Hair Today…


On my birthday I got to see my lovely niece Jazmine! I was soooooo happy–it really made my day.  She told me she has been waiting for me to pick her up and asked if I had a “girl” room at my house for her.  She is four years-old now.

Seeing Jazmine made me recall the hair tragedy.  When it first happened I was highly distraught.  I mean you just don’t cut a girl’s hair!  I was far more traumatized than she was! In fact when she saw her bald fade, she could not stop laughing she was so amused with her new look!  Now when I retell the story I am laughing right along.  Especially when I describe  the absurdity of the person who tried to GLUE her ponytails back on!!!  As if I wouldn’t have known something was off!

The moral of the story is what seems like the worst thing that could have ever happened today can amuse you tomorrow.  Besides, hair does grow back!

Coming Home!


My brother and his family are moving back from Seattle.  I am so excited.  We have started the countdown.  They will make the three day drive towards the end of the month.  The original plan was for me to fly out and accompany my nephews home on the plane.  However, my brother and sister-in-law thought it would be a great experience to have the boys make the drive with them.

My sister-in-law got the boys a gift to open each morning of their trip.  My nephews are so excited about moving back.  My youngest nephew was just two weeks old when they left for Seattle.  He is two now and doesn’t remember living here.  My oldest nephew (who’s four) is happy to go back to his old house.

He calls me quite a bit to express his joy of moving back.

“Auntie, I’m moving to my old house. You remember the one with the wing (swing) in the back yard?”

“Yes I remember.”

“I’m going to bring Uncle and Kierra a popsicle.”

“LOL…You are?  Do you think the popsicle will make it?”

“Yes, Auntie.  I get to go to a new school with Ian and Imani.”

“I know, I can’t wait to see you.”

“I want to play super powers with Uncle.  He is a mere mortal Auntie.  And I’m going to draw Uncle and Kierra a picture at school.” 

“I’m sure they will like that.  Have you been helping mommy and daddy pack?”

“Yes, and I pack up some of my toys.  I get to get new ones Auntie!”

“Wow! I miss you and can’t wait until you get here.  I love you!”

“Love you too Auntie, bye!”

He is too funny!
