Sup?

I been a very busy worker bee. Between regular life, being a mom and work. I have signed up to be on the “Bring Your Child To Work” committee and snack committee to raise money to fund our program. Administration wanted to see it come back minus the giving us the money to do so, so we are doin bake sales to fund it. Trust its become more of a headache and disrespecting my pockets. But its for a great cause, so why not? The end game is to make sure the kids have fun!

Also, as you guys know its #AutismAwareness month and I have been going in. We did a show on the (podcast) about Autism….working on a part 2. I’m trying to share knowledge on Autism and how effects familys and trying to get people to be more understand and sympathetic. I’m also fundraising for a walk I participated in last year called A Walk For A Difference of course I’m walking for my son #TeamZay but I also am walking for those who are comfortable with sharing their story, every person and their families as well.

On a dating tip, I have enjoy this ride. I’m glad that I get the opportunity to meet someone who is comfortable in his manhood, is respectable and a true gentlemen. He is away on military training and I miss seeing and talking to him.

Just Rambling

Have you ever had so many thought jumble up in the head of yours? Well, with the size of my head you know I got a lot going on up in here. So I got a lot going on in my life right now. So let me clue you guys in from all the sides.

Mom Life

My daughter’s military ball is coming up. I don’t have all the details and I hope we don’t get them so last-minute that I’m rushing. She is also trying out for softball, she played in middle school so hopefully she makes this time or I won’t hear the end of it.

My potato is still stalking me, but he is talking more. Watching him watch movies he has watched for years and saying the words of mimicking the sound of the words makes me happy. He behavior has calmed down some as well. So that is always a plus.

G.F.T Radio (Podcast)

Now after sitting down with my crew we are in the market to make some changes with how we host among other things. So I reached out to 2 radio stations that are local. One black owned, the other I’m not exactly see but the point man had a Spanish last name. I reached out to both expressing my interest, left my contact information. Now that was months ago… nothing as of yet.

After we finally got a logo, we made shirts. They are on the way. We all still have good ideas but we are trying now to figure out when to start one and then see how it works.

Dating 

I have been dating this gentleman since end of January and so far so good. We enjoy each others company. He met some friends and my family (my daughter & niece). He met them because they were determined to see who this guy was. LOL, they think he nice to me. My niece also let me know he was cute, I had to tell her he is mine. But I’m glad I got their approval. The real test is my Potatoes… he doesn’t like sharing me with anyone. LOL, he is my stalker and he doesn’t care who knows it.

Work

Even though leave laws changes often, I think I finally got the hang of this new job. Some days my brain checks out, but for the most part I think I got it. Over confident? Nah, I just understand way more than when I started out. My boss hasn’t been an issue so that is always good.

Motherhood No Instructions Needed

20160718_111820
Me & My Crew

Everyone says they wish motherhood came with instructions. I’m not one of them. I think we make up our own rules and what works for us. Besides, most of us don’t follow instructions anyway.

This past couple of weeks I have dealt with more thing than I thought I would.

Daughter’s Birthday:

This was the first birthday that she didn’t celebrate with me, well we will this weekend. But she hung with her father. That relationship has blossomed more than I could have ever imagined. She will be going with them on vacation so that is an added birthday present. I’m sure this birthday will be stored in her memory bank.

Son’s Preparation for Pre K:

After all the chaos it was to get him registered for Pre K, let just say my cities school system need an extreme overhaul. But at any rate, after many tears, screams and justified attitudes I got him registered. Have all his school information.

Daughter’s Preparation for High School:

Uniforms ordered and on the way. All I need is to get her book bag and watch for her schedule. Oh Lord, I have a high school student. Bus pass will be in effect.

(She is the easy one.)

Dealing w/ my son’s autism:

I think I have handled this the best I know how. I finally was able to have in enrolled in programs that will help him. His behavior is starting to get out of control and I have already got help on the way. It hard dealing with this solo but somehow I’m doing it. He will be starting OT finally outpatient. In his new school he will have both Speech and Occupational Therapy. So hopefully more changes are to come.

Mom time:

With all this taking care of everyone else, I need to learn to take care of myself as well. I can be strong for my kids, but I have to remain strong for myself. I also need to find a support group or find someone to talk to. I know I like to keep things in and it can become overwhelming so I need to talk to someone more.

Off To High School

Come September my daughter will be in high school!! Man, that makes me feel old. LOL. I asked her what her plans are and she wants to me in JROTC (military program at school) so that is a great sign. I was in it was well, so I know that will help her more than she realizes.

I have talked to her about sports, since she has experience with cheerleading and softball. I also told her she should join the drama club… if you know her you know why? LOL

Don’t mind me, I’m just talking about my mini…well not so mini me… she is officially taller than me too.
