I grew up a Tomboy. I ran track, was a power forward basketball player, climbed birch trees, collected marble looking rocks, wore bright colored Cross Color baggy jeans (during the TLC era), and was always the peddler on my banana bike; while my older sister, Malaika directed my every turn. I was tough and hanged with my twin brother, Joshua who was as Southerns say, “all-boy.”
I’m convinced that I was destined to have sons. Genetically boys run on my husband’s side of the family, but I think God knew I’d be a great mom to boys. Being married with two boys has already created some memorable moments. Hopefully you too can relate.
