I have been writing this post in my head for the last couple of weeks, without ever actually sitting down and doing it... I knew that being a mom was going to be hard, there is never enough time for things not involving Baby Moomin and/or Lola, but honestly, i have been taking time for myself every afternoon while the baby sleeps. My problem has been more a motivational one. I'm just always so tired and overwhelmed by life with a toddler, that whenever i get a small pause, my brain automatically shuts down.
This summer was... perfect! Of course we had very very hot days, were would spend almost the whole day indoors... but it was so much fun! We spent los of time in the pool, going to nearby lakes and the beach. We scheduled weekly swimming "lessons"... it was more like: meeting at our place to get the babies in the pool (and ourselves, of course). Here are some of the things we did on weekends: We wento to the California State Fair. Baby Moomin had a great time at the petting zoo and wathing all the cows :-D
It's been way too long since my last post. Lots has happened since. Sometimes there is just not enough time to sort things in your head and write them down and now, there is just so much material, that i have no idea where to start. So, i think i'll just start where we left off... Last time i wrote, my sister in law and her boyfriend were visiting us. We went to pick them up in San Francisco, stayed the weekend there and checked out Sausalito on our way back home:
Ok, let's just please pretend Baby Moomin's birthday party was not almost 2 months ago! Let's just all appreciate the fact that i finally edited the pictures of her party, so we can enjoy them: I wanted to have a normal, mexican birthday party, but as it turned out, it is quite difficult to find piñatas that are not shaped like superheroes, or stuff like that, so we decided to do like a unicorn theme. Don't ask me why or how we ended up with Peppa Pig... it just happened. Also, Pusheen... i just didn't find a better unicorn picture for the cake... i know, total chaos!
