Homeless: Not the Face You Imagine

Homelessness is REAL. And, the homeless are not the face you imagine. In the ’90s, when I had my oldest son at 22 ½, I was making $35,000 a year. I had minimal debt, other than my living expenses: rent, utilities, transportation, food/necessities, and my beeper – Yes, it was a necessity. However, I did not […]

Sons Should Come With A Disclaimer

“You’re my Wonder Mom.” My tween proclaimed those words this past week. His back had been badly hurt playing Dodge-ball in school and he could not walk. As I lifted him up, I winched but did not let him see. He is no longer a baby. He weighs more then 105 lbs. Yet, last week […]

Tween Cosmetic Dentistry: Before and After Photos

Earlier this week my Tween was racing to catch the train. It was raining. He was running. It was slippery. He fell. HARD. I thought he was kidding when he originally sent me the text message.   He wasn’t. The picture proved it.   Thankfully, we were able to get an appointment with the same Dentist that is […]

A Garden in Times Square

This past week, my Mom, Ms. Latina, gave me the chance to head to Times Squares’ very own Olive Garden with two of my closest friends: Jose and Joyee. After watching a movie and sharing tons of laughter, indulging in “a taste of Italy” was great. The atmosphere of the restaurant was homey, a hard feat to achieve in […]

Honestly, after my first training session with my Lucille Roberts’ Trainer, I didn’t think I would make it. I was bright red, gasping for […]
