  • gypsyeyes

    Happy Birthday Suga Wuga(in my best mommy voice). I hope that it is a great one. My mom was wondering where the eyes came from. Mo'(nickname,cuz u are a friend in my head) If you are reading this, that song was the bizness that I heard last night on the show. Continue to be blessed and continue at being the BEST MOM that I've ever seen in Hollyweird. As Y'all can see I stan from Mo also, big time. Don't nobody say nothing bad about ms.jenkins I mean Monica.

  • LadyTaurus

    Happy birthday Romelo. You are too cute! Monica, I love you, its time to take the industry by storm, I am tired of poor music. Bring R&B back!

  • crzasallgetout

    Happy bday Romelo
    Hello Monica!! Girl I had to drop my chick -fil-A nuggets when I read your comment. I love you!! I play your cds so much that most of the songs are scratched. lol. Question? What made you pick the Silly song? I love it. I love that fact that you stuck with a mellow song. I commented yesterday that you're up there with Whitney in vocals. Be blessed

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    @charbee1 yes we are..curious why u asked. did i say something strange. lol. just kidding and @lady taurus and brownsugar poet... those are great compliments and i humbly say thank you. singing is all i know and every artist at some point falls victim to just keeping up with the time but ive learned i must do both. singing is in my soul and thats why i appreciated missy who also did club bangers for me doind a song like this for me as well

  • ReadTheBlog

    Now we know where the kids get their looks from. Wow - (gran)dad's got some strong genes!

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    sorry about the typo :( was trying to type doing. lol

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    yes @readtheblog my dad has STRONG GENES and he loves it. he bragged all through the hospital after i had both of them. especially when
    he saw theyre eyes were like his.im not a superficial person so i didnt care who they looked like as long as they were healthy. but i often look at my kids especially romelo and miss my dads mom. maude. my dad looks just like her and so do the kids. i wish she could have seen them, i really do

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    Alrighty then... guess that means no autographed copy but that's Ok cause I'm still gonne buy it anyway! Oh love the show and now have my other half hooked on it! I'm not gone even comment on what Polow was sayin when you were talkin about relationships cause I don't wanna get my pressure up!

  • missy

    Does everyone have a maude and bertha in their family.. :lol: my goodness.......

    @Monica-YOu don't think Tiny's sons and your sons....look alike...are you sure your not related to Tiny or T.I

  • crzasallgetout

    Monica I live in Bham and saw you at POB. Dang so many questions and so little time.

  • natrlbeauty08

    Monica has such handsome young boys. Happy B-Day Romelo! I can definitely see his father in this pic!

  • MzTee

    Happy B-Day, lil' Romelo. You're stompin with the big dogs now.

    Monica:

    I really like your reality show and this from a person who doesn't typically like reality shows. I appreciate the fact that yours is drama free. You've invited into your life as a mother, daughter, fiancee, sister, daughter and entertainer and might I say it's just refreshing to see a down-to-earth, spirtually based BLACk woman doing the dang thang.

    BTW -- I love your clothes and hair. You have amazing style and presence.

    I've been rocking with you since you were 15 and wish you nothing but continued success.

  • http://mistariesworld.blogspot.com mistarie

    I think Monica is gone :crying: Dang, if you are still reading, I have been a fan since the beginning. And for the record, and this is no azz kissing, I loved "Everytime The Beat Drop". For REAL!!!!!

    I just love to dance everytime the beat drop.

    That was my jam. So was "All Eyes On Me", the single. With the Michale Jackson beat behind it!!! :yes: :dance:

  • Kimmy

    Happy Birthday Romelo!!!! You are such a lil' cutie pa'tootie...

    Wishing you many many more!!!!

  • MizzLeelee

    Happy Birthday Romelo!!! Have lots of fun!

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    @brownsugarpoet of course i will autograph the cd. i forgot to respond to that @missy no i dont think the boys look alike .nothing beyond the fact that they are all lightskinned. lol. tiny and i arent related but similar mixtures of background so maybe thats it. but one thing for sure e have been friends since i was in gradeschool so maybe we take on similar things from hanging so long. lol. @mz tee thank u for the love. some people find it hard to see that im just growing as a person and have no desire to be in negative people or situations. i did that for a long time and all that brings is heartache. so im living and learning. and still have alot of work to do but i will get there believe that. lol.

  • starr

    Happy birthday Romelo. Gosh both the kids are just so adorable.

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    @mistarie thank u so much... i laugh when i think of that song because i HATED having to dance in that video. but that a part of this life. im much more of a by the piano ballad kind of girl but im gonna give you both this album

  • Ebony

    Monica do you have any potty training tips?

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    @starr, kimmy and mizleelee thank u guys very much.. hes having a ball just playing with his brother a dad today and hes said 1000000 times I TWO...lol

  • missy

    @Monica-It isn't the light skin....but they say when you around someone a lot you start looking alike...I think everyone has a twin(even though I am a twin) in the world..

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    @ebony..the only thing that works is persistence. boys are slower than girls in that area so everyone tells me so if you have both dont look for the same. lol. i make it fun and dont fuss about it..and they cooperate easier. doesnt mean they dont still slip up

  • Ebony

    Thank You Monica!!!! I have a girl named Kennedy she turns 2 on Jan 26!!!

  • ShoYaRight

    Heyyyyyyyyy Monica! thanks so much for communicating with us on here. Both of your kids are adorable. I want to say that I've been a fan since day one...like I'm so serious. I appreciate your music, your dedication and your spirit immensely. I love how you do a lot of your own background vocals. Some songs are so layered that it's amazing it's all you. Second, I give props to you for your style. You are NEVER caught slipping. How is that possible? Your face is always beat, the hair is always done and the garments are always cute. Kudos.

    Can't wait for this album. Are you doing more than ten tracks?

  • whatdoesitmatter

    :happy birthday: Hope today is everything you want it to be, Cutie pie.

  • missy

    @Ebony-Your daughter is an Aquarius....she must be a really good child,seeing as how Aquarius' are really easy to raise.. and nice people,kind and giving...so much great qualities about them... ;) (I am a fellow Aquarius and I am a well rounded person)

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    Thanks Monica and lookin forward to that cd!

  • mirsmommy

    Awww man, I'm all late.

    :happybirthday: Romelo!!!!!! Woohoo, :partytime:

  • ReadTheBlog

    Ebony, I bought my daughter pull ups with cinderella on them and said 'don't pee pee on the lady'. Then we made sure to take her around the clock (every hour). My daughter was fully trained in about a couple weeks.

    This book I was reading says a child has to be emotinally mature as well as physically old enough to tell the difference. Does she go to daycare? Usually, when they are around other kids, they try to hang and do what the other kids do.

    Good Luck!

  • http://twitter.com/monicamylife Monica

    oh my last comment i forgot to put that it was directed to @shoyaright.... sorry i forgot to type that. i appreciate all that you said . i understand that everyone wont love or understand what i do . i just pray that i reach someone especially with the show and they can avoid some of the harsh things that i did.

  • Daisy

    @Mis I am late but I LOVED everytime the beat dropped as well :dance:

    Monica, I've been waiting many, many years to talk to you so your response really touched me. Thanks.

  • SouthernPrincess

    Happy Birthday Romelo!
    Off Topic: Monica I must say that I love your show, thank you for showing how to balance family and work in a positive manner. And I can really appreciate the fact that you show the behinds scenes issues that occur with being a celebrity, people focus so much on the glitz and glam but don't know the story behind the glory.
    Keep up the good work!!

  • brownelovely
