On a playdate at the park a dad who happened to be an old family friend approached me to say hello. Out of nowhere in a blink of an eye Alfred from Batman a suspecting woman instantly appeared hovering by his side. His wife. Sucking her teeth, hands on hips she gives me the once […]

Who has one of the hottest beach bodies in Hollywood? Hint…she hasn’t dated Justin Bieber, a Jonas Brother, or Twilight cast member. It’s 41 year old mother of 2, Jada Pinkett Smith. Super mommy to Jaden and Willow Smith is definitely A Hot Mama certified. JPS has been repping nicely for the mommies. She was […]
No matter how old we get, we all have our room or belongings at our parent’s house. For me, it would include dusty cheerleading trophies, high school love letters, and a Salt N’ Pepa poster. All worthless to most, priceless to me. If you’re talking Kobe Bean Bryant’s old room it’s another story. The 15 […]
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and respect for those that have died serving our nation.
To help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed on Dec 2000 which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.”
As a mom, my heart goes out the many moms that have children in the armed forces as well as the many moms serving our country.
Recently, Army Specialist Zachary Boyd, 19, of Fort Worth, Texas, was photographed in his pink “I Love NY” boxers and flip flops. He rushed from his sleeping quarters on to join fellow platoon members at a base in Afghanistan’s Kunar Province after the unit came under fire from Taliban positions.
These men and women have so much pride, honor, courage, and integrity.
No matter what your stance is on the war, or your political affiliation, please take a moment to remember and honor those that have died fighting for our many freedoms.
A special Memorial Day honor to my dad, Retired Reserve Army Lt. Colonel Gus Strassburger and one of my BFF’s (and Hot Mama) Air Force Major L.B Slade.
They say every mom gets an easy kid. Well, for me, it wasn’t Mo. Mo was destined to be an only child. He was a terrible sleeper….that alone is enough to make you wanna tie the tubes. Oh, the fond memories of all the sleep routines I tried with that child. I can only look […]
I’m not a fan of the whole Disney Princess thing. Yes, there are a couple good ones, but overall the dressing up in an antebellum gown, pretending to be vulnerable, waiting to be saved by a man…YAWN. I guess it’s good I don’t have girls or that my boys aren’t into princesses (aside from B […]
Courageous. Smart. Humanitarian. Talented. Beautiful. Of course I’m speaking of Angelina Jolie. The former Hollywood wild child is on her grown woman status. The 37 year old mother of 6 has revealed she underwent a double mastectomy in February. After genetic testing, she learned that she carries the BRCA1 gene thus having an estimated 87% risk of […]
As a mom and MBA student, Working Mother’s list of the 50 Most Powerful Moms of 2013 caught my eye. I was even more excited when I saw my imaginary BFF, Mariah Carey made the top 10. Way to go Bestie!!! Fellow Hollywood mommies, Beyonce’ and Giselle made the Top 10 as well. Working Mother […]
