The Week Is Over!! I love Fridays because I get to travel all over the web listening to great music posted by my blogging friends for Old School Friday!
I am very interested to see what my fellow OSF participants do with this theme.
"If Mama Only Knew..."

I am going to deviate from the initial intent of this theme. I usually don't let my personal life influence my Old School Friday fun but today I am feeling some kind of way.
Those of you who have been visiting my blog for a while know a good deal about my family. Well, if you have been reading my blog posts and reading between the lines then by now you know that my son and his wife of 2 years have been separated since December. I have been pretty good about not letting my personal feelings influence either party. Knowing the way I have raised my children I have tried to step back and let God do what it is he will do in the situation. My main issue is being separated from my grand baby. You can tell by the presence of the Little Princess all over this blog what that girl means to me. While she was here for the past month we got her into some habits that I pray continue when she gets back to New York. She can now go to the bathroom by herself (and wipes front & back!), She knows to take her vitamin every day ("only one, OK grandma, and one tomorrow, OK"-this was our daily vitamin dialogue-), she puts all of her dirty clothes in the dirty clothes basket, she lines up her shoes by the door when she takes them off, she brushes her teeth every day & night and she uses a "Big Girl" cup (see the picture in the sidebar!). Mind you, she did NONE of these things when she got here in March.
I can honestly say that from the time the Princess was born... No let me correct that. From the time the Princess was conceived and the family knew of her in the womb, this family (by this family I mean Her father, Me, my children, my mother, my sister & her children, the Princess' God Mother and God Father - THIS is how we roll!!!) has been the MOST DEPENDABLE and MOST INFLUENTIAL and MOST STABLE people in her life... and I will leave it at that.
So this morning my son is taking his baby back to her mother in New York. She is supposed to come back in July.
So I dedicate this Old School Friday song to Military Man & The Little Princess...
If HER Mama Only Knew... what the hell she was doing... (I will leave it at that)...
