Well it worked for the Obama's...

My mother wants to move in with me. Yes, my Mother miss control freak herself wants to move into my home with me. How did this ever come up in the conversation? Mother's Day and I am talking to my little sister and she is graduating in December. I told her if she didn't want to move back home with Mom who has a 1 bedroom apartment that she was more than welcome to come to my house. I could fix up the toy room (enclosed 2 car garage) into a bedroom/living area for her. My little sister said since she was going to graduate school she was going to stay on or near campus.

Soooooo a week passes by and my mom wants to know if she could come stay with me and she could help out with the Diva and help around the house. I was caught off guard so I basically said I didn't care it was up to her but she needed to realize she was moving into her grown daughter's home. So we have been talking, she's nervous, I am nervous. I explained my do and don't. I told her that we were not at the house to be nurse maids, mom is notorious for getting sick or maids. I informed the Diva and she said she had to think about it after she found out she would be losing the toy room, but now she is on board, but she is not planning on moving all of her toys out of the room. She said Suga didn't care. She may not I don't know. It would be great to not have to worry about after school care or finding child care when school was closed on the other hand my mom can drive me crazy and may lock her in her room. We are still discussing it...

1 Samuel 1:27

Today I was blog stalking since at the moment I am all about home decor. I haven't actually done anything major, but I am getting lots of great ideas and book marking different web pages. lol I came across a blog called Wondefully Wordy ( and looking at her ready to print vinyl and came across this scripture in one of her designs

"27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him" 1 Samuel 1:27

Now anyone who knows me. KNOWS that Diva is my world, but lately I have been failing in the Mommy department. Last night she insisted on talking non stop for an hour until I told her she needed to go find something else to do. I was happy and content to channel surf and sent her off to her room to watch a DVD. This is not the parent I dreamed I would be or even the parent I desire to be. I got a Wii so we could spend more time together. I buy games, puzzles so we can spend time together, but latley we have been eating dinner in front of the tv and then each of us going to different parts of the house to watch more tv. This little scripture, reminds me that I prayed for Diva, that I desired her with all my heart and that I cried out to God that whatever the situation that one day he would bless me with a little girl. I guess I could have been a little more specific and asked a quiet little child content to sit and read but then she would not be the Diva that I love with all my heart. Thank you God for this little reminder that pretty soon the child content to talk to me for hours who is hanging on to me, who walks under my feet even though she is almost as tall as me, who want to help me cook even though I just want to get in and get in down will one day be a teenager, an adult and I do not want these memories to be of us watching tv in different parts of the house.

The Mirena Update

So I had my 1st cycle with the IUD and can I just say I may have to give my Ob a kiss when I see her at my follow up visit. It was a long cycle - 8 days but it was mostly spotting, yes spotting after 2 yrs of being tied to the toilet the fist 3-4 days of each cycle. I had 8 days of spotting. I kept going to the bathroom just to be sure I was not mistaken. Let the Angels sing Hallelujah!!!

1st grade awards

Today was the Diva's 1st grade awards day. After much discussion on what she would wear we finally settled on a dress that was dressy enough for her and casual, your going to school for me. We did have some pouting over the shoes. She wanted to wear her white heels and I insisted on her white flats. I don't call her a Diva because it's a cute nickname. lol. Diva got an award for making the A Honor Roll every 6 weeks (she was 1 of 7 students in the 1st grade that received this honor) and the Art award. She is always drawing something. I am so proud of her.

Oh did I mention she is the tallest kid in 1st grade, not girl, tallest kid
