Mommy in Me: Christmas Wishlist


Christmas is just about 5 days away and for the first time Chasity had an actual list of things she wanted, from her birthday she was asking for a car and she keeps telling me each day we go to a store that I still haven’t bought it for her. My response to my smart little 3 year old is that “she has to ask Santa and to make sure she continues to be a good little girl”. I’ve also added a dollhouse to the list, a baby and crib, and last but not least her famous cash register that she finds YouTube tutorials of (she watches kids on YouTube tutorials on toys as well as rerun episodes of peppa pig). I can not wait to see her face on Christmas Day, only thing I did not get was her play doh because I am soo tired of picking that up off my floor and she recently got some in the carpet so that’s a no go from now on.

Him: High School Sweetheart.

At the age of 15 living in Germany, as a military brat is when I had my first real boyfriend, his name was A. He was the first for a lot of things for me, my first love, the first guy that actually had mutual feelings for me, as well as being my first person that I was ever intimate with. However, everything that starts off good never stays the same especially when your dad is in the military and you moved around a lot, we dated up until I was about 18 because he moved back to the states and I was on my way to another city in Germany. 

Fast-forward to present day, we never really kept in touch but as soon as he was getting married with a child on the way is when I heard from him. It was a shot gun wedding and he was not sure on what he should do but eventually he did indeed marry her and once again I was left with the what ifs and thoughts that maybe we could be together again. He eventually cut me off for years but every time things got rocky with him and his wife he would find my “old number” and text me in hopes that I would respond and I always did but not as a lover but a friend. I finally let go of the “what ifs” and thoughts when I begin dating other guys and actually taking one of them serious.

However, his rocky life always tend to bring him back into the picture with me, at the time I thought I was helping but when I look back at it now I was an enabler, I was leading him to believe that the grass was greener with me but the only thing he needed to do in reality is continue to water his grass and make it work with his wife. The last time I heard from him he was making collages of our pictures together and doing things that a husband should not do, I begin to believe that he thought I would be his mistress in the scheme of things and eventually cut off all communication with him. Enough was enough and I was tired of being there for people at the expense of my own feelings. To him I wish him the best of luck in life. 

I know this was a little short and not detailed enough or as much as I would like 
but this was just the beginning, the next HIMs will bring this series full circle.

Music Spotlight: William Singe

As most of you know if you spend enough time exploring Youtube and watching a lot of gurus on the site you come across some very good music. This is what brings me to my next music spotlight, the very talented William Singe. His renditions of a lot of hot urban songs are what made me fall in love with him not only that I can actually listen to the lyrics of each song now since he sings them. Check out his rendition of “Flex by Rich Homie Quan” below:
