My Son’s PERSONAL Observation –


image

Okay – my son knows about politics and the things that occur in the world via CNN, the regular news stations and the things that I discuss with him – It is going on 9 pm and I am fussing at him in regards to getting himself together for school and he is ironing his clothes while chatting with me all at the same time……

Then from out of no where – he says mom remember every time there is a new POPE for the Catholic Church it is all over the news for days and it takes over the programs on television. I said yes, he said isn’t the POPE in another country and again, I answered yes.

Yall ready for this 11 year old’s child DISCOVERY!!  >>>> His next statement / question to me was this…..

Well mom, I don’t get that President Nelson Mandela died and he did so much for blacks and whites, was in jail and forgave the people for being mean to him then ran for president right? AGAIN … I said yes baby – He states, why didnt the media cover Nelson Mandela’s funeral on most of all the news channels like they do when they vote for a new POPE or when PEOPLE FROM ENGLAND GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!

Okay y’all, that was enough for me right there!! Whew – my son is indeed amazing! I taught him good and God surely is molding his little mind for such a time as this!

God Bless and Good Night!!

A Simple Conversation


image

Well, since I have established a foundation that my son can come to be about ANY AND EVERYTHING….. I have molded myself to be alright with whatever with his answers are to the things that we discuss –

However but when it comes to relationships, we talk about several things and some of his replies have me astounded more so because of his age bracket!

Marriage – he says he does not want to get a divorce so he will take his time     ( whew I am so proud of my baby) and I am glad that he understands divorce which – he is a victim of it so he understands.

THE SIMPLE CONVERSATION

ME: Jared so what is your type because I know that you are starting to think that girls are cute! I see all those little girls at school screaming and saying Hi to you all at the same time! They sound like a bunch of cats that are in pain!

SON: Mom what do you mean my type

ME: What type of girls do you think is pretty, what type of career do you want her to have, do you want her

SON: I like tiny blonde girls at school, you know white girls mom

ME: Oh okay, is that the only type that you like? Just white girls?

SON: I like only a few black girls but they have to act normal like you

ME: Baby what is normal?

SON: Not loud and stuff mom, they are smart, short, pretty dress nice  and have a lot friends

ME: Awww baby, that is sweet baby but the things that you named are only a small part of what a woman is about

SON: What do you mean mom

ME: The things that you want in a woman should be things that cannot always be seen ONLY on the outside. How does she make you feel, what are some things that you would want your wife to do for you

SON: Do you mean like talking and praying and stuff?

ME:  (I am laughing so hard ) YES! Things like that baby

SON: Oh well I want her to be just like you because we talk all the time, you always ask me what is the matter, you ask me what do I want to do with my life and when I tell you something different each week, you bring information about that field. See mom, I want someone who is like you, always there for me and telling me that I can do it!

ME: Now, it makes me feel good that you want someone who shares some of the same qualities that I have but remember you do NOT want to marry your mother or someone like your mother. You want and should marry your best friend. I can’t be her and she can’t be me.

SON: Mom, I know, that is why you are always fussing at me so I don’t be a baby and lazy in life

ME: Okay???  We will talk more later

The Mindset of Some Cultures

Although this is a cartoon BUT there is truth all through it. I mean really, which headstone is Trayvon Martin? Martin Luther King Jr.? Emmett Till? Darrell Turner Jr? and thousands of other black INNOCENT males? Huh?

Point is that I do not EVER want any of these tombstones to be be connected to or be a representative for anyone who did no wrong to be there.

Let alone yet ANOTHER “racial profile” black male..  Let alone either one if MY OWN sons!

Relationships

Hanging With My Bestie

Welp, as usual……my momma needs / wants to run around and 5 stops will be the minimum! !!

She loves just being on the go and never really has a prime destination!.  Just getting out of the house to just rip and run…LOL

image

I don’t mind running around with MY MOMMY because with her being a very young 73 years of agr, I better never complain right!!!

You would think the mall would be her firat or favorite place to atop…NO!!! It’s the regular grocery store folks!!! LOL

image

Its sooooooooo weird because I’m telling the truth too!! Hower, I’m grateful that God allows her to continually wake up everyday….  it’s a blessing because we all know that a great deal of folk didn’t wake up today. .  But My Mommy did!

Inspiration

Monday Motivations!


Today…lets crave to do better….inspire….but most importantly CHANGE….All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them. We must never be satisfied with what you achieve, because it all pales in comparison with what you are capable of doing in the future! However, in everything that you do, make sure that YOU do it with all of your power , your mind , strength and your soul , you will never go wrong!

Now the cool conversations that I have with my amazing kid!! We talked about Life’s challenges and how they are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are!  It is surmounting difficulties that makes heroes and Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict. Does my son understand… not everything as a whole ” some days ” but overall he does… He is smart and intelligent and wants to do right!

Overall, we both understand that  motivation is like food for the brain. You cannot get enough in one sitting. It needs continual and regular top ups.
