All I know is that I would’ve had a fit if Erica and fooled around and had Zaya while I was gone!! I missed WOZIE’s birth while taping Sunday Best Finale; and I meant I was missing Zaya’s arrival. So to fix all that I had a talk with Zaya and the good Lord and as you see they both listened. Hahaha!! Hearing my husband say he’s not as happy as he has been in the past doesn’t worry me, but let’s me know I have to make him a priority and remind him that he is my dude!!! Marriage is about putting in work, and Teddy & I are committed to doing that and committed to each other. Part of the work is asking the questions, really listening to the answer, and taking action on the things that are needed and or missing. 

I hated missing the Stellars!!!! I wanted to be there with Tina not just because of the 7 nominations, and ultimately our winning, but because I wanted to see my friends! Being at the Stellars is like family reunion time and catching up with artists that are friends while also letting your hair down. But I was very glad that my “baby daddy” stayed home with me – LOL! I love that guy. Family first!

Watching the conversation with Tina and Teddy is a reminder to check-in with my sweetie; which is something we always do with each other. It’s necessary to ask your spouse “Hey babe are we good; are you happy; how are we doing?” I say it all the time and will keep on saying it, “I don’t ever want to be a public success on stage and TV, but a private failure with my husband and children”. Nope not gonna happen…EVER!
