I made a daddy boo boo earlier today and it is one that I am a little ashamed and embarrassed about. It was not my finest hour and it was made worse by the fact that I giggled like a child afterwards. The incident in question was a moment of minor road rage, the problem was that I had my 3 year old daughter Violet in the car. My road rage weapon of choice was bad language and the expletive that rolled from my naughty mouth rhymed with heinous, well almost! Do you know what it is yet (said is an aussie accent)....more
To say I never cry would not be entirely true. I do cry. Quite more than I care to admit, see. But I never cry in front of others. Ever. I lock myself in bathrooms, wait 'til everyone's asleep, bite my lip and think of hundreds of scenarios other people are going through that are thousands of times worse than whatever it is that's making me want to spill over. Recently it's been getting harder and harder to keep a stiff upper lip, I don't know, maybe it's something that comes with age, you get more sensitive and more things get to me. Who knows?...more
My daughter and her friends think I have road rage. I don’t have road rage; it’s just that I frequently disagree with how others handle themselves on the road....ContinueLanita Moss A Mother's Hood ...more
My son is 9 now and if I had started blogging way back in 2000 when he was born, I would have had a great diary of memorable stories about him.
I tried to keep a diary when he was younger so that I wouldn’t forget….but then I lost the diary. I’m sure it’s buried at the bottom of the closet in my office here at home…but that’s a post all on it’s own.
When my children were younger and needed to be picked up after school or from summer camp, parents got maps with directional arrows and written instructions. The unspoken message was clear: Don't start no mess in car line, won't be no mess in car line. That's not what happened earlier this week in New Orleans, La., at the Treme Community Center. Parents in car line and the children waiting for them witnessed an off-duty New Orleans police officer gone mad.
Lamont T. Asberry, 23, was driving down a Northside street in Jacksonville, Fla., in January, 2007 when he said residents and bystanders yelled at him. Bystanders claim Asberry was driving too fast in the neighborhood. Asberry said he saw a man standing on the street with a gun in his hands. Asberry claims he acted in self-defense when he drew his own gun, firing it and killing a bystander, Pamela Shrowder, 36.
There’s a write-up by Steve Patterson in today’s Florida Times-Union, describing Asberry’s trial testimony. He is charged with murder.
