Interesting Day!


image

We had such a good day today!!!! He was able to spend time with his other parent after his soccer game and just relax and have fun….. My other son had me laughing in stitches and trying to figure out when I would meet his girlfriend …. these college kids!

My son was trying seriously to convince me why he needed more xbox 360 Kinect Games! LOL

image

He smiled for the camera…hoping and praying that his face would melt my heart…….nope!!!! not so!

image

image

He began to start his speech like he was running for political office on the importance of this Soccer Game! LOL

image

He wanted to show me the comparison in prices with different games to show me that I would be getting a deal if I purchased them for him all today!!! This boy is indeed my son because he knows how to debate and present a case very well!!!

AFTER….my son twisted my arm to get him a few more games…..he left very happy and couldn’t wait to get in the car to head home…..

When you sit back & see some things from AFAR….God will show,expose and uncover some things you missed when you were UP CLOSE!! I am so glad that I am able to REALLY see clearly now… My son and I have endured and overcame a great deal of things and we are walking testimonies!

He was tired of taking pictures, so he acted as if he fell asleep! Overall this child had an amazing day and it is still early!

Sunday Visits


It is a wonder that I FINALLY allowed my son to even play video games because he is acting like he cannot live without them now. He is 10 1/2 and was ONLY PERMITTED to start playing video games on Christmas Day last year 2011 and he has not been the same since! LOL Last year he obtained 36 gifts in total from friends and family – God knows that he needs NO MORE than 3 gifts this year……. He is grateful but he is only 10 and I DO NOT WANT ANY MONTERS…..

Food, Fun and Fellowship is a POWERHOUSE of a triple threat if they are all good for you! The right food will keep the weight off of me……the right fun will keep me balanced and not SO SERIOUS all the time and the right fellowship is all about being with – around – associated with the right people!

House hopping is what I like to call it – visiting family and friends are the fun times AFTER church! GO RAVENS!!!

Happy Birthday Baby!!


Today is my son’s birthday and boy oh boy… from today until this Sunday am I going to be tired. Since today is  still a school day and a work day, I did not want to get home ” too late” and I made 9 pm my END TIME for the day! My son and his best friend I am sure will wear me out from 3 to 9 pm! Movies, eating, arcade gallery, shopping, and the park will have me begging for mercy by the time I am DONE.

So we left the movies and I had already seen the movie Men in Black 3 but the kids did not and everyone liked it but the birthday boy! That made me feel bad because he really wanted to see the Marvel Comic Movie, The Avengers….. Well it was starting at 715 and it is a 2 1/2 hour movie…. my body politely advised him NO! So now they wanted Asian food from a local mall and of course the mall that they chose was WAY across town from where we were located. However, it is not my birthday so I just went with it in stride…

Yes, I am having fun and who would of thought that I could have THIS MUCH fun with two 10 year olds! His best friend is hilariously funny and acts like he is at least 18 years old! NO SERIOUSLY! The things that comes out of this boys mouth is WROTH FILMING!

Done eating now it is time to go to the stores! I told them BOTH that they can pick 3 stores to go into and purchase things and we have to SAVE MY STRENGTH to get me through Friday, Saturday and Sunday early evening!.. First store is the ALL BABSEBALL HAT STORE! Like really? A store dedicated just for hats? Umm okay!

Oh gosh please just pick two hats and let’s go… I cant take it in here anymore – someone may see me and think I am a tomboy! LOL.. Just kidding but why does it take SOOO LONG to buy a few hats…like really boys? Okay next is of course…. what seems to be EVERY KIDS DREAM… the store that waste time and energy in  a child’s life as well as what I have seen unfortunately break up some marriages because the man does not want to take his duties seriously because he sets aside time for these little devices…called VIDEO GAMES!!!! ( so silly and crazy too ) I already know out of the 3 stores that they are going to walk into that this video store will take up the MOST time…..

Okay please take 10 minutes to review what games interest you and let us quickly go to the check out counter alright boys?

I said go pick out games NOT GO PLAY GAMES IN THE VIDEO STORE! Do you think that for “just for today” that they are uncapable of HEARING ME AT ALL? Lets try again….. 1…2..3..

Umm… yeah… that DID NOT WORK! LOL However, I advised them that we are NOT going to the 3rd store because they are not following directions… Okay they got to the counter so fast, I did not even have the time to take a quick photo! So the FINAL STORE and then I can get home….clean my house ESPECIALLY my messy room and just relax….. we are going to the tennis shoe store and I KNOW this will go really fast….

My son’s best friend saw that I was a little irritated and he knows that I LOVE TAKING PHOTOS..so he wanted us to take a photo together to ” calm my nerves”…………LOL “NICE TRY” but let’s go…I am tired boy!

Yes the tennis shoe store and my son’s ONLY TENNIS SHOE that he loves is Adiddas and all of their products.. So now we start the birthday shopping and he has 5 MINUTES ONLY to pick what he wants… Yes, I said it.. 5 minutes…  When I was growing up and in my era… you would be blessed to get two things…. LET ALONE your mother allowing you to pick ANY 3 STORES that you want to shop in and who cares that I give him a time limit because like I tell him.. I DONT HAVE TO BUY YOU THE THINGS THAT YOU DESIRE….I only have to buy you the things that you need and even with that being said.. there are a great deal of parents who just DONT or simply CANNOT do it. So be grateful.dot.com and hush it!

I am an Adidas Girl too, so I can understand how he is grabbing everything addidas…. Socks, Watch ( that he does not need ) and with LITERALLY 2 minutes left how in the WORLD could he FORGET TO LOOK AT ADIDDAS TENNIS SHOES!!

 Like for real… 2 minutes left and I told him he a minute for each shoe he wanted to pick out…He said I only have two minutes left!!! I said well that means that you ONLY get 2 pair of shoes…. ” GET OVER IT “…..

Alright the two minutes are up….. Did we ever make it to the counter? Did my son get frantic and complain that he would not have time left? Would he want to change his mind in what he wanted? Will he be a winner? LOL Will my little 10 year old birthday boy be VICTORIOUS in the tennis shoe store called Champs! LOL

YES!!!! He was a winner!! he grabbed two pair of shoes and the salesman went to the back and had my son’s shoe size and went to the counter….. See!!! Kids, DO HAVE THE UNDERSTANDING OF TIME!!! LOL

LOOK AT MY SON’S FACE BELOW……TOO FUNNY! He was saying to me……… Mom that was not cool – I am tired… YOU HAD ME RUSHING!! For real son??? LOL

So let me get this straigth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My little birthday boy’s little dilema!  >>> He mad at me cause he only had 5 minutes to pick out ANYTHING HE WANTED! LOL – WOW

Yaaawwwn


When my son wants to PRETEND that he just wants to ” look around ” in the video store… I simply just YAWWWN! He has only been allowed to do the whole “video game thing” this past Christmas of 2011 and I guess he is in love! LOL

He walks around the store looking at things but FORGETTING not to touch… he picks up things and ALWAYS assumes that he SHOULD get “whatever” his little fingers picks up! He smiles at me a great deal like a  man who is trying to FLIRT with a woman he is interested in… I just stand there…look at him and YAWWWN like I am so tired and want to get to bed! LOL….

He then comes over and gives me quick hugs and says things like… Mom you look pretty…..Mom are you feeling okay….Mom how was your day…etc..etc..etc.. Then again I just simply YAWWN…. LOL  Dont get me wrong…. my son always says things like this to me anyway because he is a VERY caring boy…

But for some STRANGE REASON.. LOL When we get into the Game Stop and E – B Games / EB Games  he just places an emphasis on how he says it….LOL
