Yatah06: I have watch yrs 90 and 95 too watch which rite date

because Josephine on list said 95 another said 90

Selma : I bet 90 is right..women tend to lie about their age when they get older.. LOL

Vicky : just keep both dates in mind yatah06.. There is a tendency to have several dates when you do your research

 

Vicky : lol lol @ Selma.. Not if you are a Cougar lol

 

ALT : yatah06..... that's why if you aren't sure of the exact date you should use the "ca" which means about and covers the span of few years.

Yatah06: ok

Khathu : I discovered I am not ready for children yet

3rdTHawkins : I'm still trying to master the art of not fainting or vomiting while a woman gives birth

Seventies Soulchild : Why do men take so long to decide that they want children?? Don't they realize that their genetic material gets old too...??? lol

Ingrid_Doweary : lol lol lol

Seventies Soulchild : LOL Do you really think so??

Vicky : that’s for STG

 

Khathu : I couldn't not doing anything

 

3rdTHawkins : Seventies Soulchild I want children of my own, I don't want to adopt, I want my own natural children, I never had a father, so I would like to know how it is being a dad

 

Ingrid_Doweary : WOW! You are do post the findings so well!

 

3rdTHawkins : Khathu, I wouldn't want to miss the joy of watching a child growing from infantry into a man/woman, I would like to know how that is

STG : SC right?

Yatah06: yes

 

STG : ok dokey

 

Seventies Soulchild : That's great 3rdTHawkins...

 

Vicky : see above STG

 

STG : got Vicky oops got it

3rdTHawkins : but I think it's natural for men to want to wait til the child is past infantry and potty training, that's the woman's thing to do, the man waits until the child is of a certain age to teach them about life

STG : oooo ate too many cookie

Seventies Soulchild : 3rdTHawkins, don't be one of those old overbearing parents... lol

 

[Action] STG : looks at 3rd

 

3rdTHawkins : lol.....I might

Seventies Soulchild : lol STG

Yatah06: oh one son last one sound alike

Khathu : I realized I don't have the patience

 

3rdTHawkins : I think there are roles in the family, but I see nothing wrong with nuturing a child as a man from infantry and I don't right now Khathu, but I believe I will learn to

STG : that's good 3rd. I personally would like for man to have them

 

Vicky : lol lol lol

 

3rdTHawkins : well, obviously that won't happen, so get use to the role

Khathu : I refused to hold infant until they are at least 3-4 months old

3rdTHawkins : you may change that once you have a child Khathu

 

Khathu : I don't have a problem problem adopting

[Action] STG : doesn't have to get use to the role LOL

Seventies Soulchild : LOL Khathu

 

Ingrid_Doweary : I started preparing before my daughters were born.

 

Seventies Soulchild : You dudes are a trip lol

 

Vicky : khathu my brother raised his son by himself. He was picked as the Father of the year in Corona Calif

3rdTHawkins : that's Khathu SS, I don't mean to take it so seriously or personal, but I don't understand how a man don't want to care for his own children.....but you are willing to take care of someone else's?

 

Seventies Soulchild : I applaud your bro Vicky!

 

Vicky : yep, me too Seventies

 

Khathu : I have raised my oldest nephew and my adopted son

 

Ingrid_Doweary : Kudos to your bro, Vicky. :)

Seventies Soulchild : I don't either 3rdTHawkins. But some men just don't know how to deal with the responsibility

Khathu : as a single parent

Vicky : awesome Khathu

3rdTHawkins : yeah, that's it

Seventies Soulchild : wow khathu

Ingrid_Doweary : Congrats to all of you parents-guardians

3rdTHawkins : that's cool Khathu at least you were a male role model for someone who DIDN'T have it....very good for you

Khathu : I did what I had to do at the time

Vicky : male role models were hard to find in lots of towns

 

3rdTHawkins : that's cool, at least you did it, my dad wouldn't waste his time thinking about taking care of anyone but himself

 

Vicky : sometimes not from their own doings

 

STG : ok Yatah I sent it to you

 

Khathu : so true you all have a fantastic weekend

 

Yatah06: thanks I print it get dig up more

 

Vicky : a know of a young lady that never knew her dad had been sending letters and gifts for years and the mother never let her know

 

Seventies Soulchild : That is cold Vicky... wow!

 

3rdTHawkins : I wish I could let you "real" women loose on my dad, he needs somebody to set him straight, you guys would not like the way he is

 

Seventies Soulchild : lol I've got 2 conversations going on here....

 

Yatah06: it clear thanks stg

 

Vicky : too many people hold grudges and never think of the turmoil it plays on the kids

 

STG : good yatah

 

Seventies Soulchild : exactly Vicky

 

STG : he is who he is 3rd. I doubt there's any "setting him straight"

 

Seventies Soulchild : Its because of the animosity, in that particular incidence, of the mom

 

Vicky : have you talked to your dad

 

STG : Don't waste precious energy

 

3rdTHawkins : Exactly! STG, thank you, that's what I told my sister

But I didn't mean literally, I'm just trying to make a point, I'm not worrying about him getting his life together, don't get me wrong, I was just say....:)

 

Vicky : your sister does not feel the way you do 3rd?

 

STG : I know women whose children's father can easily do for someone else's kids but not their own. Looking from the outside it seems like I will if "we're" together but not if we aren't

 

Vicky : true STG

 

STG : but then want to get mad if she moves on with her life

 

3rdTHawkins : she met him Vicky, she and my brother are the ones telling me how dad is, they are disgusted at him, but we were talking and I was trying to explain how I saw it, I had to make her see it, but she does feel about him like I do, don't get me wrong

 

Vicky : then when they get old and wrinkled as chitlins they want to be in their lives

 

STG : yea that's what I told them Vicky. ok maybe not the chitlins part LOL LOL LOL

 

Yatah06: thanks much mi better go now I pick kids

 

STG : later yatah

 

Seventies Soulchild : Yea Vicky when they can't take of themselves and need their offspring to take care of them.... just triflin'

 

3rdTHawkins : my dad rather a woman take care of him instead of him taking care of her, the children, and the house and himself

 

STG : he's not alone 3rd

 

Seventies Soulchild : 3rdTHawkins, ooohh black men like that get on my last nerve! I cannot stand that type of man

 

Vicky : blame that woman who lets him do that

 

3rdTHawkins : his current wife divorced him

 

Seventies Soulchild : I have no respect for a male like that at all

 

STG : heck I can't take care of me let alone somebody else LOL LOL LOL

 

3rdTHawkins : that's what's concerning to me Seventies Soulchild, because he was raised to see himself as a white man, but he wants to live his life as a black man, and this is how he chooses to live AS A BLACK MAN

 

Seventies Soulchild : the young girl in my office has a boyfriend who does the exact same thing. & I don't feel sorry for her at all. :) yes I'm rolling my eyes on that 3rd. . .

 

STG : 8S do that one SS lol

 

3rdTHawkins : But I believe he would still live his life like that, even if he saw himself and lived his life as a white man

 

Seventies Soulchild : I'm doing the eyeroll, and tooth suck, STG lol

 

STG : lol hand on hip

 

Seventies Soulchild : Oh yea that too... lol That's one of the first things a sista learns... lol lol lol

 

STG : again he is who he is

 

3rdTHawkins : his current [ex] wife had breast cancer, and her daughter believes it's due to him repeatedly hitting her in the chest she had to have her breast removed

 

Vicky : pray she stays in remission

 

Seventies Soulchild : It sounds like your biological dad has really made you mad 3rdTHawkins

 

3rdTHawkins : as I do my research, five years after the divorce, he's still hanging around teh house, there's a court document of him being taking to court for domestic violence by his step daughter

 

Seventies Soulchild : Again :) 8S :{

 

3rdTHawkins : it's frustrating Seventies Soulchild, just upsetting I feel bad for her mother because dad just messed up her life, basically, I feel bad for her

Seventies Soulchild : Well that's on her, the ex wife, she's a grown woman and can completely decide what she will and won't deal with. Apparently she's going to deal with this... and seems to be fine with it.

 

3rdTHawkins : yeah, I disagree SS, but I know about my dad, he's manipulative, my sister described him as a "Professional" Womanizer to me, he's too charming, too good looking, light skinned, and too believable and too irresistable to some females

 

Vicky : I think what seventies is trying to say is that you are only weak for what you want to be weak for. light skinned has nothing to do with it

3rdTHawkins : for them to not believe him and just leave him, but after being around you, I think you get tired of him enough, I know my mother and my brother and sister's mother did

 

Vicky : mabe charming and a little belief in herself

Seventies Soulchild : For some women it does. . .

3rdTHawkins : Vicky I believe it is, especially in D.C., my sister knows it well

Ingrid_Doweary : Try that, bottom line if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. True that, I meant.

Vicky : people have to have confidence in themselves 3rd thats the sighn of a real woman or man

Seventies Soulchild : I plead the 5th... lol because if we start going into all of that. . . boy will it be some fireworks going

 

3rdTHawkins : and my step mother was described to me as "sweet", so I'm I can understand how she would take him back or allow him to stay around.....my dad only messes with/talks to certain women

 

Vicky : exactly what I am saying 3rd..certian women

 

3rdTHawkins : women he could manipulate and cheat on and won't expect a thing......

Ingrid_Doweary : Personal attributes in particular?

Vicky : low self esteem!!

Seventies Soulchild : Some women are just too sweet, I gave that up a long time ago for cool. lol

 

3rdTHawkins : that has to be it Vicky, especially for a man raised up to be white and trying to live in a black world. He's light skinned, he has to battle trying to "fit in" the black world

Vicky : bull! He is not the only one that looks like that

STG : pshaw

 

Ingrid_Doweary : Someone in this group mentioned Kenyatta Berry's article this week. I started reading it in the Family Tree Magazine

 

STG : I did Ingrid

Seventies Soulchild : 3rd how did that happen? Your dad being raised to be white?? Sounds like some double consciousness going on with him. Which is madness.

 

STG : I read "at it"

 

Vicky : what article was that..Is it online Ingrid_Doweary

 

Seventies Soulchild : In situtations like that, I squarely blame the schizophrenic culture called American. Sad to say, but true.

 

3rdTHawkins : well, that's my personal assesment, for the most part, I don't think how he was raised or was attempted to be raised has anything to do with how he is, he didn't care about what his parents were saying

 

Ingrid_Doweary : African American roots obscured by slavery, STG? Vicky, I got my printed magazine the day that chat.

 

3rdTHawkins : so, yeah, you guys are right, that's Bull :)

Vicky : do you have a link

Seventies Soulchild : Please post, Ingrid, I would like to read that story.article...

STG : somebody needs to clean off my desk!

Vicky : never mind, I will do a google

Seventies Soulchild : lol
