Teeny Weeny Afro

She is rocking a Teeny Weeny Afro feeling herself as she enters the room wearing a floral dress and pink pumps that accentuate her black beauty; they call her FIERCE and they should because she is beautiful, confident, and smart. 

Tight coily  curls hug her scalp as oil glistens from her coils; everyone in the room is in awe because they have never seen such a beautiful black queen before. 

As she exits the room she sees their stares and she smiles, she is comfortable in her own skin and it shows; black, beautiful, confident, and smart accessorizied with a Teeny Weeny Afro. 

Prescription Error

If it doesn’t look right, question it 🤔. My son is an asthmatic and was diagnosed with bronchitis on yesterday 5/17/17; one of the pulmonary doctors prescribed him steroids (prednisone) that helps with inflammation.

 

When I called to check the status of the medicine prescribed the pharmacy informed me they would have to place an order for steroids (prednisone) because they didn’t have enough in. The first thought that crossed my mind was, how can you run out he only gets a small bottle. When my husband went to pick up the bottle today 5/18/17 we were in total shock by the size of the bottle and what the label said , my son is only seven years old 😲. 


I understand that we as individuals tend to put total faith in our doctors because we think they can’t do any wrong but realize they are human and they make mistakes! Just imagine if  my husband or I would have gave our son this dosage. Doctors are busy but when it comes to life or death they need to be more careful. I will be addressing this tomorrow with his pulmonologist!! 

Live

If you knew today was your last day on earth would you LIVE? Would you stop worrying about the cares of this world and focus on being happy, or would you let the cares of this world make you sad? All of us wake up with an agenda of what has to be done and by what time; we are not enjoying life because we are too caught up with what’s going on around us, to be frank those things will still be going on when we are DEAD. Please stop putting off today for tomorrow because there is no guarantee that we will even live to see it. 

I have always been one that while cooking I  am also washing up the dirty dishes as well, I never want to come back to a sink full of dishes after a tasty meal and full stomach. Some people are totally opposite and they may do their dishes after their meal, but can you really enjoy your meal if you’re 💭 about those dirty dishes in the sink? My rationality of this is I’m not savoring my meal  if in the back of my mind I have more to do on my agenda so I can’t enjoy that moment. Another example would be if you’re hosting a party, would you want to be in the kitchen cooking or enjoying your guests? Ninety-Nine  percent would say enjoying their guests that’s why they had the party in the first place. To truly enjoy the moment one would prepare their platters in advance so they could also partake in the food and enjoy their friends. Life is meant to be enjoyed not looked upon as a chore. Some people hate life because they don’t know about the joys of living.  It’s the little things that we must be thankful for and it’s only then that we will appreciate the bigger things. Stop thinking about tomorrow, or even the rest of that day, but in that very moment start LIVING, start LOVING, and start LAUGHING in that very moment LIVE!!

My Natural Hair Journey

Nappy Fro

Did she just call my fro nappy? Wow I’m shocked that a black sista would stoop so low to criticize a texture that she was born with and is probably covering up with a weave or has been altered with a perm. She said “I wouldn’t be caught dead with a fro, especially a nappy fro like hers!” I stood silent still trying to take it all in then I walked away. 


I was not going to lower my standards by responding to her ignorance . I’ve learned that every action doesn’t deserve a reaction so I walked away with my head held high and my Afro puffed out proud to be rocking a, as she called it “NAPPY FRO!”

Cooking with my Son

I love cooking with my son, I never want my son to depend on anyone to cook for him. When he was much smaller he asked could he help me in the kitchen and I couldn’t have been more happier. I never want to force my kids to do something they don’t have a love for because I feel when their forced they resent what they are doing. 


 He is very hands on it’s amazing how he grew up on me he went from a chair at the stove to standing there  without one. We cook everything from soup, spaghetti, smothered pork chops  you name it!


I think every parent should cook with their child it builds a relationship like no other and they learn. My son honestly think he knows more than me, LOL. We recently did a YouTube video where we made Bacon Wrapped Smokies, click on the link below. 

Bacon Wrapped Smokies 
He may be the next Marcus Samuelson, Bobby Flay, or Moe Cason!! I love being a parent it’s the greatest job a mother could ever have.
