Layered Up :: Tux Dress & Turtleneck

Hi Loves! 

Happy Wednesday. We are slowly getting used to our current state before things take another turn. Right now, it’s just me and the kids and doing the mom life alone with two kids is a complete different story than with one. Will probably write more on that later. 
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably already know I did something that in hindsight was probably a bad idea. I took both kids to the movies to see Black Panther by myself. Let’s just say those days are long gone. When Emmanuel was younger, it worked fine, but not anymore since he’s active and walking. With all the ups and down and trying to keep him quiet while he stuffs his throat with popcorn (if you saw my story, you know he is not a quiet eater), let’s just say I missed half of the movie. So, with a much needed break anyway because this girl is exhausted right now, I am planning a me time on Friday. This will involve getting my long overdue hair done, a long overdue pedicure, lunch for one and probably go see the movie alone this time. Hoping to get all these done before picking the kids up, so we can all have a wonderful weekend now that mom’s needs are taking care off.

 Kudos to all the single moms out there holding it down with multiple kids and to those who have their spouses away for long period of time. Just this last year while hubby was getting his MBA, he was away for 2 weeks every 3 months. Then it was just me and Eliana and the bump (Emmanuel). I thought those were hard days being pregnant with a toddler and alone. With that, since I knew when he was going to be gone and for how long, I would usually take vacation days Thursday/Friday so I wasn’t working the whole week. With this, it is different. Not knowing the exact duration and knowing I will need my vacation days for upcoming activities, I don’t really have that luxury. So 5 days’ work week and two kids coupled with some extra activities is no easy feat. 
Counting down the days, counting down!
