“Mom, am I a black or a white?”

Yep, my 6 year old just asked me this. To which I responded “what difference does it make?”

I was sort of taken aback my the question, but I was not entirely shocked. This kid hears and internalized everything. I tried to help him understand that people come in all different shades, and inside, where it really matters, we are all the same. He seemed satisfied with that answer.

Complicated world we live in.

I just want to protect my innocent boys. I want to tell them that people will be nice to them and not deliberately try to hurt them. I want to tell them that they will always be safe and cared for. But I know that I can only do my best for them and leave the rest in God’s hands.


“Is it my birthday?”


Once we crossed the threshold into 2013, the kids only have one thing on their little minds – BIRTHDAYS!

Since their Birthdays are in February and March (turning 4 and 7…eeek, so grown) they know that they’ll be celebrating sooner rather than later. All day I get questions like “how many weeks till my birthday?” and “will I have lots of presents?”

They are excited, so I am getting kinda excited! Birthdays really are the best.
