Mom Intuition Is Real

There are some things “experts” say are beneficial to our kids, and we do it. We play classical music to our unborn child because it might make them smarter. We buy them black and white toys as infants for increased visual stimulation. We put our kids in Mommy and Me class for socialization. Who knows(…)

Sweet Blackberry

I recently attended a fundraiser for Sweet Blackberry. No, I’m not referring the my beloved smart phone. I’m talking about the non-profit organization whose mission is to bring little known stories of African American achievement to children everywhere. Actress, and mother of 2, Karyn Parsons (A.K.A Hilary Banks) was inspired to create Sweet Blackberry by the(…)

Simply Fabulous! Kimora Lee Simmons’s Baby Shower

There is no denying how fabulous Kimora Lee Simmons is. She is the only multiethnic female to have a successful fashion empire.

She oversees her Baby Phat clothing line as well as President and Creative Director of Phat Fashions.

She has 4 fragrances: GoddessGolden Goddess, Seductive Goddess and, Baby Phat Fabulosity

On top of all this, she has her own jewelry line, has written a book, Fabulosity: What It Is and How to Get It, and has her own Barbie. 

But what I love most about Kimora is how she balances her professional life with being a mom to 2 daughters, and a third child on the way.

We all love a good baby shower. So, no one should be surprised by the fabulouseness of Kimora’s baby shower.

The  last minute and low-key event had servings of Sliced prime rib; lobster; crab; shrimp; caviar; poached salmon; macaroni and cheese; a fondue fountain with white chocolate, fruit and marshmallows; red velvet cake; Jamaican rum cake and strawberry shortcake to serve about 50 guests. 

Among the  50 guests were Stevie Wonder and his wife, Kai, Holly Robinson Peete, and Kimora’s daughters with ex-hubby Russell Simmons, Ming Lee, 9, and Aoki Lee, 6. 

Kimora looks amazing and is due in June.

Joakim Noah and Morris

Morris likes basketball. He was shooting on a 6 ft goal at 18 months old, and 8 foot goal by 2 years old.

 

But, recently he has discovered a LOVE for basketball.

While changing channels the other night, we caught a glimpse of a guy running on the basketball court. He had a long curly ponytail (just like Morris), and a weird beard/moustache (unlike Morris). His name is Joakim Noah, center/power forward for the Chicago Bulls. He’s the son of retired tennis star Yannick Noah, and former Miss Sweden, Cecilia Rhode (by comparison, does that make ME Miss Sweden?).

From that moment on, Morris was mesmerized. He watched the entire playoff game, cheering mainly for Joe Pete. I was like, “who is Joe Pete?” Morris said, “the guy with the ponytail.” He’s still working on getting Joakim’s name right.

At first, I thought it was a clever ploy to stay up past his bedtime (I used to do the same thing when I was a little girl. My mom would watch Falcon Crest and I pretended I was really into in so I didn’t have to go to bed).

But when he woke up in the morning, he asked to watch the game again (anything that takes precedent over wii is MAJOR). You do realize we’re talking about a sport where the final “20 seconds” really takes 10 minutes. These games are loooong.

I must admit, it’s pretty exciting as a mom to watch my son be so passionate about something. He jumps up and down when the Bulls score, calls other players “jerk” when they foul Joakim Noah,screams “rebound” when they’re on defense, and gets anxious when the opponent scores. We’ll see how long this lasts, but I have a feeling Morris will be into “Da Bulls” for  a while.
