Better late than never...

I know this is the month of crochet but I had to get a little knitting in there...I could not resist. Perhaps I can post a preview now and reveal during the month of August Knitting :)

Crochet me all of July!

A few months back I took a break from my knitting needles and crochet hook. Well that's over. I am back in action and I am loving it. I will not buy another ball of yarn until I am completely done busting my stash. Now that its all organized neatly I am breaking up projects by month. July will be the month of crochet. So far I have been working on nothing but baby items...not for anyone in particular...just baby fever here. Here's what I've been working on...

Game Over

When I woke up this morning, I could not leave early in the morning before she woke up. She's too cute not to hug and kiss and cuddle in the morning. So while I was getting dressed I asked her why she said what she said the day before. Luckily, she is not the type to shy away from any topic and she likes to voice her opinion. It all stemmed from the day before when I raised my voice with her papa. She said she does not like it when I don't speak to him in a nice way. Plain and simple. When it comes to her well-being, I get very passionate about the situation and let my emotions take control. We had a teeny bit of a situation with the sitter and when he told me he did not want to get in the middle of it - I guess I did raise my voice just a tad. This has been a problem in the past and I feel as though I have gotten better about controlling my temper but sometimes it just gets the best of me, especially when its about my little girl. Now time and time again, she is the one to shed light unto my behavior. And yes, it hurts when she confronts me about it but she does it in such a positive way that makes me wonder...whom is teaching whom here... lesson learned. 4yr old - 1. 30yr old - 0. game over. They say you get wiser with age but I think it's the complete opposite.

New found freedom? Or worst heartbreak ever?

Today my pumpkin told me she wants to forget about me. She said she wants me to stay at work longer and not come home after she arrives from school. Where did this come from? All I was doing was putting lotion on her after she had bath time with her dad. So I said you don't really mean that and she said yes. But again she's 5 - what does she know?! At that point I thought I can let this hurt or I can view it in a positive way. Was this my way out? My chance for freedom? She said she wants to spend more time with dad. Well I think I need to give her exactly what she wants, right? Let dad wake up in the middle of the night when she's having a bad dream. Let dad wake up in the morning and get her ready for school. Let him worry about her dinner, bath, and bedtime [evil grin].
And so I will embark in my journey. I think a good way to start this will have to be by leaving for work before everyone wakes up tomorrow.
We will see how long this little game will last.

Anneliese's 5th Birthday!

At the beginning of each year I begin thinking and planning for my pumpkin's birthday in March. Normally anxiety kicks in on or about the end of October. What should the theme be? Nothing in particular but everything about in particular. I start to wonder what she's into nowadays. It seems to have become easier since I can just ask her and she will very well speak her mind; which changes every week. From Ninjago to Hello Kitty to a glow in the dark party to finally deciding upon an American girl or rather my doll and me party. Which is great! I love dolls!! Although she does not know, that the only reason I'm not opposed to the purchase of a new doll more often than not, is because secretly I want them for myself ;) Here are a few little treasures I have been working on for her surprise party!

So I had the iphone and recently upgraded to the galaxy s3. Im torn, I very much like all of the cool features and widgets on the s3 but I am extremely dissapointed with the battery life!!! I do not want tocarry around a charger EVERYWHERE I go. Should I go back to the iphone or stick to this very depressing lack of battery life??

Stop growing!

So Anneliese is now 3...lucky number three. Lately I have been thinking about having another baby. Mostly because every time I look her and realize she's not really a baby anymore - and it's killing me! Seeing her grow up brings tears to my eyes. I just dont want her to grow...really I don't. So how do I stop her from growing? Which then gets me thinking of another. Although, when I look at Anneliese I feel as though I love her so much that I am afraid of sharing that love. She is my all and I'm not sure I'm ready to share my time between her and someone else. I guess I'm still young, somewhat, lol, so I've got some time. But still...that's what scares me, not giving her all the attention she so truly deserves. To have another or not......

So, sweet baby girl, please stop growing...for Mami...just stay my baby forever :)
