That past year sure has been a crazy one. It started off with a trip to Disneyland which lead to having an emergency surgery and being off work for two weeks. Many changes at work happened and the biggest one is taking place in a mere day. I rekindled this blog and hope to continue to make it grow again. I made new friends, which are like family to me.
The new year has just started and I have many exciting things to look forward to. My sister is getting married in April and she has chosen Hawaii as the spot. I’m very excited for her and it will be my first time to Hawaii. In May it will be 2o years since I fell in love with my favorite band every year they hold a huge celebration in their hometown and I am making the trip this year for the second time. It will be a celebration to end all celebrations and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I also have a few other wonderful things happening this year but I can’t talk about those just yet.
Here is a too a great 2017 and the memories that we will create!

When you wake up one day and your baby is no longer a baby but a little man and you can’t help but wonder where the time went.
My son is now six years old and healthy. There was a time not so long ago that he was tiny and not healthy. Having been born early, he struggled with many basic things, sucking on the bottle, breathing, and overall development. The first few years were the worst. He wouldn’t sleep because he couldn’t breath. His speech was non existent to where every day was struggle. I cried myself to sleep many a night but stayed strong for him because he needed me more than ever.
After many years of struggling there was a light at the end of the tunnel. A doctor suggested he have his adenoids taken out. My son’s adenoids where twice the size that they should be and they were causing the trouble breathing, walking, talking, eating and more.
The surgery was a success! My son was able to walk, talk, eat and breath like a normal kid. He was so happy and proud of himself! We all were!
Life has gotten easier for both of us. The daily struggles that once were are no longer as hard. He still struggles with speech and he has been diagnosed with ADHD but nothing we can’t handle.
Are you patriotic? What does being patriotic mean to you?
I would like to think that I am patriotic. I love my country and while I don’t always wave a flag, I do vote and I do care about what is going on in my country. As a mother I hope to instill the love for our country in my son. In hopes that he will someday love our country too.

Are writing prompts a useful exercise, or do you find them to be too limiting and/or hokey?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SNEAKY.
I think the writing prompts are useful in that they get you do write about something that you wouldn’t normally write about. But at the same time it can be something that is always there for you to write about. An easy way out sorta speak. Not to say that I do like to take part in them because I do enjoy reading what others have written about. And yes the daily prompt can be a little hokey but sometimes you need a little hokey in your life.

Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO!
We spent the night looking at the stars from atop his car in the parking lot. He had the most deep blue colored eyes I had ever seen. His smile was heart melting and His touch was gentle. We spent most of the night enjoying the silence that surrounded us. The night sky was so beautiful that words would just ruin the moment.
When we realized that morning had come we both looked at each other and knew exactly what each other was thinking. Time for breakfast. We found a local diner and settled down in tiny booth near the back and our wordless conversation continued over black coffee and blueberry pancakes. We spent the rest of the morning walking along the beach and smelling the fresh air.
He took me back to my place and were we finally said wow that was amazing. Almost at the same time. Then the silence fell and we soon found ourselves wanting each other.We made our way to the bed room and… I won’t go into details about the hours afterward. I think you get the picture. I will leave you with this, he is one hell of a great kisser.

Do you consider yourself funny? What role does humor play in your life? Who’s the funniest person you know?
I consider myself to be funny and a little sarcastic. I grew up in a household that was always laughing and having a good time. We can be pretty sarcastic at times. I don’t know who the funniest person I know is but I do know many. And humor as always played a huge part in my life. Without it life would be too serious and people wouldn’t laugh and have a good time.

What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?
Yes, being a successful blogger is something I strive for. And being successful to me is writing a blog that has meaning. Even if its just to one person. I write because I enjoy sharing little slices of my experiences with others.
When I started this blog I had a clear vision of what I wanted to write about and then I got of topic and now I am trying to get back on track with my vision. I will have success when I finally get back to the vision. I do need more views each day, which is increasing and I hope to see them go up and up. Which I am sure they will.

The New York Times is going to feature your blog on its home page, and you’ve been asked to publish a new post — it’ll be the first thing tens of thousands of new readers see. Write it.
That is what we has parents try to do with our children. We want to install good values in our children when they are young to they grow up to be well around adults. I saw this picture on Facebook and it got me thinking are either one of these pictures really bad. No, was the answer I concluded with after a few minutes of thinking.
The picture on the left is good because many apps found on smart phones these days can help kids learn math, reading,and other valuable skills. The phone it self will teach the child about technology and how to use the technology. Which is something they are going to have use in every day life as they get older.
The picture on the right is shows that you want to teach your children how to be caring individuals and also about respect. Caring for animals is good way to install those values. There are many other ways to install these values and I am not saying other ways are wrong I was just giving some examples based off pictures. Every parent has their own way of showing their kids things that they feel their kids need to know. I am not an expert and nor do I want to be. I just saw the picture and it made me think.
*Side note I am re posting this from earlier this month. I liked it so much I thought I would use it for the Daily Prompt.*

We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours?
The one thing that keeps me even is music. I listen to music almost 24 hours a day. Music helps keeps me calm while I drive and focused while I am at work. Even keeps me motivated while I am cleaning the house. The style of music doesn’t matter as long as it has a good beat and good lyrics I’m good. Music calms my son down too. When he is wailing about and not wanting to listen. If I start singing or if I turn some music on he instantly stops to listen and after a few minutes he is calm enough to pay attention to me again. Its amazing the effect music has over people sometimes and I’m glad it does because I won’t be the same without it.

Right now at this very moment I’m putting off getting out bed for the day. It’s really early in the morning and my three year is wide wake. So I guess I have to be too.
