Another SABADO GIGANTE in our Candy Coated Casa & The Realization That My Candy Baby Will Suffer From NO Daddy Issues, EVA!


I'm sitting here on a Saturday night with my family watching the ever- so -popular & sort of always ridiculous variety show, Sabado Gigante on Univision! It's like a Latino version of Saturday Night Live, Family Feud & The Gong Show & Playboy Chanel all rolled into one! This show comes complete with a bevy of super smokin' Hooter-esque mamacitas who dance around practically naked while shaking' their beautifully enhanced maracas (boobs) in everyone's face. I'm sitting here about to explode this 2nd baby out, totally exhausted, have massive heart burn & nausea and looking like the antithesis of these hot chicks who I'd love to see trip in their 6 inch hooker heels. (Bitter & Jealous? Hell Yes I am right now!)  Anyhow,I look over to my my husband & dad who are playing with our baby and I think " This little girl will NEVER have a single "daddy issue"... EVER! She's dancing and mimicking the Hooter-esque mamacitas on TV and everyone's cheering her on and at this very moment, I realize my kid is surrounded by LOVE & some crazy guys who adore her like lunatics. I love that she has phenomenal men in her life ( Real Men! The kind that are loyal, loving and protective of their family and as much as I praise strong females, I thank God for this kid having such exceptional male role models in her life.)  Her Grandpa Georgie & her Daddy are big guys who have no problem being silly, putting on bracelets, playing dolls with her  or letting her honk & pull their big noses just to make her smile...

I've also just realized, "I think my ass is stuck in my office chair and... WOW, this is how I now spend my Saturday Nights, What the hell happened to us, we used to be so freakin' awesome, popular & fun !!!" But the truth is... I wouldn't trade any of this and I couldn't have ever imagined that life would have turned out to be so sweet & semi normal... Am I really starting to cry now? Yup! Here we go and that's my cue to sign off..

Night Party People...

Hello Jackie, I just wanted to say I absolutely love all your posts & can relate to them all. I love this one in particular because being Hispanic we often find our selves with the fam bam watching sabado gigante :) I love that you tell everything like it is good and bad. you are an inspiring individual & will love to continue to see all your future endeavors. More importantly watching your pregnancy and seeing you juggle it all gave me that little push I needed to start trying for baby #2.Working full time as accountant,trying to start a business & being a madre...is tiring!! Having a husband and family that supports me entirely helps me be who I am today and where I plan to be, this post also reminded me of that ;). So when you have your down days as we all do...remember you have many that you inspire. These to quotes come to mind when I read your story.

“There is no greater challenge than to have someone relying upon you; no greater satisfaction than to vindicate his expectation.”-Kingman Brewster

“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, "She doesn't have what it takes"; They will say, "Women don't have what it takes";” -clare boothe

Rosalie! How am I just seeing your post- forgive me.. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful message with me. I can't really explain how it makes me when someone tells me they are inspired by my blog, business, crazy family, life etc.. I just feel like it's our total responsibility as people, women, moms etc.. to make each other better. And if you read my stuff you may know, I WAS MOST CERTAINLY NOT ALWAYS THIS WAY! Learned the hard way and realized I needed a life over-haul! This world is a HUGE place but I think we are all connected to everyone & everything. I have a passion for writing, my family, my business and doing something with my life before I wake up and realize it's flashed right before my eyes.. I also think every day is a gift and you've got to live it with Gusto & Complete Honesty! Thanks for the quotes, for making me feel understood in a wold where I often think I'm kinda weird and for now leaving me in hormonal tears.. ;-)

Adelante Mujer! Obstacles only exist if we let them!

Love,
Jackie
