616 Duke Street

616 Duke Street
We moved around a lot when I was a kid, enough for me to attend five elementary schools between 1st and 8th grade. Of all the places I’ve lived, 616 S. Duke Street appears to be the one that sticks out the most. That one address I remember just as clear as day, probably more... Read more »

Why Curious George may be a bad influence on my child.. and yours too!

Why Curious George may be a bad influence on my child.. and yours too!
A few months ago, Go-2-baby was Caillou’s biggest fan, something I learned that many other parents disagreed with. After searching the web, I realized that Caillou was/is America’s most hated Cartoon (and he isn’t even American,) go figure. I didn’t mind Caillou, he was a little whiny. stubborn brat, but I know worse kids in... Read more »

5 things I'm learning about the "Terrible Twos"
For as long as I can remember, I’ve heard people going on and on about terrible twos, from sharing their own horror stories to telling me how terrible I, or someone else was at that age.

So, this is my third holiday as a parent and of course it’s getting easier with time. This year, I did the unthinkable and suggested that one of my family members not buy a specific type of gift for my child. Here’s another one of those things I said I’d never do. Ya’ll are probably... Read more »

Science is more fun when you grow up...

Science is more fun when  you grow up...
When I was a kid, I can recall science being one of my least favorite subjects, well besides being in the science fair–mainly to get out of class for a day– making homemade ice cream and melting styrofoam cups, science wasn’t on the top of my list of favorites. In high school, I was so... Read more »

I just so happened to stop by the Twitter profile of Black and Married with Kids, one of the leading Black parenting and relationship websites around. While I was there, I saw that they were observing Blended Families week, which of course celebrates the many blended families that come together nicely. I even saw a... Read more »
