Cupcakes for Charles


February 26, 2014

Charles is a very picky eater. Today, when he asked me he wanted to eat cupcakes I never hesitated to bake Classic Yellow cupcakes. Boy! Charles could not wait until the cupcakes are done so he licked the bowl where I mixed the batter. He also kept on saying; hmmm the smell is making me hungry when the cupcakes are baking in the oven. It is always good to hear when Charles asks for specific food to eat instead of asking him what to eat every meal. 

With Charles going to school this year it is surely going to be a problem with his eating habits. He does not like to eat vegetables, he eats three different types of fruits (banana, blueberries, strawberry) and very particular when it comes to chicken and fries the way it is cooked. He does not drink orange juice or hot chocolate at all. This morning, I asked him if he wanted to drink my hot chocolate for breakfast (Milo & Nido combined) and he said; only when it is snowing. 

Charles is very funny and getting wise at the same time. While laying in bed this afternoon, I was yawning and he said; go to sleep, go to sleep, so he can use my phone instead of his iPhone. He’s been trying to get us to log in our password for our iTunes account so he can buy games when he is using the phones.

Charles is Being Old Soul


February 25, 2014

A few days ago, I was painting my toenails with Cover Girl’s nail polish, Hot Cocoa and I don’t liked the color as much as I wanted to on my toes. I said; Oh Charles I don’t liked it then he replied; well you have two choices, you can keep it or you can return it. I thought it was very funny the way Charles responded to me. Being around my son, Charles 24/7 seems like I have a teenager now. 

He’s very opinionated in a very smart way, extremely funny and always puts a good laugh in the family. While I was getting my nails done, he was looking at his album (baby pictures) and saw his ultrasound pictures. Then he asked me. How did they took my picture when I was inside your belly? I said; I don’t know I never think about it how they got your pictures taken when you’re inside my tummy. 

Aside from that, Charles is being old soul now as he likes to listen to Hotel California, and New Kid in Town, by The Eagles over and over again on his iPhone. Hotel California, is one of my favorite songs and I am glad he likes it as well.

Clinic for Methadone Rehab


February 11, 2014

Recently I was watching one of those addiction shows on TV, you know the ones were they show family members trying to get a family member to address their drug addictions. I think many of these families need to find a good clinic for methadone rehab, near them. Beating addictions a never something that is easy or can be done alone on an island. You need people that understand and can help you.

Chuy's Mexican Restaurant

What a busy weekend I had with my family. We watched Lego movie and we all liked it a lot. Inside the theater for Lego movie it was full of kids and adults as well. All the kids enjoyed the movie and so did we. Charles eating popcorn and M&M’s was the best part of watching the movie. It is a great way with a kid to kept them busy. While we’re out we had our dinner at newly opened Chuy’s Mexican restaurant here in town. 

When we arrived at the restaurant it was already crowded and we waited for 2 hours which was a very long wait just to eat. Doug, and I thought the food was good. Perhaps waiting for 2 hours made us starved so we had no time to complain about the food though the service was excellent. Whether you are planning to take your family to eat especially with a kid on a Friday and Saturday nights this is not the best restaurant to eat at. 

Waiting for one hour to 2 hours is just a very long wait and many customers had already left. While we were waiting, many of the customers are already drinking beers and margaritas even though the place was crowded at the waiting area and with the kids around. Besides, the sound system is just so loud and we can’t barely hear our conversation. This is not the ideal restaurant for a date night especially when on your first date, just saying. 

Anyway, this week is going to be very busy weekend for my hubby and the wrestling team. The State Wrestling Tournament is this week, Doug’s team hopefully will do really well as they have had a good season.
