Hello Change?

When in Windsor, Ontario.

Well, Hello, Windsor!

Helloooooo!! I know I’ve been MIA for a while. I have been crazy busy with a few changes. The photo above is our new home. We have officially left Toronto, ON, Canada and moved three and a half hours to Windsor, ON, Canada. We are now close to the boarder to Detroit, Michigan, USA, where J, will be doing some work with a company in automation. The past month, has been crazy hectic, with packing and getting sorted for the move. From a two-bedroom apartment, you’d think we’ve not much for such a tiny place. But guess what.. I have never packed so much stuff and sorted through so much stuff like that before. We have done many moves, we have hauled many things, but this time, the truck was literally packed up to the rim, to the point where as soon as they opened the truck when we got to Windsor, stuff just fell out.

On to a new adventure..bye for now Toronto

Now that the move is done, we have settled-in Apollo at his new school. He’s back to a Catholic School. So the adjustments required are in place. Coming from a Public School, academically he feels a little behind. But there’s nothing that smart boy can’t figure out. He started the Tuesday after we moved. He was a little bit afraid and nervous, but the day he started I pointed out all the boys in his class looking at him, excitedly wondering who he was, and the beautiful girls in his class. That helped with his social nerves.

Arty on the other hand, seems to require at least two more weeks of adjustments. She’s been rather cranky and unsettled. Perhaps, she feels we’ll return to Etobicoke, to our old place.  I don’t blame her. I miss home too!

Cassi doesn’t understand the change that just happen. She is growing everyday, and becoming more responsive. She smiles, coos, and makes noises now as if she’s talking to you. She loves chatting. Her personality is slowly starting to show, which is great.

My In-Law’s came over the weekend. They spent the weekend with us, which was great. It’s still a little hard being so far from everyone. And the kids love that they get to see them as if not much as changed. I’m thankful they’re willing drive here 3.5 hrs, because I know it’s hard. It’s not that far, but it’s still half a day drive.

It was my birthday yesterday. We didn’t do much, but I’m definitely a lucky girl to be surrounded by so much love.

This new change is definitely one that you require you to slowly seep into. I don’t think I fully feel the change as yet. It feels almost like we’re just on vacation, but I know as time passes that feeling will subside and we’ll really have to start setting up roots and make this our home. We have yet to furnish the place to our liking, and to figure some of the stuff about the house..we’re sort of just taking our time to really slowly transition the kids. We’ve got a garage full of stuff still that we’re slowly unpacking, but that surely takes some time. There’s no rush.

I should be able to blog more frequently, I had just been in a funk after the move that it’s been hard to sit in front of the computer and figure this whole writing stuff out.

Anyway, I’m hungry..

“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember every thing you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.”

Be good.

Maria, author of Imommy blog. Maria has three children, Apollo (8), Artemis (2), and Cassiopeia (1). She is due to marry her best friend July 2017. Maria used to be a Registered Early Childhood Educator, before having her second child. She is now a SAHM, that is not paid for wearing many other professional hats. She is, and not limited to some of these professional positions: Doctor, Nurse, Nanny, Chef, Maid, Uber Driver, and so on.. When she isn't mothering or tending to all her other unlicensed professional positions, she loves writing and dancing. She is a previous ballroom and latin competitor. Some of her favourite "stuff" are, turtles/turtoises, the colour green (lime - forest), Laneige's Sleeping mask, make-up, and eating (food is her most favourite self-care aspect). Maria is also currently writing a book on her autobiography, which has been ongoing for the last few years, she's certain she'll eventually finish if she could just get over the hump of emotions attached to exploring oneself. As you read Maria's blogs, you'll get a feel of the true individual that she is, which can sometimes be a fine line of crazy and sweet, but not too sweet. Maria hopes you'll enjoy her blog as she does talking in her head to herself as her fingers skim through the letters on her keyboard. A message from Maria; I do not intend to use my writing to impose or tell you how motherhood should be done. I am no pro at this, and find as I share my wisdom from my experiences, that it shall uncover parts of your heart that find it relatable. My posts aren't always consistent in writing, but it is meant for you to to take in as it is. Find it humurous, sad, lonely, or helpful. Whatever it is you take from it, it only means one thing.. that I have found a place in your mind for those few minutes you dedicated to reading my crap. Thank you for being here, for giving me the chance to share my thoughts. Please return, and remember all written materials and photos on this site, is not to be taken without permission. xo, MM
