Not sure if Ayesha Curry received the memo yet, but she just got booted from the top spot as resident Head NBA Wife in Charge (HNBAWINC). Sorry Boo Boo Kitty, but your time is up and there is a new Champion in town, known as King James (Lebron).  As the new Royal kid on the block, it’s only right that his Queen i.e. Savanna, reign supreme with him as you sit in the audience and Watch The Throne!

This Seems Like a Set-Up: Hilary Clinton 2016

If you’re a Black person in America, you pretty much know what a set-up feels, looks, and tastes like. We’ve been being set-up for quite some time, so it’s easy for us to recognize. Game recognize game. With, that being said, this whole lead up to Election 2016, seems like a complete set-up for American constituents to vote for Hilary Rodham Clinton.

Here are all the ingredients for a perfect Presidential set-up:

Step 1- Get the most ridiculous candidates you can find to run against the most qualified person in the bunch

Step 2- Make a pompous, arrogant, racist, jerk the front runner in the opposing party

Step-3- That pompous, arrogant, racist, jerk happens to be a Billionaire named Donald Trump

Step 4- The person running against you in the same party happens to be a pro-Black, pro-Human, anti-Establishment, Martin Luther King, Jr. marchin, for-the-People white male from Vermont

Step 5- Get an interview on the most popular radio show in the country (The Breakfast Club) and claim that you carry hot sauce in yo bag, and therefore you have swag

Step 6- Lie every chance you get, based on whatever crowd you’re in front of at the time of said lie

Step 7- Get Endorsed by current standing President of the United States of America
Best POTUS Ever!

Hilary has been in the politics game for a long ass time. She has been plotting to be President since she was the First Lady of this great nation. It’s pretty safe to say, that she was probably getting her Presidential on back then, and Bill was a mere figurehead.  Although, I am a young tenderoni, I have been in the world long enough to be affected by Ronald Reagan’s Reaganomics, which screwed Black people, George H.W. Bush and his shenanigans, which screwed Black people, Our homeboy Bill Clinton, who implemented prison reform, which in turn really screwed Black people who didn’t even commit violent crimes. So, if your Mom’s favorite cousin Tyrone, or your Uncle LeRoy is still in the Pen doing a 30 year bid, for carrying a gram of weed or crack, be sure to thank your favorite saxophone playing, not-inhaling the weed ass President William Bill Clinton. Which leads us to George W. Bush, who screwed everybody and ruined lives for a span of 8 years; his bullshit didn’t discriminate, however, in keeping up with American tradition, Black people were affected the most. And last, but certainly not least we were redeemed by the coolest President ever: Barack Hussain Obama, who actually made sure ALL THE PEOPLE were good. Now, I’m not saying Hilary will be a bad President, I’m just sayin’ the shit was set in motion a long time for her to be President and this whole song and dance they’re doing to make it seem like it wasn’t is an insult to my intelligence and yours. I know a set-up when I see it!

CO-PARENTING 101: Babymamas & Babydaddies

Co-Parenting 101

My son’s father and I recently celebrated our son’s Kindergarten graduation, and I’m sure we’ll have many more milestones to celebrate as time goes on. He and I are no longer together, but we make it a priority to co-parent. We're basically in this thang for life, or at least until one of us dies. Co-Parenting is essential to raising successful kids that won’t end up seeking psychological counseling because their parents couldn’t get their shit together for the sake of the child.
Me and my Son's Father aka my Babydaddy

Let’s be clear, I didn’t set out to be a “babymama”. It was wasn’t my dream as a little girl, to grow-up and be a statistic. I had dreams of the white picket fence, two-story home, and perfect career, while my husband and I raised beautiful black babies. I thought me and my husband would act like Martin & Gina, but raise our kids like Carl & Harriet, and on the weekends act bougie like Uncle Phil & Dark-skin Aunt Viv, and stay on the come-up like George & Weezy. But hey, in the famous words of Forrest Gump: “Shit happens!” My story didn’t quite turn out like that. Instead, I fell in love with the boy next door or the boy from the hood, depending on how you look at it. We literally stayed four houses away from one another and we were into one another like Alicia Keys’ Teenage Love Affair. Just like a childhood lullaby, first came love, then came baby, and then came Tynee` with the baby carriage. I’m a 1000% sure my story isn’t unique, but it’s my story nonetheless.

Present Day:
Now, although it began all romantical and shit, just like the seasons, things change. So let’s fast forward to today. Having a child takes hard work, patience and dedication from all parties involved. I don’t like the terms babymama and babydaddy, although I use those terms jokingly, I think it reduces both the man and woman. There is power in parenting and there is joy in co-parenting. Reassuring your child that he or she was conceived in love is the first step in being successful co-parents. So if you and your ex are looking to become better parents although, you two didn’t work out, here are 5 tips to being successful Co-Parents:

Now this is just outright!

      Leave Petty at the Door
Although being petty is super fun and your child’s other parent makes you want to throw hands and catch a case on the regular: Don’t be petty! Petty creates a hostile environment. Talking slick and always seeking to be “Right” isn’t always in the best interest of the child. Keep Petty Pendergrass at bay, even when you feel him creeping up out your soul. Think about, what it is you’re really trying to convey and be clear on it.

Words are important. How you say those words are even more important. Always be willing to discuss things. Try to be slow to offense, but always be ready for reconciliation. This doesn’t make you weak. Communicate the good and bad that is happening with your child. Don’t play the blame game. For example, if your child is having a rough time in school, don’t try and belittle the other parent and point fingers. Although, the child may be acting out due to something either parent has or has not done, try and come together and think of solutions to fix what is wrong. Have a sit down or Skype session with the child and both parents and listen to what the child might be feeling. Do not include people that did not help create this child in the mix.

Blended Family

 Boyfriends and Girlfriends
Which leads me to my next point. No shade to the new girlfriend or boyfriend in ya’ll life, but they need to stay in their lane. Babymammas and Babydaddies everywhere, please talk to your significant others individually and collectively with your respective exes, so that the air is clear and everyone can be on one accord. I know sometimes this is hard. Trust me! I’ve come a mighty loooooooonnnnnngggggg way. I mean, I have done my share of crazy and I have used every cuss word I know, but if the new chick or new dude has your child’s best interest at heart, don’t trip. However, communication, once again is essential. The parents in this scenario can’t be on some bullshit. The parents need to create a good environment so that the new chick and new dude, don’t think it’s some funny shit going on between the parentals ya dig!

Man, take time to laugh. Remember that once upon a time you and the other parent had a relationship or some type of rapport with one another. The child you both created is 50% of each of you. Take time to share funny stories that the child did while they were in your care. This makes room for a healthy dialogue and it shows the child that you two aren’t always at odds.


Maybe this should have been number one, but there is power in prayer. It’s not always shits and giggles when it comes to me and my son’s father. He does in fact get on my everlasting nerve. However, after the arguments, yelling, or disagreements, I take it to the Lord in prayer. Pray over your child. Pray for your ex. If one parent doesn’t have a job, and isn’t contributing, pray that they get gainful employment. If one parent doesn’t have a relationship with the child, pray that God changes their heart. In all things, good, bad, or indifferent PRAY and watch God change things.
