Just whenever I thought the day couldn’t get any worse my son’s girlfriend had to fill him in on the bad news that the romantic night they’d had plans for spanning over a weeks time had been canceled last minute by the party at who’s house they were gonna be chilling at. Now that was way earlier this morning at around 11-am possibly lunchtime about 12-pm. My momma was already on her way over to spend the day with me and I thought, great! Soon after hearing such bad news he pulled the blanket over his head. I was like, “You ain’t going to sleep are you? Really? Nana is bout to be here.” He adamantly swore to me he was just laying down watching YouTube.
Okay cool.Is what I was thinking. But turns out those cancelled plans affected him more so than he’d ever let me in on. It wasn’t until after my momma had left that he got extremely irritated. So much so that he punched the mattress on my bed, when I told hi in only a tone a mother has, to go outside and calm the fuck down. The last thing he wanted was to stir momma’s hornets nest up. Let me just say that letting him have quiet time helped tremendously for him. Not 5 minutes later he apologized to me.
Respect given 100%. Not just by him for saying sorry. But from me to letting him know I understood, and that everything was gonna be okay. That he would be okay. He talked some shit about never getting his hopes up again. I had a sad but true reality to tell him about. I said, “Son, you never get your hopes up over anything. Nothing is ever set in stone. Hope for the best, expect the worst.”
I know some of you guys might disagree with that tid-bit of advice. As far as it goes for me it’s the absolute truth! Like it or not.
Anyways. . .
As I cough the smoke from my lungs. . .
This day may have been aggravating as hell. But it ended up being a wonderful night sitting at home with my son chilling, while he’s snapping his girl in between their face time calls.
Well that and I had Lukah over for a few hours tonight while his momma went and did their laundry. His Uncle Nikki was playing with him by holding him by his thighs while Lukah maintained his balance and lifted him towards the ceiling while sitting on the bed. Well after like 12 or so lifts (Lukah’s chunky as all get out. But the cutest chunkiest terd you ever did see) and as Uncle Nikki was bringing him back down they bumped heads. Well, Lukah reached downwards and ended up bumping heads with his Uncle Nikki. That sent him onto having a crying spell. In turn that caused Uncle Nikki to become upset. I was trying to soothe both baby boys at the same time. Cutest thing ever.
Well, I’m finished for the night, love all you guys.
