I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Well my weekend was kinda boring. I went to my sis's house and we ordered take out and she bought the movie "Waist Deep" with fine ass Tyrese. That was a good movie. I did my laundry and left about 11:30 that nite. Got up the next morning and went to choir rehearsal and we practiced me singing the lead. It was a nice song and I did pretty good at church on Sunday.
I just wish I could've got some rest this weekend cuz now that I'm off my steriod pills and I'm not jittery anymore, I found out just how exhuasted I really am. When I was on the steriod pills I was so alert that once I got up in the middle of the nite to tinkle, it was impossible to go back to sleep. And I was waking up at 3 in the morning!!!! And trying to get a nap here and there is impossible when you live with my son. Everytime I hit the couch, he comes up to me waking me up for something he wanted. UGGGGGGGHHHH. He would literally get in my face and open my eyes sometime. Lil stinker.
So today I am at work and one of the girls told me that her son got a tattoo behind her back. He's only 16 y/o and I asked her how'd he do that. She said that he told her that he found a license of an 18 y/o that looked just like him. I don't buy that part. So then when she told her best friend at work, she told her she already knew. WTF???!!! You already knew and you didn't tell me? I told her if that was me and her, I'd curse her out simply because he is a child and you knew that I am against something like that.
So then I bring the question to my girlfriend. I emailed her and asked her what did she think if it was her and I. She said she wouldn't be mad at me, she'd be mad at her kid. Well I told her that I think I'd be pissed at you and express to you that I was upset that you put your feelings aside for a 16 y/o and not take into consideration that he is a child. But then she totally went out there to say well where was the mother at when he was doing it. I was like as a parent, you can't be there to watch EVERYTHING your child does. And she disagreed. She said her mother knew her every step. So I was like it's impossible. My mother thought that she knew me and my sis's every step but she didn't. If she did, she could've prevented my sis from getting pregnant at 16 and having a baby at 17. She still disagreed with me. So we kept going back and forth and I told her she was entitled to her opinions, but I think she got snippy with me cuz I didn't agree with her. OH WELL.
I know that as a teenager, I was a pretty good kid, but I also did some devious shit that she never knew until I got old enough and on my own to tell her. On Friday nites, my mom played bingo. After school, me and my sis would go into her closet, pick out some of her hoochie dresses and ride our bikes to the liquor store. Nobody never question us cuz at that age we were well developed and looked grown. Well we'd get the liquor, come back to the house with boys and just kick it. She never knew about it.
So like I said, you can't watch your kid's every move, it's just impossible. I say that all you do is hope that you raised them right that they'd do the right thing. So my readers, what do you guys think? I know alot of you are parents and was hoping to get your feed back.
