Let’s Be Like a Normal Family – words from your 6yo

Halloween 2015 - the zombie popstar & her manager (6yo wanted the gory look)

Halloween 2015 – the zombie popstar & her manager (6yo wanted the gory look)

Popstar D (she has asked me to stop calling her Princess) and I watched “The Lady in Black” – a PG 13 ghost story, which was a bit scarier than I thought it would be, so I kept asking D if she was too scared. She kept saying no she was fine and together we giggled at the suspenseful bits. I also tried explaining how certain camera tricks were done to trip us out and she said she was having fun.

To the Latest Man who Broke My Heart… an open letter

Dear RCG… aka. the invisible boyfriend,

Blocking me on Instagram is a really weird and frankly cowardly way to “break-up” with me. I do think I deserve better than that.. especially since doing so makes it seem like one of my delusions was pretty much true, although in a much less dramatic fashion.  Continue reading

Communication vs. Being Needy… where is that fine line.

relationships are perplexing. and scary.

relationships are perplexing. and scary.

Every where you look there’s relationship advice for everyone, being shouted from every medium you can imagine. The internet, television talk shows, books, magazines even Buddist podcasts will sometimes broach the subject. So much of this advice stems on communication. Speaking to each other, saying what’s on your mind and and how you feel. Don’t be afraid to voice your doubts or tell your new love what is bothering you the experts, bloggers and writers tell you. The more you talk about these things the better your connection will be with your significant other. You need to communicate they say. Continue reading

When Daughter Takes Care of Mommy… a proud momma moment

a kiss will make you all better.

a kiss will make you all better.

My body hates me right now. Partly from not taking as good care of it as I should. Partly from this IUD I got in, which the doctor says should help with my migraines and heavy periods. Anyway, the hormones are messing with me and my body hates me. Continue reading

Ginger Root, Lemon, Honey Tea… when kids get sick

it’s that time of year again where we get sick.. and this tea helps relieve symptoms and kill those germs.

When your kids get sick it’s hard for any parent. Especially when that sickness comes with a cough and your little one isn’t old enough to have cough syurp.

That’s when I pull out the witches cauldron (as many of my co-workers like to joke) and create my own homemade remedy: ginger root, lemon, honey tea.

Vacation Time… Going to Vegas with my 5year old

Image

I am going to Las Vegas. For the first time in my life I am traveling to Sin City, the place where nothing leaves, secrets are kept and adults party for days straight. Or gamble their hours away. And I am going with my 5year old daughter. 

We’re going for a wedding, good friends of ours, and it is a family affair but every time Princess D tells someone she’s going to Las Vegas they stare at her, wide eyed, incredulous at the fact that this little innocent is going to Las Vegas, the Disneyland for the X-Rated. 

Am I nervous about taking her there? A little, but she has been to Nicaragua with me and this time there are more kids going so it will be more fun. 

Am I wishing I was going without her? Not at all. Although that might change once I get the Vegas vibe hitting me. 

Will it be an adventure? Yes. And it will be my chance to see how kids friendly Sin City can be. And to get some reviews of it from the mouth of a 5year old. 

What do we want to do? 

  • *M&M world – D wants this. I want to do a walk by. 
  • *Circus Circus acrobat show – apparently free every hour
  • *Shark reef & dolphins – apparently there’s a hotel with these, which kind of makes me sad but will be cool for D to see. 
  • *Ziplining – Mommy only and she’s terrified.
  • *Science / Discovery museum – fun for the kiddies that stimulates the brain
  • *Hiking in the desert – a must because both D and I are excited to see the desert

 

And now the journey begins. Fingers crossed we don’t have any flight issues…. *wipes sweat off brow*
