“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.

This Too Shall Pass

“Look at him, all peaceful. Sleeping like a husband. I HATE him”. Ronnie on one of the many occasions she got up with the babies during the night.

I bragged in Social Psychology that if there was a mistake to be made in life I made it. It’s not braggart, and it isn’t meant to glorify anything I’ve done…it just IS. My resume/experience includes: The pregnant 18 yr old, the 10 month morning sickness, giving birth in a foreign country, the colic, the sleepless nights, crying with the baby whose stomach hurt, the single mother, 1st husband, partied too much, fell in love, married a 2nd time, moved across country for love, had the power, water, heat cut off…bounced checks, was arrested (Twice),  had surgical emergencies with not one, but two babies, went back to school, had a 2nd baby when the first was a senior in high school, suffered from PPD after said baby, was terminated from her job because of PPD, had a 3rd baby at 42, had a baby almost die, became a writer, started a blog, gained fans, made mistakes….earned an Associates Degree….Yep, I’ve done it….so when I tell a Little Sister, “This too shall pass”…I know what I’m talking about….do you?

My newest book project…I’m so excited…..”This Too Shall Pass”  Are you far enough up the road, that you can look back and help a little brother or sister whose struggling? Was there something about your experiences that you could share with the entire world? We are seeking parents of children whom are now older, but had some difficulty as babies….Ages Infant thru 5…. If your story is chosen to be included in the book, you will receive compensation and writers credit. The best part, you don’t have to be an experienced writer…you just had to have had an experience that you overcame….So…

This Too Shall Pass….Can you share your nefarious mess with me? If the book goes NY Times Best Seller (A girl can dream), everyone in the world will know whom you are…..and what you overcame….of course, you can remain anonymous…but I need your name to confirm authorship. So, I need your children and your story for this amazing project that I’m totally excited about. Just be you, I’ll fix your comma’s, sentences, and periods…..lets work together to be the the Light that helps a young parent get through the night. Send me a PM on FB, or DM on Twitter for more information….This Too Shall Pass…..it does….and it will. Be Blessed.
