I am a self-proclaimed fashionista.

Clothes-horse, shoe-whore, handbag junkie...you name it, I'm all over it.

The Day I Discovered My Husband's Side Chick

The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried.  I’ve  known my husband for quite some time.  We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes.  From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies.  After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to  San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again.  Needless to say life is funny.  After 8 years  we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…

To My Sons: Don't Marry a Girl Who Won't Give You Her Last Chip

Dear Kaleb and Kaden,

By the time you are able to read this letter you will probably wonder just what in the world I was talking about.  Well, from the time  your first set of teeth cut your gums and grew, you two love food...especially SNACKS.  Any snacks your father and I had, both of you were front and center with big eyes and smiles repeatedly saying "please.. please...chips please...chips please".  Well at least you two had manners at an early age.  With manners like that, who…

Uh, You Weren't Planned

You know that Nana is very funny.  We all laugh at the stories she tells of mommy and uncle growing up and all of the funny and wonderfully weird things that we did growing up.  Now they aren’t as funny as the two of you, but maybe that’s because I’m partial to you two…then again, you two are quite the characters.  Your father and I can’t help but smile and laugh when we think of the things that you do or say, and not to mention the things that you do to each other.  It’s sheer…

How to effectively deal with tantrums

We've all been there, so don't worry if your child is not always an angel. Tantrums are real and happen to the nicest of children. A tantrum is defined as "an outburst or display of excited anger," and you must admit that we adults sometimes find ourselves having tantrums of our own.…

Narcissist vs Sociopath Personalities

Recently, I was reading the newspaper and came across Annie's Mailbox.  A reader had questioned about a family member possibly being a Sociopath.  I found the article fascinating, since I was under the belief that my recent ex is a Narcissist.  I decided to do some research to determine which he may be.  



Hopefully this will help others when dealing with a person with similar characteristics. 
From Annie's Mailbox -…

What my pageant experiences will teach my daughters

I wasn't one of those Toddlers and Tiaras girls. Instead, my pageant journey began at the ripe old age of 11. There were sign-ups for the 1st annual (and what would be the last) Little Miss Greenbrier pageant and I was ready to literally dig my heels in the pageant scene.



My mom played it cool.…

"The talk"

 So I had THE question asked of me by my 6 year old daughter. You know the one, the one that turned me into a awkward and uncomfortable teenager. "Mommy, how does the baby get in a Mommy's belly?" She asks me while we are drawing at the art table. Her brothers were napping, so this Mommy and daughter bonding just took a whole big turn.







I panicked, what do I say? What is age appropriate? I want to give her the right…

Parenting Styles: A straight path through the maze

Among the perks of having babies in the 1980′s, 1990′s and 2000′s is that your kids’ friends’ parents– your friends– span many decades as well. Mom-friends who were rearing their last-born when I was fearfully raising my first grew up during FDR’s administration; some friends I’ve met through my 8-year-old entered the world while Reagan served. Consequently, I’ve been exposed to quite a number of parenting styles.

Some of my friends quote Dr. Spock, some Dr. Sears, and still others,…

5 Ways Be a Better Parent If You Are Suffering with Chronic Pain

Mom Explaining to Chronic Pain to Her Children Last fall we decided to take my youngest son out of daycare so that he could stay at home with me during the day.  At first I was nervous because I wasn’t sure how I was going to care for him during the day.  I am thankful that he has started learning how to play independently and can entertain himself for a few minutes.  During those first several weeks, I was so excited and wanted to continue teaching him the things that he was currently learning in daycare.  Things changed…
