A lot of time has passed and there have been so many things happening in life, hence the months of not posting. I found out in October that my oldest child, Maui, is going to be having a baby in May. When he first told me, I lost my mind. I cried and cried. He’s only 19 and going to be a dad. I felt like all my dreams and all of my hard work raising him and trying to provide the very best for him just went down the drain. It was heartbreaking! I had Maui when I was 18 and know first hand how it is to be a young parent and how much harder you have to work to provide. School was harder because along with school there’s work on top of taking care of a baby who demands so much attention.
It took a while for me to finally see the positive and realize that everything happens for a reason and that a baby is the ultimate blessing that one can receive. Of course I still worry about the road ahead for Maui, but I know that with the support he has, he will be ok. The only thing to do is pray.
We recently found out that ITS A GIRL! I am way too young to be called Grandma so I’ve been thinking of a cute nickname. I’d love any suggestions. Some that I’m considering are… cookie, lovey, kissy and toots.
