aztalamantez Since Gia started taking a lunch (around three) each day I write a note on the back of a picture and put it in her lunchbox. This year has been especially grit building and this week felt like the words of Bob Dylan so clearly provided articulation to what she and I both need to hear. #parentingishardman #everyoneneedsag #youtrytostealhersparkleyouwillfaceme #mommabear 6d

aztalamantez Happy birthday, Eddie! I guess the fact that you and I are now so close could possibly be seen as a testament to your awesomeness- given how mean you were....so happy with the way our families and lives are...we're a mini version of Parenthood. 2w

aztalamantez Luke, Happy Birthday sweet boy. We spent today building lego sets (which is remarkably similar labor- painful, exhausting, down right awful at times but TOTALLY worth the reveal of the sweet smile on your face at the end...), eating waffles, cuggling Mimi and Popa, and just plain celebrating the awesomeness of you. The charisma that you have been blessed with can only be described as magnetic, infectious, and delightful. It is with great pride that I watch you mature and learn about the responsibility you have been handed with such a quality. You are creating a life that is so giving and loving to others. Your spirit is competitive, full of live, and rambunctious yet you can so easily slow down, savor the moment, notice and be gracious with the most minuscule of details. Your heart is inclusive and kind. I am beyond thankful to call you my boy. I love you so. XOXO, Momma 3w

aztalamantez I always enjoy supporting small businesses and this one is my favorite- if you are in the market for a Lego set builder I have nothing but shining reviews for Master Builder located in McKinney. The owner, William, provides fair pricing and timely quality service- with a smile!! Call Master Builder William today! #savingthismomssanity #luketheduke #wpmfuturepaleontologist 3w

aztalamantez Things said to me by my four year old today (who’s brain is clearly not wired like mine): 1. “I don’t mean to hurt your feelings....BUT, you’re doing it wrong.” 2. “No, really. You’re doing it wrong.”
3. “Here...let me have it.” 4. “It’s ok mommy, you can just do it like that.” 5. "Mommy, I'm just going to tell you something. You see that piece right there? If you would stop touching it, the rest of it would stop falling apart."
6. "It goes the other way, Mommy."
7. "It's ok mommy, sometimes I get confused about pieces like that too. Just take a deep breath...and your time."
7. “That’s a pretty good job, Mommy.” 8. “I love it, Mommy! It’s your own creation.” 9. “Mommy, did I do a good job being thankful for what I have instead of complaining?” Clearly I am not a master builder (BUT he did ask me to build that whole dang set)....
