Being a parent is so rewarding and very comical at the same time because kids can be very funny. they come up with things that make you angry, happy, sometimes make you laugh till you pee on your self other times wondering where the hell they come up with things like this. There are different stages in a child’s life that help them communicate with you. My daughter is at the writing stage. She writes little notes all the time. I have to be honest sometimes I have to guess the words but she is too cute with the things she says to me. With her father it’s more of I love you but can you get me this LOL. Last week as her father came to visit them, we were all on the couch watching T.V when she came to each of us and handed us a note. The first one is the one she made for me, the second is the one she made for her father.
Today is my youngest birthday she turns 7 years old. I can’t believe how big she’s gotten. I look at her and how much of a character she is and iI cant believe that came out of me. This morning we surprised her with balloons and party pancakes. We gave her some gifts to open, when she originally thought she did have any. Her smile from ear to ear made my day.
Sometimes we tend to leave our original families behind because we get caught up in making our new family comfortable. We aid to their every need which leaves little or no time for our real family, our first family. During the past few years Ive neglected them. Of course I didn’t do it on purpose it just happened we were always too busy doing stuff and only got together for family parties. During the past few weeks Ive been spending a lot of time with them and its been really nice. I love them all and wish we did more family things, because when we are all together its so much for. I vow to spend at least once a month with them. Its important to keep in contact with family members, show your kids what being a family is. You will instill what family value is.

As most of you may now this past weekend my older daughter left to Disney. I promised my younger daughter that we would have an amazing time. You know to keep her mind off of her sister leaving for a few days. So I had the perfect weekend planned for both of us. On Friday we were hitting up the movie to see her movie, Saturday and Event at the park, pumpkin patch, baking and Halloween party at night. Well it didn’t go as planned, Murphy had it out for me!!
So Friday I rush home from work eate and get dolled up for a night at the movies to see Hotel Transylvania it’s an Adam Sandler movie. She’s been wanting to see it for a while but I hadn’t had the chance to take her. So as we drove to the movie theater for the last showing we laughed and joked and quoted the movie “I do not say bleh bleh bleh” Right when we are about 20 mins from the theater I decided to put down the window of the car but change my mind immediately. But the stupid window wouldn’t go up. I start to panic. I had to turn back home and cover up the window so my car wouldn’t get rained on. The whole time I felt so bad for her but all she could say was “don’t worry momma we could have movie night at home”. And that’s exactly what we did we borrowed my mom’s car drove to Publix, rented a movie from Redbox and picked out movie snacks. It turned out to be a pretty good night, she loved the movie. After the movie was done I danced with her for a good 20 mins to “ta na na na na na na Afro Circus Afro Circus” It was amazing for her!
On Saturday we woke up late, so we had to skip the pumpkin patch. We went to the Halloween event at the park and even though it was fun all she could talk about was her party at night. We got home, baked cups cakes and a cake shaped like a Jack-o-Lantern for her party at night.
My car was still not fixed so we decided to go in my little cousin’s car. The party started at 8 so we decided we wanted to be fashionably late and left our house at 8:30 PM. We were singing and joking having a good time when I suddenly realize that the car is overheating. I looked back and saw how excited my little was all dress up in her costume. So I merge on the side of the high way to wait till it got cooled off by this time it was 9:55 PM. the entire time I wanted to cry I couldn’t believe it was happening again!! My little one kept it cool though, she assured me we would make it. I absolutely love her for that. She never freaks out, instead I freak out for her. LOL We had to go back and once more use my mom’s car we got to the party at 10:15 PM. Most people had left but a few of her friends were still there. She ended up having a good time. And a great weekend. So screw you Murphy’s Law you cant mess up this little girl’s weekend 🙂
Sometimes last week my husband and I were having our normal late night pillow talk. We were talking about how all the people we went to school with are just getting married and having babies. It made us feel like old hags LOL. Our girls are pretty big and soon we will be done with them and it will be just him and I. We joked about how we will want to go out to party because we missed out on it when we were younger. We had adult responsibilities at a very young age. When all our friends were partying hard we were home taking care of my baby. I don’t regret it at all. It just made me laugh so hard I could just image both of us clubbing old as hell. I really hope we don’t get the “party” itch.
