Storytime: I Didn’t Have Enough Fingers!

In first grade I didn’t have enough fingers 😂

Hello my loves, it’s storytime with LadyG!

Listen as I spin a yarn about that time I got an empowering math tutorial from Daddy.

I also share more about how, as a mother, my own academic shortcomings and educational research informed my choices regarding my children’s educational paths.

I strongly believe that these influences were of critical importance for my young black son.

A Family Conversation: The Curious Transformation of a Weed into a Flower

“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.


Love is a flower, from that a bud
To spread its sunshine and make us love
Beautiful colors shinin' though
Bless you, brother, God is watching you

Think it over 
Life ain't a four leaf clover
