My list is miles long for reasons as to why I love my husband. But I will keep it short, simple and sweet.
In honor of his birthday tomorrow I thought I could list a few to share with the world about my special guy!
Great Listener

Mother's Day 2011

Mother's Day is May 8th this year. This will be my 2nd Mother's Day. My 1st one was me still forming routines, getting the hang of such a beautiful change that recently occurred in our lives. It was intimate because my husband know how to go above and beyond to meet whatever my needs are.  I rather not go out on big holidays such as Mother's Day because of the traffic, long waits, crowded stores and restaurants. 

We spent our last Mother's day at home. My feet were kicked up all day and all my wishes being granted.  This year is approaching very fast. I'm not sure what he has up his sleeves. I know what I am sure of and that is being truly grateful for my wonderful little family.

Do you go out for Mother's day? Visit anyone? What are your traditions?

What do you hope your children say about you as a mother, 30 years from now?

As a mother there are no days off. You want to do everything just right. Lead by example, sometimes you will find yourself being a mirror-image to your mom. I find my mom's words coming into my everyday language now that I have become a mother.

I live daily by keeping my faith first.  I pray for strength because as a mom and wife I want to be all I can be for my family.  Being able to teach my daughter, grow with her and connect in every way possible is very important to me.

I can only pray I continue to provide my daughter with a positive environment and stability in her household.  I also want her to see her parents love each other and even more importantly have an unconditional bond for her.  I want her to set short and long term goals and achieve everything she dreams and beyond.

What do I hope for my children to say about me as a mother, 30 years from now?

I hope my children says: I am loving, caring, sharing, put them as my first priority, a devoted wife, great teacher, beautiful on  the inside and out, leader, great cook, admirable, spontaneous, care-giver, humorous, honorable, kind, huge heart, fabulous, extraordinary, God-fearing, faithful, wonderful friend, awesome listener.

Be proud to say I am their mommy!

Nothing to it but to do it!

I can write on a piece of paper all day long on topics I want to blog about. When it is time to blog I find a million other things that needs to be taken care of around the house. When I make a post I want it to have meaning not write just because I havent updated my blog and may lose my followers(friends)

I can also sit here and makes excuses as to why I havent been on top of things. What made me drop the ball? Where is my focus? Being a SAHM is not the glamours lifestyle some assume for it to be. There are many mothers out there who I know understands me. I am definently not sitting down with my feet kicked up filing my nails. I am also not shopping until I drop at all the fancy clothing boutiques. I am spending a lot of my time with my little one who deserves all my attention. We can not get these moments back! Also running errands, washing clothes and preparing dinner to my deserving husband. Absolutely no complaints. I am finally learning the balance of this new lifestyle though. Thank Heavens!

With that being said, I have many opportunities to write reviews, guest post and start giveaways. I almost found myself losing the motivation I had when this whole blogging opportunity began. I'm back!!!
