Feeling Lucky!

Today i was doing the laundry (when am i not???)
and as usual picking the little things out of the washer......and out of the dryer.
You know, those things that are left behind in the pockets of the kids? (total Beaver Cleaver)
Those kid treasures! I pick them out and put them in a can on the shelf above the washer. Today i couldn't help myself from laughing! Check out allllll these fun things that come out of my kids pockets! Things that are important enough to save in the pockets.........but then forgotten.......only to become my little treasured memories. The little things that make me smile.
Sooooo, here we have it: some change, of course. A marble, a seashell, a ladybug clip, a ring, a bracelet, a paperclip, a dice, a rock,
a spring (???) a fingernail file (you never know when you may need to bust someone out!) a doll shoe, a sticker, a rubber ball, and some little cow guys we got from the machine at the grocery, etc.
These "pocket treasures" make me feel lucky to be a mommy!!!!
And they make laundry a little more enjoyable too!
But as a sidenote......i have also encountered a Crayon or two in the dryer.
That doesn't go over very well, especially when they are in the 'whites'!!!!!
C`e la Vie!

That Liliana!!!

I had a light bulb moment tonight. I remembered how when i was pregnant with Liliana people would stop me, all the time. (really. this is no joke!) They would tell me how blessed i was, or tell me "God Bless you", or just drawn to touch my belly.........alllll the time! It was bizzarre. This is the baby we didn't plan to have remember? BUT......we know and even then we knew she was a blessing in disguise! We just couldn't imagine life without this child!
My lightbulb was tonight at Emilio's baseball game........people are still drawn to her!
She attracts attention everywhere we go!
She is witty, and cute, and silly, and loud, and bossy, and a copy cat, talks too much, climbs out of the shopping carts to freak people out (except me. she never falls) she won't hold my hand in a parking lot, she wants to eat out of a "glass bowl" or she won't eat, she argues with me over what clothes she is going to wear, and don't get me started on the shoes! She has to buckle her own seatbelt and close the car door, CRAZY basically. And of course the list goes on........and on..........
But people still love her! They talk to her all the time! She has great energy about her......shear independance! She amazes me. She makes me laugh. She makes me shake my head in disbelief (Javi too.!) And some days this strong willed little human can make me cry!
This child is a piece of work! She is ONLY 2 people!!!!!!
