No Black Eyes Today!

Umm…we are smiling but trust me – ask us if we are super sleepy….. Our sons are both in 9 MILLION activities….

She is soo amazing and I love that I have friends with various backgrounds / cultures / nationalities etc.. It makes me better and broadens my horizons with my son too. My son being exposed to things that are “un -American” is a plus…. Everyday, I am finding ways for us BOTH to live outside of the box as well as INVENT our own boxes!

I smile because of him….Even when im having a bad day, He makes me smile and i am soo proud to call him my son! My (love muffin) oops… I meant to say that MY son had two basketball games today – I guess they are called double headers…oh no wait – that is in BASEBALL right?

LOL Well anyway, he did soooooooooooooooo well it was SICK! He made a few 3 pointers, looked over at me then got a tad bit cocky!

You saw his photo that I uploaded yesterday looking like he had been punched in the face….. well each time that he made a lay up, scored a few points and started running……I realized that The only thing that I said to him was great job baby and watch your face! LOL

Parent Teacher Conference!


My son is just so so smart and I am glad! Whew – Although I am very elated that my son had all A’s a few B’s and 1 C – I STILL wanted to choke him!

Ugghhh why do little boys like to monkey around in class, why do they talk too much and cant stop, why do they chuckle and think that everything is just so  funny as the teacher walks on by?

Yeah I may be smiling but I have practiced my facial expression to STILL SMILE so that I dont end up choking my son! More things to work on via cutting up  – because I do not tolerate and deal with that CORNY and excuse of ” Boys Will Be Boys ” Syndrome……

I feel when you know better, you do better and my Lord does my son KNOW BETTER…..So he better get his act together or he will take it on the road! Mess around with me and he will be on punishment until he enters middle school >>>>>> I AM SO SERIOUS….. ( at least somewhat at least ) I went to the Parent Teacher Conference with a smile on my face and left the conference with my face and cheeks hanging low – I am officially disappointed!

Raising sons is something INTERESTING – geesh

Dear ( ME )

expressions


Do you ever wonder what a person’s FACIAL EXPRESSION would be when they make it to HEAVEN or HELL?

In this photo I can not tell at all… He seems shocked – scared and  in awe all at the same time!! The Glory of God can bring about a facial expression like this as well as the beauty of God’s Kingdom

Also the look also can depict the shock that a person realizes that they did not make it into Heaven and they are thinking that there MUST be some vast mistake!

Or this facial expression is dispalying – wow, the devil is real! Who knows….. I just pray, work on myself and ACT OUT daily to make sure that I “can get in”….

 We all will be  “making it somewhere”……just where is another story!

I cannot say NO to this face!!! Lord I left the building upset at my son then he stopped to pose for me and I turned to mush!! It is amazing how things like a hugs, a smile, a thank you etc can turn your day around as well as your mood. He reminded me laughing is important and it is something that I have to KEEP ALIVE within me!! You can tell alot from a smile or a facial expression and knowing that I can make my son smile like this just softens my heart and touches the pit of my very soul!

It reminded me how life is short and that although I need to continue to be serious and tough on my son but remembering that we all need some space and rope. I have not had a sense of humor for about 15 years and just within the last 3 I FINALLY FOUND MY FUNNY BONE!

It used to be soo bad that my sister had taken me to see a movie and stated that the star’s behavior in it reminded her of me! It was called Deliver Us From Eva“…..  with actress Gabrielle Union

 

It was true about 85% but that is still a high percentage! LOL Geesh… but I was still alwasy nice even through my over years of over seriousness! Then a girlfriend of mine took me to see a movie called Something New with Sanna Lathan and their was yet another woman who was always too busy for friends, dates, boyfriends etc. AWESOME Movie and her costar…. Mr. Simon Baker#teambeautiful ( LOL )

 It was all work..work..work and she rarely took time for herself. Her brain was always thinking of work and how to get ahead etc.  Well I have come along way from BOTH of the characteristics of those women in the movies but I still have the tendency to be uptight sometimes…. I am trying though! LOL

Smile more, Laugh more, Love more, Take Chances more etc…etc…etc..etc.. I will and I already have! Yay me!! LOL
