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.

Sleeping with the Angels

"This is my temporary Home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through
This was just a stop,on the way To where I'm going
I'm not afraid because I know this was
My temporary home."

This morning my mom passed away. She was 48 years old.

For over a year now we've seen her health decline. And although it's been tough we've made sacrifices. My husband and I were crammed with our 3 kids at my parents house. It was stressful, emotionally, financially, we lost and gained friends. We became more financially poor than ever in our whole life. The luxuries we were used to were gone but yet we've felt more rich than ever. We were together and my we spent everyday with my Mom. For this I am thankful. I am glad my kids really knew their Grandma, I am glad that my husband and her shared a love for each other that was unexplainable. I am glad she was there for every single one of my pregnancies and there for me no matter what. She gave me everything. 25 years old and my Mom was still there to support me and give me every ounce of what she could give me without wanting anything in return.

To say she was amazing is an understatement.

She left us so suddenly, so unexpectedly, she has been sick but never to the extent that we thought she would leave us so quickly. She didn't suffer. And she went peacefully. We still don't have any answers.

Today has been a blur and I am running on very little sleep. But I want to say thanks to everyone who has come to see us and keep us company. Many people bringing food and helping us when we really need it.

My Mom was loved by many many people.

It's amazing to see JUST how many people.

I love you Mommy. Sleep with the Angels and say hi to Jesus,

Oh Michelle, My heart is breaking for you and your family. I am devastated for you. I got your text. What can I do to help?

So sorry to hear this. I came over from your dad's blog who I have been commenting on for years. Your family is in my prayers.

I love you bestie! You are very lucky to have all of the wonderful stories and wow the present wrapping night must have been a blast. All of the stories and memories you have with your mom from that ONE night makes it seem like it lasted for weeks. I am glad you and your family are so close. I still have no words, I don't know how to console you, but I am just here to listen, laugh and get you anything you need (except for a glass of water in the middle of the night). I am glad I was able to help you finish the shopping and wrapping. Also, I hope everyone liked my cookies and hot cocoa... and hope it helped them for even just a few seconds. Your Mom was a funny and fiesty person who made me feel like part of the family. Your family is in my thoughts!
Love you!
