4 years old!

Morning Pooka Family!!!  Hope this post finds you in good health and spirit!  In exactly 17 days my baby will be 4 yrs old!!!!  Can you believe it?!  That little girl who was in my belly for nine months, in diapers for 2 ½ yrs, and in my bed for 3 yrs (well she’s still in my bed) LOL!  I can’t believe how time has gone by so quickly.  Next year she’ll be in kindergarten!!!  I can’t take it!!!  In honor of her birthday I just want to share some Taiye-isms we’ve enjoyed over her first 3 years and some pix:
  • Mommy, I’m being a genius right now (when I asked her what she was doing in my office)
  • Mommy, Can I talk to you (in the car after school when one of her friends was mean to her)
  • Mommy, I’m having a conversation (when I interrupted her while talking to Auntie Dawn)
  • Mommy, This is a little challenging (while she and a playdate were putting together a Dora puzzle)
  • Me:  Taiye do you know where babies come from?  Do you know where you came from? Taiye:  Newark, New Jersey
  • Me:  (while she is playing with my boobie in the bed watching DocMcStuffins) Taiye, you’re going to be 4 yrs old soon.  You have to stop playing with Mommy’s boobie.  Taiye: Mommy, I’m not 4 today; when I turn 4; I’ll stop.
  • Me:  (after her first child only swim lesson) Taiye, you were really great in the swimming pool!  You weren’t scared?  Taiye:  No, Mommy, I’m brave!

  1. I just read the "Socialology" article in the March 2012 edition of Black Enterprise Magazine. I was especially proud of reading this because I am an educator in the Orange Public Schools District.

    My name is Anthony St. Jean, Technology Coordinator for Heywood Avenue School in Orange, NJ. The girls and parents in our school would love to hear your story.

    If possible, can you contact me to see if it is possible that you can speak to them and parents. I can only imagine how inspiring, your story can be to the young girls (and possibly boys) and parents.

    Please contact me.

    I hope and pray for the continued success of Pooka Pure & Simple.

    Best regards,
    Anthony St. Jean
