Four



Four years ago today I was screaming bloody murder.
A Dr. (who wasn't actually my Dr.) overheard and was concerned. Who was this woman screaming at the top of her lungs?
Oh it was just me. Giving birth.
Apparently they don't get a lot of screamers. And I had greatly underestimated the pain of pushing. It sucked.

But it was worth it! I have this beautiful, intelligent, sassy, fiery little Diva who keeps me on my toes. She is clever, cunning, hilarious, mischievous, sneaky, athletic, artistic, silly and in love with life.

The relationship between Diva and I can be pretty volatile at times and one night after crying to my hubby about how hard it is to be her mother he told me, straight up, "It's because you two are exactly the same! You're too much alike!"

Crap. He was right. She's stubborn, bossy, demanding, crabby when she hasn't gotten enough sleep and bites her bottom lip when she's overwhelmingly frustrated. Just.like.me.

But oh how I love her! She is my Diva, my princess, my little "baby" girl!

Happy Birthday Diva!!! Wish we could have been there. Don't you love when you realize your kids unfortunately gained your bad traits as well as your good? I only have myself to blame for Elle's lack of patience and brattiness.
