She's Expecting!!!

So I'm super duper excited! Let me make it clear I said SHE not ME! I'd be outta my rabbit ass mind to have another kid! Not my daughter either... so hold off on calling me Grandma folks! 

Let me rewind a bit. All throughout Middle School & High School I got the crap teased out of me. This is pre Brangelina & Madonna days before adopting Black kids was this hip....

Well life in School was constant teasing... Black girl with white parents + Slightly Chubby + Talks like a white girl = Constant ridicule! But don't cry for me Argentina.....
I was a tough little one. When little black kids would tease me and say I thought I was white I would reply with "Um excuse me I'm African, full blooded Tutsi... how the hell can I think I'm white?" then I'd usually say something smart ass like "Do you even know where your from?" Then I'd throw on Combat boots or Monkey boots, a red plaid skirt and some fishnets and jump around singing & bustin moves while blasting Billy Idol's Dancing With Myself on my Ghetto Blaster!

Anyways back to the story... so you see I was a bit friendless... and I really didn't care. I did have a few friends though. There were a handful of kids that loved my weirdness and we have remained close until this day. There was one friend though.... my friend Lourdes who I hadn't seen since right after High School. Her and her sis Dahl were the sweetest girls ever! Really beautiful on the inside and out. We lost touch. 

A consistant friend of mine was Kristin. She lived around the corner. She was 2 1/2 years younger and her brother was in my grade. Scott. All the girls loved Scott. He was like a brother to me so I thought it was pretty funny. 

                Scott & Kristin flashback

 What was really funny was when people tried to befriend Kristin and I to get near Scott. Sooo Transparent! The funny thing is... they still do. LOL! So, with Kristin and my age difference (which is a big gap when your little) we didn't hang out much until we got older. Which is probably why our friendship lasted, lol! Besides we had our kids around the same time and they became friends as well!

Kristin is doing really good for herself and lives in Hawaii. 
She's nice enough to tease me daily on FB with pics like this:


                        Scott & Friends

So, back to Lourdes (Dez). 
I got to see her when Kristin visited during the Holidays...

                                     Me & Dez

                          Kristin, Me, & Dez
(there was no wind.. Krisitin tryna one up us with the Model Fan look!)

So how did Dez come back in my life? She Married Scott!! 
And they are Expecting a baby!!! 

  talk about what a gorgeous kid that ones gonna be!

So Kristin and I are having a Battle of the Baby T's. Kinda like Battle of the Bands... but way cuter!!! We have been going back and forth through inbox one upping each other on our little nephews present! I can't tell you hers in case it gets back to Dez... don't wanna ruin the surprise. I will show you mine. Most of my IRL friends only come to my blog when I post something on my Facebook. How do I know this? Because they are forever asking me for the link. Plus they would stop to pour a drink or eat some Nachos before figuring out how to scroll down my side bar to find my archives then figure out how to go through them!

So even though Kristin is in the lead I've done good at finding and buying my Battle of the Baby Tees for Lourdes... Here's what I got so far...

Toddler Hoodie.. (i got one for Tafari too)
