And so it continues… PART 2 – LABOR & DELIVERY The Birth of Prissy 2.0 During my final prenatal appointment Dr. Cutler told me we needed to prepare for labor options.

Against the advice of everyone, I called the Nigerian. It felt so good to hear his voice. Oh, boy! Up to this point I had kept my promise and refrained from contacting him. But I couldn’t help but do it. I tried, Lord, I tried. Our conversation was brief. His tone when he answered, familiar and friendly. There were people in the background. That means…

He stopped within minutes of the start of #Whitney so I could live tweet. All is fair in love…

Because she, in fact, can do whatever she wants to do and people will care. And when I say whatever I mean Beyoncé gets to to do things like: sing about feminism while…

I could snap my fingers, roll my eyes, carry a tune, and pose for the camera with precision and poise. By the age of four, I was even savvy enough to “read” the newspaper. Granted, I had no idea…
