Ahh it’s valentines’ a day! I was trying to teach Olivia what Valentine’s Day is. Although it is a “commercialized” holiday targeted for couples, the original meaning was letting people know how much you love them and appreciate them. I taught Olivia how to make Valentine’s cards for people we care about to show them we think of them. Also watching the YouTube videos on crafty baked treats didn’t hurt to watch either.

My daughter is in a new random stage of compliments. This is an unexpected phase but she is teaching me a valuable lesson about Valentine’s Day. All in the little things we say that can change a person’s day. A genuine compliment or letting someone know how you feel about them can mean so much more than a fancy present. We should always let our loved ones know how much we care about them no matter what day it is.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!! Thanks for reading 🙂

Onetime we went to a restaurant while there was a young couple on a date. Occasionally they would glance over to us maybe cause it was a foreshadowing of what could happen years in the future for them or they couldn’t hear each other with the sounds of our kids constantly overpowering their conversation.

On the drive back I told my husband that i felt a little bad cause we might have been too loud.
Then I thought, maybe the thought of having children scared them off prematurely or made them realize…somewhere down the road they want kids but…with each other? Who knows…
Sorry to the couple if we scared you with the thought of having kids. However, if you realize that you are both wanting kids together someday, you’re welcome.

 

Times when I look at my daughter I see a mini version of myself. She loves playing dress up, loves princesses and robots, etc. she is a little nerd in the making. We both love dresses and the nerdy figurines.

My son adores his sister but I don’t think he likes being the prince during play time. He is busy exploring the room and when daddy comes home he squeals for daddy. I’m guessing he probably babbles in his own way on how he doesn’t like our princess tea parties. Hahaha.

On another side note, I’m making more progress on drawing with my iPad. I am still experimenting with more coloring and drawing mediums. I am pleased with these results.

I’m trying to teach my daughter the difference between right and left. Oneway I know she will have to learn how to cross the street with me without me constantly carrying her and second, she still doesn’t have the full sense of direction.

I would point at something and she would stare blankly into space.
It’s funny how we don’t realize how easy things come to us as we get older. Meanwhile there are these little beings who are still learning everything. Each thing they learn is new.

Sense of direction is a skill set that we don’t realize. Except now and then I still need my GPS now and then. Ha.

Ahh timeouts. I really don’t like giving them but it needs to be done at times. I can’t even count how many timeouts my daughter has but when I was trying to think of ideas for my comic, timeouts reminded me of those signs at a warehouse.

I wonder what age do you have to be until timeouts are no longer in force?

On another different subject, this is my first attempt at using my new drawing tablet. I’m still trying to get the hang of it. This is my 3rd try at drawing my comics. I find that I’m slowly progressing. For those wondering which tablet I am using, it’s the iPad pro. I find it easier to use compared to my previous tablet where I felt like I was doing more blind contour drawings again.

It’s pretty awesome, but that’s just my own review of it.

I don’t like bugs and since we moved to a warmer country, it feels like a I’m watching “a bug’s life” movie. When I lived in Alberta and I would watch shows about bugs on some nature channel I would laugh and say to myself, “Ha, glad I don’t have to deal with THOSE bugs.”

I guess it’s karma.

I never used to be scared of bugs as a kid but I became scared of them as I got older.

I often get “BUGGED”  by my husband and family to get over my fear.( Yes…I was trying to be funny.)

For now, my kids are amused by my icky dance. I didn’t know I had one until my kids were laughing and wondering why I was jumping around trying to squish a huge bug in my kitchen.

At least it makes them laugh even though I squirm on the inside. Ha.
