We received several bags of hand me down clothes for Mia (18 months-4T) from a co-worker of Manny's, which was SO nice, and it was very exciting to pull out the 18 month Spring line! ;) (I am not one of those people who is too good for hand me downs, EVER! :)) There are some dresses in the mix that have a vintage feel (and definitely remind me of something my mom would have put me in when I was young)! I can't wait for Mia to wear them. I'm thinking about one of them possibly being her Easter dress, but I haven't decided yet. Either way, she will look like a doll, I'm sure! :)
Manuel is LOVING the nicer weather and being able to get outside and ride his bike. Once it gets a tad warmer we are going to work with him on taking the training wheels off his bike (that Santa brought). He's excited. I'm a nervous wreck just thinking about it. But that's nothing unusual! ;) We have this official Kindergarten registration next Friday (March 25th). I can't believe it! My baby! :( He is VERY excited to be attending summer camp (at his preschool) this year! It's only an extra $10/week but considering how much they do, it's REALLY worth it! And I figure that it will give him one final summer hurrah before he starts his 13+ years of schooling! :)
Hubby is continuning to work his butt off for our family! I couldn't be more thankful! It's nice to be fully confident in your job, be awesome at what you do, and be recognized for the level of your work. A lot has changed for hubby recently (in regards to how people treat him at work) and his hardwork and amazing work ethic is finally being noticed by the "higher-ups" YAY!!!! :)
My job seems to be "stable" for now...I work in the mortgage industry so really, "stable" is a very loose term to not really mean much of anything. For today, I still have my job (Thank God!) and hopefully it will remain that way, however, I can say with certainty that if we have another slow month one of us (my co-worker or I) will be gone. Even though I have been here longer, she doesn't have a family or a husband so her schedule is pretty much open and flexible, so I THINK I'd be let go before her, but I guess only God knows that! :) So for now, I'm grateful to still be employed and contributing to the well being of my family! :) (financially speaking). I'm spending the night away from Mia for the very first time this coming Saturday (eekkkk!) I know I deserve it, and it's okay for Mommy's to get away, but I do feel bad and am definitely going to miss her (and Manuel too, of course! :)) but it's just one night, less then 15 hours away from them, so I'll manage! Every year my friend Lauren hosts a "Girls Night In" at her house, with a theme and the whole nine yards. This year the theme is Post St. Patty's Day. We are going to have a great time! :) I can't wait!
