I have loved being a Mother more than any experience so far. I say that with the utmost respect to those that have tried and are currently trying to get pregnant. My own experiences with the many women in my life who have at one point mothered me and loved me through my childhood--no less of a mother any of them. To them I will be forever indebted and grateful, so much that each one of them has left their imprint within my heart.Grace Serrano (my wonderful mother)Luisa ZarateMaria ZarateMargarita MaldonadoSusan FitzpatickAmalia Zarate
I am so ready for the weekend and feel such a sense of relief when Friday comes around. I'm taking time this weekend to cook up a special dinner and some yummy desserts. This week was a bit rough and I just want to take time to slow down, hug my kids and husband a little tighter, and really just be with them. So I'm going to set the table tonight and take out the fine china (tee-hee). Who knows, maybe we'll do backwards dinner again (we do it about twice a year). It's where we have dessert first and then the main dish. Anyways, here's to Friday night dinners and lazy Saturday mornings =)Hugs, Lucy

Hey There Gorgeous!It's early Saturday morning and I'm sitting here on the living room couch blogging and trying to catch up with all of my favorite TV shows. Recently I got over having kidney stones and TV fell off the periphery (gotta love DVR). Which brings me to my next topic of conversation--pain. I mean, don't get me wrong, pain is important--necessary--essential even. Without it, you wouldn't know that there was something wrong with you. So as a hommage to pain I would like to break it down for you in 3 easy to swallow capsules. And here it is: The 3 Levels Of Pain. The first one I shall call a level 1 pain. This is where you'll turn to your husband and say something like, ...

Aiden this letter is all about you. The truth is that I was very scared to have kids. I really thought I would be fine if I didn't have any children at all. I thought I wouldn't be a good mommy and therefore, I didn't want to fail. I know that people always say that children change you, but in my case, this was so very true. Through your eyes and your open heart you have taught me so very many things, things one day I hope to explain fully. But for now, I want--I need for you to know that you and Giselle helped heal a very big piece of my heart. You taught me that love not only continues to grow exponentially, but that if one stops resisting you can grow as well. I'm still learning, still ...
