    Got a call from a friend today.
    Said he had something to say.
    Mind you he's not my man you see.
    But a really good friend to me.
    We did the date thing, but decided
    we would rather be bud's, no reason
    just because!

    Today he found out at age 37, that
    he had a little girl...I shrieked, "Oh
    Heaven"! Was it the last girl, no he
    replies...I wait again , and then he
    sighs. I know what's coming and I
    just wait til he's ready...see he and
    the woman they never even went
    steady!

    Now you know I have my point of
    view, I share it with him like I share
    it with you. "What the hell were you
    thinking I cried"! You know you say
    you didn't want to be a Daddy alibi.
    She wasn't sure for almost a year.
    And now she's calling saying your
    a daddy my dear. Seems the other
    guy was hooked on drugs....
    I told him don't do no nookie if
    it ain't about love.

    I recounted many a night when we
    were between lovers, he at his house
    me at mine , late in the night snuggled down in our covers.
    We talked about our dreams , our wishes,mistakes and made new committments to our self, that we wouldn't do to ourselves what we wouldn't wish on someone else.
    To have a child without love...
    Not with Baby mama drama...To be a parent by choice...and when we marry there would be no divorce! Talking about other people respectively of course.

    But now you telling me about a DNA
    test...I grab a cigarette and get ready for the rest.
    Well I guess I am Auntie B, you said..."B, she look just like me!"
    Well I say is that all it takes these days. You say you don't know what it means. You called me to make sure it wasn't a dream...
    that by speaking it aloud you could admit it to yourself.
    Do you realize the first few moments you referred to the child as it...see that's what ya call bullshyt!

    I know you didn't want your child like this...but I guess you couldn't resist.
    "I say what do you want me to say?"
    I already know you have had a shiddy day! So I draw softly on my cigarette and I ask you for the only time ever....
    "Good news or Bad news"?
    And don't you dare say whatever!
    You say "I just don't know!"
    The lesson to me is clear I say.
    If you didn't practice safe sex you gamble that it will turn out this way.
    I hear you moan and say for the second time..."I just don't know!"
    I say remember what I said about
    the daddy alibi...In your bed you
    made it now in it you must lie!

    Thanks so much for reading!

    Yes, this is a most disheartening thing as a mother/grandmother, I have stressed the importance of safe sex/abstinence and selective dating to my sons and peers. They think I preach to much, but I know first hand why the children are the way they are, I worked with kids for 22 years and I never failed to pick out the unwanted babies...the ones with no father or who had been totally abandoned. So I hope someone gets the message. I am not being sanctimonious or judgemental, I got pregnant before I was married to my son's father, I eventually married him and stayed married for 17 years, long enough for my son to have the benefit of a two parent family with as much love and support as we knew how...It's our duty!

    Blessings Your Houses!

    Thanks Angelicsage...

    Girl,
    You know this is the M.O, now this is my boy and I am there for him for whatever, but I was truly disappointed with him.
    And you know I had to let him know...
    So that's the way the story goes.
    Blessings On Your House!
