Tick Tock


Tiny remember TIME


Get your golden milk



Skills Tools Language

A parent's job is to protect, love, provide for and care for their child
Part of that is giving them the skills, tools and language to navigate life and become their authentic selves
That is a lot
I will keep that in mind
Teaching someone how to be good, kind, caring, to apologize sincerely when they hurt someone inadvertently or otherwise, to not use people, to be pleasant, to express themselves, to be an enriching force in their and others lives, and preserving their integrity seems like a lot
Just try and also treat your kids the way you want them to treat others
DO the best you can do
Stay tuned
We will see how it goes

This is the truth

I found the truth at an open market

Taking The Bus

The Love Bus

I thought Tiny would choose the Firetruck
He sat on the truck then pointed at the Love Bus

I asked him a few times if he wanted to choose again
Each time was the Love Bus

I like that he knows his own mind and sticks to it
My baby

F is for

Arts and crafts, music and characters and food
We went to this last year

The difference is that this year, Doc McStuffins was there and Tiny who is a big fan, had a great time talking to her

So we did this

Then This

Then got into this. Tiny;s first theater and puppet show in a theater

Tried this

But then came across this. A room of puppets

Tried this photo booth with costumes.

Basically it was a great time

Eat this now

Get this


Break open
Eat slushie

Love in the sun

Spend a lot of time outside

Around pretty things

With pleasant people
Playing Tag!

Doing sweet things
Love you Tiny

Because dreams continue to come true

Do this
Remember this

Life is better when you share it

LIfe is better when you share it

I always knew it
But now that I'm in it
It is truly the best

Sharing time, love, adventures, education, heart

It opens your heart
You make an impact
You do the most good
So grateful

The spirit of each one of us is that part that is drawn to hope
When you have hope you have faith
Then trust
That you can BE a good and positive force in this life

Remember that

So many books, so little time
New one

Plus I want to read Issa Rae's and Debbi Morgan's

Extra snuggly

Whenever I read  Love You Forever to Tiny, he gets extra snuggly
Curls up into a ball
Lays in my arms
Looks up at me

So sweet

I watched that Survivng Compton movie starring Michel'le. At one point in the movie, she said of the people around her "kindness was a new experience for me" AND
I have to write this
TO remember

My mama helped me a lot
One of the best things she ever taught me is that YOU decide your own life, your own inner life.
No matter how horrible a situation you end up in, no matter how horrible the people  who surround you are,YOU decide
YOu decide to be happy
YOu decide to be positive
You decide to engage loving people, places and things

You decide your way out of sadness and into happiness
Bad thoughts? Think something else
YOu decide
You are in charge of YOU
Nobody else
EVen if someone is tying to make things miserable for you
You decide in your own space to let in the happy
Let THEM stew on their own

YOU be happy
Thank you mama!

Tiny, if you are reading this
Remember that!

Another message for you

You are my heart
I am always happy with you
Darling darling darling

Always remember this:
Ask yourself as you grow up
Who do I want to be in this world?

NOT what you want to do, not your job or achievements, but what kind of person do you want to be

AT your funeral, what words do you want to be said about you. The kind of person you have been in the world

The words said about YOU as a human being as a son, father, cousin, as a friend should be so loving and impassioned
How your love affected those you were around should be resounding
The love you put out in the world should affect others for the better

Be loving, gracious and giving and kind.
Be kind and do right Tiny.

BE THAT, don't allow anything else but THAT close to you on a daily basis.
It will serve you well. even if you don't think you have made any impact, that you are just being yourself, KNOW that you are doing well and a good thing in this world.

Also keep singing our songs.
Keep dancing
Keep smiling
Cry when you are hurting. express yourself
SO much to tell you.
I will keep telling  you and writing it down.
Words are things
These words you have to see

Trains Oi!

When I tell you Tiny is so into trains

You can't sway him

Everywhere we go he finds the trains

There is a man with a train we are to see on the weekend

Just because Tiny wants it

The excitement and the joy. Tiny is getting to ride that train

What did I get myself into with these trains!
 Have Mercy!
