Ten Thoughts Friday

1. I could call it Thank God it is Friday, but when you are a stay at home Mom, all days are the same….

2. Last weekend as a 3 day weekend, becasue of May 1st.

3. We had some fun, ate cotton candy, went out for lunch, and went on some rides (mini roller coaster)

4. Sunday was Mother’s Day here, we went to visit some family in a different city and to put some flowers on my Grandma’s grave. On the way there we stopped at my favorite bakery (in the whole country). I had coffee, baked cheesecake and ice cream πŸ™‚



4. BB#1 came down with a fever sunday night.

5. So during the first part of the week he was at home with us, he went back to school on Thursday.

6. BB#2 finally started playing with Lego Duplos, so I went out to buy him 2 new boxes πŸ™‚

One of them has ducks in it. I am probably as excited to play with them as he is. HA-HA.

7. The best news of the week is: BB#2 was accepted to the pre-school we were hoping for. Hurray!

8. Now we have to start potty training soon, becasue he can only start once he is potty trained.

9. Finally the weather is better, but again we went from winter to summer, it was 30 Celsius this week.

10. Saturday I will go to another baby rummage sale. Wish me luck.

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Last week was BB#1’s last ice-skating class. He is really good, he got an A.

2. This week they will go bowling and from next week they will be swimming, till the end of school year.

3. The weekend was busy. Saturday morning we attended a birthday party.

4. Saturday afternoon BB#1 went to a Easter crafts afternoon.

5. Sunday I went to the Farmers Market, where I attended a Cupcake Decorating Workshop. It was really fun. I will do a separate post about it.

6. Today I went to have coffee with the girls at our friend’s Cafe called Manuel.

7. I had a Cookies Latte and a croissant, BB#2 had a lemonade.


8. Then BB#2 had a play date with his little friend who is a girl. This was there 2nd date, and it looks like they are getting along, so finally we have a friend, who is our age πŸ™‚

9. Spring break for BB#1 starts Thursday.

10. Tomorrow is our appointment at the Pediatric Cardiology Private Practice. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. My Poor Dad’s car was broken into 😦 They broke one of the windows and took his bag with all his papaers, bank card in it 😦

And all this happend during day time in the afternoon, he was parked in front of his own garage 😦

2. Also yesterday they planted a new tree in front of our building. I am all for more green, less concrete πŸ™‚ But By this morning the tree was gone 😦 I guess they are also stealing trees. Strange.

3. My pregnant friend finally gave birth Friday. She was 4 days overdue. She finally had to have a C-section. She is now a Mommy to a baby Boy πŸ™‚

4. I went to visit her in the hospital that afternoon, but I haven’t seen the Baby yet. I cannot wait to hold this little Boy πŸ™‚

5. Saturday we went to visit one of our friends. BB#2 was not having a good day, he would not go into the house. I could take his shoes off after 10 minutes, than I had to sit with him in my lap for another 30 minutes with his hat and coat on 😦

6. Yesterday we started spring shopping for BB#1. He got 2 pants and a T-Shirt.

7. Tomorrow will be the last Ice-skating class for BB#1, and finally parents can go and watch. I am excited, I haven’t seen him skate yet.

8. Also on wednesday we have a play date for BB#2. We don’t know many kids his age. We had to cancel last week because he got a runny nose.

9. Last week coffee with friends was cancelled, but finally today I got to go for coffee with 1 friend. We went to a strudel shop that is kid friendly.

10. I had a caramel latte and a pumpkin strudel:

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. March has finally brought spring. The sun has been shining for days! Hurray!

2. Today we spent 2 hours outside with BB#2. We visited my friend, they have a huge garden with lots of animals.

3. Poor BB#2 was terrified of their cat 😦

4. I got a newΒ  pediatric cardiology appointment for BB#2 at a private practice. I am hoping a more relaxed environment and a new doctor might have a good effect on him and they can examine him without sedation. Wish us luck.

5. Yesterday we visited my very pregnant friend. She is due in 1 week. It is so exciting, we will soon meet her little baby boy πŸ™‚ I cannot wait.

6. The weekend was full of flowers and cake πŸ™‚

7. We celebrated International Womens day and also my Name day was yesterday. A name day is a tradition in many countries in Europe and Latin America that consists of celebrating the day of the year associated with one’s given name.

My Name Day is March 9th πŸ™‚

8. Sunday I went to the Farmers Market and I got 3 of these beauties:


They were red velvet cupcakes with white chocolate frosting and marzipan flowers. They were yummy πŸ™‚

9. Tomorrow is BB#1’s favorite day: ice skating day.

10. Saturday I will again go sell our stuff at a baby rummage sale. Wish me luck.

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Thanks to the antibiotics I am finally feeling better. HURRAY!

2. But ofcourse now BB#2 got a cold. His little nose is all stuffed and he has a cough. But at least he is sleeping good and he does not have a fever.

3. We will go see the pediatrician tomorrow, to see if he needs any medicine.

4. Friday I had blood work done for both boys.

5. BB#1’s results are looking good, finally his TSH level is normal and he is not anemic. Good news.

6. The lady taking the blood was not satisfied with BB#2’s veins so she just poked his finger and squeezed the drops of blood out. Which is a friendlier way and BB#2 was fine with it, he was laughing.

7. But this way his blood haemolyzed (I think) and a whole bunch of stuff could not be determined, so now I have no idea if he is anemic or not…. So now in the last 2 weeks, with BB#2, we have had 3 doctors appointments that were not good for anything. We still need a pediatrician dermatologist, we need an echocardiogram and someone who will take blood from his little veins….

I will consult with our pediatrician tomorrow, maybe she has some ideas how to solve our problems.

I am just frustrated that we spend all this time at docot’s offoces and not even move forward one bit…..

8. I have been waiting for the plumber for 1 and a half hours now. I finally got an appointment from him after about 4 weeks of calling him. I just called him and he is not coming. 😦 The wall of the bathroom is wet, the paint is falling off. It is at times like this that I wish I could do everything myself, plumbing, accoutning, computer engineering etc…..I hate plumbers…..

9. The good news is that it is finally March, so soon spring will arrive πŸ™‚

10. The highlight of our weekend: a Somloi galuska (Hungarian Trifle) cake


It is made with three different-flavored sponge cakes, pastry cream, raisins, walnuts, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream and rum πŸ™‚

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. I am still sick 😦 I am at day 10 now 😦

2. So I have surrendered and started myself on antibiotics. I hope this will do the trick.

3. Ofcourse I had no way of getting to my GP, so when I took BB#2 to his pediatrician, I asked her to look at me as well πŸ™‚ What is a MOM to do….

4. Thursday was Carnival day at BB#1’s school. He dressed up as an indian. They had a disco for grades 1 to 4. Then they continued the paryt in their classroom for the whole day πŸ™‚

5. I need to catch up on the OSCAR winner movies. I have only seen Gone Girl. Who has a favorite? any suggestions?

6. Today was BB#2’s pediatric cardiology appointment.

7. We had to wait 1 hour before we could go in 😦

8. Upon entering BB#2 would not allow us to take his jacket off. So he screamed his head off. And ofcourse they cannot do an EKG and an echocardiogramm with his jacket on 😦

9. The doctor said she cannot examine him he is is screaming like this 😦

10. So now We will have to go back to the hospital in a couple of weeks and stay there for a whole day, while they sedate him and examine him that way 😦 I am not happy about this 😦 I think she should have been more patient with him and maybe he would have calmed down, but she didn’t even try 😦 Ofcourse he does not like doctors he spent the first 2 months of his life in a hospital! She said this way we will see if he has something wrong with him or not, and if so they can do something about it. That doing something about it does not sound good to me, I really do not want surgery for him. He is still so little. But maybe doing something about it just means that it will need further monitoring. Whatever, we are back to waiting and seeing 😦

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. So ok, it looks like february won’t be my favorite month this year 😦

2. BB#2 has been super cranky since saturday.

3. He is not willing to eat or drink and even sometimes wakes up during the night. I think he is teething.

4. Today was our appointment with the pediatrician and she saw nothing wrong with him, besides his teeth coming…

5. I on the other hand am really sick 😦 Runny nose, sore throat, aching limbs, low fever 😦

6. Too bad Moms don’t get sick days, to rest 😦

7. On saturday I went to sell at the baby sale, but there were hardly any customers 😦

8. Sunday was husband’s birthday. He got socks (not too exciting), I also wrote 4 cities on paper and put them in a hat and he got to pick one. So I will be taking him to BARCELONA. Once I start making money again and I can afford it 😦 So I don’t know when that will be….

9. Yesterday I took BB#2 to the dermatologist, but they said he needs a pediatric dermatologist, so now I have to find one of those….

10. BB#1 is excited because thrursday will be carnival day at school. He will dress up as an indian. I still have to make his head gear. I already have feathers…..

Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. It has been snowing for 3 days on and off 😦

2. I am soooooooo ready for spring and even more ready for summer πŸ™‚

3. We did go outside with the boys yesterday for a little snow ball fight and we built a snowman, a rather small one πŸ™‚

4. BB#1 is well again, but his illness did ruin all our plans for his second winter break.

5. The only thing we got accomplished last week was the boys getting their hair cut.

6. Today I went to the dentist. Who else hates to go to the dentist? I just hate the sounds of those dentist tools 😦 Yuck.Β  And I only had my plaque removed…. I will have to go back again because I have a cavity 😦

7. Husband has his birthday on sunday. Anyone has any good gift ideas for a 38 year old male πŸ™‚ ????

8. On sunday BB#1 and his Daddy went ice skating. Did I mention BB#1 was put in the advance group in ice skating at school just after like 3 classes??? Super proud Momma πŸ™‚ While they were skating BB#2 and I went toΒ  a market that is held every once a month in an old factory building / grounds. We got some yummy sweets:

9. Red Velvet Cupcakes πŸ™‚ Oh my they were so yummy πŸ™‚


10. Cheesecake and a chocolate-plum cake πŸ™‚


Apple pie with a caramel sauce.


Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Wow it is already february. January flew by so fast!

2. BB#1 received his very first report card. There are thing to improve,like they wrote that his work speed is slow and during class he is passive. Ofcourse, he is a boy, he won’t be raising both his hands, even if he knows the answer. What was strange to me was so many Moms shared their kids report card on facebook. I am not ready to do such things.

3. On friday I went to another baby sale. It was in a part of the city I have never been to, I had to look on the map where it is. It was in a catholic parish with a beautiful church garden. It was an interesting place with friendly people, though the baby sale was not very sucessful. I did make enough money to buy BB#2 some new moccasins πŸ™‚




4. This week is the second winter break at school for BB#1.

5. I had so many things planned, even going on a day trip out of town.

6. But ofcourse instead life happens and BB#1 started coughing then got a fever on sunday:(

7. So the winter break is spent inside and going to the doctors 😦 He finally did not have a fever today.

8. It is hard to keep the 2 boys separated in hopes of BB#2 not cathcing the illness 😦

9. Husband is working all the time, he worked over the weekend too, and today he couldn’t even come home, so I am tired from doing everything by myself 😦 Not a too cheerful TTT 😦

10. So I will end on a positive note: I had one of these lovelies over the weekend πŸ™‚


Ten Thoughts Tuesday

1. Last Thursday night BB#2 woke up at 4 am. I was totally useless that day. I am so thankful he usually sleeps through the night. I would be dead otherwise…

2. This weekend we finally went on a trip to our annual sausage making weekend.

3. It was a little stressful for me. BB#2 wouldn’t eat in the new environment and there were too many people there.

4. But the relative’s house is amazing. They live in a little village and it is soooooooooo quite. I could hear the birds and when we went on big walk we saw like 4 cars all together.

5. Today I went for a walk with BB#2. I checked the weather it was 0 Celsius. I thought ok.

6. Then we stepped outside and it started snowing 😦 We went anyway, since it took so long to get dressed.

7. We met with a friend for coffee. We also went to the Bank and the Insurance company.

8. Tonight there was a parent-teacher meeting at BB#1’s school. It was “short” this time, only 1 and a half hours long.

9. This week one of my favorite tv series will come to an end 😦 Thursday is the last episode for Parenthood 😦 I am so sad, I will be crying during the last episode.

Does anyone else watch it?

10. I found a cake today. it is called “Just Chocolate”. It is seriously good :
