The Jennifer Lewis of Mothers

Me: Cats are people spirits trapped in animal bodies.
The Kid: *Brow raise*
Me: Really. Yesterday I watched a cat bothering a bird in the tree in the backyard. I tapped the window ONCE, it looked straight at me. I pointed for it to leave and it did. It looked disgusted with me but it left.
The Kid: Ok

—-Later watching black-ish—-
The Kid: I would love it if Jennifer Lewis was my mom.
Me: She’s bipolar.
The Kid: *Just blinks at me with a carefully blank expression*
Me: *Aghast* Are you KIDDING ME?
The Kid: I didn’t SAY anything.
Me: *Pointing at the door* Even the cat knew what this meant.

Conversations with the Kid 3:: Water & Race


Me: Why do you have that dirty bucket in my kitchen sink?
The Kid: I’ve been challenged.
Me: To what, a dirty bucket duel?
The Kid: No mom, the ALS Challenge.
Me: Put that bucket back in the garage.
The Kid: But why? I have to do the ice water challenge.
Me: You will not do a monkey see, monkey do challenge. You want to donate that’s one thing but you will not do that challenge. Why don’t you create a ‘stop shooting at my black skin, challenge’ and share that with your friends?
The Kid: *Mumbling & Grumbling*
Me: What’s that?
Me: What’s that?
The Kid: Nothing.
::3 Hours later::
The Kid: Mommie, I wrote a rap.
::It was a rap about the very same thing we had just discussed. Kids listen and they mimic your values. ::

Conversations With The Kid 2:: Hello Kitty

I just found out Hello Kitty is not a cat.

It is very disturbing.

Folks know I love this cartoon.

Turns out she’s a girl and not a cat. A girl. With Whiskers and cat ears.


I was traumatized all over Instagram and Facebook. So I shared it with The Kid.

Below is her reaction.
