Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. We went to a friend's birthday party where S got to play on a slip and slide, swung around on a tree rope and kicked around a soccer ball all day long. It was also his first time beating a pinata to near death. What is it about kids and pinatas? Do they just have this built up aggression bottled inside all their little bodies they need to get out? Or do they really want to see what's inside the pinata? I don't know, but each of the kids were so eager for their turn with the bat.

These past few days, we keep driving by tents being set up for pumpkin patches. Seeing all the orange, black and white buntings and the hay stacks was a little bit of a shock because I didn't realize we were so close to the holiday season already! Can YOU believe we're getting ready for Halloween? This means I need to start thinking about Halloween costumes, and I need to think fast!

Baby YumYums: Beech-Nut

Since having our baby four and a half years ago, the baby world has changed a lot. We already had it pretty good, but these days I see the new baby products and I'm actually jealous! It's no surprise that mommies and daddies are coming up with new things that work better for their children. More comfortable seats, lunch boxes that keep foods warm, bibs that are comfortable and practical at the same time.. the list is endless. Beech-Nut baby food is no exception! I so wish we had this back in the day (haha it feels like a long time ago).

Balloon Works

What's a party without any balloons? Ok maybe that's not entirely true, but they are a fun addition! And these days, a lot of photoshoots involve balloons too because they add a fun pop of color, and they seriously come in all sorts of colors and shapes and forms now. We all know about regular latex balloons, you know, the ones you can get at a grocery store. And lately, everyone's been introduced to round latex balloons which comes in many sizes. But I wanted to show you all these other kinds because there are so many great ways to use balloons!

On The Shelf

Today is the first day of the last year of preschool for our little guy. The end of summer means I am back to blogging! I apologize for the sporadic blodding over the summer break, but having S home everyday means full-time mommyhood so I'm very grateful for your patience and understanding. It was a great summer. And unlike a lot of my other mommy friends, I felt like it flew by too quickly. For some reason I feel like S was just in school a week ago and now I'm packing his book bag again. Must be the old age because apparently the older you get the quicker time seems to pass by *sigh*.

Has your little one ever liked a character or toy that you did not think was all that cute or cool? HA! If you answered "no never!" to that, then wow I salute you! So far, our (as in our little dude's) mini obsession has been with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT). And let's admit it, most hardcore boy-toys are on the lower end of the cute spectrum. TMNT included.

Our Life Photographed: More of Summer

This summer we've enjoyed a month of summer school (we tried a parent-participation program so I got to watch S interact with other people and explore the outdoors), we've done some crafting at home including our DIY puzzle, Kiwi Crate projects, flag-making for July 4th decorations and making our very own book. We've devoured a lot of summer fruits including berries, peaches and watermelon (S and his daddy's favorite!), and we even squeezed fresh OJ from oranges in our backyard.

Capturing Siblinghood

Even though all siblings fight and most days involve parents wanting to pull their hair out because of all the screaming, pushing and none-sharing, these tender moments that reflect the unconditional love that only siblings share make it all worthwhile. I can't imagine my life without my little sister. She is and will always be the person I want to run to with gossip or for advice. I want to tell her everything all the time and all my favorite memories of childhood involve my little sister. Life is just better when you have that forever companionship.

Mama-On-The-Go!

This summer has been super busy thus far with the summer classes, water play and park play-dates. I now understand the necessity of constant sun-block lotion application and I also know why most toddlers and kids become dark-skinned over the summer no matter how you try to avoid it. With all this outdoor play, this mama has realized that usual outfits don't really work and aren't very practical. There is mud, sand and dirt at the summer school, there is mud, sand and dirt at parks. Flats get so dirty and sandals mean I go home with dusty feet.

ChitterChatter: Watching TV Ain't All That Bad.

I admit I was one of those moms who was very careful about my kid watching TV at a young age. But now that the little guy is four, all the careful rules are a lot more relaxed. And maybe because of where we are now, it makes me wonder if all those restrictions were necessary. I wonder if we did it all over again, I'd do things in exactly the same way. I know a lot of parents are a lot more relaxed when the second (third, fourth etc.) kid comes along.
