Uptown Nanny I don't trust because I've never met her, can't afford, won't come because the kids are sick, am too busy to call for the day: $100.00
5 Star Housekeeper I don't want to see my house in its current state, can't get booked, who would be yet another warm body in our already broiling and crowded apartment: $80.00
Ordering KFC delivery because Queenie is exhausted, frustrated, overwhelmed, craving fried chicken and coleslaw: $18.00
The image of Baby Bee strapped to Queenie's back in a baby carrier while her mommy scrubs a cup of dried sunscreen off the fish tank because Mr. Fumble Bumble was sure that "Beluga the Goldfish" was too hot under his aquarium light:PRICELESS.
It's a bittersweet birthday for Killer. His Papa is traveling and is unable to be here to celebrate with everybody this year. Nevertheless, Queenie is doing her best to make wonderful memories for the little boy bee.
She is buzzing with joy because, this year- for the very first time- she can write Killer a note that he will see in the morning....a note that says:
"Happy Birthday, Killer! (well, she didn't write Killer)
I love you.
And he will read it ALL by himself and know that his Mommy loves him sooooooooooo much.
Yours truly- a military wife and mommy to 3 children, all under the age of 6. Our family is stationed in the Pacific, with my husband detached or deployed 6 months each year. I am currently homeschooling our oldest son for first grade. This military wife thing is fairly new to me (we've been married 5 years)....but I am constantly trying to find ways to make our family's life together more vibrant and unique. Our three children can be summed up as follows: The Killer Bee (boy, 5 years old); Mr. Fumble Bumble, Esq. (boy, 3 years)= F.B. for short; and Baby Bee (girl, 1 year).
