Bouncy Bouncy!

I am currently looking for some sort of bouncing device for my 6 month old, she seems to think that she can do everything that my 5 year old does. Now, I am constantly trying to catch her so that she does not get hurt from her escapades.
I call this the 'bouncy bouncy' stage, zazou can't stay still for one second especially when her older sister is skipping around. I am amazed at this though because Lala (my 5 year old) did not start this stage until she was around 8 months old.
I have a couple of bouncy thingies that I want to try out but I can only buy one, so maybe you guys could help me figure out which one to get and then I will tell you all about it.

There is this:

and this:

and then this:

Also I am always open for suggestions though; for my eldest daugther I had something that looked like this:

but it seems that the above is no longer on the market because of all the accidents that have occured with the babies in them; that is a bummer because I remember my little one loving it so much.

So there you go, which one do you like..

Let's all do the PoTtY DaNcE!

I just love this commercial,This pull ups commercial has really won me over. I don't know if it's the singer/rapper or just the dance.. I find myself doing the potty dance all the time with my 5 month old even though she is not even near the age of 'the potty'.

Missing the 'Babble Jabble'

This does not happen to me often but today I miss the 'babble jabble' of adulthood. I do like my leisury days with the bossy 5 month old and the Hanna Montana fanatic 5 year old; but I so miss the times when I would get up, get all dolled up in my suit to head to work and grab my fav' Tim Hortons coffee on the way.

I do like spending this time with my daughters; I realise this the more time passes, I sometimes feel that they grow up so fast, I yearn for those great feelings I got when baby would kick in the womb, I love it when we are all crunched up together in the bed watching our favorite disney princess movie (we are girly girls!)

I do love ALL of that but sometimes it gets lonely out here in mommyhood; sometimes a little adult conversion is more then welcomed over here.

Kids say the DArNdesT things..

My 5 year old daughter, Lala, told me today " Mommy your butt looks like a fire truck!" Uh! What!.. and then she just runs off as if this was the most natural thing to say..

I am a SWAN.

A couple of days ago I too a 'yoga personality test' (yall may or may not know that I am a born again yoga fanatic), I am still thinking about what the results showed:

you are the swan

you are a stable, steady and calm, and seek peace in your relationships and world.

when life is in balance - you are loving, forgiving, and devoted. by far, the most compassionate of the three.

when life is out of balance - you can be stagnate and lethargic, which can lead to weight gain. (so right!)

though you are drawn to a slow steady practice, which brings out the best in you - you may also want to try a more invigorating, heated practice to balance you, like bikram or power yoga. you should avoid a practice that is too sedate, opting for a more dynamic approach either in breath, asana, or preferably - both.

your challenge is to tap into a powerful energy moving the prana throughout the body. try starting each day with a series of 5 sun a and 5 sun b salutations, beginning and ending with bastrika or kalabati breath to build heat, cleanse and energize the digestive system.
avoid spicy foods like mexican or indian - and be sure to eat lighter breakfasts and dinners, saving big meals for lunch. try raw fruits and vegetables. drink hot water, with lemon juice and ginger in the morning.

I don't know about doing the series of 5 sun saluations a and be in the morning.. with baby Zazou my plans are not always the ones that come first..

Hit the road Jack.. Uh Pat!

What do you do when your employer calls you up, while you are on maternity leave to explain that your employment will be terminated upon your return, do you:
A. Sing Haleluya because you have fallen in love with a little love bug baby name Zazou
B. Think WTF, how in the... are we going to make it! Be angry and disapointed.
C. Say Thank you and just let it be.
or D. All of the above!

Lately, a lot of people have heard the 3 words made famous by 'The Donald' on the Apprentice : " You are fired".
Is that GOOD or BAD...The bad.. the ugly is that I am disapointed by people, by working for people;and for someone who likes to work hard (just to have reason to play hard), I feel that I have been let down by the very people I have trusted to keep me up, or maybe I am asking too much of the corporate world, everyone knows that IT is a backstabber. The good thing,for me, is that I am not angry nor am I going crazy here, screaming like a maniac "WHY!!"; I have come to realize that this is life, nothing is guaranteed..certainly not employment.

Since this is the 'Let's reinvent Pat' year, that is what I had set out to do at the beginning of the year (the blog).. this is it.

Making friends Monday over at Kasey's blog

I stumbled upon Kasey's blog this morning and accidently added my name to Mr Linky... so now I have to own up, so here I go:

10 random things about ME:

1. Last friday after my yoga class, I did a 'Britney' thing and cut all of my hair off in front of the bathroom mirror.. YES, my husband thought I was nuts.

2. I love Tim Hortons Iced Cappuccinos.

3. I hate to cook even though I am beginning to be a pretty good at it.

4. I had never did laundry nor had I cooked a meal before going to college (my family had a maid when I was growing up).

5. I would love to stay home and take care of my children, Oh Yes that is what I am doing now.

6. I do not like to go out very much.. Yes, I am a homebody and PROUD of it.

7.I feel my eldest daughter is growing up too fast.

8.I don't have many friends.

9.I actually like to clean but I don't do it much.. Imagine.

10.I want to start my own business some day

Under Construction

I know I know, my blog is looking rather uhm.. weird latelty.

During my horrible sick days last week, my mind was not really as paralized as my body was so I decided to give my blog a little style lift. I guess it's a reflection of what I have been wanting to do for myself but the lack of moolah has prevented me of doing so(for me) that is why I am transfering all my energy to my beautiful bloggypoo.. Okay I will not be the one doing all the designing (leave the professional stuff to the professionals) but the blog will be trying on the designs...SWEET! I am very excited!

I will reveal my designing maven when the blog is covered in her "SHIZZA"
