Don’t Wake Me…I’m Dreaming

18 Aug

Hi guys! I want to tell you about my day, with this random blog posting. My day started around 6am Friday. I had to be at “The Hotel” at 7. I was suppose to work 7-3 which seemed horrible because I’m a night owl. I can stay up all night and sleep all day. But hey when duty calls, duty calls. When 3pm rolled around I was so ready to run out of work! But one of my coworkers called and was having car trouble. I was tired but I needed the hours so tired or not I was gonna work! I stayed until almost 8pm. Once I left work I was so ready to go to bed. I ate and went to sleep. My plan was to sleep the whole night and wake up Saturday morning. However that didn’t happen.

My mother decides to call me around 2:30 in the morning. For what you might ask? Nothing important at all! She wanted to know what size clothes my daughter wears. How nice mommy but at 2 something in the morning? So I give her the sizes and we start to talk about my daughter A’Janaya. To bad the conversation didn’t make it any where. My mothers phone went out. I called her back no answer. I call her back again still no answer. Now I’m like dammit Ma you call me, wake me up, your phone goes out, and you don’t answer when I call you back. Great!

Now it is 4:03am and I’m still up. Usually when I’m up, there is always one person who is up around this time of day…my dad. I call him and amazingly enough his phone didn’t go to voice mail. We talk, laugh, and joke. My father is…not so funny. I laugh more at him then his jokes! If only people could hear the things that he says. I’m sure you would laugh too. To make my early morning even better I got to talk to my youngest sister! I haven’t scene or talked to her in years, so that was a pleasent suprise! I got her number so I definetly plan on keeping in touch with her.

So no I’m sitting in my living room eating watermelon and pineapples debating weather or not I should put a movie on. Oh the decisions! If I was asleep I wouldn’t have to make any. All I can think about is the song from the 90’s Don’t Wake Me I’m Dreaming! Oh how I wish I was sleep and dreaming! Thanks Ma! Oh but I’m gonna get her back!

Yesterday I Played Super Woman That’s The Life Of A Mom

13 Aug

I think I am still tired from yesterday. Today is a new day, but yesterday I was “Super Women”. I had so much to get done. Even though I knew it was going to be a busy day I still had to get on the computer to check Facebook, Twitter, Mom 2 Mom, upload my blog posting, and upload a picture to my blog, all before I got my day started. Before I got on the computer I had to call to my school; the community college that I am attending. The fall semester starts in 2 weeks, so I was trying to order my books online, but the system was not having it. I still didn’t order my books. After that it was time to get my love dressed then me. Breakfast was a no go yesterday morning, it was a grab something and go kind of day.

We had 3 set appointments but numerous stops to make yesterday. The heat made every stop almost unbearable. It was in the car seat, out the car seat, repeat this like 15 times. Now I am sick of the car seat! One appointment was at the WIC office. She got to see the dental hygienist, who painted fluoride on her teeth. Then the nutritionist told me not to give A’Janaya any food other then at meal and snack times. Only water in between. This is to get your child on a schedule for school as well as let them know food is offered at certain time, no earlier or later. I thought this was kind of harsh, but okay I think. They are always telling me how small she is, and asking me dumb questions like: Do you feed her? She is a slender something. Yes I do you idiot, she is my child! Of course I feed her! As for her being slender, its called DNA, its in her genes. To bad she got those genes from AJ. I get really tired of hearing that question.

Any way Pizza Hut was next. My daughter went around to different tables to talk to people. She did this more then she ate her food. But at least she did eat something. Recycling, Wal-mart, The Shoe Department, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, and Prince Edward Elementary school were all our next stops. Yesterday was open house at school. We got to meet A’Janaya’s teacher! Even though none of her friends are in the same class, she will make new friends. I know she was looking forward to being in her friends class, but life will go on.

Next was my friends house, which my daughter has been talking about going over for a while. So yesterday she got to do it. I had to make 2 more stops, Kroger and Dollar General again. Once I went back to my friends house it was time to go home.

My friends daughter slept over last night, and cried for “mama” a good portion of the time. When she wasn’t crying her and my daughter were playing in their dinner. Mashed potatoes in Bri’s hair and all on her forehead. Yeah I had to fix dinner. I have a thing that is called a “hungry man” his name is AJ, he’s always hungry. He can cook but is always looking for me to cook, even when I am super tired. What can I say he’s a man and I can cook!

Once it was bedtime Bri whined for “mama” until she fell asleep. She did this literally, she fell out of the bed! After the kids were in the bed and Bri was off of the floor, it was time for mommy and daddy to have some time to ourselves. We decided to watch a movie, Knocked Up, that movie is really funny. We laughed a lot! While watching the movie AJ had to go to the bathroom. I heard him say, “Oh shit”! Bri was sitting in the living room on the sofa all by herself and she wasn’t crying. She scared him! No one was suppose to be in the living room, especially at 2 something in the morning. She was mad she wouldn’t talk to us. She didn’t say it but she wanted her mama. Once Bri got in the bed with us I fell asleep. I woke up this morning it was just me and Bri in the bed. AJ was in the living room on the sofa with our daughter, sleep. I didn’t know he left out the room. I guess I was too tired to notice. He had finished the movie without me. Jokes on him, because I had already watched it! I knew he would like it, plus it was funny so I didn’t mind watching it again.

He Whined All Night Because A’Janaya Was At A Sleep Over

10 Aug

Sunday night I went to Wal-Mart and then to a friends house to watch True Blood. Don’t you just love that show? I know I do. My daughter went with me to my friends house, not to Wal-Mart. She went to play with my friends daughter. Anyway once I finally came back home for the night, here comes my daughters father, “Where is my baby”? I didn’t know she was going to stay just like he didn’t know. So it was a surprise to the both of us. To be honest he didn’t want her to go to my friends house in the first place. He is an avid football fan so Sunday is his day, and for some reason he thinks our daughter is suppose to sit and watch football with him. After he inquired about where his daughter was, he wanted me to go get her. She was just down the road less then 5 minutes away. But he acted like a little girl because his little girl was sleeping over at a friends house.

The phone rang at around 2:38 am, he woke me up, “That’s A’Janaya, go get her”. At least he thought it was her. False alarm, it was someone with a touch phone that kept calling us by accident. They never said anything because they were calling by accident. Other then the touch screen phone calling 3 times, AJ my boyfriend/daughters father annoyed me the whole night! This morning when I finally picked our daughter up she cried when we got back home, because she was back home without her friend. She just sat in the hallway crying. However she didn’t cry at all at my friends house. She really enjoyed herself. I can’t say the same for her father. I just knew he was going to cry because A’Janaya was gone. It ended up being A’Janaya’s very first sleep over. I’m so proud of her. Her father on the other hand…. It was…. I really don’t know. I can only imagine how he is going to act next week when she starts school for the first time. I guess we shall see. And I will be sure to blog about it.

I Want To Sleep On You Not Pee On You!

25 Jul

About 2 weeks ago I fell asleep on the sofa and of course my daughter woke up and fell asleep on me. The next morning the phone rang and I jumped up to get it, not noticing that I was wet on my whole right side. I knew it wasn’t the dog, it was my daughter A’Janaya. She had peed on me! I was mad at first, but I remembered that the hall light had blew, and I didn’t have any more to replace it. So maybe that’s why she peed on me. That was the first or second time she peed on herself since she has been potty trained. But the first time she peed on me. I have been pissed off and now pissed on! So anyway every time I go to bed A’Janaya always asks, “Can I sleep with you?” I tell her NO. She says, “I want to sleep on you not pee on you!” I thought that was the funniest thing ever.
