Probation


                When you start a new job you understand how crucial the first 90 days of employment is to your longevity with that company. After having managed a few dental practices in the past, I can definitely attest to the fact that during this time you’re being looked at like a tiny dust particle underneath a microscope. This is a mutual trial period for both you and the employer. As an employer I’m looking at all your attributes to see if you’re going to be an asset to me or a liability. As the employee, you’re scoping things out for yourself as well to see if the company is some place you’d like to thrive.  Relationships are no different.

I can confirm in blood that when you meet a man ladies, you don’t get a chance to see his true colors until after that probationary period. The first 90 days this man has sent a representative on his behalf.   He knows you’re looking closely. He’s opening doors, he’s chewing with his mouth closed, paying for dates, being consistent with phone calls and responding to text in a timely manner. He’s got you thinking you could actually see yourself offering him the position. Sis, don’t do it. The first several months of getting to know someone all you should be doing is eating well and having fun on dates. Don’t get emotionally invested, don’t offer to do anything extra for him. See how hard he’s willing to work for that spot and on the 91st day; watch who he becomes because if he’s been Buddy Love all this time and turns into Sherman Klump….HE’S A SHERMAN BOO, NOT BUDDY AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE HIM.

See, I’m one of those people that get excited when I meet someone new because I constantly have in the back of my head that I’m not bitter and I’m not gonna let every man pay for the last ones mistake. Sadly that doesn’t get me anywhere and the potential relationship is in trouble before it even starts. The one thing I’m learning is even though the position has been open for some time, don’t be in a rush to fill it because you’ll end up hiring someone for the job who isn’t qualified based on a need. This is bad business baby. Wait for that 91st day!

Why Are You Single?

As I'm sitting at work chatting with coworkers about life, I get asked the dreadful question. Breezy, why are you single? I wish I had some profound text book answer for them or hell, five dollars for every time I was asked by people in general. The answer is simple. I just wont settle! Being a single mother dating in 2018 is as complicated as trying to read Mike Tysons lips with your tv muted. Although I’ve struggled with self-image in the past, I’m in a much better place mentally and physically and know my worth. That alone is a powerful weapon. I often look at my friends and family members and think to myself….am I really the only one who doesn’t have a significant other? When will it be my season?
As quickly as those thoughts creep into my head I try to shake them away with positive affirmations. See, I grew up in the church and understand that there’s power of life and death in the tongue. My prayers for my future husband are very detailed and I know deep down, the man that h…

Party of 2

Wow, she’s absolutely gorgeous. Each strand of her naturally curly hair sits perfectly on her head. Her eyes are as dark as a summer night, and her skin smooth as butter. I can’t help but notice the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever laid eyes on; as I’m sitting on the sidelines at my sons football practice. This baby girl was a mini queen in every sense of the word. I noticed how well dressed she was as her mother pushed her gracefully in her turquoise Graco stroller. Following behind the two were big bother and dad I assumed. The perfect little family.
As they all walked by, my heart began to flutter and my eyes became dewy. I begin to think of the future and If I’ll get the chance to become a mother again. My son constantly ask for a bother or sister as if babies are something we can go shopping for at our local neighborhood market. His innocence is one of the things I enjoy most about him though. Let’s break this down a little. I’m in my late twenties with a seven year old, diagno…

Cloudy With A Chance of Broke

This glass of Walmart wine is giving me life right now. Bougie on a budget is my lifestyle. Since all the water shelves are cleared at Walmart, I settled on this sweet little Moscato. Funny how southerners go straight for bread and water when a storm is approaching. When my son and I lived in Colorado and was expected to get snowed in; sadly all I stocked up on were movies and food. It was nice to be snowed in spending time with the most important person in my life for a day or two. Good times. “Three pairs of underwear for myself…three pairs of underwear for Bentley” I mumbled as I folded our undergarments and placed them in our black rolling suitcase. “Mama, the water is too hot” Bentley yells from the shower across the hall. This is only his tenth time interrupting me within the last five minutes. Why do kids wait until you’re doing something important to need you? Like man, could you wait at least 2 minutes while I get my thoughts together and pack our entire life in a suitcase fo…
