“If I hadn’t been married to your Daddy, then we could not have made you and you are the most fantastic thing in the world, what would I do without you?”
“You have to know that your Daddy has some problems he needs to work out right now and when he comes back I am sure he will want to see you first thing”.
” Your Daddy and I made you together, so you have a part of both of us in you. You are part Daddy and part Mommy and you will always have us with you that way”
“I know that where your Daddy is right now he is at some time thinking about how much he loves you.”
“No matter what happens with Daddy, your Mommy is going to be here everyday”.
“I’ll always be here with you for as long as you need me, until you grow up and move away (tears from her), don’t worry you can stay here with me as long as you need me. We’ll be two old ladies living with fifty cats. You’ll be 83 like your grandpa and mommy will be, ummm 113 and we’ll be two cranky old ladies and i’ll be chasing you with my cane saying, “Ems, pick up your socks I don’t want to see your wrinkly old feet”.
Love and laughter instead of me saying what I really want to say which is:
“I’m sorry your piece of crap father can’t seem to place you above his drug addiction that continues to land him in jail for unexplained periods of time. He used to be a really good father.”
