8/26/2001

At this time 8 years ago I was in the hospital trying to get a life out my body. Babydaddy, my mom, Teezie, and I been there waiting since about 12 noon. Little did we know walking passed the threshold of the hospital that it would take 22 hours and some minutes for Pooka to make her entrance into the world. Lawd have mercy!

I think by this time everyone except me wanted to kill nurse Jasmine. I loved nurse Jasmine, she was excellent to me. I don't know what she did to everyone else! LOL!

My contractions were going strong and Pooka wouldn't move no matter how tight my body got. *shm*

I remember a lot about that day. Maybe when I sit down and have the time I'll type as much as I remember about that day and print a copy of it for Pooka to read later in life.

I don't believe my child will be 8 years old.

I don't believe that I'm doing pretty darn good as a mom thus far.

I can't imagine where I would be right now had she not come into my life. I can't even guess.

Tomorrow after I get off work I'm taking her to Chuck E. Cheese. I thought she was too old for Chuck E. Cheese but that's where she wants to go, so be it. She doesn't know, but one of her good friends will be there as well. Kinda wished her b-day came on a Friday so her friend could spend the night, but Babydaddy is supposed to come down & have her this weekend. I have this feeling that she'll be home at least one day this weekend if not the whole weekend...*shrug* we'll see!

Happy BIrthday Pooka! Doesn't time fly by? I can't believe my child just turned one? Remmeber when I was still huge and pregnant and ready for him to come out? LOL Our lives certainly are better with our children, huh?

Happy birthday to Pooka! Please leave out any stories about vaginal tearing when you type of Pooka's birth details, okay? She wasn't ready to come out when you and the doctor thought she should. She came out when she felt like it.

Well if her father doesn't come down can't her friend spend a night Friday?

Just for clarification...

Pooka's b-day was the 27th, the party started on the 26th and wasn't over till the 27th. :-)

Mo, time flies too fast sometimes :-( I remember the preggo pic posts showing how big the belly got! Pooka has done great things for my life, I can't speak for anyone else. :-)

Freaky, I'll blog about the vaginal tearing and all so you can read it! LOL!

She was being stubborn.

He is coming this weekend and will keep her 4 the weekend. That's the plan at least.

ARgal, you may be right cuz all them (cept my mom) like to control their environments.LOL!

Southern, on Pooka's behalf, thanks!

BB, Thanks! *smile*

Rashan, there were quite a bit of adults there and they weren't just buying the pizza! LOL!
