Sick Sick Sick

I tell you it has been crazy insane here. We have all been sick for almost a month now. It all started out with a round of colds for everyone in the house. Just when I thought we were all on the down side of all of this Victoria ends up getting a stomach flu. She was vomiting all day the other day. This is the first flu like this she has gotten since she was about 6 months old. She was freaked out because she had no idea what was happening to her. I was freaked out because she was crying all the time, miserable and suffering. I kept taking her temperature because I could tell she had fever but the thermometer was showing normal. Then it dawned on me as I watched it get higher and higher that her normal temp was below 98.6. I figured a temp of 98.6 her was close to 101.6. It was extremely stressful and frustrating for all of us. My sister had brought her a littlest pet shop toy to cheer her up and that brought about the first sign of hope. Then all of a sudden after a really long nap she woke up and all was right in the world again. Now I just have to sit her and worry that Izzy is next. I can only hope we are finally on our way to being healthy again.

Disney on Ice was Incredible!

Last Thursday night I had the wonderful opportunity to take Victoria to the Feld Entertainment's Disney on Ice live show here in Denver. I had been looking forward to being able to take her to a show like for 3 years now. It proved to be one of the best nights I have ever been able to share with her. Our evening started out with a special event hosted by Mom Central. We had the opportunity to meet other moms that were involved with helping to spread the word. I got to meet a lot of great people. We talked about the exciting upcoming events, got to meet and take pictures with the Incredible's, had dinner and then headed off to the show.

The show featured the Incredible's family vacation to Disneyland. There was excitement, fun, heroes, villans, great costumes, awesome skating and music to sing along to. In addition to that, there was an appearance by so many of the beloved Disney characters. Mickey and Minnie were there to greet everyone and get the show started. There was no shortage of mischeif and mayhem. Victoria laughed and sat on the edge of her seat the entire show. It was so fun to watch her. She is still talking to this day about how much fun she had.

Feld Entertainment provided high quality entertainment and a fun experience for the whole entire family. I know I created a memory that my daughter will carry with her for a long time. I look forward to many more shows in the future. If Disney on Ice comes to your area I highly recommend it for a family night of fun. You are sure to have a great time.

Disney just two days away!

I am so excited. We are headed to Disney on Ice in just two short days. I know Victoria is going to have a blast and I cannot wait to experience that with her. I will post the details afterwards. I hope others are taking advantage of this. The price really is great for such a wonderful event.

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

This morning I was trying to wake up and Victoria came into my bedroom asking me what the bug crawling in her bathroom was doing. I go in there to look and there was a spider crawling around in her tub. I squish it and throw it into the toilet. I go off to get dressed and when I came back to check on her what I found left me laughing. She was squatting on her stool in front of the toilet. I was wondering what the heck she was doing. Then I heard her singing "The itsy bitsy spider climbs up the water spout".

Always Daddy's Girl

March is always one of the hardest months for me. Growing up I longed to be Daddy's little girl and while I was not always certain about it, I now realize I was. It has been 9 years now since my Daddy passed away. Does the pain ever really go away? I still cannot even think about him without crying. I miss him so very much. I think about all he has missed out on that I want to share with him. His grandkids for one. He never got the chance to meet either of my girls. In some ways I feel so cheated. I get so angry sometimes when I think about it. I know he would have adored them. No matter what they will never know their grandfather. It just is not fair.

There are so many every day things that remind me of the good times we used to share. When i was younger we used to do camping and every year we would go tubing down the river. We also shared a love for the San Antonio Spurs. We used to go to the games together all the time. It was our time and I will cherish those memories for all of my life. Sometimes when I close my eyes I can even still hear his voice. I just wonder if I will ever get past it. After so many long years you would think I would be further along in my grief. I feel like I should be used to the idea now that he is gone forever. I just miss him so very much and I wish he was here with me now. I truly believe he is watching over me and my family. I can only hope he is smiling down on me and feeling pride for the life I have made for myself.

Always in my thoughts and forever in my heart.

When Mom Gets Sick

When Mom gets sick it is business as usual. Taking care of the kids is a 24/7 job with no paid vacation or sick days. I dread getting sick more now than I ever did before I had kids. Taking care of others when you feel like poop makes you feel more like poop. On top of feeling like poop, I am terrified to hug and kiss on my kids because the last thing I want is for them to get sick. I always feel like such a bad Mom. I watch over my kids but do not give them the attention they need and that makes me so sad. I am so paranoid they will catch what I have. A week without tons of hugs and kisses is surely no fun at all. The littlest tasks seem like such a chore when you have no energy.

If anyone knows of a wonder Mom cure or even something that will give you energy and make you feel better during the day I would love to hear about it. I have tried lots of things and nothing seems to work for me. What is your favorite cold remedy?

Disney on Ice

I have been waiting for years now for V to be old enough for me to take her to a show like Disney on Ice. She has finally reached that age and I am so excited. With the economy like it is though I figured I would still have to wait because it would be too expensive. Well, I am never one to pass up a good deal. I came across a great deal for the Disney on Ice. If you login and purchase your tickets through you can enter the promotional code "MOM" and get a family 4 pack of tickets for only $44.00. As far as I know though this code only works for the shows in the Denver area.

There are several shows in the area. We are going to the one on March 12th at 7:30pm but here are the other dates and times:

Friday March 13 11:00am, 7:30pm
Saturday March 14 11:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm
Sunday March 15 11:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm* *Spanish Performance

This offer good on all performances, minimum purchase of 4 tickets required; additional tickets above 4 can be purchased at $11 each. Not valid on Front Row or VIP seats or combinable with other offers.

My mom is coming to visit during that time. We are leaving the little one home with daddy and us girls are headed out for an evening of fun. It will be 3 generations of girls out on the town that night for some Disney fun. hahah I am not sure who is more excited though. V is excited but I think I have her beat. I will take lots of pictures and share our experience. It will even be that much more fun when I can take both of my girls. Izzy is just too young right now.

Anyone else planning on attending? I would love to hear about it if you are.
