Me Time

At last, The girls are all safely tucked in bed and sound asleep. This is the part of the day where I sit down and sigh. AAAHHH!!! Never mind that it is after 2:00 in the morning and I have to be up by 6:30 so that I can drive Princess Sharaya to Senior Camp. This will be the first time I'm going as a counselor. I have to go so that I can make sure all the boys stay far away from her. Well, not really. I just think it would be neat to be there with her. Thank goodness my dear friend Yvonne is going with me, because I don't want to be in Sharayas space with her friends and Yvonne and I always have such a blast together. She is the best friend a girl could ever ask for. So I figured if Yvonne was there, she'd distract me from keeping too close to Sharaya.
Speaking of Sharaya, she is the Princess and the Pea kind of princess. I started waxing her eyebrows along with mine, after I was forking out 45 buck-a-roos every two weeks. I have to wax her brows in front of a mirror because she has to take a peak, every time I pull the cloth or tweeze what was left behind. If I get to close to her face, she gets a headache or some other kind of crazy sickness. I think she is allergic to me. As long as I stay 6 feet away she is fine. If I get 3 feet away, She starts feeling a heat wave come over her, unless we are wrestling, then she is fine. Just for the record, I can still take her down!!! HA HA However, we haven't wrestled since we moved into our small quarters, and now I have a bad back, but I don't want her to win, so I think we should keeping holding the match off. By the way, She is one tough cookie!!! As soon as Hunter gets a little tougher, I'll have to try and win her. Cant wait for a real home and a new opponent.
Hunter is my Snow White princess, she is always helping out with her younger sisters. She has surprised me by cleaning my whole house several times. Like I mentioned before, she is very sensitive. There was a time, where I was so stressed, my house was a mess, I wasn't feeling well, and I had a million things to do. As I ran my errands, Hunter took it upon her self to clean, and I mean dust, vacuum, sweep, mop, and scrub the house down. I wonder how she will react to the death claws of Mothers Waxing. HEHEHE!!! She has just 18 months left before we can find out.
Isn't it funny ( to all the moms out there ) how when we finally have time to ourselves, all we do is think about our kids? My sweet Honey and I always seem to talk about the cute, funny things our kids have done whenever we are alone together ( which isn't as often as I'd like it to be ). I guess this is because they are my life. I LOVE being a mom to all these girls even if it is pure craziness.
Quote for the day~ Children are a comfort in our old age, and they help you achieve it fast too ~
