This mompreneur has quite a bit on her plate between building websites, blogging over at sistasense, maintaining Black Business Women Online plus hosting my upcoming event for women entrepreneurs and mompreneurs (between all that) I do sometimes find it hard to keep up my duties for the Black Parenting Blog, BUT the good news for you and I both is there are a growing number of wonderful black parenting focused websites for us to enjoy.

I was going through the linen closet this morning and stumbled upon Christopher's 1st pair of shoes. Dad was never one for booties, so of course he had little man polos (didn't even know they made sneakers that tiny - lol). Goodness they grow so fast and yet as I look at all my fellow Facebook moms sending their kids off to prom and graduation, I am in awe because I know thank GOD we still have quite a few more years for him to be my little boy! (SMILE)
Beyond telling you I love the look of these new watches, I'm not so great with all the specifics (lol), so I thought I would share a few details from the website:
Swiss watch and jewellery maker Swatch unveils two new watches in its signature collection of Swiss made precision Irony chronographs. The Chrono Collection presents a pair of Irony Chronos featuring the popular model's classic good looks and timeless style.
Polished stainless steel gives the polished 40mm case, brushed bezel and brushed bracelet a distinguished and self-assured look and feel, while sun-brushed black or red dials present a fashion-wise contrast, with the tone-on-tone counters adding just the right touch of cool, understated elegance to the design. Smart, poised and stylish-the Chrono Collection says it all.
For my fellow moms out there trying to stay in style, do take a look at this new collection and let me know what you think.
Shop Swatch Red Circle - $175.00 or Fuchsia Circle - $175.0
I felt compelled to stop and share this today as I heard about this on the Tom Joyner show this morning. My heart hurts for this boy and his family. I can't stop crying I guess because it hits home for me on so many different levels. Where is the justice? Where is the peace?
According to the Huffington Post:
Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, was shot and killed in a gated community in Florida late last month by a white neighborhood watch captain, according to police. But the watch captain, George Zimmerman — a 26-year-old college student who has admitted to police that he shot the young man — still walks free. And Martin's family is pleading for answers and demanding justice. (full article)
According to the TMJ show the precinct where all this took place has refused to release the 911 tapes on which there is information as to why Zimmerman did not listen to the request not to take action and why he felt compelled to confront Trayvon. This same precinct both lied and justified why they let Zimmerman go claiming it was self defense, he had a 'squeaky clean record', he was a college student. And then we later find out that Zimmerman has a previous police record. Why did they not arrest him? Why did they lie for him? Why does it take the most extraordinary circumstances for us to get the simplest of justice.
Pray for this family and pray for our deliverance from racial injustice.
