Dude. Check out this black boy bling!

We mentioned earlier how attached Chance is to Cal and how he’s becoming a smaller version of him. It’s the same with Travon and Keon. Tra walks like Keon, talks like him and laughs like him. Keon always wears a gold neck chain with a cross pendant. So, of course, Tra wears a gold neck chain with a cross pendant. We tease them – calling it “black boy bling.” It’s fascinating to watch the kids’ personalities develop.
I asked Ben who he thought Dub would emulate. He just chuckled and said “No way Dub’s gonna be like anyone else. He’ll always be his own unique Dub-self.” I’m sure he’s right about that 🙂


After having taken a few days off from Jeopardy while Bill Whitaker finished up his guest-hosting, we’re excited about the Tournament of Champions and Buzzy Cohen starting Monday. After Katie Couric, “Dr.” Oz, and Bill Whitaker, we feel we’ve earned it!

Check it out, dude. Men in Black!

Since we’re doing a new series of “Colors” posts, we thought we’d broaden our horizons a bit. Before last Saturday, we’d never done a “White” post and interestingly, I find we’ve never done a “Black” one either. So, today, “Black” it is. I’m not sure why… but this is one of my favorite “Colors” posts ever. Hope you guys like it as much as I do 🙂

It’s a “Friends Friday” look at some black boy boxer bulges!

Hey, guys. It’s Rick. This wasn’t a planned post… it just sort of happened… but its ended up being one of my fav posts ever. The deal is, when we’re home, Keon lives in a baggy tee shirt, boxer briefs and flip flops. Travon loves us both, but he absolutely worships Keon. He mimics everything Keon does. I swear, he’s beginning to talk like Keon… walk like Keon and even smile like Keon. So, of course we got him some baggy tee shirts and boxer briefs and flip flops to wear around the house.
David and Ben say they think Travon sort of won the life lottery when we adopted him. He’s in an environment filled with love (plus Max and Muff) and I’m sure no boy ever had a better role model than my husband!
