A Princess' Tantrum

I am always in total shock on how my 5 year old can go from my sweet little princess to an angry, screaming bratt! Yesterday was like any normal Wednesday, picked up both my kids from school, on the way home I hear the normal bickering among the 2 of them and I hear all about my daughter's day, my son shares his day in bits & pieces....she is definitely more talkative.
Now when we get home is where the mood changes.  She begins with asking if she can stay in her grandmother's house (which is the 1st floor apt). On any other day I would be fine with this, but it is Wednesday and she has ballet, and only has 1 hour to eat and get ready.  The last thing I need is for her to fall asleep....which she usually does when she visits grandma! Here come the tears and screaming.

We get upstairs to our house, and she is still going, stomping her feet, and screaming at me like if I have to listen to her...LOL!! She demands to be taken downstairs, and doesn't want me to dress her for ballet, she wants her grandma to do it.....so now I am definitely not allowing her to go anywhere.  This is one thing that she will learn, and that is to respect me now & always--I am MOM, and must listen to me just like she listens to dad!

So now, she hates ballet and even says that I need to go back to work--hahaha, BIG mistake!! I keep dressing her, even though she is crying--then she hears her father coming up, and she stops, just like that!!

Too bad for her, her dad already heard her screaming, so now he tells her how bad she is behaving and that he will not send her to ballet, but she will also lose her games, tv, salsa & hip hop dance classes----so now she starts crying again, and saying that she does like ballet and will go.....yawning in between her screaming!

These are the times that as parents, you really need to sit back and laugh! As the adult, I know she is tired, making her tantrums worse.....so she eventually apologized and relaxed until it was time to head to dance!

This lasted about 30 minutes, but it exhausted me.  Aside from me being tired already, thanks to my low carb diet, this really wiped me out.

On the other hand, she went off to her dance classes like nothing had ever happened...LOL....a true dramatic little princess!!  I think I really have my hands full with her.

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.



So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.
