A Beautiful Poem by Langston Hughes

I, Too, Sing America
by Langston Hughes


I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I'll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody'll dare
Say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen,"
Then.

Besides,
They'll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed--

I, too, am America.

I'm going to print this poem out for my son. He is very proud that President Obama was elected. He told me that now he knows he can be president someday too! He gets it!

Yesterday was HISTORY IN THE MAKING! My son will remember this exciting event for the rest of his life.

Don't Give Your Son Girl Yogurt.....

in his lunch. That is what my son told me yesterday. At lunch a girl bully made fun of my son who had a DORA yogurt cup. Well of course the yogurt came home unopened. This bothered my son so much that he got sick at school and I had to go get him early. He even had a play date arranged and he passed on that. So no more girly yogurt for my lil man! I feel I have a lot life lessons to learn for my kids to have a better day at school.

Who's Child Does This..ugh

"Mom,I farted and it smells good" and this came from my 4 1/2 little girl. Where is my girly girl? The things that she says is just remarkable and I shake my head a lot. Who says silly stuff like this....oh yeah my little diva I guess!

We had girl night tonight and watched the Princess Diaries 2. I had fun watching it but Lil Mama was into talking so I missed things here and there but its okay!

Lil Man is at a sleepover and it killed me not calling and checking on him. But he is 7 yrs old he told me and reassured me that he will be okay and I didn't have to call. How did he know I wanted to do that?? He is such a sweetheart because he was very concerned about his sister being here all by herself but I told him that I was going to watch movies with her and she will get extra love tonight. He thought that was cool.

Hubby is out and about...Saturday night is his NITE OUT so he heads out that door around 7pm. I used to stay awake until he came home because I was worried about him. Nowadays I sleep right through him coming in. Not sure what that means. Do I trust him to get his ass home w/o incidents or is it I just I got tired of stressing and sleep was far more important. Okay maybe a little of both, lol!

Well its 12:30 am and I writing on my blog...wow can't sleep, lol! No I'm just making up time that I didn't get to work on here...wink wink. Off to bed I go now. Goodnight.

Target-Just Say NO!




I need to stay out of this store. If you see a short chubby redhead heading into El Cerrito's Target, tell her to go home, its me! Just kidding of course.

That store is EVIL because it makes me spend my money on crap we really don't need. I love to buy stuff on SALE. Today I put back the $22.00 Guitar Hero (reg $80) because we already have GH on Wii why do we need one for XBOX! They have 75% off toys and I saw BIG TOYS for under $20 and that hurt walking away. I went in with $25and no purse w/credit cards and that was a good move.

I need to go to therapy for my TARGET ADDICTION. Sad thing is Lil Mama loves to spend her allowance at Target so she is starting out early.

I really suck as the tooth fairy





I did it again...I FORGOT TO PUT MONEY UNDER LIL MAN'S PILLOW....AGAIN! He comes over with lip out and his tooth in hand. My heart fell to the floor because that is a very bad mom! We had a late night and I just wasn't prepared. Totally forgot when I went to bed and he woke up before I did. I SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gave him a couple bucks and told him that the tooth fairy OWES ME. He was okay with that but still wants to put his tooth under his pillow again tonight.

Cleaning Fairy.....


Where are you today????

I have laundry, dishes, beds to be made, dusting, moping that is just sitting here waiting for you to do.

I have may too much stuff to do online today....geesh!

So I guess someone else has the fairy today...when is it my turn damn it!

Well guess where I'm going to be for the next couple hours....yes doing my housewife duties!

My Virtual Model

This is what I look like now:
This is what I want to look like in 4 months:

It was fun designing my virtual model, if you want to make you one go to: http://www.myvirtualmodel.com/en/index.php

I'm not 20 anymore!

Damn I didn't get that memo! I got a big eye opener the other day...I can't move a bedroom w/a big bed and dressers around all by myself!

Why did I do move it all by myself is the big question on every one's mind. Well sad to say but my hubby is not very helpful around the house. First, he wouldn't want to since he worked so hard at his job then I probably would have had to wait til next year to get him to do it anyways. I know that's harsh to say but it reality in my house.

I love to rearrange my house and I thought since we were not moving I needed a change in our room. I haven't like how it has been for a long time. My hubby has to crawl over me to get in and out of bed so that was a PITA. The kids are getting bigger and they don't need me hovering over them every moment so having a place of my own would be nice. When I finished it looked very nice and I enjoy my space now. But was it worth the pain I had to go thru....ummm YEP but I shouldn't do that again.

The next day I woke up in some major pain. I couldn't move my neck and wow the pain in my back was horrible. Of course its a work day so I had to drag my booty to work. I looked pitiful so my boss sent me home after 2 hrs. I came home and went right up to my bedroom and laid down. The best thing though was my room was clean and it felt real good. I did have some quiet time while everyone was gone and that was very nice. Then the kids came home and took care of me. I rested all day hoping that the next day I would be able to work. I can't miss work because that means I get no $$$. Sucks but being a waitress I depend on my tips to live.

Lesson Learned: I AM NOT 20 ANYMORE so no moving big furniture all by myself ! Getting old sucks sometimes.

Damn, how am I going to move the next room around? I might have to bribe hubby with a video game or sex. LOL!

My Fault...really?

Yesterday my lil one Sahara told me that she was is in a bad mood because she didn't get any sleep. Then of course I asked why and she told me it was my fault because my hair was in her face all night. I looked at her like "really...my fault" and she looked right back at me with this attitude and look in her eyes that I knew it just wasn't worth my time to argue the fact then she should sleep in HER OWN bed not mine! I guess next time I'm in a bad mood I can use the excuse "Your feet were in my back all night so I didn't get any sleep". Kids! Geesh!

Am I a mean mommie?

I banned my kids from playing with the kids next door. We have had problems with them FOREVER. The boy is 8 and the little girl is 5 and OH MY they are a piece of work. They pick on my kids and put the fear in them to do things...calling them scary cats. My kids have got in trouble many times for doing things they know they are not suppose to do but did it anyways because the kids next door push them into it....knock on other neighbor doors and run. Okay that's okay once or twice but almost everyday. I don't want my kids to have reputation that the KND (kids next door) have. They are not allowed to even go by 2 neighbors house because they stole items out of their yard and lied about it. I don't allow my kids to go around the block w/o an adult but KND can go whatever they want.

Yesterday the KND girl taught my lil girl a new word....Fucking Brat! My lil one is 4 but she holds her own with the older kids. She comes in crying A****R called me a FUCKING BRAT and then she kept saying it. She got put in timeout for saying it to her brother....ugh!

Then later the KND boy came over and open our mail slot in the door and yells to my son.....MY MOM SAYS YOU CAN'T COME TO MY BIRTHDAY! That hurt my son a lot. He is a bit sensitive but still I would have cried too.

All I can do at this point is BAN my kids from playing with the KND!
