My love.

My beautiful, sweet, wonderful LOVE!

I just got off of the phone with my boo.

My baby, my son, my sugarplum Saidon (Sai).

Saidon Richardson

My 13-year-old son Saidon.

He’s so awesome and so handsome and do you know what my baby SAID?!!

So my son and I usually sit up on the phone caking. He is a great conversationalist and I enjoy talking to him more than any other male in my life. Tonight we were gabbing up a storm as he told me about his friends, his Xmas list and so many other random topics.

He said to me, “I have a feeling I’m going to be wealthy. Not rich, wealthy.”

“I have a feeling it is going to happen sooner than you think,” I encouraged him.

“See. It’s like this,” he said. “I feel like no matter what happens, I can still come out on top. Say for some reason, I don’t make good grades in school and I get all C’s and D’s and God forbid, I have to drop out.”

Huh?

“Yeah, but say I do. I can always just go to Broward Community College and get a license to become a barber. I can save up and open my own shop, then open at least 2 more. THEN, I can start investing that money into bigger projects and that’s how I’ll make my wealth.”

I sat there in shock and I listed to this 13’year-old’s business plan.

“I just have to stay focused and stop being so lazy!” he said more to himself than to me.

I almost fell out.

I know school isn’t the end all be all. In fact, I believe formal education is just a gateway to working for others so it really made me PROUD that my baby had a plan in his head that he came up with all by himself.

I love my baby! I love my boo!

I think he’s going to be alright in life.

I really do.
