The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

Conversations With My Son Diego

A few weeks ago

Diego: Mom, I love my Grandma.
Me: I am pretty sure she loves you a lot too.
Diego: I love her even if she's old.
Me: (Laughing) I don't think she's that old!
Diego: But Mom she is because she goes to the Dr a lot. And she has brown pimples on her face. And sometimes she looks tired. But I love her.
Me: Well everyone gets older... but she still has a lot more growing to do. She'll live to be as old as Abuelita one day.
Diego: Wow I didn't know that Grandma could get that old.
Me: (Still laughing) Well everybody can live to be that old.
Diego: Next time she goes to the Dr I am going to tell him to give her juice to make her younger. Because I love her.

LOL. Well I established that he loves her.

Yesterday

Diego: Mom it's almost my birthday huh?
Me: Yes baby, in 24 days more. And how old will you be?
Diego: Well I'm 4 now so I'll be 5!!!
(Pause)
Diego: Mom I'm almost done...
Me: Done with what?
Diego: Growing. Cuz look... (then he proceeds to count to ten on his fingers)... See mom when I get to ten there's no more so I am done.
Me: Oh really?! In that case how is it that I am 23?
Diego: I dunno Mom, cuz I don't have that many fingers. I think it just means your old like my grandma and grandpa.

Today:

Diego overheard me telling my friend the other day that my husband and I have known eachother since we were kids.

Diego: Mom, how did you and Daddy meet?
Me: Daddy used to live in Tucson and Mommy lived in Phoenix, and when Daddy was in 4th grade he moved to Phoenix with your Nana and he started going to Mommy's school.
Diego: Really? And did you love him?
Me: No baby, I thought boys were yucky when I was little.
Diego: (starts laughing) My daddy wasn't yucky!
Me: Well he was to me!
Diego: But he loved you because he must have thought you were a beautiful woman. I think you're a beautiful woman.
Me: Aww well Thanks sweetheart! You make me feel beautiful. But Mommy was mean to Daddy at school until we got older.
Diego: Well if I liked a girl I would tell her she is a beautiful woman so she could love me and we could get married too like you and Daddy. And I would be mad if she was mean to me like you were mean to Daddy.
Me: I know I was mean to Daddy but eventually we loved eachother and we got married. And we're very happy now!
(Pause while Diego collects his thoughts)
Me: So does that mean you wanna get married?
Diego: I think I want to start dating.

(What? How does he even know the word dating!!!)

Me: You want to start dating now?!!
Diego: Yes Mom, I am almost 5 and I need to start thinking where I am going to get married.

(Long pause because I didn't know what to say.)

Diego: I think I'll get married at the park where you and Daddy got married because I love it there.
Me: It is a very pretty park. I like it to.
Diego: To tell you the truth Mom I wish you never got married. Because I think you're the most beautiful woman and I could have married you. But Daddy beat me and now you're his wife.
Me: (My heart fills with happiness) Aww baby! That's sweet! But you couldn't have married me anyways because I am your Mommy and that's even better!
Diego: I know but I wish I could.
Me: What are you thinking... you're too young to think about marriage anyway.
Diego: I'm getting older soon, and I have to think for the future.

The End

Jeez! Where does he think about half of this stuff? He's no normal 5 year old that's for sure!

Definitely NOT a normal 5 yr old boy. Diego is an old soul he is actually turning 50 in 24 days...but, you ask how does she know this?

Well, Diego is kind, understanding, loveable and most of all he is my grandson!

Luv U Diego!
