Career after blacklist

I read an article titled, “Why blacklists are important” and all I could think was, aren’t blacklists illegal? My understanding was never that it could be used for the actual protection of an organization. I always thought blacklist were illegal in every form. The truth is, they are not. After seeing the title to this article, I wanted to understand exactly what Blacklists were and why someone would feel that the lists are important. Many types of blacklists are legal....more

Diary of a tatted Mother

When I was sitting in tattoo salon almost 20 years ago, I never thought it would become the first of many times that I would visit ‘the chair’. I can even remember the smell that filled the air. It’s a familiar smell that anyone with a tattoo can relate to. I remember flipping through books, pictures and images of previously drawn characters that the artist had inked. I found what a perfect representation, of me was, at the time. Tweety Bird! But wait. It was my freshman year in college and I was such a fan of Warner Bros....more

Kudos to me

If so, very seldom do I find bitter moments about the relationship I've established for my son and his father. That's right- I said, the relationship "I" established. Perhaps I should say, the one I laid the foundation for? It is the relationship I was single-handedly, instrumental in creating by providing time, space and opportunity; to allow and make sure there was access to my child, in the event the sperm donor wanted to be known as father one day....more

Fun with child included at SeaWorld San Antonio

All things considred in parenting

First Panel Question agreed upon was: Can effective co-parenting results be achieved between parents who were raised semi-polar opposite? I will say yes. Anything can be achieved when you work together toward the greater solution. When you are working together, you sometimes have to remove yourself from the equation. Not just on the surface, but beyond.  If you are working for the benefit of a common interest, your decision should reflect concern for the common interest more so than an independent interest. ...more

Good Behavior for 100 please

There was something that my family, close friends and I observed about my sons' behavior over this recent visit that had us all questioning where it could be coming from. It's an observation I made months ago. However, as a mother I realize I can be a little sensitive and I definitely over analyze sometimes. Regarding my son, I watch him close and sometimes notice things no one else would otherwise notice. I continued to monitor him without raising the issue initially....more

Heroes of the City

Parent alert…. mommy alert….. There’s new product that my toddler and I was able to experience recently from the Heroes of the City collection. We were initially introduced to these awesome characters by way of a movie and toddler app a few months ago. In that, we discovered a new item that kept the attention of our little reader. It was colorful and nicely animated with lots of details and great depictions. The story lines were well put together and easy to follow....more

Order In the Courtroom Tour

As I embarked on the second leg of my book tour alone, I had time to reflect and meditate on the success and the things that were in store for the Baby, The Brand and The Business. I was especially excited about the invite to NYC to partially cover the American Black Film Festival as well as be a part of it myself. It was a surreal experience to know that the novel I gave birth to, had grown into a screenplay with the potential of hitting the big screen soon....more
