"two, cinco, nine, dix!" he says and I don't argue about it.

"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014"

Couldn't get sweeter than this. 


A blurry morning like this photo was my morning on his first day of school, he was so excited about going out that he didn't let me take a proper picture and ... we were late, so this is all that we have from the day.

Two years went fast! and this year is going bananas too, Can you believe it is July already? Summer is here but sometimes it doesn't look that warm and clear, what I'm loving right now is the rain, reminds me of Mexico, all that we need are a couple of mountains covered with wild jungle and we are all set. Unfortunately Mexico has to wait, my little guy started Day Care aka Pre-K last week, since he has been away for half days for now I have never felt so miserable, I miss him so much, this home is not the same when he is not around, but now it's clean, we don't trip on tiny cars or no one is trying to run over my toes with a bike even Uma misses him [I want to believe] but at the same time I am so happy for him, he loves school, he's making it look like he has been there all his life, his teachers are happy with him, I don't blame them, he is adorable!

The first day of school luckily Jeff happened to be here because of the holidays so we were able to take him together, my heart was sinking with every step closer to the front door, and of course I sobbed my way around the apartment before leaving, and what did Nico do when we left? Absolutely nothing, Not even a tear! according to his teachers. Back at home after a productive morning, we were lost and upset, we didn't have our little guy to take care of, and we were just counting down the time to go and pick him up, when we got there we look throughout the tiny window in his classroom door to have a peek, and there he was, the cutest moment ever! Nico was sitting in this tiny chair and table surrounded by the other kids in class having lunch, I wished I had a camera or something to capture the moment so I'm trying the hardest to keep the visual moment in my head with as much detail as possible, he even let them put a bib on him to eat! [the big fight he already won at home] He was happy to see us but you could tell he had a great time.
It's been so hard for me to go through this separation but as long he is happy I'm okay with it, also I feel happy and lucky to have had the chance to spend all this time being silly and cuddling when there is a lot of moms out there not having the same benefits, I guess now it's time for me to go back out there to the scary and real world.

P.s. Potty training was suggested by the staff to give it a pause until Nico is totally adjusted to the change.

Sweet dreams my boy.
