A Parents Worst Nightmare Come True - The Day Valentina Had Emergency Surgery


When I welcomed November, I remember saying something like surprise me, well when it came out my mouth it was meant in good faith. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that Saturday November 17th would transform into the longest, scariest and worst night of my life, up to date. As parents we've had our scares with Miguel but never like the one that happened that Saturday night. One thing that I can assure you is that this momma pulled all her strength together and made sure to put on a brave face and not cry or look worried in the presence of our little jellybean. My job was to reassure baby girl that everything would be ok and that she was fine throughout the entire 18 hours before her emergency surgery.

Happy 1st Day Of November


Hello November

All You Need is $1 To Start Saving For Your Child's Higher Education With The NY529 College Savings Program #NY529Event


When I was younger I was blessed with two parents who worked very hard and were able to save money for our college education, that meant that all three of us got to graduate without any debt.
But time has changed and that means that living cost is higher than ever, making it harder to save for your child/children college education, that is if you are not informed and don't know where to look. This past weekend I got to attend a Momtrends event with the lovely people from NY529 college savings program. Valentina got to go with me and as us parents listened and got a refresher on how easy it is to save for our kids higher education, she got to bloom artistically and make some fun arts and crafts with The Craft Studio team

Little Smile Of Yours


Baby girl is always a happy little girl and for that we are truly blessed, her little smile will melt away the darkest of clouds. 
It has been rough these past few nights but you wouldn't even notice because that smile hasn't left her face for one moment.
