The History of Me in Music

Music has been a big part of my life from the time I was a baby. When I was little I would watch my mom getting ready to go out and dancing in the house to music.

Kenya Moore Booty Bootcamp Review

If you know me you know I love The Real Housewives Series and one of my favorites is Atlanta. I think Kenya Moore former Ms. USA is a great addition this season. That being said when I was asked by the wonderful @bookieboo from Mamavation if I wanted to review her DVD Kenya Moore: Booty Boot Camp , I was like "YEAH" I want a stallion booty.

The Documentary Bully

This documentary Bully had to be made and the sad thing is a lot of the people who should see it won't because the Motion Pictures Association of America has rated it R — Restricted meaning children Under 17 Require Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian . They gave it this rating because of the profanity in the movie which I feel needs to be in it for everyone (children) included to get the whole picture. Bullying is not pretty and for us to say we don't want are kids to hear this language is absurd since it is coming out of their mouths. As a mother of 5 kids ages 20, 18,12,11 and 8 I will do my darnest to take them. Bullying is not a right of passage for kids. This movie shows who the victims and aggressors are and the sad thing is they look just like our kids. Bully comes out in select theatres in New York and Los Angeles on March 30. When it comes to my area in Miami I will be first in line.  It is being released by The Weinstein Company and was written, directed & produced by Lee Hirsch.

" The Talk "

As a Mother of a 12 year old black child I have had to have "The Talk" with my son on more than one occasion . Not about the Birds and the Bees but about being a young Black man and the responsibility & stigma that carries. I have told him numerous times don't walk around with your hands in your pockets. Don't put your hoodie on when it isn't cold or when its dark out. Don't be loud and play in the streets. Don't get mad or let it bother you when you walk in a store and you get followed. Don't get mad when you get questioned " What are you doing here where do you live" even if it is in your own gated community. I have told him since he was much younger, people are going to judge you on what they think "Black" means. He has been told in school by a classmate when he was the class monitor "I don't have to  listen to you your black". I have had people (strangers) come up to me when he was a baby and rub his head (hair) and say "Oh his hair is soft and not oily". I have had others come up and touch his skin and say " Wow he is soft" and when I asked what does that mean they will say "I just thought his skin would be rough".Here's another one he gets a lot " What kind of food do you eat at home". He comes home mad and I have to explain that it is just ignorance that causes  people to do those kind of things. Why should I have to tell him these things before he leaves the house ? Instead of just saying be careful and have fun. Because I want my son to come home alive.

First Day of Spring

OK , so today is the first day of Spring and I said I was going to have all my Spring cleaning done by today. Well guess what, I didn't and to be honest I didn't even start. I did start painting my daughters room "start" is the key word. We went to Home Depot and I let the girls pick out what colors they wanted one picked hot pink the other lime green. So green and pink it is ... I  didn't take everything out just moved things around ( 2 full size beds, dresser, chest & tv ) plus more stuffed animals and toys than I care to mention. I have posted some before pictures and when and if I finish I will post some after ones.
