Suddenly I feel like ol’ Spencer Tracy and Uncle Bernie Mac
because my child has brought home a suiter – my child is black.

Though that’s not the problem, for I am black too.
But our daughter didn’t bring home some big burly dude,
dressed in wife beater who treats her rude.
Conversational chauvinist – whose ethics are crude.

She brought home a girl, (latina & cute),
and so the big hearted me, has welcomed her too.
Ooo!

They are officially a couple. Oh yes – a femme deux.
How should my face look? What should I do?

As Christmas approaches I’m glad to have guests.
I left my daughter in the South — she found me in the West.

Recently I moved from Texas to Arizona – for gained good;
my daughter then lived in a popular Houston, TX hood.
She located me promptly — as family is understood.
I’m on my best mommy behavior — as only I would.

So I birthed two girls and the eldest has brought us one more.
Now the dinner table will have 4 women amidst the dining score.

Will it be awkward? The Christmas dine will tell us more.
So far it’s been quite refreshing and anything but a bore.

So today they’ll awake to score some employment.
Because having no cash – yields little enjoyment.

My daughter is 20 and her suitor is 21.
They’re into socializing and having plenty of fun.

At 20 I was seriously committed and had a kid.
At 20: Whatever I wanted to do is what I did,
however, I had a job too…
Which is something we must find for these two…
Ooo!

While every parent wants to know their kids are okay and safe,
I think I’m even antsy’er to help them get their own place. lol!
Because Momma can love you – without you being in her face. Hey-ey!
So we’re looking for two jobs – moving at a sprinters pace.

They look a lot like Ellen Degeneres and her wife;
My daughter chose the provider role for her life.

Unfortunately my daughter doesn’t make money like Ellen does,
so they’ve both got to find work – or life will be rough.

This is what I’m telling them – via my dearest motherly love.
Through it all (the more the merrier) I give lots of group hugs.

So I’m seeking to lay two extra place settings at the table in just 12 days,
I’m Qui
Conducting myself like Shakespeare said: “All the world’s a stage”…
Good morning Spencer Tracy! I am duly ready to play!

  1. You Rock HOOK. And you’re right on. What choice do I have? I’m cool with it & phase or not… I’ve got her back. She’s my kid. I love her. …and LIFE is NEW again. LOL! I’m awake. I’m smiling too.

    )))HUGS((( to you.

  2. This is easy for ME to say, but you really have no choice but to open your heart juuuust a little more and embrace this new love of your daughter.
    This could be a phase; A LOT of girls are experimenting these days – blame it on stupid men who treat women like crap – but it could be true love.
    You’ll have to wait it out…
    This should have been Freshly Pressed, by the way!
