seriously cant get enough of this song. Love the beat, the words, the voices.. Replay..
All the processed junk this lady just got for free.. to feed her family, actually grosses me out:/ Six carts full. Its amazing, but gross.
When Im home alone, and out of nowhere a toy goes off without anyone being around it. Creeps me.. the hell.. out. I feel like this happens to me quite often :/
Carlos asked us to come and meet him for lunch. Littlest buggaboo fell asleep, and so desprately needs it that I can’t wake him. So, I’m in the car with him while Carlos watches Cash play. I’m sad though, I was looking forward to a little adult convo. Oh well, gotta do what’s best for the kid.
I knew it was coming. He’s been on the move like a crazy man. I wasnt really pushing him to roll from back to belly (he had once or twice before, he was actually crawling before rolling back to front, wasnt worried though) because I knew once he got it his mobility would surly take him off the bed. I remember going through this with Cash too. Thats right, family bed with both my boys, luckily not at the same time. We got Cash out of our bed at 14 months.
So anyways, Cruz was taking a nap on Sunday. I had fixed a beautiful medley of fresh veggies from my parents garden and took it onto the patio to get a little sun. I could hear the monitor but felt compelled to check on Cruz after a few minutes. He was fine so I went back outside to finish my food. I got this feeling a few minutes later….I just wanted to come inside. As I did I could hear the faintest cry. I knew what had happened in that instant. He fell. I dropped my veggies and
ran sprinted into the room.
The worst part is I COULDN’T SEE A DAMN THING! Since I had been out in the sun I had sun spots rendering me virtually blind. I yelled for Carlos. I could hear Cruz under his crib (which is right beside our bed doing a lovely job of caring for the cloths I have yet to fold). I went to grab him out, but since I couldnt see I got scared I could hurt him. I jumped up turned on the light and there he was, finally in sight. Snagged the little bug up and gave him a check over. As soon as he was in my arms he stopped crying…good sign. He had not one mark. He was completely fine, THANK THE GOOD LORD!
It was for sure a leaning experience, tough one at that. He now stops when he gets to the edge.
Okay maybe not all you need but it sure does feel good. I just got off the phone with my Mom. Her and my Dad have had Cash at their house for the past couple days. She called to talk about a few things she’s noticed about our little man, and she wanted to talk to me before we were in his presence. About halfway through what she was saying I broke down into tears. Yes! That is my life every..single..day.
There are things I deal with on a daily bases, with Cash, that make me feel like Im going to go completely insane. I feel like almost everyday is such a huge test of patience. Its not only Cash, though, its the baby, the lack of sleep, the all consuming chores, a husband that needs and maybe more importantly deserves more TLC, the loneliness of Motherhood, etc.
Anyways, it just felt good to hear her start off a sentence with, “I can see…” and “I dont know how you do it…?”, (ALL of it not just Cash, he’s really an awesome kid…but a handful none the less). Thank you, Momma. For the validation and reassurance that I am a good Mom. Love you.
