In My Arms

Today I was listening to the Christian station on my phone, when I came across a beautiful song by Plumb, called In My Arms. Below are the lyrics and beneath that is the video. Enjoy!

“In My Arms”

Your baby blues

So full of wonder

Your curly cues

Your contagious smile

And as i watch

You start to grow up

All I can do

is hold you tight

Knowing clouds will rage in

Storms will race in

 But you will be safe in my arms

 Rains will pour down

 Waves will crash around

 But you will be safe in my arms

 Story books are full of fairy tales

 Of kings and queens and the bluest skies

 My heart is torn just in knowing

 You’ll someday see the truth from lies

When the clouds will rage in

Storms will race in

But you will be safe in my arms

Rains will pour down

Waves will crash around

But you will be safe in my arms

Castles – they might crumble

Dreams may not come true

But you are never all alone

‘Cause I will always,

Always love you

Hey I,

Hey I,

When the clouds will rage in

Storms will race in

But you will be safe in my arms

Rains will pour down

Waves will crash around

But you will be safe in my arms,

In my arms.

Being a Mom has Made me so Tired…

  

Last night I was in bed by 11pm. I fell asleep soon after, just to wake up around 12:30am because my son was coughing. My husband got up to give him water but he couldn’t stop coughing. I got up and gave him his two asthma pumps and the cough stopped. I went back to bed and woke up at 6am when my son called me saying his nose was bleeding. The bleeding took a while to stop. I climbed back into bed at 6:20am. Husband then got up around 6:30am because our son was having trouble breathing through one side of his nose. He came to bed and I went to check on him agin. His right nostril was still clogged. I sprayed it with saline water and had him blow his nose. After, I came back to bed. He then wakes up at 8am asking to watch cartoons and for cereal. At this point I’m dragging myself, trying not to collapse! Husband & I continue taking turns tending to him. Now I’m laying in bed completely exhausted while hubby makes us coffee. I must say though, I wouldn’t trade any of this in. I’ll continue waking up every couple of hours to care for my son and check up on him. He’s my world. He makes me so happy. It makes the exhaustion all the more worth it 😊.

Proud Mommy Moment

Every Saturday my husband & I take our son to pre-k prep class at the library. The teacher reads stories, then they go into the classroom and make art projects pertaining to the stories they all heard. They also learn their alphabets, colors, etc. At the end of the class, they get sheets of homework that we can do at home. They aren’t collected, it’s just for learning purposes. Also during the week, I have my son do activities in a pre-k book I bought for him, so he can learn outside of the classroom as well.

Today was one of the days where we sit down together and do some work. I  helped my son with his cat in the hat homework, where he had to draw objects he would like to put away in a red box and a fill in the blank worksheet. After he was done, I asked him to write his name on the back of each paper. Until today, he hasn’t been able to write his name all by himself. So of course when he did it today, I was beside myself! The smile on his face was priceless as well. He was so proud of himself 😄. This is what hard work and dedication accomplishes. I’m so proud of him! I’m definitely going to have him write his name everyday until he gets better, along with some other smaller words. It’s a great feeling knowing that you are able to teach your child something, along with the classes you put them in, to better their learning and understanding. 



Put on your socks

“Nathaniel, your feet are freezing! Go put on your socks.”

“But I don’t want to wear those socks!”

*He runs into the living room, trying to put on some socks he had on for church yesterday. Although I don’t see him, I know what he is doing*

“Don’t you put on those socks! Come put on your house socks.”

“Aw man! You’re good at this mommy.”

“Yes Nathaniel, I’m good at being a mommy.”

Hahahaha 😂. Gotta love him!

Pizza Bagels

Today for lunch, we decided to have something different. I saw we had Lender’s bagels, tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Instantly I thought, pizza! My son was so excited, because he’s never had pizza bagels. I mean come on, pizza with a hole in the middle?! Awesome-sauce right?! It’s also so simple to make! I was in charge of putting the tomato sauce, while my son put the cheese.
