How time flies… I can’t believe that today Felipe started 4th grade and Francesca goes to 2nd. I feel like just yesterday I was dropping Felipe off in Pre-K. This school year will bring new adventures as they both embark on a voyage through the Gifted Program. I will try to continue to post on a more regular basis. Until next time!
So this past weekend we took a trip to Tampa.
Today we just wanted to relax after Felipe’s first communion. Adrian told me that he was going to Big Lots to buy something to attach to the hose so the kids could play. When he came back he had an above ground pool in his trunk. The kids were so happy that they couldn’t wait for it to be filled up.
On Christmas Day we embarked on a trip that we had been planning for years and finally was becoming a reality. Three families were on their way to Tennessee.
Four years ago to the minute mommy and daddy were on their way out to Costco to buy a few things to celebrate your brother’s 2nd birthday. We had waited to the last minute because we did not know when you would make your grand entrance. Little did I know that we would never make it there because you wanted to get out. My contractions started at around 11:15 am and 12 hours later I was holding you in my arms.
Today, my princess, I wanted to wish you the best in everything you do.
Today was Felipe’s last day of Kindergarten…

You would think that he was happy school was over but that was far from the truth… He was actually very upset because he wouldn’t get to see any of his friends anymore especially his “girlfriends” Alessandra and Salome. Mind you, Salome is a fifth-grader that was always saying hello to him whenever she saw him.
The only joyful thing about Felipe ending school is that Francesca started doing a happy dance because that meant that come August she was starting school also. I have never seen a child so excited to start school.
Now as the summer begins and the kids enjoy their time off I have the task of purchasing school supplies for two kids. I am so excited that both my children will be enjoying school next year.
Last night Felipe was really tired so I laid in his bed with him but I was only there for about 3 minutes because he fell asleep immediately.
He had asked me to sing Arrurru to him but I didn’t even get through the whole song before I heard him snoring. When I mentioned it to him this morning he told me… “Sorry mom but I muted my ears and didn’t hear anything”.
He comes up with the funniest things
Today I was taking Felipe to school and since I didn’t have to go to work I had Francesca with me also in the car.
The conversation goes like this…
Felipe: Is daddy 37?
Felipe: Why is daddy not like you?
Me: He is, I am also 37.
Felipe: No, why isn’t daddy like you?
Francesca: What… Tiny?
They both start to laugh and I call Adrian to tell him and he tells me that I am not tiny I am just vertically challenged.
The most interesting part of all this is that I still don’t know what Felipe meant by his question.
This past Saturday I attended a friend’s baby shower. The day that I got the invitation I showed it to Adrian and told him about it. The kids overheard me so they asked what a Baby Shower was. Then with all the innocence that exists in their mind and hearts they came up with their own answer… Apparently at a baby shower you get a baby and each guests showers a different part of the child.
I thought it was so funny but I explained to them that you “shower” the parents-to-be with gifts for the new baby they are expecting… They understood that it was a party so I left it at that but a few days later when I went to buy the gifts Francesca insisted I buy shampoo and soap because that is what you need for a shower. So it was the running joke, whenever someone me about my plans for Saturday I would say that I was going to shower a baby.
