My First True Love: A Letter to my Teenage Son

Dedicated to my oldest son, Brandon



We met face-to-face for the first time what seems like yesterday, but years have passed, and I have known you for a lifetime. You have led me on a remarkable journey through this forest of existence, and have taught me to cherish every detail. You have guided my feet toward a less traveled pathway, and on it, you have opened my eyes to a world full of treasures all others have taken for granted, cast aside or completely ignored.



I knew… Continue

Silence







He lies motionless in an unfamiliar place

He tries to view his world

Only to be met with nothingness

Faded mutterings of peculiar articulations

Surround his being

Taunting his curiosity





Focus . . .

His recognition fails, once more

He knows someone is there

Somewhere in the darkness

Who?





The shuffling of footsteps

On a rigid…

3D Ultrasound and Our First Glimpse of Baby Daniel

Perhaps all pregnant women will agree with me when I say that one of the most awaited pregnancy moments is when you get to listen to your baby’s heartbeat for the first time; or better yet, when you get your first glimpse of him while he is still in your tummy.



Our experience was no different. We rushed to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City as soon as our obstetrician advised us that we could have pictures of our baby taken through 3D ultrasound. Unfortunately, Daniel was not… Continue

"It Sucks When"

“It sucks when” this was a trending topic on twitter. Some of the comments were funny and some were not so funny. There was one comment caught my eye and made me think it does suck when there is not enough money to go around for all the things need in your daily life. When you’re not 100% sure where your next dollar will come from or if you not sure if you can provide food for your family. As it stands now I have not have to think about this, but am I just 3 paychecks away from this…maybe I… Continue

The Nerve! Fighting back against rude people everywhere!

The rudeness of people never ceases to amaze me. There you are . . . just going about your day-to-day life, when someone does something or says something just downright rude. The nerve! When this happens to me, I'm usually so stunned by their audacity that I cannot think of a reply until moments, even days later when I realize, after careful consideration of how this person affected my life, invaded my personal space, and (sometimes) even triggered a tear or two.



I was brought up to… Continue

The ABCs of Me

A - Age: 37 going on dead





B - Bed size: not big enough, but apparently suited for a queen. I'm assuming that queen didn't have a cover-hogging, freight train-sounding husband, dogs who only sleep on Mom's side of the bed, or two small kids running into her room in the middle of the night because











is out to get them!







C - Chore you hate: How about I just list all the ones I don't hate? That would be a whole lot… Continue

Motherhood in Overdrive Part Deux

Continuation from yesterday's posting (see post immediately below this one): And Now . . . The Rest of the Story (RIP, Mr. Harvey)



I left the computer for (what was intended to be) a brief moment of comforting one of the twins while he was paying homage to the Great White Porcelin God. However, in the midst of rubbing his back and wiping his face as he hurled projectile masses of unknown constituents into the depths of clear blue waters, the phone rang. I let it go to voicemail,… Continue

Motherhood in Overdrive

Have you ever tried getting work done when you feel like death? Do you fall behind on daily tasks when you're so sick that you just want to lie still, close your eyes, shut out the world and finally give your body the rest it needs to recouperate, but can't? If you're a mother, you know all too well what I'm talking about. Why is it that we, mothers, must carry on despite the fact that we feel like warmed over road kill?



What inspired this post? Yep, you guess it! I'm freakin' sick… Continue

Ready, Set, Pee!

Being penis challenged, I have absolutely no idea why it seems near impossible for little boys to pee only in the toilet. One would think that the target is big enough. Most toilet seats are about 1.5 feet long, and about 6 inches wide; plenty of room to adequately catch a stream of kiddie pee, right? WRONG. I find pee all over the bathroom. It’s on the floor, sprinkled on the bathtub, and don’t even get me started on the collection of pee I ALWAYS find in puddles at the base of the toilet. It… Continue

Stealing from Blogs Versus Borrowing

The other day, a friend of mine found out that someone she had done a blog makeover for went and used her code to make over someone else's blog. My friend found out when she checked in on the site she had done only to see "I just did this makeover" posted. She emailed the person and contacted the blog owner and was eventually compensated.



Once I was dropping entrecards and I noticed that one blogger had a post divulging someones contact information. The reason? He had been stealing… Continue

Updating Way Late

I suck at keeping this blog updated, hu? Lo siento.
Also, if I don't respond to your comment or posts to my profile, it's because I never get notification of them. I'm begging for forgiveness here, mkay? You can always chew my butt out at momtomartians@gmail.com. I can take it.

my body aches for all the wrong reasons

My baby isn't a baby anymore.

That teeny tiny body is growing fast.

I decided to take her out of a walk but wondered if I should carry her in the stroller or strap her to me in the baby carrier. She likes to be up high and I thought she would enjoy taking in the scenery from my height so I strapped her to me in the carrier. Big mistake.

I walked up the hill and immediately my back began to hurt. She was loving her walk and I was regretting it.

We walked for 15 minutes or so… Continue

I stole this story from my sister.. it is hilarious

"Yesterday the two big boys were playing upstairs when I heard C- give a blood curdling scream, followed by M- tearing downstairs to tell me "C- told me too!" and C- showing up to scream "I DID NOT!"
M- "Oh yes he did. He said bite my butt"
