Happy Meme Monday: Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is this week, and it sure feels like the year has been flying by at a rapid speed –  not sure why?! I always feel like after Thanksgiving, every other holiday is literally right behind it. I’m not sure if it’s the same where you live, but where I live the stores have been setting up their Christmas decorations even before Halloween. So, today I thought I’d give you some memes to commemorate the special day.

Be thankful, be grateful, be blessed.

Happy Meme Monday: Veterans Day

As some of you may know, my husband is a Marine veteran and although he doesn’t read my blog – I won’t hold that against him, nor does he want a thank you on this day. I’d still like to give him – and the rest of the brave men and women, a thank you for the years spent away, for all that they sacrifice, for all that they’ve seen and for all they did and continue to do so that others like myself may have the freedom we have today. And although a mere thank you may not be much, may it be a reminder to you that your service is greatly appreciated today – and always, and your bravery and sacrifice doesn’t go unnoticed.

So, if you’re a veteran – past or present, thank you, to you and your families, and God bless.

-Ana

Happy Meme Monday: Birthday Edition

Birthdays when you are a parent become a little different, they mean ….

• Reminding your kids when your birthday is

• Reminding your kids that today is your birthday

• You can choose to go out and enjoy your birthday as a family outside the home, only, you’ll be the one paying

• Kids love to decorate for birthdays, only, you’ll have to do the decorating for your own birthday

• If the kids get sick on your day, know that your birthday is automatically postponed/canceled by default – I know, don’t they have the best timing!

Feel free to add your own bullet points in the comment section!

I will be the first to admit that birthday’s are different when you’re a parent. Yes, the joys and extra love of being a parent on your birthday is undeniably amazing. But there are other realities too, I’d say, even more so when the kids are still little. Like, for instance, you’ll be reminding your little ones of when your birthday is weeks in advance, because this doesn’t seem egotistic – not at all, or that my lovely man of a husband in regards of the purchasing gifts department, well, let’s just say that isn’t his forte. So, in our years – not too many, of marriage we’ve come to an unspoken agreement that, I would buy my own gifts. Before you go on and feel sorry for me, don’t, thank you, but don’t! Because I’ve really come to appreciate myself in getting exactly what I want. There’s got to be some advantages of being the birthday girl while the children are still little!

And Happiest of Birthday to the rest of my fellow Scorpios, may your days be filled with blessing and much laughter!

Happy Meme Monday: House of Lost Things

Does this happen to you, or does this only happen in my household or perhaps you remember this from when you were younger. Why is it that moms are the only ones that can track lost things in the home?! It can be anything from batteries, to socks and shoes, to toys, to their favorite blanket. When something is no where to be found, kids don’t waste a minute before simply asking mom where it is or where to find it. Mom’s have the ability to remember where things were last placed or last seen, and can remember this for a long period of time. It’s a talent – it has to be!

Happy Meme Monday: Real Life Parent

If you have never understood why parents are always so tired, groggy and sleepy, perhaps it wasn’t until you became a parent yourself that you understood the reasons why. There are so many things that change when you become a parent. I think it’s a given to know that there is less time for you and more time for the little one. There is less time to get yourself ready, you know those days where you look so put together, yeah, you’ll be lucky to be wearing something decent, you know the beautiful wind blowing curly hair – nope, the makeup days are also reduced to really close to none. And the only thing that’ll be going through your mind will be just wanting to squeeze in 5 more minutes of sleep time. Because who doesn’t appreciate a good 5 more minutes of sleep?!
