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.

A Little Bit of Reality

So here I am thinking that when I woke up this morning it would be an ordinary day. Which in my world I should know by now... ordinary just means one adventure after another.

First on my list to do was find a church that we can baptize my Goddaughter in because the church I always go to won't do it.

Next, I had to make Arielle a Dr's appointment for tomorrow morning.

And last, something I have been putting off for about a week now... I had to call and find out what elementary school is in our district because I have to enroll Diego for Kindergarten. Yes, I've been putting off as if that will somehow deter him from starting scchool. I know it's inevitable and his time has come. But I am selfish... I want my little boy all to myself for a few more years. Because once he starts school... he's no longer ALL MINE. I will no longer be the person he depends on for everything, I will no longer be there for every thing he does big or small. He'll have a teacher to tell his stories to, he'll have friends to share the day with, and he'll be more idependent. Don't get me wrong there is such excitment in me knowing that he will learn amazing things. He'll start to read and write. And I will be the proud mommy who delights in seeing her son succeed and grow. But I am a mother... and us mothers are built with irrational fears. All that runs through my mind are the what ifs... What if he gets hurt and I am not there to kiss his boo boo and make him feel better... What if someone makes fun of him and I am not there to pick him up and tell him that he's beautiful just the way he is... What if he accomplishes something huge and is filled with excitement and I am not there to witness it firsthand?

So here I sit filling out paper after paper, detail after detail, and getting him enrolled for school. I will drop off the papers tomorrow... wish me luck. I think I need it more than he does.
