[Mexico Progresso] So got her to smile a little bit. It was insane hard to get her to smile for a photo because she was just not having it. You will see a trend through out the photos that she is just on me. Pretty much love sitting on my lap while I'm eating. Wanted to be held as soon as I got up. Swipe ➡️ for my eating view the whole trip. Not to mention she literally three everything on the floor. She was such an angry child.
.
We are here in Mexico and we decided not to do any excursion today because she's just not up to it and we ended up putting her back to two naps because she was just so tired all the time. So my poor husband would stay in the room with her while she napped. .
Thank god we got a suite room with balcony so it's not like we were trapped in a room with no windows and light.

[Day 1] When she got sick the day before we leave for the trip. Yes - It was pretty frustrating.
.
Back to work Monday and I'm still recovering from my cold from the vacation. Many of you wanted me to share how our vacation went since I've been giving some snippets of our vacation. Well so over the next couple of weeks - I will slowly upload some photos my husband took. I do have to thank him for these pictures because I had my hands full. Literally. She was on me the ENTIRE trip and refuse to lose skin contact.
.
I really wanted those cute family vacation photos we all see on instagram. But instead I got a whole bunch of her on me with her pouty face. So here's the 1st picture of many. Hope you find them as funny as I do now. (not so much on the trip)

At one point in my life I wanted to travel forever. Seriously. When I lived in Australia, I was seriously debating about living there for good. Beach, Sun, endless surfing?! YES PLEASE!. .
.
Maybe that's why I try to keep travelling as much as I can - a bit harder now....... Planning a family vacation and trying to stick to our routine without time difference, short flight... was not easy! Oh and we got hit by a whole family of sickness on the trip. Go figures. .
.
Maybe when she's older like 10 we can fly to Aussie! .
Till then - short family vacation only! .

We are departing our boat tomorrow, as much as I am going to miss the sun. I am looking forward to my own bed and some Chinese food!!! Even though, we had it pretty tough the couple of days because well, my child got my husband and I sick on our trip and we both started popping drugs like candies to stop the cold from coming. (Which worked!!!) I am glad we decided to go on a cruise. I'm sure in a few years time I will look back and laugh at how she turned into a tiny demon for 5 days. I've don't think I heard her scream so much in that short span of time. It may the different environment too. She didn't like the food, pasta and mash potatoes aren't her thing. And we also realized she doesn't like icecream either. Odd child. .
.
Either way, we got some pretty memoriable videos and photos. Maybe next time when we travel... Let's go in the summer, lesser chance of her being sick.lol
.
.
The shows were amazing, the staff were so welcoming. We had an amazing time.

Ciao Mexico. .

Travelling with an almost 2 year old. So, remember when we travelled to Hawaii when she's 4 months old? And I loved every single second of it??? Well who knew travelling with a toddler is so very different. She cried and whine so much on this trip I legit have nightmares of her crying in my dreams. It's like she is testing my patience. The amount of time I said no on this trip. 😂 Maybe because she still feeling sick, so she's super tired and cranky but man there are so many times I'm just losing it. I imagine having a quiet Vacation, instead I got a screaming one where I look like a mad woman running after my child. You know those cute family photos you see on Instagram. Like.... HOW. I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW YOU DO IT. I have a hard enough time trying to get her to stand still let alone a group family photo. But I'm trying to enjoy it as much as I can with this amazing weather. I know is Toronto is going to be freezing when I come back !!!

We finally boarded and here I am setting up our room. This little mom hack was from Christine, so simple! Basically all you need is managetic hooks, safety pins and bedsheets and voila! You have now sectioned off ur toddler to her own room. And you can still do your own thing while she sleeps without distraction. This is amazing. I'm so glad she told me this!!! I feel so free. And we both had an amazing night sleep. (Finally). Swipe ➡️➡️ for the final product. .

[SURVIVAL] so, this is definitely not just me. There are many mothers out there I spoke to who have their kid in daycare also experience the never ending sickness. I was TOLD this would stop after a couple of months. And you know what. You LIARS. 😫 I've been legit sick non stop every two weeks since JUNE 2018. It's been just a little over half a year and I just got hit with a stomach flu out of no where. Then this chubby Bunny got pink eye today. Oh. Does it stop?!?!?! Please someone tells me that this cycle of sickness will stop soon, I literally don't think my body can handle it.
.
I don't have a great immune system to begin with and this just  took it to another level of I am trying to survive.
.
what really angers me is that I can't do anything when I'm sick... Yes, I am one those where I curl up in a ball and cry because I am so sick and wishing my mom would just make me soup and feed it to me. But since I don't have that luxury I try to tough it out but still cry at night 😪 I know, sad. But seriously being a mom and sick and caring for a sick child is hard. Thank god I have the husband who literally took care of everything for the past two days while I just face plant in the toilet for hours. Oh yes. The stomach flu hit me hard.
.
Well, and I thought 2019, I will have a fresh start.... Well I did get a fresh start of a new virus. 😤

Motherhood Thought: I'm sure many of you can relate and I often get super jealous when I hear my friends have a great support system from the family. You know the dinner for two nights, weekends date or simply just a break - weekly help. I can pretty much count the number of times my husband and I had a "date night" in the past almost 2 years. A total of 1. You think I'm kidding, I really wish I was. As much as I enjoy family time of 3. Sometimes, I need a dinner without a screaming kid in my ear. Our night usually ends at 730pm latest because we have to put her to sleep. As a nazi on her sleep schedule, we always head home at 730pm the latest. This makes it tricky, when you have a wedding/birthday dinners that STARTS at 7pm. So, often times - one of us would have to head home and stay home and put her to bed. But often times, our friends are super accommodating and will have dinner around 6PM. It's really a journey in this motherhood, I was joking with my husband, maybe in 5 years we'll get our life back and actually go out for a night out! Anyone else can relate? . . . .

I started my obsession with children decor as soon as I found out I was pregnant. Any other moms out there feel the same way??? I can't believe just how much children home decor I have over the past years. It makes me want her to stay little forever!!! I am currently helping Christine decorate her kids room too. I am so excited to show you guys the final result! .

@andeslophotography  fun fact, he also did our wedding photos! You have no idea how long it took to get her laughing. She was a screaming mess. She was also feeling sick and just didn't want to be held. But it does take an awesome photographer to capture moments like this. I am printing these out for my wall gallery, stay tune!
