Me, an Oscar, Gov. Mike Huckabee & Breastfeeding. Go figure!

Last week, I had the pleasure of appearing on The Huckabee Show to discuss breastfeeding, more specifically, the recent brouhaha over Gisele Bundchen's comments that breastfeeding should be a "law."

“Priorities” Essay in Souls of My Young Sisters Has Me Thinking…

  When she called and told me the title of her essay, I was immediately intrigued. "Priorities," she said.  That's something that I have struggled with for years.

Enough With The Drunken White Mom Thing!! I’m Fed Up With the Double Standards

This one has REALLY been bothering me for some time. And I was so upset, I decided to give my put-on-blast commentary to Momlogic.com (you know how that audience tears into me) where I am currently having my black behind handed to me. But I just needed to say it and I wanted to say [...]
