I don't wanna count it..I know it's been many times but I have no regrets..I want them to be happy and they are the first one whom I want to share my blessings..and it's so good..though sometimes it would be hard..but the outcome is always good.

Some people are luckier than the other ones.It is fine as long as everyone in your family is happy.

Quite a bit I must say and it all happened unconsciously. I swore at first I would never change and it was a give and take situation and I've even argued about it with my husband. But through the years, I have changed and most of the time it was convenient to do so. I hadn't even realized the change till I visit my parents and relatives...because then I am suddenly the same old person I was and then my son looks at me and says 'Amma, you are so much fun!'. And my relatives stare at me and say, 'You've changed so much'...so I guess, I'm all confused about who I am right now:P

That is the strengh and great asset of our family system my friend.We can be very proud of this.It is the peace and content we derive in our life that counts more than the fun.

Well, since my husband is not cuban like me , I can tell you that I don't eat that much cuban food. This is why when I go to Miami, I go straight to a cuban restaurant.
