FRIYAY! I hope everyone had a great week and ready for the weekend to come. Even though I am not working at the moment and everyday seems the same, I still love the weekends. Saturday and Sunday I get to cook breakfast with Gavin and we have time to eat slower than in the weekdays when he rushes out of the house. I also love that Sundays can be consider the lazy day (in my point of view) and when waking up at 10 AM is consider ok. Do you love the weekends as much as I do?

November is considered in a few countries the month to be thankful. In the USA we end this month with the over-stuffing-yourself event called "Thanksgiving" which is a time to be with family and be grateful for all the blessings you have in your life. Today I wanted to share my gratefulness on having mothers (maternal and in-law) who already are spoiling our Baby MJ. Since both of them live far away, I don't get to see them as often as I wish I could. 
My in-laws already gave us a big bag full of baby clothes, including the most special/important ones that are the baby clothes that Gavin wore when he was a premi. They are to die-for. 
My mom, on the other hand, when she found out we were expecting a boy, she started collecting TONS of baby things. Later she put them all in a bag and gave it to our friend who lives in Malaysia and was visiting my mom's city. He handed us today the bag full of surprises for Baby MJ, Gavin, and I. It really felt like we were celebrating Christmas/Birthday/Easter all in one day.

I am very grateful for mothers and mothers-in-law. Not only because they send/give us amazing things, but now that I am an expecting mother, I can understand a little bit more what they went through: being pregnant for starters, raising kids, cooking dinner for the hubby, and a never ending to-do list to name a few (I am not even mentioning diapers, sleepless nights, tantrums, and sickness). So to all you mothers out there, and specially to my mother and mother-in-law give yourselves a big pat on your shoulder, and feel proud of yourselves. You have done wonders, and if I can be as close as amazing as you are I would be more than grateful. 


I think we don't have to shop for blankets, swaddles, or clothes for a year at least. 

Enjoy your weekend, call your mothers if you haven't done, and enjoy the surprises life brings you.

PS: I found an amazing discount on curling wands. Head over to Kaylee Wright's blog and check out her nice promotion on curling wands. If you are looking for one, you can get TWO  WANDS for $39. You can read more about her offer and how it works. Or you can just check NeMu's website. By selecting two wands, at the checkout the price will change to $39. Good deal for a Christmas present.

  1. Liebe Carolina....... thank you for your kind comments; it's wonderful to know that you appreciate and respect your mother and myself for what we have done for our kids - and still do!! (-: ....... it's called "Mutterliebe" - one of the strongest emotional bonds known between humans - which you will experience yourself once you are holding little baby X in your arms. Nothing is stronger than the love you will feel for this baby! Nothing! Although I must admit there were certain times when I was ready to throw the kids out the house...... ;-)
    So Gavin - enjoy being No.1 in Carolina's life for the next few months ....... as Alan says, by now he has moved down the ladder even further; he's not just No.4 anymore after the kids but now it's the grandkids as well.... so yes, "poor" him, he is down to No. 7........ (-; soon to be No.8......
