The above picture is four of my daughters plus me. Going left to right, Tinkerbell, No-No, Me, Ewee, and Sum-Sum.
Now imagine us in a room full of Spanish-speaking-Mexican women mingled with some of their men-wished I had pictures to show you.
Ewee’s quazi mom-in-law put a baby shower on for her. It was the longest one I’ve ever attended. From forty-thirty to eight-thirty, I was trapped. Everything was Mexican. Fried food galore-stuff I wouldn’t and couldn’t eat. All game instructions were in Mexican. All introductions were in Mexican. I’m sure you get my point.
“Mom. What are they saying?” One of my daughters asked.
“Don’t worry,” I said. “I’ll figure it out.” Good thing I took Spanish, Castillion not Mexican. There is a difference, people, but I did get through it. I listened with my heart.
Lesson here, I learned what it’s like to be the minority.
Now for my grandson:
Say hello to Jordan Kyle Alvarrez. He was born July 20, 2011. He weighed 8 lbs and was 21 inches long. He also, ripped mom on the way out.
A bit of karma is already happening to Ewee. Her weight and height were the same when she was born. She also ripped me on the way out.
So if I haven’t been by your blog or left a comment, the little guy above has a lot to do with it. This week I’ll get back on track now that I’m getting used to grandma-dom.
I even downloaded several books to my Kindle this week.
The Dream Spell by Emma Daniels
The Touch by Lisa Olsen
Angel of Mercy by Lisa Olsen
My Beginning by Melissa Kline
A Repeating Life by Christy Parks
Storm Chaser by Mark R. Hunter

Next week, I’ll have a book review prepared on Beth Muscat’s Triology, Remember the eyes.
That’s all for now folks!
Happy blogging, reading, and writing!
