First week of school was full of surprises!

Well, we made it alive past the first week of school. I’d have to say it’s been pretty nice to be back on this school schedule because my days normally go by a lot smoother when I have a schedule to follow. Kalilah loves her class and always has great stories to tell me when she comes home from school.  Making breakfasts ahead of time & freezing them has helped mornings become easier. I simply just made extra pancakes & waffles while I was making Sunday breakfast, let them cool, then put them in a zip lock bag and froze them. In the mornings I just toss them in the toaster and make eggs/bacon/sausage to pair with it. Thank you Pintrest!

 Not only has the mornings been a breeze but so has the rest of the days. I don’t know about the other mommies out there, but my girls bickered almost EVERY single day, multiple times a day, and about almost anything you can think of. It could be about what show they are watching, who is playing with what, what they decide to eat for lunch. Literally ANYTHING & I for sure was over it. Well with school back in action, I swear to you, I feel like I have 2 different daughters. The moment we wake up my youngest Jelly always asked Lila if she’s headed to school and of course every morning it’s the same answer of “yes.” Jelly then says that she’ll miss her and give her sister a huge hug. Not so sure if she’s just playing the role so she can have mommy all by herself or really going to miss her sister. But who knows.. it could be a good mixture of both! When it’s time to pick her up at the bus stop, Jelly runs so fast to her sister yelling “Lila!” and gives her another big hug. When we’re all up stairs they play/watch/eat nicely! I guess like my previous post says “sometimes we all need a little space!” I think that’s what it was titled. LOL

You see Jelly’s poor face down there!? She got bit by a mosquito twice.. once right about her eyebrow and one to the side of her eye. Thing is, she isn’t even the only child in our apartment complex that got bitten and had their eye swollen too! Something about korean mosquitoes! Well, even with her eyelid swollen & completely shut, my poor baby is still such a silly girl. Benedryl seemed to help alot with the swelling though 🙂 Hopefully it’ll go away soon.

Last night(Thursday), my husband came home out of no where. He wasn’t supposed to be until tonight. I was surprised but also super happy. I was just complaining that I wanted him home already. The thing is, you would think that I should know by now that my husband would pull some shit like this after 8 years of being together because he ALWAYS does. He’ll come home from AIT for a weekend, training, or R&R without telling me. He always lies about when he comes home, but I guess that’s never a bad thing. I love surprises.

Speaking of surprises, my husband pulled yet ANOTHER quick one on me. He comes home telling me to check my email. Naturally, I check it & find an email from Carnival Cruise Lines regarding our itinerary for our 4 day cruise to Ensenada, Mexico! I bout shit my pants! Haha just playing. But I’m sure you can picture my reaction. If you can’t, well let me describe it to you… I was jumping up and down and screaming like a little kid who just found a bag full of candy! Funny thing about this is.. I was literally browsing through cruises the night prior out of boredom. I even pinned some cruise tips on Pintrest & was talking to a friend about how bad I wanted to go again. We had went to a 7 day cruise to Canada in 2009 & loved every single moment of it, except me gaining 10 pounds. But thats not the point. We’re going on a cruise when we get back to San Diego! WOOHOO!

My Phamily is my world

This last week both my girls have been sick. And of course, as a mother it hurts seeing that they are in pain and there is absolutely nothing that you can do but give them hugs and kisses. Since they’ve been sick, I’ve let them both sleep with me in bed. Which by the way has not been comfortable at all. I got the baby kicking my ribs and my older one kicking my back. Other than the sleepless night, I wouldn’t want to spend these night any other way. Waking up to my babies are definitely the best way to wake up. I love seeing Jelly ( the baby) wanting to play with Kalilah the moment she sees her. She tried so hard to wake her up lol. I’m going to enjoy this now cause who knows when them two will start screaming bloody murder and pulling each others’ hair.

Today we got to Skype with daddy. Internet connection usually sucks butthole and we can’t Skype. Connection only last roughly 30 minutes before it went to poop again. Lila and Jelly were so excited to talk/see with their daddy. I hardly even got to say a word with Lila doing most of the talking. Jelly was non stop smiling and kept saying “da da” I can’t wait to have my phamily together again.Couple more weeks ❤
