Coffee Night with Ellie!


Before I became mommy I said lots of things I wouldn't do. Approaching Christmas was especially my biggest debate. "I will make sure I tell my kids there is NO Santa Clause" I would say! My main reason for this idea was because I had been working for a school for almost 4 years and seeing the attitudes, and misbehaved kids I had under my charge had me convinced no Santa Clause for my kids! For Santa to bring your gift one had to behave and respect others.

Now I start to think "but why my children have to clean the dirty dishes because of them?" and its when my debate starts whether I should tell them the truth about this character! Everywhere we go we see him in the mall for example. How can I say it doesn't exist when he can see him right there sitting on a big couch waiting for all these children to pass and take a picture with him.

Growing up as a child MY parents never made a BIG deal about Santa Clause. Gifts always came from Mom and Dad. I was explained at a very young age that Christmas was about Spirit and not necessarily receiving presents! Now my big question is should I tell my kids there is a Santa Clause or not? Seeing my toddler a 2 year old boy seeing movies about this Character and pointing and saying "mommy mommy sana sana" I don't know what to say to him.

Seeing my toddler actually liking this guy and seeing all his innocence believing in this Character bringing presents to all the children around the world I feel I would be shattering his vision. Then again I think how small he is but very intelligent toddler!

Maybe I am just exaggerating much about this believe or not. I just want to make my children's have a fun childhood. I also want to teach them the real meaning of Christmas in my point of view. Any mommas going through the same thing? How are you handling it? Leave your comments below! I love to read them...Till then toddles!

Three, Five and under!

Yesterday I had a reality check. Which is very rare with me because most of the time I try to be realistic in all the things around me. So thankfully I have a very supportive family and I have had their help since my first one was born. Now that I have a newborn I admit I am very blessed to have a lot of helping hands for all of my babies. Well Yesterday my dad asked if I could drive him to the Dr. and well I mean I had nothing to do besides taking care of the baby and my oldest since my other one was at school and I left him. Reality Check...as I was going to pick up my middle child from school it took me a while to process what I was going to do. So many questions where passing through my head. "How am I going to do this?, I don't have a stroller with me, Should I carry the car seat, is my oldest going to help me?" My mind just started running with all the what ifs. Thankfully my oldest does help me a lot and I know that is not his job but I am very grateful that I do …

Back with Three Musketeers!

My last login was about a year ago. Every time I want to continue with my hobby there is always something else to do. A lot can go on in a year of no login for example having another child. Yes is what I call my family of three little boys the Three Musketeers. Wow having 3 children 5 and under is a hassle, and mommies who are in the same shoes as I am will totally understand. I do want to continue being in the blogging community but as some of my readers might know this blog started as a beauty and trying to keep up with some trends. So little by little I want to continue writing and making reviews and all that good stuff. I do think of my blog and returning all the time it's just I have to make this blog one of my priorities also to continue with what I want to achieve.


Project 52 Who Are You?

Project 52 consist of sharing a picture every week. It is to better your skills in photography. Lately I've been obsessed with taking pictures, I wasn't really a fan of photography till my first son was born! I wanted and want to capture every moment I can and now that my second son was born he is not the exemption! So I thought it would be a great idea to share a photograph a week with the theme and write a little bit of its significance.
