The Diva’s Letter To Santa

My girl, well she’s very imaginative. And very generous. She is also kind-hearted and believes that with just a little magic and a couple of wands, she can make all the bad people in the world turn nice and make all our dreams come true. I don’t know how I’m going to tell her those […]

How Do You Effectively Discipline Your Child When The Only Thing She Truly Loves Is School?

How Do You Effectively Discipline Your Child When The Only Thing She Truly Loves Is School?

I’ve read all the parenting books. I’ve even watched SuperNanny while laughing my ass off. I’ve taken away much-loved toys, blankies, makeup and TV. I’ve tried to employ all of the supposedly “effective” parenting tactics, to no avail. I’ve spanked. I’ve yelled. I’ve threatened to duct tape her inside a closet and/or beat her like an unwanted, red-headed step-child. I’ve […]

Never Forget, Never Again: 9/11 Eleven Years Later

Today marks another 9/11 anniversary. Eleven years since the world changed and unimagined fear and terror touched every citizen of this country. Eleven years ago today, I found that the world I would raise children in was irrevocably changed. I knew that my children would not have the same carefree childhood My Husband and I […]

It seems like just yesterday that you came into this world, fighting for you very life. In the blink of an eye, you went from a tiny, little baby to being a little lady. Today, you are seven years old — Mama’s Big Girl — amazing, beautiful, smart and often frustrating. You have grown so […]

Ghetto-Assed Adult

That is what came out of The Diva’s mouth yesterday, shortly after it came out of mine. Ghetto-assed adult. Bad Mommy. You see, yesterday afternoon, as I was going to unlock our gate so that we could go get Daddy from work, I noticed that someone had put a lock on it. One I did […]

Happy 6th Birthday, Baby Girl!

Six years ago today, you were born and my life has never been the same. I am in awe of you, baby girl. You have become a very intelligent and independent little girl. You are so beautiful, I can’t believe you are mine. I guess your Daddy and I make pretty kids, huh? The first […]

We Are The House Of Phlegm. And Puke.

We are the house of phlegm now. And puke. And fevers. My family has been hit hard with a nasty virus that will not die. It just keeps morphing into something new every two days. The Diva caught this thing the weekend before last. She had a fever, stuffy nose and cough and was home […]

The One Where I Let Her Go To Her First Sleepover, Part Deux

Remember a couple weeks ago where I said The Diva was going to go on her first sleepover? Well that didn’t happen. The little girl’s older brother got sick, so the Grandfather called to cancel at about 3 pm the day we were supposed to do it. Then I didn’t hear from anyone. I tried […]

The Tooth Fairy Pays WHAT?!?!

The Tooth Fairy Pays WHAT?!?!

Last Saturday night, The Diva announced that she had a loose tooth. Her first loose tooth. She’s very excited. I’m a little weirded out. I didn’t think she would start losing teeth at this age, but apparently this is all normal. So now I get to play The Tooth Fairy. It dawned on me yesterday […]

The One Where I Let Her Go To Her First Sleepover

I thought I had more time. I didn’t think I would be faced with this particular situation quite yet. I thought maybe it would happen next year, not in kindergarten. But I have agreed, with great trepidation, to allow The Diva to have a sleepover at a classmate’s house tomorrow night. I am still not […]

Just Another Wordless Wednesday…{Santa Was Stoned}

Look closely at Santa’s eyes…does he not look like he is stoned? Methinks Santa was toking on the ganja with the elves behind the toy shop. Doesn’t The Diva look adorable? I loved that dress because it reminded me of a big Christmas present. And no, the stoned elves did not make the picture look […]

The Diva’s Christmas Program 2010

I realize it’s after Christmas, but I was busier than a one armed man in an ass kicking contest last week so I didn’t have time to post these pictures and videos. But Christmas is my favorite holiday and I look at it as keeping the Christmas feeling going a little longer. Without further adieu, […]
