Recharging with Iron Man

Last weekend, I had a chance to recharge my batteries. It is amazing how spending 24 hours with a seven-year-old can make life a little more bearable.
He is a dinosaur loving bookworm.


Last week, I took a quick trip home to see JJ. I have work this weekend and he has school so quick trip. It was awesome. We went to see Iron Man 3 in 3D. I  also had a heart attack about the price of the movie but I promised JJ could see it. My new nickname for him is now Iron Man, which he was cool with. I enjoyed watching him watch the movie. We had a blast. 

Some other first on the visit included:

I took him for his first visit to Sweet Frog.

He ate so much ice cream that he had to push the cup away.


And he now gets to sat up front with me in the car. It was weird for both of us but we got over it. It was nice to talk with having to yell over my shoulder.

And we made pizza,  camped out in the living room and watched a movie. Or more like the movie watched us. I love my son. And hopefully, I will be able to spend more time with him this summer. But it was sweet to be able to spend a few hours with him. I am tired this week but it was so worth it to see my boy!

Happy Mother's Day

To all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day.

For me, November 23, 2005 was the best day of my life. The love was there before he was born. But when I looked in the beautiful eyes, I knew I would do everything in my power to make sure he was safe and protected. Due to being deep in ED, I was deemed a high risk pregnancy. It was rough gaining and maintaining the weight. But I did it so he would have a chance.

Mommy and son!
Being a mother is an amazing but scary responsibility. I love him more than anything in this world. It is because of him that I fight so hard to recovery. There have been some moments of late. But I keep going for him. To keep me going there are reminders of him everywhere from his toys on my desk at work, photos on my phone and his dinosaurs everywhere in the apartment. I love my little Iron Man. Thank you for being heart and soul.
