Sharing heart felt moments

I came home from work yesterday and my husband started telling about his day with the kids.  Hiking, basketball practice for my little one and a pick-up basketball game for my eldest.  My eldest's coach for basketball was at the pick-up game chatting with husband and mentioned something that really touched my heart.  He said that during the draft day, every coach wanted my son on their team, however they didn't know his name.  Our coach remembered his number during the draft day and put that on his list. He told my husband that he was excited when he saw us during the first day of practice because he got what he wanted. I was so touched by this that it made me tear. The word proud is not enough to describe my emotions.  I do want to mention that the other team members are soooo amazing, as well. I am really impressed on how they have a handle of the sport; each having their own strength contributing to every game they play. Every game have been fun and some were very intense. I am not only proud of my son, but for the whole team. The emotional moment doesn't stop here.  As we were getting in the car to go out last night, my eldest assisted my youngest into his car seat.  My little one then kissed and hugged his brother and said, " I love you" and goes on to say, " he's my brother." Heart melter?   Oh gosh, my heart melted like chocolates :)  A mental picture that I will always remember.

A proud mama I am

I have two boys an 8 and an 4 year old who keep me and my husband on our toes constantly.  I have to admit that the moments that they make you sooo proud out weights all the times when they don't listen.

Benjamin, my 8 year old, is such a natural athlete.  He is currently at a rec. basketball and every week I look forward to seeing him play. For me there's no single word to describe how good he plays. All I can say is that he is an amazing, amazing player. Of course I can say that because he is my son :).   People have actually noticed him play and have come up to us complimenting his skills.  Of course as a parent, compliments about him make my heart swell.  He has been called fast and scrappy. He also has the interest in soccer, swimming and breakdancing; all of which he loves to do.

Mateo is my 4 year old.  He enjoys dancing.  He is currently at a hip hop class for toddlers and it has been amazing to see him engage with other kids and actually follow very simple dance routines.  The first time he actually follow through with a dance routine was 2 weeks ago.  Mateo was elated to have been able to follow the teacher and seeing him accomplished that made me tear.

As parents we have our battles with our children and we choose the ones to tackle.  But, it only takes one action, one word, one moment from their part to make you proud of your children that marks the heart.

The only things that show are the links they are following.  So please set up your link to your blog so that people can follow you as well, once they have followed you.  Here is how:

1. Follow a blogger.

3. Before you click "follow this blog", click to "more options" right next to the box.

A new home for my blog

So, here I am on the blogger. I don't know why I didn't use this for my blog before, but glad that I tried it and liking it so far.  If you were a follower of mine before on my old blog, kindly follow me here instead if you wish.  

Since I have left my old blog to dry, I have been focusing a lot on just designing and creating pretty much what I want. I am adding a little bit more on my etsy shop as I finished the items.  I don't remember who told me that I need to find my niche in order increase my sale on my shop, but I didn't really look into it until recently. I posted on a thread on my etsy teams on how to do this and I did get some suggestions that are very helpful.  One in particular that I wanted to share with you all.  It is a free 5 day e-course giving you instructions about social media. I am hoping that this will help increase traffic my shop. Check it out. If you go on their website, they also have other information in regards to becoming a successful  entrepreneur (did i spell that right? too lazy to do spell check:(

I have also started on Kaboodle.  I have to say I kind a like the "kaboodling". One of my list on kaboodle is on the side bar.  These are the items that i liked that have been discovered by other kaboodlers.

Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me and we will see what happens :)

thanks for the support!

 Here is the link to the above e-course :
