Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto? NOT!

Santa Claus goes straight to the ghetto? NOT! How do I know you ask? Well, I didn’t live in the Ghetto but, I did live in the Hood(WEST SI-III-DE!!!). I’ve never seen him nor has he gave me one FREAKIN toy(oops, sorry I was having flash backs)!

He's not flying

He's not flying

Beside the fact of me catching my uncle and father putting my bike together, if, Santa was real? He showed favoritism :-(. Why did other kids get a lot of toys for Christmas and I got socks & coats(not literally but you know what I mean)?

You know what other thing that made me think something was wrong with this Santa thing? We didn’t have a freakn chimney and if we did? How would this 500lb man fit down a chimney the size of a gutter hose?

Now, try explaining this to my kids(smart, smart & smarter) and the kids in the world today. I could imagine the questions they’ll ask.

Mama, if Santa is coming to the Ghetto do you think his sleigh will be safe on the roof?
Yeah, honey he has low jack.
Mama, is that one his rein deers?
No, honey it’s a security system.
Mama, when Santa comes how is he gonna get in, we don’t have a chimney?
Don’t worry honey we’ll leave the door unlocked.
Mama that’s not safe!
You’re right baby.
Mama, I don’t want Santa to come!
Why not honey?
Micheal Jackson saw his mommy kissing Santa Claus
Oh honey, you don’t have to worry about that,  mommy loves daddy.
Mama, how is the housing market on the North Pole?
Huh!
Mama, is Santa affected by the recession too?


With my smart kids, this Santa thing won’t fly(no pun in ten did!   Tell me, do your children believe in Santa and what funny questions have they asked you that contradicts his existence?

This Mama ain’t lying cause Santa’s not flying!

Lead The Birthday Choir…

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

Today was one of my Labor Day Anniversaries.  I celebrate 3 per year.  Huh?  Yeh, today was my sons birthday.  He made 9yrs old today.  Before baby girl came along, whenever it was someones birthday, my son James will also get a gift.  How that came about?  Who knows.  Oh! Oh!  I remember now.  If I went to get a gift for somebody.  You can believe that James was going to come out the store with something too.

Anywho,  we had Kentucky Fried Chicken(my favorite) for dinner, cake & ice cream.

The best part was when we sang Happy Birthday.  My baby girl goes to daycare & having birthday party after party, she has the birthday song memorized.  Picture this a 2yr old leading the Birthday Choir.  When she got to the ,”Happy Birthday toooooo Jalaaaaaaa.  Happy Birthday to you.   Huh?  Baby girl thought we were singing to her.LOL

That was a Mama Remote moment, “Press” RECORD.  Overall we had a great day.

Take a mile, Syndrome

Jahmia & Lisa Leslie

Jahmia & Lisa Leslie

Give them an inch & they’ll take a mile!  Is a statement used when someone is taking something for granted.  My point is…..  My oldest daughter plays Highschool Basketball.  If you know anything about Basketball (cause I don’t)?  They add an extra couple inches to the height of the player.  My thought is….. They do it to make the team and the player look good, intimidating & did I say good? 

Now my daughter is 6’1.  So I’m sure when she gets to Varsity they’ll list her as 6’3 or 6’4, that’s if she grows an extra inch.  For my daughter this is tight, this is where it’s at!  She likes being tall.  To her advantage that is.  We’re… Oops.  I mean, she knows, that this will make her look good, intimidating & did I say good? 

So, I’m going to play…… Let’s call it the Basket Ball “Give them an Inch & I’m Gonna  take a Mile”, game.  Ready, Set…… GO!

I’m 6’0 tall

I wear a size 8 (That was the game in reverse)

My house is clean from top to bottom everyday ( Yeh right)

I cook a home cooked meal everyday

I never yell at the kids

I never use my Mama Remote to pretend that my children are on Mute

You get the picture.  So, when your child tries to take advantage of an already good situation?  Remember they didn’t learn that nasty habit from you.  They learned the “Give them an inch they’ll take a mile” syndrome, from school.  How you like that?  Finally something that didn’t start at home.

Wanna play?  I’d like to hear some of your Taking a mile stories.  Please, Do tell.

Wife, Tiger, Bust Window Oh MY!

GolfCourseThe grass is always greener on the golf course lol. News, Internet & radio have been talking about Tiger Woods. I’ve seen a little bit on the Internet but I’ve never been the one to be fascinated over celebrity gossip. Now don’t get me wrong, I work in a salon & believe me we do talk about current news & headline gossip. I’m sure you know people like I know people that consume themselves with others misfortune. It’s like they are so happy that other people have problems like they do.

Needless to say, I don’t care if your grass looks greener than mine.  The Dandelions grow inside!   We are all human & all subject to the temptations of this world. Do I think he owes his fans an apology? First, he owes his wife and family an apology. Fans, maybe, only because there are children looking up to him and it will be great to show good character in the time of disappointment.

Do I think his wife handled things well by busting the windows out his car to save his life (yeh right)? Hell yeh! He’s lucky she spared, Oops I mean saved his life in the mist of such trouble and misfortune.

What do I think of the home wrecker that may be apart of this domestic dispute? I think she’s a trifling can’t get her own man and so desperate that she’ll take a married man any day!

What do I think about men that cheat on their wives (I threw this in myself)?  I think they’re stupid!  Who can hurt you the most, other than the closest person to you(closet to your check book, credit cards, car, insurance policy and you while you sleep  at night) ?  How can you trust a woman you don’t know , don’t care about you and doesn’t respect herself enough to find a man that she invested in herself? 

When it’s all over with.  I hope he and his wife can work all this mess out  & a lot is learned from this situation.  Hey, one day it might be you or it has been you.  Your Dandelions just weren’t aired on television!
