I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
So much has been happening that I can't even sum it up. For the last week I was stressing over where to put my son in daycare or preschool. He was going to daycare at the church, but that was only until August 31st. Plust at first the workers there were bullshitting about the daycare. They weren't doing any activities with the kids until one of the parents complained. I tell ya, some black folks are just trifling!!!! Plus they weren't well established yet. I think it was their first time doing a daycare.
So I was stressing over what to do with him afterwards. I wanted him to go back to his preschool, because they have school and a summer program, but I didn't have a way for him to get back and forth. Everyone I fucking know doesn't have a car. And I definitely didn't want to give my uncle my car again to do that, cuz he is so fucking irresponsible!!!!
So I started calling around and I just couldn't afford what they were asking. Plus the state thinks I make too much to get any assistance (which is bullshit). You have to be dirt poor for anyone to help you out nowadays it's ridiculous. I was honestly thinking about getting a second job, but I felt so bad about not spending time with my son. So I thought and thought and thought. Till one day I was talking to my sister and she had talked about her girlfriend Laura. Then it just clicked!!! I was like didn't you tell me that Laura lives not too far from my son's school? And she was like she right on the same block. So I instantly got frantic cuz I wanted to call her. I asked my sis what does she do for a living and she said baby sits!!!!! OMG...she was sitting under my nose all this time, and I didn't even think of her (cuz I saw a her a week earlier).
So the next day I called her and she told me no problem, she didn't mind at all!!!!! Man was I overjoyed. Then I called his preschool to make sure that the director could squeeze him into the summer program and she said that he was already in it. I instantly started doing my happy dance!!! I was so happy that I could shit on myself!!!! I was happy cuz for one I didn't have to pay the preschool what I was paying the daycare, and my son would be back at the place where he knows everyone.
He started yesterday and they needed $20 to register him. I totally didn't have the money. This whole week I've been so poor it wasn't even funny. Laura offered to pay it for me until I got paid later this week!!! She is truly a blessing from God. And she is not like my ex-babysitter. My sister thinks highly of her. So she is gonna be my new BABY SITTER!!!!
So now I just quit going to the daycare church, I go to Laura's (the one where I caught the "holy ghost"), but I still want to visit one more church before I make up my mind where I wanna be. And now I don't have to worry about my son's schoolng for a whole year cuz Laura will do it for me. She might move back over to my side of Joliet but she told me she woudl still do it (cuz she fucking has a car!!!). WHAT A SAINT SHE IS!!!
