The Preacher’s Daughters on child rearing

The other day as my sister and I were driving to town we saw a very small child run out into the road.  The child was probably less than two years old.  On the side of the road was a car, two men working on the car, and a woman sitting down next to the car.  This car just so happened to be parked in the driveway of the alleged local crack house.

As we sat stopped in the middle of the road to avoid hitting the wandering toddler, the “mother” looked up and saw us and then the child in the road.  She quickly jumped up and went and grabbed the child by the arm and began to spank him.  I use the term spank rather loosely because what she did bordered on beating.

How can you justify spanking/beating a toddler for running out in the middle of a busy road?  The “mother” is the one who should have been beaten!  If she had paid attention to what her child was doing instead of sitting on the curb drinking a cold one, smoking and talking to her buddies, the poor kid wouldn’t have made it into the road to begin with.

My sister and I sat in the car and watched, horrified and angered by what we were witnessing.  We both yelled “why the hell is she beating the poor kid?”  The “mother” did look over at us again and saw the look of disgust and anger on our faces.  She pulled the child back over to the curb with her and sat back down.

My sister and I aren’t the types who easily go into any kind of rage, but we were both ready to Continue reading

the other side of sanity

I’m sitting here watching the video below of Glozell with her mother while they are watching Katy Perry’s video for E T.  I have to say it’s quite amazing and also a tad trippy if you know what I mean.  Wink, wink.  Enjoy.

Happy humping!

Happy Mother’s Day from the Preacher’s Daughter

Hello, I’m the Preacher’s Daughter.  I’m also web mistress, blogger, writer, Southern Belle, natural redhead, daughter, big sister, aunt and the list goes on and on.  One thing I will never be is a mother.  I have something called POF (premature ovarian failure).  That means that the probability of my conceiving a child is about .02 in a million.  So if you are a mother, consider yourself blessed and take very good care of your little ones.  You’re lucky to have them.

My mother has always been an inspiration to me, even though I don’t think I’ve ever told her.  I do love and admire her very much.  She has been the dutiful pastor’s wife for about 25 years now and I believe she has enjoyed every minute of it through good times and bad.

She is a loving & caring mother, wife, musician, singer, minister, teacher & leader.  She has an adopted five year-old boy to take care of, the Preacher to deal with daily, one daughter with a one year-old son that she’s always happy to babysit, and her first-born (me) that she has to pray for constantly.  It makes me dizzy just thinking of all that she does to help care for her family and friends.

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful mother, and wonderful grandmothers, aunts, friends and a little sister.  The women in my life have taught me so much and I pray that I am able to inspire someone as they have inspired me.

In these hectic times of instant grits and instant coffee, we all need to remember those mornings sitting in the kitchen with our mothers, grandmothers, sisters and aunts sharing a real breakfast and a cup of fresh coffee.  Those are the times when we were able to hear of stories past and share our hopes for the future.

Enough of that mushy stuff.  Have a great mother’s day, and don’t forget to thank mom for not using a condom that one time.

Happy humping!
