That’s Just My Baby Daddy


I got to thinking about this man that I’ve chosen to build my family with. He’s a pretty good guy. Statistics on black men are bleak to put it mildly. The majority are either in prison, illiterate, or on the ‘down low’… in that order. To think that I’ve found one who seems to love me and hold me and his family in the highest regard makes me pretty damn proud of myself. To watch him with our children is to watch pure love at it’s finest.

Transgendered Kids

Last night I watched Transgendered Kids on the Style Network. The Mother of a 16 year old transgendered um.. boy was just hit on by her “son’s” male mentor… who happens to have been born a woman.
Wow.
I’m so torn as to what my approach would be if my own son or daughter felt that they had been born in the “wrong body”. On one hand I know that my children’s happiness is at the forefront of my mind. I wouldn’t want them to be one of those people who chooses to take their own life because they’re just that miserable… But on the other hand I would have the obvious concerns of my child being pray to ridicule, hatred, and retaliation. The consensus was that most children diagnosed with what they called Gender Dismorphic Disorder would eventually just.. grow out of it. So what do you do? Support your child and praise them for being true to themselves and who they believe themselves to be? Or protect your child from society – possibly saving them from ridicule, pain, and falling victim to a potentially fatal hate crime? I honestly can’t say. Watch the clip below.

Drive-bys, Toilet Water, and Doggy Doo

The family and I just got back from an eventful trip to the illustrious city of Birmingham, Alabama. This is where our good friend’s the Gilchrist’s have unfortunately had to relocate for business. I was excited about the trip outside of the obvious concerns of being a victim of a drive-by or of an old school tar and feathering (kidding). I also had concerns about space. They had to downsize dramatically from a spacious four bedroom house to a nice and cozy two bedroom apartment. How would the two families fare under these circumstances? I had no clue.

…Alabama?

Last day in Alabama visiting our friends and twin’s Godparent’s… It was interesting to say the least. Traveling with twin ‘pseudo’ toddlers is so not something I’d recommend.. But we’ve got some hella good stories to tell… Lol. Stay tuned..

So this fool found the video camera…

My parents sent us a video camera so that we could capture those “aww” moments. I purposely didn’t show my non-techy Fiance how to use it because I knew that this would happen.

My Wonderful Dysfunctional Family

My babies don’t understand the concept of sharing quite yet. In the beginning, my daughter was a tyrant. – If her twin brother possessed something that she wanted — well.. hell hath no fury. Well now my son has quite a few ounces on his twin, and he proves it to her every chance he gets. Now it’s gotten to a point where we have little Wrestlemania events in the middle of our living room. Me and the fiance get quite a kick out of it each time, and I often chuckle at the thought of seeing those tiny fists and plastic car keys flying. We’re such a dysfunctional family… but are we?

Feeding Time With Daddy :s

This fool thinks he knows everything. I suppose I should be happy that this man wants to participate in feeding time, but I just want to shake him sometimes. I can’t be the only one who feels this way.

My Future Husband

First comes love, then comes marriage — or at least that’s how the saying used to go. It’s a known fact that my lovey and I are not married. We are happily engaged and have been for almost a year now. We did things the unconventional way. A, dare I say, ‘trend’ among generation X’ers. We’d like to believe that we’re a ‘hip’ urban family. Although… Strangely Continue reading

Where’d it go?

So me and my honey went out this past Friday on our date night. We try and do one of those at least once a month. I highly recommend it. We were trying decide between a movie or the club.. (Yes we still like to bump and grind on the dance floor from time to time.) Anyway, we decided to go and see Bad Teacher with Cameron Diaz. As we pulled into the parking garage at Atlantic Station, I said “Babe, this is so nice being out with you without the kids. It’s romantic.” His reply… “Why can’t you be handicapped? We could’ve parked right there.” Ha!

My question of course is.. Where in the hell did the romance go? Now for those who know Will, statements like this can be heard from him on a regular basis, but would he really have been that oblivious a year ago?

Ever wonder why there was so much romance in the beginning of your relationship, but not now? Continue reading
