When a Man Loves a Woman

~Percy Sledge

Listening to some oldies, now.

I just can’t with that little baby girl! She turns 3 months old, on Feb 25th. She’s already teething! She has been holding her head up from the day she was born. She reminds me of my daughter. She did everything early, too. She was saying “mama, dada”, “baba”(bottle), “caca” (cracker), and “hi” by 5 months old. She walked at 9 months, ran by 10 months.

A few years ago, we really considered another baby. I’d spent a couple years, before that, not so subtly hinting that I wanted another. Then, one night, Adam said to me, “If you really want to, let’s do it”. That’s when I walked that idea back. I hope I made the right choice. I think I did. I love being a mama, but I’m also enjoying this season of our lives. The kids are pretty self sufficient. We can play card games. They help with the chores. It’s been months since we’ve had our daughter climb into bed with us. She occasionally has a bad dream, gets sick, or thunder scares her. We get to sleep, all through the night. We can give our kids all the things they need, and a whole lot they want. I absolutely adore Pj! I just know, it’s easier when Adam tells me no, to having more babies. I know, if I truly wanted it, he would make it happen. He’s an amazing daddy. I think I’m content, though. I would like to get back into caring for foster children, one day. We had a baby boy for about a year and a half, about 8 years ago. We also took care of a 12 year old boy, for over a year, back in 2018. His parents had become homeless. He had no way to get to school, and didn’t have regular meals. We found out through some friends of friends, and offered to let him stay with us. I took him to school, everyday. We tried to give him some happiness. His parents were able to get back on their feet, and he’s with them now. I would definitely do that kind of thing, again.

Last night, Jackie and I were talking, in the kitchen. Adam came in, around 8:15pm, and wanted me to go shower with him. I asked him to wait a little longer. When it got to 9:30pm, he wasn’t waiting any longer. Jackie was worried I was going to be in trouble for messing around for so long. He wasn’t upset, though! If he didn’t want to wait on me, he would’ve just went in and showered, without me. When we finally did get in the shower, I was in a silly mood. We were laughing and goofing around. I ended up rolling my eyes, at Adam, which is why Jackie sent this to me…

The stubborn in me told him, it was worth it, after he slapped my butt for rolling my eyes. That wasn’t a good idea. It ended up costing me a much harder slap on my ass. He ain’t playin’ around, about me rolling my eyes. Just figured I’d mention this little “slip up”.

I’m making chicken sandwiches, for supper. I’ll make some French fries, to go with. It’s a good “summery” meal, since it’s so warm out.

Kiddos should be getting off their school bus, any minute now. I’m going to get some snacks ready for them. We’ve got grapes and apple slices, today.

    1. I knowwww! I love her so much! My sister asked me to babysit, this morning. They were going to run some errands, but I was already out, doing the same. I’m bummed I missed out on a chance to spend some time with Pj!


  1. Ya know what they always say: If a lady wants s bottom slap,an eye roll will obtain it in spades,
    So help me I don’t think I know a better mama than you. I just can’t imagine not being an obese child of yours yet your two children are far from it, (Adam is working on it though 🌝)
    Thanx for this “fattening” post. (Tell Adam he is abundantly blessed to have you. He probably already knows it but tell him anyways.)

    1. Haha! Yes, that’s a sure way to get a good smack on my behind. I really have held so many eye rolls back, but they still slip out, sometimes.
      Adam spent an hour working out, yesterday evening! I’m proud of how hard he’s working on that! He keeps teasing he’ll be able to spank me even harder… Also, I did show him your comment 🙂
