UPDATE!!! We made the cut!!

After a round a tamiflu for Baby DIVA and a round for myself, some clorox and lysol used on every surface in our home, and some fresh air, we can officially say after last weeks torturous illness that we are H1N1 FREE! YAY!

And just in time. This morning we were granted with a coveted spot in our MDO of choice. We met with the staff and toured the facility about 2 weeks ago and Baby DIVA was informed she was "accepted" into the program. However, we still had the daunting task of standing in the line, trying not to push other moms and tots out of the way, as we tried to score a spot for Baby DIVA.

Luck would have it, or maybe skills, that my pink hair is quite memorable. Not to mention my gorgeous Baby DIVA and hilarious 6 month pregnant waddle, so as we entered the MDO facility the smiles begin to flash our way. At least that was what I was telling myself in hopes that some of my breakfast didn't take this trip with us via my nose or something. Luckily it wasn't the latter. Finally it was our turn and WE GOT IT!!! Baby DIVA will starting her FIRST day of "school" on September 6, 2011. At the the MDO of my choosing and super close to home!

YAY! We rock. And I guess I am one of those moms now. Critter2 is a shoe in for this same program, at a sibling discount of course, when it is her time, and she hasn't even arrived yet. Motherhood and the politics. Who knew?


  1. That is so wonderful! Congrats! :)

  2. Yay! Congratulations, DIVA. =]

    And thank god on being over the H1N1. That's horrible that you had to go through that.

  3. Glad to hear you are back to good health. Not sure what a MDO is but I am assuming it's we Canadians call a preschool or playschool?

    I entered all my children to a french immersion preschool at the age of 3. Even though I am a stay at home Mom I needed them to have some of their own time as well as the structure they received at the school. They all love it and it really helped them advance onto Kindergarten.

  4. G-Zell thank you. Its good to "see" you too!

  5. Stephanie, H1N1 sucked. But Baby DIVA is a trooper and the silver lining is she snuggles with mommy for a few days. And she is not a snuggler. So that was wonderful! :)

  6. Bonnie!!

    MDO is mothers day out. Sounds like what you guys call playschool Its starts at 2 years old. Usually 2 days a week. The kids basically learn social skills like how to not kill each other. When they turn 3, the name changes to preschool. But in reality, its all the same. I really think that kids needs this structure even with stay at home moms. They still need the socialization! And mommy also needs a break now and then. HA!

  7. Yay! Congrats! And so glad you're feeling better. Must be a relief!


Tell me something Fabulous...
