Things The Diva Said…

“Mommy, I’m having a bad hair day.” (I never say that. Not sure where she learned it.)

Mama: Diva, why do you keep ripping the arms & legs off your little dollies & sprinkling them on my bed?

The Diva: Because I don’t like them. So I said “No, no, no.”

Mama: What are you doing? (I had just caught her looking through Daddy’s pile o’newspapers)

The Diva: I’m looking at some cool toys! (Damn you, Toys ‘R’ Us & your Big Toy Book!)

“Mommy? I need a pogo stick. A purple one. With sparkles. So I can bounce. Up. Down. Up. Down. Like that. See? Bong. Bong. Bong.”

“Mommy? Can I fly like a bird? With fur?”

“I am a good helper, Mommy!” (She tries, but yeah, not so much.)

“I love to clean up!” (Oh, how I wish that were true!)

“Oh, don’t worry about my tiny little boo boos, Mommy. They will be just fine. I just need a purple bra. With sparkles.” (UUMM…not sure where to go with this one…)

And so it goes…my kid says the strangest things. She can make me laugh no matter how mad I am. She can also make me so mad I think I am going to lose it! But no matter how insane she drives me, I wouldn’t give up being her Mama for anything in this world!

(I must have really lost my damn mind today, because I just paid $56 for a pair of snow boots for her! They were totally cute with free overnight shipping from And they are lavender. Of course! And it’s Christmas…)

    Sounds like she’s picking things up from TV and radio!! Amy Winehouse!

  2. Shan says:


    We actually have the Amy Winehouse CD. It is a good album, but I am kind of over her with all the crazy psycho bitch stuff she is pulling.

    She NEEDS to go to rehab. Yes! Yes! Yes!

    What a darling picture!
    LOL…some of the things kids say!!

  4. ChicagoLady says:

    I love the pogo stick comment. Up. Down. Up. Down. Like that. See? Bong. Bong. Bong.

    Kids can be very entertaining. Sometimes.

    Clearly your Diva and my Z are cut from the same cloth. My one wish for Christmas is cease fire on button pushing from my first born. Not gonna happen. But I can dream, can’t I?

    PS – I popped over from BSU. I love your masthead. Is that a picture of you?

  6. Shan says:

    Rae Ann,

    Well at least I am not alone in insanity caused by a child!! LOL

    Thank you for the compliment. I LOVE my header too! But, no it is not me in the picture (I wish!). I found it on the net somewhere. I worked VERY hard to find just the right pictures for my masthead.

    Thank you so much for noticing!

    Someday I will have to tell you the saga of my template…it’s complicated to say the least! Having to go through at least 4 designers just to get it almost where I want it…it’s been work, let me tell you!

    I hope you come back to visit again soon.
