How was your Easter?

Happy Easter a day or so late! I hope you had a great day. We celebrated with family and overall it was a good day! The Diva is a determined egg hunter. At church she came up with 22 and at home she came up with 26. Not a bad egg count, huh?

She of course woke up at the crack of dawn ready to go. I wish just one day she would sleep-- but alas it is not to be done... Anyway I digress, we hunted eggs at church and she had a blast until my little drama queen fell down in the briers and got scratches on her knees. Oh My GOD, it was the end of the world. I think that she cried for 40 minutes. I finally had to take and put her in the car and tell her I was going to throw her Easter basket away. I know bad MOM... but I was tired of her whining. This is her smelling the flowers at church pre-brier incident. She was cute huh?

So I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday and from my family to yours Happy Easter a day or so late.

Here Comes Peter CottonTail

Here Comes Peter CottonTail hopping down the Bunny trail, hippity hoppity Easter’s on its way!!! At the Princess/Diva household we are deep into celebrating Easter. We have boiled eggs, we have filled plastic eggs with candy and the Diva has told everyone what the Easter bunny needs to put in her Easter basket. Personally I think that the Easter Bunny is over-rated. I mean why on God’s green earth would a Bunny come bearing eggs and chocolate… ok anyone can bring me chocolate and I will accept. I just have a hard time with the whole “I am a Bunny bearing gifts” routine ya know?

But anyway I digress, Sunday we had the Diva’s yearly Easter portrait with the live bunnies. None were strangled this year I might add. On the way back the diva asked “mom what does the Easter Bunny have to do with God?

Ok let me start at the beginning, Saturday opening day for Little League, Kelli - Team Mom. Picture it Kelli screaming at a bunch of little brats cause they wont put on their helmets, they have somehow lost their glove and hat on the way off the field and THEY All want to be the pitcher! JUST SHOOT ME NOW! So Saturday night the Diva decides she needs a spend the night party at MeMe and Popsie’s – Load her up and take her – pretty much my words.

So now we are to Saturday night (I hope your imagination works well, cause I am telling you Saturday was just blissful just blissful—hell I can not even type that with a straight face- I was damn happy it was over!) We went over to some friends and I decided it would be a great time to celebrate… well celebrate anything. I mean I would have toasted to trees and bushes and leaves and your birthday in November or just the fact that the day ended in Y. So seeing as how grey goose and pineapple juice like each other so well, I decided to get intimate with them myself. Which ends in Kelli drinking way more than she should have not only in one night but probably in a at least a week. Now I am going to have to blame some of it on making drinks in the dark. How was I supposed to know that I was using entirely to much vodka… I mean it is clear FCOL!

So now it’s Sunday morning and I have to drag my-HUNGover-self to have the Diva’s pictures made and she now she wants to know what does God have to do the Easter Bunny. My reply I think was absolutely perfect.

Go ask you Daddy!”

Telephone Etiquette

As I was driving home yesterday, I called the house. The conversation goes like this:
Diva: Hello
Well hey baby, what’s Momma’s girl doing?
Diva:I am not taking off my shoes, that’s what.
Me: Ok... well that’s good, where is Daddy?
Diva: Umm he is around
Me: Ok can I talk to him?
Diva: Umm yeah, stay right here (ok where am I going to go?)
Me: Ok lovie. Now I hear her run through the house, she comes back and picks up the phone
Diva: It will be a few minutes… lets have some on hold music--- The itsy bisty spider climbed up the waterspout, down cam the rain… (she sings me the entire song)

Finally Kevin gets the phone before she can launch good into I’m a little teapot… which I must add is really cute when she sings it… but I digress.

Back to my Diva’s phone etiquette or lack there of, she is only 6 so I thought it was not too terribly bad. So we will have to work on this along with about a million other things.

Happy Anniversary to me!!

Today is my anniversary. Kevin and I have been married 8 years. WOW!!! No-one is dead! A miracle if I do say so myself.

You know it is funny; I can remember being so nervous before we got married and worrying about everything going perfect. The day of our wedding it rained a monsoon…my sister dropped her maid of honor dress in the red clay… I lost his ring… and there was a tornado while we were on the interstate headed to Disney for our honeymoon. But you know now I look back at all those things and they make me smile. Those things make my wedding special. Now I think of my bridesmaids in there beautiful sky blue colored dresses with their fans covered in flowers and my nieces and nephews looking so cute. I would not have traded all those things going wrong for anything in the world. So Happy Anniversary, Kevin I love you!!!
By the way the necklace is my gift. Kevin got a great bottle of Scotch!!! Great gifts, huh?

What does pneumonia look like?

Well I can tell you that it has brown hair streaked with auburn and big brown eyes! In other words my Diva has it. Ok I know that she is sick, but she is driving me crazy for crying out loud. Please recall she is the biggest drama queen known to man. I mean she wants to go to the emergency room for a hang nail. You think I am making that up? Well I am not. Yes, yes, yes, I realize she come by the drama part naturally, I mean I did birth her and all. What can one expect? The fever is out of control, of course 104 would make even the most laid back people freak out, not that I have ever been accused of being laid back.

But anyway, she is sick, my house is dirty, she is whiny, I need to do laundry, she is sleeping between Kevin and I in the bed, in short this week has been hell.

And they have my picture up (you know the kind with Most Wanted, please alert security, should this woman show up – yeah you know it) at the X-ray place. They pissed me off royally on Tuesday when I was trying to have her chest x-rays done. Needless to say we will never be going back there. Even had the service not been awful, my welcome is not guaranteed after my behavior. But they should have performed the test that we needed and sent us on our way not keep us for nearly 2 hours then refuse to give me her x-rays because their Dr had not looked at them. As if I care what he thinks. I care what her pediatrician thinks not some radiologist.

So in short this has been my week, Tylenol, Motrin, antibiotics, cough syrup and COFFEE by the gallon.
