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 Rainbow and a Rash

Alayna was at the table having her after school snack when all of a sudden I hear her yelling, "Mommy, Come here hurry... You have GOT to see this!"

So I walk, not run, but just walk over and I find her in the corner of the kitchen where our water dispenser thingy is. And she's staring at the ground. So she pulls me closer and says, "Mommy we have rainbows in our house! They're so pretty! Who brought them here?!"



So I explain to her that when the sun's light reflects through the water it makes a rainbow. Of course she didn't understand. So I show her, because of the sunlight coming in through the window, the water in the water jug can make a rainbow. Then I show her that if I tap the water jug then the rainbow would move... because the reflection of the rainbow is coming from the water.


She was totally excited and amazed. She sat there for like 8-10 minutes just tapping the jug and watching the rainbow "dance" and once it stopped, she'd tap the jug again and start over.


So funny!

Then all day long Arielle has had massive diarrhea. Doesn't sound nice right? Ah, motherhood. Well by the evening she ended up with a massive rash even though I would run her under bath water every time I changed her diaper (which was quite often might I add) instead of using wipes. It was horrible! So I kept latering her in diaper rash cream... which sucked because it didn't really do anything! Until I decided to start using A&D ointment instead. And she spent the whole night in a makeshift cloth diaper.


Yup we wrapped her in a recieving blanket and saftey pinned it. It was the only thing that made her feel better. And when I put her to bed all I did was put a regular diaper over the blanket for leakage. LOL

I am seriously considering cloth diapering the new baby. I've never looked into it nor do I know how it works but I know it's healthier. Plus it's better for the environment no? I'll looking into it maybe.
