11. lol! I didn't WANT to pull out the grandmama card

because that is a hard card to haul. Believe me, I know all too well about the grandmama card!

But this is part of who we are. Black people know better than anyone that we don't live in a vacuum. EVERYTHING we have (good, bad and in between) is because of some seriously hard fought battles. People got their heads knocked, brains spilled, got their ASSES BEAT. And they got up, went to church and hollered and cried, and somehow found the strength to keep going. I live in PERPETUAL AWE of these people. But their blood flows through us and we have the same spirit.

But that doesn't mean it still doesn't get tiring. You have earned your rest, noire. So you take it. Recharge your batteries for the NEXT battle, because girl, isn't there ALWAYS a "next" battle???

Girl, these little munchkins are doing just fine. Your grandbaby thinks that she's a princess now. She walks around in 2 inch, plastic pink heels (I honestly have NO idea where these damn shoes even came from because this is definitely not the kind of thing I buy for my babies), a tutu and a tiara and says very solemnly, "I'm the pwincess" when someone asks who she's supposed to be. That girl is a mess.
