Over spring break, Tony's cousin (who's more like a niece because she is the age of his niece's) Amy came to visit for a few days. She's in her final semester of college and will graduate in May. She's a precious girl and we had a great time shopping, visiting, and chatting.

One day as we drove to an adorable tea room in a neighboring town, we lost reception of my favorite radio station (KSBJ out of Houston). I said.........Oh, let's just listen to some Toby and I pressed play on one of the CD's in my stereo.

(Toby is Toby Mac- a Christian Hip Hop artist whom I have come to love over the past year as Madison and her friends have danced to many of his songs.)

Toby started to sing and I started to sing along.

Amy stared at me in shock, shook her head, and said...

Not only do you know who Toby Mac is...........you actually know the words to his songs?
I am shocked.

As I was telling this story to Madison the other morning as we drove to school
I laughed and said.............

I think Amy was truly amazed that I knew Toby and all the words to his songs.
But you know me...........
I'm cool like dat.

She looked at me with a mortified look on her face and said ...........

Do NOT ever say that again.


That is so NOT cool.


  1. You two crack me up. I can just imagine the look on Madisons face when you said that....lol

    My boyz would probably tell me the same thing, but if dad said it, it would be okay. Cause dad is "Cool like dat!" lol

  2. lol That sounds like my daughter! lol She's a Toby Mac fan too. His songs just make you want to get up and dance! :o)

  3. LOL! I usually get "Mom, No!"

  4. I am so glad that you have this kind of relationship with Maddie. As I sit here and fill another box to send to Maine and realize all the little things I have never gotten to experience, I get to live through all of you.

  5. Don't forget to stop over and check out the swap for next month...heehee!

  6. Dear Hip Hop drop out--
    Sounds like you need to re-enroll in hip hop class! I love Toby Mac!! i am grandfathered in to "hip like dat!" because I listened to DCTalk as a teenager!!!

    Love ya Girl!

  7. Girl I love me some Toby Mac! We went and saw his concert in Houston, he was awesome!! Tell them they need to remember that he is in his mid 40's, and can still rock it!
