Dear Son, I want you to know…

Hey Cuties, I've gotten a bit personal today; I've been all in my feelings about parenting. My son is wrapping up his last two months of elementary school and I feel some type of way. I'm far too young {36} to have a middle school child. It seemed like this phase was light years away, yet we are here. I'm sharing a love letter to my son, my first born.

WHERE ARE THE PARENTS OF ADOLESCENT KIDS SUPPORT GROUP?

Hey Cuties, How was the weekend? I spent my Saturday running around with Nori. She has quite the social calendar now, how did we get here? She had her first birthday party invite from daycare.  It had a nature theme, but she was NOT for touching the animals. I did touch the chinchilla, it was so cute. Other than talking our heads off toddler parenting is chill right now.  That older one... yeah well...

Happy New Year : MimiCutelips 2015 Year in Review

Hey Cuties,

We are down to the last day of 2015, Happy New Year! I appreciate you for rocking with me. I hope I've shared something that connected with you one way or another.  I read all your comments and I try to reply to each of them. I don't take your time for granted, you could be anywhere in the world but I appreciate that you come here to chat with me. This year has been major in a rather low key kind of way. Sometimes it takes some reflecting to realize just how far you've come. That applies across the board in life, when we are in the thick of things it's hard to realize the how far we've come. 2015 was a year of preparation for me and let me tell you MIMICUTELIPS IS READY HONEY!

Happy Father’s Day Babe

Hey Cuties,

Father's Day is this weekend, and I hope you are ready to celebrate the Father's in your life. In 2004 my Babe and I became parents and Father's Day had a new meaning. Not only did I celebrate him I also celebrated the man that raised him.  The ONLY thing I wanted in my child’s father was for him to be hands on; I got that and more.  I was raised by a single parent so there weren't any Father's Day celebrations going on in my home.

Dreams Came True in 2014

2014 is coming to a close and like many of you I'm reflecting on my year. I did a lot of cool things, I went a lot of cool places, I forced myself outside of my comfort zone and it all paid off. Sometimes the payoff didn't come until down the road and other times the payoff was simply personal growth. Either way I was receptive to it.

Earlier this year I attended the Newsbabes Bash event last minute and I had the time of my life. I went alone and met almost all of my favorite news reporters. They were all really nice and it was for a great cause; Jim Vance was my favorite for sure. Full story HERE

First Time Mom – 10th Anniversary

I was 24, I was a girls girls. I was out partying five days a week. I'm talking life of the party, if the doors were open I was there. I had a job I liked, I made pretty good money, and I had a little car and a new apartment. Life was moving fast... I had been single for the first time in my adult life for two years. I was living it up and all about making up for lost time. I met this little cutie pie and I started spending a lot of my time with him. Little by little I was spending less time being the footloose and fancy free party girl and getting to know this cutie. As life would have it this cutie pie and I would collaborate on one of my greatest projects to date. On, Wednesday, November 17, 2004 we would welcome our son, Nasir Robinson to the world. I was a first time mom, now what?

Does your child love the skin they are in?

You ever had an "ah ha moment" (c) Oprah and you get really excited and the wheels in your head rotate at an excessive pace? Well, that happened to me on Friday and I had to blog about it. I think I've found my purpose and I'm ready to share it with the world!

Backstory: My friends and family would always tell me oh you are so good at {insert something here} you should start a business. My reply was two parts, yet the same all the time. "I'm afraid I will no longer enjoy it if I did it for a business." "I have so many passions I don't know how to focus on one".

How long is your parental rope?

Today parenting almost got the best of me, it didn't knock me out but it most certainly knocked me down.
PARENTAL SCORE:       Me: 0     Parenting: 123,456,789
My 9 year old son got in trouble today, I don't mean a little trouble I mean suspended from school trouble. What did he do? He decided to get into a fight with another kid at school. Does he know better? He most certainly does yet here we are. There is nothing more disappointing than a phone call from your child's school. First reaction is panic; you think OMG something happened to my kid is everything okay. Your second reaction is OMG what has my child done now.  Well it all went down something like this.
