Lil Debbie Living Her Dream

Hey family!!!

So last night if you didn't watch Black Girls Rock! on BET then you happened to miss someone who I talk about a LOT on here.. LIL DEBBIE!!!

Yes.. My first born was one of the dancers with Janelle Monae and OPENED the show!!! Seriously no bias here BUT THEY ROCKED IT!!! I am sooooo proud of her and happy she got this opportunity!!

When she came to me and said Mommy, I want to DANCE.. I gave her the side eye of all hell.. SAY WHAT??? you are going to finish school.. you can dance later.. THEN we talked.. and I made her come up with a plan.  She had a great argument.. and it's not like she was a slouch of a student at UMD either.. 3.4 GPA and managed to finish 40+ credits in 1 yr (2 summers included) DEFEND YOUR ARGUMENT lol

Well she did and I thought about it.. and we made a deal.. and she headed for the bright lights & big city.  So if you follow me on Instagram you remember the day I sent her off.. and well it was emotional for me..

Hell it was emotional for me watching last night.. LIKE YES THIS IS FOR REAL!!! My friends, family, -efriends lol I mean it was like are you serious??? This was so huge and I'm beyond a proud mama bear!!!

So if you didn't catch the performance you can see it below.  She is the one with the short blonde hair :)

Proud of you Lil Debbie!
