Sitting at work has it advantages. One you can blog. Matias has been battling diaper rash poor guy. So last night Luis and I decided to give him some baby Tylenol to help with his poor butt. After Matias went to bed, we decided that it was pretty funny that our son's butt hurt so bad that he needed pain relief. Then we were worried that we should have not have gave it to him...who knows he seemed to sleep last night which I am thankful for!

Did anyone watch CSI NY last night, I normally am not too big of a fan but we were suckered in. Maybe because we have nooo lives anymore but man it was good! Anyways that is all for now hopefully Matias diaper rash gets better!

Brush with Celebrity!

Sometimes in a baby's life they get lucky. For some babies this might include a kiss from dad or sugar in before the age of one. But for our son it means that you get a kiss from Al Franken.

I once kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland. It is supposed to give you the gift of gab. Hopefully for Matias, he will get the gift of comedy.

We had a great day at the Cinco de Mayo festival. Where the Vega family took back the day! We watched the parade, where I shamelessly pawned my child off, to take a picture with Mr. Franken. Then we ate some sweet potaoe fries, a tamale and a foot long hot dog.

We stop to nurse in the park and our companions Leo and Ellen goofed off with us. Matias took his first tumble down the hill and all was well. Overall it was a solid day of family tougethter.

On a side note, I kicked Luis's butt in Statego last night as well!

I am growing up

It struck me this week as I talked to four high school classes. That I am no longer in high school or college or any school for that matter...I am in the school of raising a kid. Scary! I no longer listen to KDWB and think it is cool. I no longer cruise canal park with Sara, Greta and Steph. I pay my own bills. I understand the need to save for retirement. I thought that when I went to college that it was going to be really challenging. In reality it was not that hard. Except Social Theory...anyways, I did learn a lot at school and it is now hitting me. i learn to be concerned about things in the world that do effect me....random thought for the day....
