Give thanks my children and others recognize the effort eye put forth in making sure my children are whole in spite of their Father's absence. Honestly, eye do not put myself on a pedestal simply because he has chosen a hands off approach to parenting, but it is what it is. By default eye hold it down, over-compensate, and over-function, it's certainly not my chosen path. Healthiness IS my chosen path, so it must happen at all costs.
Eye do what eye do because my commitment has ALWAYS been to "do my best, be my best, give my best, and live my best" to and for my seeds. "One monkey don't stop no show", so his choices do not excuse me from my purpose - and eye know this. With that said, eye want to make it clear that my role is not that of Mom and Dad, as many suggest, rather just being the dopest kind of Umi that ever existed. Don't know how to be a Father, and don't wanna be (stand at a urinal, no thank you...lol)...but a purposed, called, dedicated, original, unique, sharp-skilled and hard loving Mami...aww, sooky sooky, I AM!!!
