Happy Birthday Princess

“Um, I’m pregnant”. Ronnie to her mother…..27 years, and 10 months ago….My mother was 40…

 

I was 18, a recent graduate from High School, had a good job at BK, and in one night of “I don’t know what” my life changed forever, and as if to solidify the lesson, the baby made me sick for 10 months. Oh, and for 10 months, she was a Christopher Phillip….Sheesh….Yes, you read that right…Germany doesn’t induce….I was pregnant 10 months to the day…vomiting….daily. On September 3 1989, Sanchez brings me a plate loaded with spicy chicken wings, “Here….this will make you have that baby”….on September 4, 1989…Labor Day (God is funny) I went into labor….had an emergency c-section….and brought into this world a 10lbs…healthy baby girl….my Princess….we’ve been through much together….Happy Birthday Princess….Mommy loves you.

She’s 27 today….I feel like out of the entire graduating class of 1988, I have the oldest baby….I might……yet…..I’m not a grandmother. LOL, I can wait. It’s all good. Princess was an only child for 17 years…then when Sweetness came along, she was graduating senior herself, having a baby when your baby is 17 is the best birth control EVER. Seriously, she graciously and willingly shared the parental spotlight with him….he adores her…she adores them….She’s smart, funny, intelligent, articulate, with an attitude every bit like her mother. I pray for her constantly….I actually have a lot of fun when I’m with her…..even arguing….she’s a lot of fun.

So, I’m sending out Mommy love shouts to my baby girl Princess, whom is every bit the American royalty I brought her up to be….It’s not arrogant….she’s earned that right. There’s a difference between being given everything, and being able to keep it! I advised her to, “Call life on it’s bluff…everyday” but then again, I’m older and wiser….she’ll get there….because she’s tenacious…..Okay, one final thought, Princess….call your mom, and come home more often…I mean….COME ON….”How busy can you be baby girl”? Gotta go, Happy Birthday Princess…I love you, adore you, cherish you…Have an amazing day in Chicago….I’ll call you later….Be Blessed.
