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.

Toy Story 3

For the first time ever I did something I hadn't done before. Something absolutely crazy...

I took all 4 of my kids to the movies.

Not crazy you say?

It is when you decide to go and no one has had a nap, and it's your 2 year olds very first time to the movies EVER, and it's right before dinnertime which means dinner will have to wait until afterward, and you have to carry your infant in a wrap the whole time and are not sure how that will go.And did I mention I was doing this ALONE?

Yeah I am a wild like that. After being in the house doing nothing all day it was a good spontaneous thing to do.

So we all hopped into our car and off we went. Luckily Diego and Alayna are very helpful and the outing was very smooth.

Upon telling my children what movie we were going to see Alayna shouted, "Yay Toy Story! I wanna be the cowgirl!"

But Diego... oh Diego... all he could say was...

"Didn't we already see Toy Story 3?"

"No we haven't... it just came out!" I said excitedly. Hey I've been looking forward to this movie. I know the other 2 by heart.

"Yes we did." He said. "Remeber that one day..." as he continues with his attempt to remind me we've seen a movie I for a fact know we have not seen. I interrupt him...

"No, son. We have NOT."

"But Mom remember when..." Blah blah blah still trying to convinve me...

"That was Toy Story 2 duh!" I said now annoyed. Annoyed because he should know the difference. There was a difference!

"Toy Story 2? Oh well... it's the same thing."

"What?" I screamed!
"It is not the same thing! This is Toy Story 3!"

He looked at me a little confused and a little like he didn't really see the difference and importance here.

"Toy Story 3 Son! I've waited 11 years for this movie!"

All I got was another strange uninterested look.

"You don't understand, Andy is going to college! The toys...!"

"Who is Andy? I thought it was about Buzz and Woody?"


Why do I even bother?

So we just walked in silence to wait for our movie. And we posed for pictures around the theater. It's what we do. Mama needs pictures to remember all this precious time together.

And without any spoilers the movie was great! I really hope they don't go crazy and try to make a 4th one because this was just the perfect movie to close them with.

When it was over I got up and clapped... and Diego turned to me and said...

"Mom are you crying?"

"No son."

"I saw you wiping your eyes I thought..."

"No son, it's my allergies."

"Your allergies? But we've been inside and it's not windy."

"Well I poked my eye then."

"I think you're lying but.. okay."

Yes it was that good.
