Let The Fun Begin


As you can imagine I am very excited to be on vacation for the next 3 weeks. The last time I had this much time off during Christmas was when I was in grade school ( I don't count my mat leave because I had a new baby to take care off).

So as you can imagine I am very excited and look forward to doing some work for the business (Baby Thoughts) and to get caught up with some house work (the never ending laundry and dishes)

I also have doctor and dentist appointments lined up for both Isa and I and I hope to get together with some friends for lunch.

I also hope to be able to get together with my moms group and the kids over the break, I was really worried that we would loose contact but we have been making a real effort to get together and now we see each other once a month. Being in this group has been my lifeline...I loved getting together with other women and just having a fun chat over decaf coffee (at the beginning and the real stuff later on). I loved that Isa had little friends to learn from and interact with. I just plain loved having the support and adult conversation.

Just this week we received news that the mother of one of the moms in the group passed away really unexpectedly. I really feel for my friend and her family...I really don't know how to best help her because I have never been through such a terrible loss. I am really afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing and hurting her. I know that I am probably being really dramatic but that is how I feel. I don't always know how to act or what to say to someone who is going through a lot of pain. Does this make me seem uncaring? I'm really not...I care a great deal about her and just hope to be able to communicate this.

Sorry for just rambling on and on about this but it has been on my mind.

So have you gone to check out her Bad Mother Auction? If you have not the bidding will close tomorrow so go and check it out and see if you would like to win something.

I am off to tackle the never ending laundry and messy kitchen...wish me luck.

To Drink or not to drink

I don't know if I should be sharing this little bit about the Husband and I but what the people don't know us.

The thing is that we enjoy a nice beer or glass of wine almost every night. After Isa is in bed we get a beer/ wine and sit down to dinner or our favaourite tv show. I don't know what that makes us but I do know that it is something that we have grown up with. In our culture it is very common to have wine with dinner.

When I was pregnant I gave up alcohol right from the beginning and let me tell you it was painful. But I got over it, and once Isa was born I would sneek in a sip of wine right after I would feed her.

I have a friend who is about 4 or 5 months pregnant and she has told me that she will in fact have a sip of alcohol once she is 7 months along. I don't know if I could do this, I would be too paranoid that I would hurt the baby. I know that I would start to imagine the worst things and just work myself into an early labour. So no booze for me while pregnant.

For this reason I savour the drinks that I have now because there will come a time when I will not be able to have any for too long of a time.

So on a related was the Husband's work X-mass party last weekend and I know and are friends with many of his colleges. I was really looking forward to it because I had not seen some of them since the summer and I have a great time with them. We were lucky to get a good friend of mine to take care of Isa (well Isa was in bed by all she had to do was make sure that she stayed in bed).

All I am going to say is OPEN BAR. As you can well imagine I took this a little too far (not that far) but just a smitch too far and wound up with a nice hang over the next morning. Thankfully I did not embarrass the Husband...that would not have been good. And bless her heart Isa understood and was kind enough to wake up at 7 am take her bottle, a change of diapers and go back to sleep 'till 9 am.

It has been such a long time since I have been hung over that I had forgotten how much I hate it and how it is so not worth it... Oh well at least I had a blast.

Let the whining begin

Isa has discoved that if she whines she gets our attention and if she does it long and loud enough she may even get something fun out of it.

So the Husband and I have started to really watch how we react to her because we really don't want to get ropped into this tactic.

What we have started to do is look at her while she is making this annoying sound and see what she wants. Than once we have figured out what it is we say to her " would you like your water?" or " would you like to be picked up?" things like that, though I do try to ask in Spanish as I am trying to only speak to her in Spanish.

Needless to say it is a chanlenge for me because, to me my first language is English...but I must make the effort.

I think that I have shared with people that I would really really love it if my daughter knew Spanish...both my husband and I are Spanish and many of our family members only speak Spanish. So for this reason and others it is very important for Isa to learn the language.

So I am making a very concious effort to provide her with Spanish books, DVD's and friends who also hear Spanish at home so that she will grow up listening to it.

I have no idea how things will turn out but I do know that if I try and work hard at making Spanish an important language in our home she will know a good amount....I hope.

So back to the whining...I have to say that I am not prepared for this next stage in our lives. I am a non-confrontational person. This means that I tend to just give into people's wants and needs. So, this means that my first reaction to when Isa whines is to just give her what she wants...not a good idea. So my life has changed and I am trying to stand firm and teach her the right way to ask for things.

I just hope that I don't slip too much and get in trouble. Wish me luck people 'cause I am gona need it.

The Cute Things She Does

This post is about all the absolutely adorable things that my little Isa does...I want to write things down because I tend to forget.

Isa, is slowly becoming her own person (at least, I think that it's slowly but maybe not) she has preferences for many things from the temperature of her food to the way I get her ready at day care.

This little girl is very particular about the temperature of her food and drink...she will only eat her food if it is hot, if it cools down she will spit it out and not eat anymore until it has been warmed up. Don't ask me where she got this habit because I certainly did not encourage it. In fact when she first started having solids (pureed baby food) I would give it to her at room temperature. Now, she wont touch the stuff...this can be a problem when we are out and about because I have to find a way to heat it up. Don't get me wrong I don't really go that out of the way...if there is no way for me to heat the food up I give it to her a room temperature and if she is hungry enough she will have it. The key word is hungry enough.

As for her milk the same rules apply...this is even harder for me to give to her cold. She will spit it out if it's not to her liking. She is such a little princess.

I am grateful that she does eat well...most of the time. We did go through a tough period a short time ago but once I discovered that she likes her food hot the problems went away.

Another quirk that Isa has is that she does not like to mix solid food (like bits of chicken or veggies) with pureed food. She likes to have them separate and if for some reason there are chunky bits in her pureed food she spits it all out. As you can imagine this is very frustrating...mostly because when I puree her stuff I am too lazy to see if there are any bits left and then I find out when she spits the whole spoon full out on me. This another thing that I have learned about her...she likes to keep her food separate none of this mixing business.

Another little thing that she likes is that when I go and pick her up at day care, I have to give her her pacifier before I can start getting her ready to go. She knows that it is in her diaper bag and that mommy gives it to her when she goes home. I call it my secrete weapon but I guess that it's no longer a secrete.

I have to say that I love to watch her play by herself. I love the way she talks to her toys and moves around. I love how every once in a while she stops and just looks at the toy that she has in her hands and examines it. Frankly, I just love looking at her and I love showering her with kisses, I love that she waddles towards me with her little arms out and follows me everywhere.

She is such an amazing little girl who has a smile for everyone and a kiss for her two favourite people.

She Walks....Hurray...

Isa finally walks...she has been waddling along now for a couple of months but yesterday she walked 10 steps or so. She still only truly walks when you offer her something that she likes and you keep moving the item away from her. That's my girl...there has to be something in it for her.

So I am happy about her finally moving forward and getting around on her two little legs. Part of me wanted her to walk very badly but another part(the lazy part) of me did not mind that she could only crawl.

Now, I know that she is going to get into EVERYTHING and that we have to move into phase II of baby proofing the house. I am so not looking forward to it.

Oh well....still really happy that she is walking...hurray for my little preciosa.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

Are you ready for # 2? This is the question that I have been hearing as of late. I had lunch with a friend who asked me if I had thought about having the second baby. The truth is that I have and that the husband and I have decided to wait until Isa was older (she is 14 months right now).

Another reason why we want to wait is because we want to focus on
BABY THOUGHTS and we want to give it two years before we make any major decisions. We are also postponing buying a bigger house for the same reason.

But many of my friends are thinking about baby #2 and in fact two of them are already pregnant so I have babies on my mind. I also would love to be on mat leave again and have the whole year with my new baby and Isa and hang out with my friends and their kids but this is just not very realistic.

I have to think about what will be best for me (professionally) and the entire we will hold off on # 2
. I just wonder if it is best to have children close together or far apart? Though the most important thing is that you are ready mentally and physically.

We shall see but I don't think that it will happen anytime soon....

I am such a Bad Mother

I am such a bad mother....the other day I bought Isa size 3 diapers (she usually wears size 4) and now every morning she has peed herself. The reason being that her diapers can no longer absorb a drop more. When I go in the mornings to get her ready for day care the diaper weighs more then she does.

I feel soooo bad, I can't believe that I made such a her mother, the one that knows everything about her which included the size of diaper that she wears. So today I will be stopping by the grocery store to pick up some larger diapers to put on her for the nights because to make things worse I bought a box of the freaking diapers. And any mother knows, you will use every last one of them because they are too expensive not to do so.

Bad Bad mommy.

Where are you Balance?

I recently went to a workshop with Joe Rich where he addressed the issue of finding balance in your life.

He said something very importat...parents should not strive to be "Perfect" but "Better". He said that there is no such as thing as being a perfect parent because we can never actually grab perfection. I think that he makes an excelent point...the question is how will we mothers remember this. I have been guilty of trying to be the perfect mother and wife in the past and it has worn me out. When Isa (aka La Preciosa) was born, I wanted to be the perfect mom, wife, cleaning lady, and cheff. I created this vision in my head that I would be able to take care of a newborn, clean the house, cook a delicious meal and be a happy wife when my husband came home.

This lasted one the first morning I had not had a shower, was eating toast for lunch and had breastfed Isa what felt like a billion times. Thankfully, I quickly realized that I was not going to do all of the things that I had expected to do.

What is funny is that the Husband's expectations where that I would take care of Isa all day and sleep when I could. He only cared that the baby and I were rested and happy.

Once I got the original picture of how my life would be after Isa was born, things were great. My purpose everyday was to ensure that we enjoyed our time together and to sleep whenever she did. This went on for many months and I really enjoyed it. As she got older and started sleeping through the night (at 7 months) I would do some housework while she slept.

Before I went back to work, I again created a picture in my head of how our lives would be once I started I would make sure that our clothes, our lunches, Isa's bottles and extra clothing would all be ready the night before. I would also cook double portions every night so that we would have leftovers for lunch, try to do laundry in the nightt so that I would not have to spend my weekends doing it.

As you can imagine this lasted one night...every once in a while I do try to have things done before I go to bed so that I am not rushed in the mornings but these nights are few and far between. As for cooking double this lasted a little longer then I had expected but there are still many days when I just pop in a ready made meal in the oven and buy my lunch the next day.

I have not beaten myself up for how things are going because we are all doing the best we can and frankly life is not all about cleaning and making sure that I make enough food for leftovers.

My priority is to spend as much time with my beautiful daughter who is growing up so fast. There are days when I want to leave work and just never return. These are the days when I am the most down because I know that I can't, but I miss her so much. But there are days when I have a great time at work and I feel guilty that I am not missing my child. This is one of the many conflicting emotions that mothers feel.

I have vowed that I will just strive to be a better mother and wife and anything extra is just that, extra. I think we should all do that.

Yes...I am Still Alive

I know that I have not posted for quite some time now, mostly because I have been very busy at work and once I get home I have just soooooo much to do.

La Preciosa has also been taking up a great deal of my time since I like to spend the hour and a half that we have together every day playing with her. Also I have not had much to say and have felt quite blah.

I had written a post after our trip to my inlaws for thanksgiving but I thought that it was too harsh to actually post it so I deleted it. I can't believe that I had to censor myself but I don't want to hurt their feelings in case they should one day read this blog.

This year is going by really fast, Halloween is approaching and then before we know it its Christmas and 2007. I can't wait for the holiday season...this year La Preciosa will get to enjoy it just a little bit more and the grandparents will go insane. I have been thinking about creating our own family traditions just like the ones that I had with my parents. But she is still too young to truly appreciate them so I think that I will do it next year. There are a few that I intend to take from my own family and some from the husband's family, but I also want to have something that is just ours.

I am a very traditional girl at heart when it comes to Christmas. I love having the family over and having a big turkey dinner and opening gifts at midnight. Another tradition that we have in my family is that we make this special family stuffing that my brother and I LOVE. It takes a whole freaking day to make and lots of people. So this year I will invite my brother and his girlfriend over to our place and we can all make it. Last year my mom was in the country, my brother joined us and we all made it together and had so much fun. I am thinking that we will also put up the Christmas tree on this day as well...I wonder how La Preciosa will react to it? She will probably want to climb the thing or eat the ornaments.

I am so not looking forward to having to do further baby-proofing once she can walk. I bet that she will be getting into everything. I have been fortunate lately since she has not been very curious and once she knows what something is she moves on.

This year the husband and I have decided to get a big family gift and we have decided that we just have to get a digital video camera. La Preciosa is doing so many cool things that we really need to capture them all and this way she can see herself when she is older. There are times when I wished that our family had a video camera, we went on so many wonderful trips and had amazing family parties that I would have been nice to have a record of them.

I am also thinking that we will limit what we by the little one...I know that her grandparents are going to go crazy buying things for her and she really does not need more things. I want to buy her toys that can grow with her but I don't really know what they are. I am also thinking of putting away some of the toys that she has and only have a few out. That way I can bring them out later on and she will be surprices and happy to see them. I just have to get around to doing it.

Wow this has certainly turn into a very large post...I hope that you won't think that it is just verbal diarrhea. But if you do, don't tell me.

Thank you very much for listening, till later...

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

With the mornings getting cooler I have decided to wear a hat. The reason for wearing one is that I always wash my hair in the mornings because I am too damn lazy to wash it the night before and blow dry it. So, I have this nice black hat that makes me look like I am Carmen Sandiego . I felt very self-conscious walking to work today because everyone kept staring at me...I like to think that maybe they thought that I was a celebrity trying to hide my identity but since I was riding the subway at 7:30 in the morning this could not possible be the case. Which means that I probably looked like a freak. I like my original thought, it makes me feel better.

I have to confess that I have been doing nothing at work this morning since I came in at 8am...I was catching up on my mommy blogs and trying to not laugh out loud at the funny stuff posted. Sadly many of the moms who write these blogs have been feeling down and have thought of even stopping their blogs, I really hope that they don't because they really gave me a great deal of support in the first few months after Preciosa was born. They wrote about the struggles that they experienced and how they were up at 4 am every morning feeding their little made me think every morning when I fed Preciosa that in another house in Toronto another mama was also up feeding their little one. There are many times when you feel very alone as a is good to know that you are not...that is why I love the blogs and it is one of the reasons why I started mine.

I am going to cut this blog short because I have to get back to looking productive....just kidding.

I have other things to talk about but don't have time right now...stay tuned...

cheers everyone!

Monday, September 25, 2006


The title really describes how I feel today...I had two cool topics to talk about on the blog on Sunday at 4 am but I can't remember either of them.

So this will be a very boring blog because after work I have no creative juice left in me. Its incredible just how freaking tired and BLAH I am afterwork. After I come home with Preciosa and we spend our time together and I put her to bed, I am totally done. The small brust of energy that I get while we are together is gone as soon as I put her to bed. I hope that things will improve...because if I want to get the business going I will have to do work after she is in bed.

I have been thinking about organizing my blog but I have yet to figure out how I will do this. In other blogs that I read there are certain headings used for certain days, for example every wednesday has a certain title. The one day that I think I know what I will call it is Friday. From now on, if I post a blog on Friday it shall be called TGIF (Thank Goodness Its Friday...not an original name but it truelly is how I feel every friday). I will try to come up with another title for the posts at a later date.

Since I have just started I don't really need to have things fully figured out yet.

I am going to be going now because the little one will not go to sleep...she can probably hear the keboard as I type.

Hello Everyone...I am back!

Sorry for the long absence, I have been very busy at work lately and have not had time to blog.

To get you up to date:

La Preciosa had her birthday on September 16 and being the star that she is she pulled a Paris Hilton and had 3 days of partying.

Party #1- We had friends over on Saturday to celebrate...had LOTS of fun, with good friends, little ones, good food, and birthday cake (made by Spandex Woman...Yummy)

Party #2- Went over to in-laws and celebrated with them by having a bar-b-q and sitting outside with La Preciosa playing on the grass. She helped her grandfather by pulling out as much grass as her little hands could grasp.

Party #3- Had the moms and tots from my mom group over to our place to was very nice to see them and for La Preciosa to hang out with her friends.

By the end I was exhausted and now I have training all week and lots of work to catch up.

I would like to say here on the blog..Thank you to all who came to celebrate La Preciosa's first Birthday with us.

Break is over and have to get back to my training, I will post some more stuff later on.

ciao everyone

These boots ain't meant for walking

So yesterday I wore my high heel boots for the first time since January 2005...and let me tell you people that it FREAKING hurt!

If you know me you know that I cannot walk in high heeled anything, I am disgrace to my latina heritage because latinas are supposed to be able to run in high heels caring their babies.

So I think that I will have to take things easy and build up my tolerance of high heel shoes, how pathetic does that sound. You should have seen me yesterday...I felt like I was walking like a freaking giraffe, but I snuck a look in a mirror as I was walking and I did not look like a giraffe...this made me feel better.

So on to another topic...I have changed my user name on the blog...from now on I will be going by the very unimaginative name of Bloor West Mama (BWM). I was thinking of copying the BMW logo and changing the lettering but since I am not computer wiz this will take some time.

This saturday we will be celebrating la Preciosa's first birthday. I can't believe that it has been one year. Time really flies, next thing I know she will be going to school and then university...part of me doesn't want her to grow up so quickly but another part is looking forward to the wonderful things that are still to come. Another big part is not looking forward to the growing pains that we will experience, but oh well that's life.

It's Alive...It's Alive

I would like to inform everyone of the birth of our new baby...Our

I have been hinting that the Sexy was working non stop on something, it was the creation of our website. provides new and expectant mothers resource information, from after hours clinics to fitness programs to take part with your baby. Baby is also a place where mothers can create and join communities where they can get together with other mothers and talk about all things baby.

The website was my way of sharing the information that I found very useful during my pregnancy and after the birth of Preciosa. Also being part of a group of mothers was so much fun it was something to look forward to. We shared stories, problems, solutions and offered each other a tremendous amount of support. I value my mom friends a great deal and the website will enable mothers to create communities based on their own individual needs.

I want this website to help all mothers and mothers-to-be across the country, that is why your comments and suggestions are very welcomed. Stop by and check it out.

I would also like to say that my husband was amazing, he is the creator of the website and without him it would not have happened. Cheers to my husband.

What's in a Name?

Hurray, I got my first exciting for me. The comment came from my good friend who wishes to be called Spunky on the blog. Now, she thought that I had called her a "goof friend" but that was a typo and I was not referring to her(sorry about that Spunky).

But this comment got me thinking about names and the name that we want to be called on-line. I wanted to have a really cool name for my blog but frankly I lack the imagination to come up with one. So if any of my friends would like to make suggestions please leave me a comment and I will pick the one that I like the most.

Names can also really hurt us and choosing the right name is very important. I don't want to call anyone by something that they find offensive because that is not my intention (unless I don't like you, in that case you are out of luck). So I vow to come up with a cool name but I do apologize in advance if what I think is cool is so not what you think is cool.

Now I will tell you all what I did this weekend (because you obviously care, and if you don't...well too bad):

1) I took care of two sick babies...The Sexy and La Preciosa were sick over the weekend. My poor husband had to work sick all weekend and I was a single mother this weekend because he had to work on something that is very important for us. This means that I can't bitch about the fact that he was not able to help me that much.

2) I had a very nice get together with Spandex Woman and Spunky on Sunday and we got caught up on our lives and had great pizza made by the husband. (the pizza was awesome with homemade dough)

3) Spend most of the weekend doing laundry and cleaning the kitchen and chasing a snotty, crawling little one around.

So that ladies and gentlemen is my weekend in a nut shell.

Today I am meeting up with my mom friends for drinks and sugar(aka dessert), I am so looking forward to it.

ciao ciao

Bienvenida amiga

Welcome back to my good friend Spandex Woman from touring her home country of the Philippines and other parts of Asia. She was greatly misses by all of us and we are glad that she is back, specially since she brought us gifts.

Yesterday I stayed home with La Preciosa because she had a fever the day before and we wanted to make sure that she was feeling okay. Thankfully she was totally fine and we got to enjoy a beautiful day together and meet up with Spandex Woman. Though as sick as this may sound, I actually missed work ( I know that I am a terrible mother). But really I did, I can honestly say that three weeks ago I was crying to my husband about not wanting to go back to work and leaving the baby. Feeling guilty about putting her in day care and not being with her 24/7 to witness all of the incredible things that she does all day long.

But I can tell you now, after being back at work for 2 weeks that its really not that bad. In fact I admitted to a good friend that I was happy that La Preciosa was in day care because she is at a stage where she needs so much stimulation and though as her mother she can totally get it from me, she can also get it from others. Especially the wonderful women at her day care who care a great deal for all of their "kids".

La Preciosa has so much fun at day care and we have quality time together as a family after work and during the weekends. Its incredible how we appreciate the time that the three of us have together. Weekends are sacred and we take advantage of them. The one thing that we have to figure out is the housework. How I hate housework!

Back to the Grind

Well it looks like I am finally back to work. Yesterday I was introduced to the team that I will be working with and got to go to a couple of meetings that pertained to the project that we will be working on.

I was so happy to finally get to sit with them and take a look at what they have been doing and what is expected of me. How pathetic am I to actually want to work but if I have nothing to do and just surf the web all freaking day it gets SO BORING.

I am one of those persons that though I can spend an entire day at home doing absolutely nothing and love it, I just can't do that at work. So work is fine and only fine. There are still some things that I have to iron out with management but overall I am finally starting to get back in the swing of things. I am also starting to get used to going on the TTC (Toronto subway) during rush hour and walking with the herd of people to The Bank.

Yesterday the Sexy dropped off the baby at day care and left my new stroller there for me to use when I picked her up. Can you believe it that I looked forward to picking up my child not just because I would get to see her but because I would get to use the cool new stroller. How terrible is that. I felt so cool using the new stroller and not having to use the carrier with a squirmy 11-month old. The important thing is that I can now wear uncomfortable shoes to work because I don't have to use the carrier. Hurray for me.

Well I guess that I should go and see if anyone from my team is in and get to work.

Momma got a new set of wheels

Today I purchased what I believe is the best stroller ever. I had said that I would buy the Maclaren but I did some more research and found out about the Silver Cross strollers. They are the competitors to Maclaren but a little bit cheaper.

So La Preciosa has new wheels, it is so cool. What a difference it is to puch this stroller as opposed to the SUV that I was pushing before.

Thats all folks, till tomorrow.

Under Construction

If anyone knows me, they know that I am not computer savy at all. Which means that it will take me a long time to get this blog to look quite decent. So for the time being if you do visit my site I apologize for the way that it looks.

The Sexy is an IT consultant and a wizz with all things techy but this blog is my baby and I feel like I should learn how to make it my own by myself. That is all that I have to say on the issue of the crappy looking blog that I currently have at the moment.

Yesterday I went in search of the perfect umbrella stroller and I think that I found it. I have high demands when it comes to the umbrella stroller which could be were the problems lies but it is what it is. I needed one that was light so that I could pick up the stroller with baby in it and go down subway stairs. It had to be compact because I have storage issues and if possilbe it should have a basket because I live in a neighborhood where you walk to the grocery store, the butcher etc.

Those where my demands and I tell you there is slim picking out there people. At least if you are not willing to spend over $200 for a freaking umbrella stroller. So I think I found it, The Maclaren Volo. Not the cheaperst thing but not the most expensive and it meets my three criteria. I found it at Toys so I will head out later today to pick it up.

In the Beginning

I have finally gotten off my ass to start the blog that I have wanted to start for a long time now. I will begin by introducing myself to all of you, I am Karz (names changed to protect person's identity). My husband The Sexy and I have been married for 4 years but together for over 10. We have a daughter La Preciosa who will be a year in less then a month.

She was the real reason why I wanted to start a blog and how I even came to know about blogs, before her I had no idea about such things (I am so behind the times) and frankly my life was just not that exciting.

Now as a new mother life is certainly exciting to say the least. But I will not bore you will all of the detail of my first year as a mother just yet. Right now I have returned to the working world, it was my first week back at the Bank and like any large financial intitution no one was ready for me. So I did nothing all week long.

I am not sure if I am happy to be back at work or not. I did not like the fact that I did nothing for 5 days and was bored out of my mind. But I am looking forward to getting paid again because mat leave money was just not enough.

That in a nut shell is what happened this week, not very interesting I know but it is what it is. I hope to have more interesting things to say as time goes by. Now I am going to have to say goodbye and nice to meet you because La Preciosa is going down for a nap and I am going to get something to eat.

If you would like to leave me a shout please do so.

Till next time...
