It's Better to Kiss

parenting teen, parenting tips
I admit I have been postponing to write about a K-word because the word that keeps popping out of my head is the word kill, LOL. I wonder why? Kill is such a strong word and so negative. I've got to write something positive, right?


Say, a kiss


My daughter, when she was over one, liked to give me kisses anytime. Several times, while she sat on the shopping cart facing me (as we waited in line to pay) she'd ask for a kiss.

"Mommy!"

She'd stick out her lips like 2 inches out even monkeys would think she was exaggerating. She was so cute, everybody looked and smiled. Of course, I had to meet hers with my lips and kiss her.

I tell her this now and ask her why she doesn't give me that kind of kisses anymore and she just laughs.

This is the sort of memories I try to recall when she annoys me so much (as a teen being difficult), that I want to kill her. Ooops, here I go again with the word "kill."

Just kidding!

  1. When my daughter was a teenager I wasn't sure if she was going to kill me or I was going to kill her (kidding), but now we are the very closest of friends. They are trying years as girls develop their independence and yet still need their mother's guidance. I know that when she is a little bit older you will look back on these times and laugh. You can still give her a kiss when she falls asleep! :-)

    1. I would but I'm afraid I'd wake her up from her angelic sleep. :)

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
