I read this article which mentions Lady Gaga's first CD purchased with her own money. I was horrible. I totally refused to make the conversion to CDs. I loved my little tape player. However, eventually, I just had to bite the bullet. My first CD was The Cranberries Everybody Else Is Doing It. Oh, the irony. Hm, I think that's irony. Stupid Alanis Morisette has ruined the concept forever. I am not sure I still have the CD. It's actually doubtful, but if I do, it's purely for sentimental reasons.

Last weekend, Little Miss and I were in a wedding. So, Thursday, Little Miss and I drove to the airport to pick up a fellow bridesmaid. Then, we dropped Little Miss at school. We ate a quick breakfast and then three bridesmaids and the bride went to get our nails done. We also had a nice lunch and went shoe shopping - quite a lovely day. On Friday, we traveled to Pennsylvania for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. It was a nice evening. Little Miss was very good. She was very confortable with everybody.
On Saturday, Little Miss joined the ladies and got her hair and make up done. Then, she got to ride in her first limo. The women toasted with flutes of champagne and Little Miss had a juice box. Here is a picture from the limo:

While the Husband's hockey team was still in the Playoffs for the Stanley Cup, I was talking with him. So, I was going on and on about something wildly important and Husband's eyes were starting to glaze over while he wondered how long he had to pretend to listen before he could give the 1% of attention given to me back to the game. So, Little Miss turned to me and said "Mommy, stop talking!" Husband then laughed as if she took the words right out of his mouth.
On Friday night, we cleaned like crazy people. On Saturday morning, I drove Little Miss to my parents' house so she could spend the weekend with them while we held our Fourth Annual Kentucky Derby Party. We played drinking games, watched the Derby, ate a lot and watched the Pacquiao/Mosley fight. A good time seemed to be had by all.
On Sunday, we went to pick up Little Miss from my parents' house. As a thank you, my sister and I took my parents out to dinner. Dinner was great and the kids were good - though restless towards the end. It was a good Mother's Day.
I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but Little Miss always calls the moon "Miss Moon". It's always exciting to her to see the moon. It's especially exciting for her to see Miss Moon during the day. The other week, it was a big full moon so we rushed her out to the balcony to see. She gasped and looked up and said "She's so beautiful!"
Little Miss rarely talks about school. We try to prompt her often. The other week, she was saying how two girls in her class are mean to her. I thought this was unusual so I asked why she thought they didn't like her. It's been so long that I'm only sorry I don't remember the exact details, but it finally came out that the little girls said "no" to her because she stole their toys. Awesome. So, I have the big, fat, demanding bully in school.
Two weekends ago, it was supposed to be a quiet weekend, but we ended up doing quite a bit. I'll see if I can jog my memory and remember what we did. On Friday, I met a friend after work for a drink and a movie.
On Saturday, Little Miss and I went to my parents' house, I believe. If I recall correctly, the kids played very well together. It was a quick visit. After, we went grocery shopping and head home.
