A letter to my daughter

Hello London,

You are currently 2 months old and I have to say I love you to pieces. You are the joy of my life. I never thought my heart could swell so big, I never knew I could love so big, and you, yes you young lady are the cause of it. I think back on your journey into my life, and I believe you were brought here to give me a purpose. Some of that purpose is to pour into you, all of the good qualities I hold and, all of the ones I want you to have. You will be a wonder. You will be amazing. You are truly a blessing that inspires me to do better. You are motivation. I cannot wait to show you what success is, and that the climb to it is the hardest, but most important part. I think that everyone’s life you come into, you bring happiness . I only expected you to bring joy into my life and now I see that the happiness you give me expands into others lives. ¬†When I prayed for joy and happiness in my life, it came in the most unexpected way, you. When you 1st arrived, I was unsure of what to do. Those big pretty eyes opened, and showed me that love still exists, it is still a reality. Now I know why children enrich a persons life, I now have 1st hand experience. Daughter, I want you to know God, I want you to know faith, I want to you to know that prayer works. Your existence is the proof. I love you London P. Tucker with all of my heart. Muah.

Trip to Atlanta and Such

Last week,

Me and my dad road tripped it to Atlanta. We could have flown, which is the easier alternative. I have not taken a road trip with him since I was a little girl, maybe four! So, it was a great bonding experience. We took our time, started out early, laughed joked and got there safely.

Our reason for traveling so far was for a few reasons; He has not seen his step son from his 1st marriage since the 90’s, and I wanted to see my Extended family on my Mothers side. I got to see my Aunt, my cousins, and even got to hang out with everyone. It was overdue and I plan on coming back. I also got to bond with my Stepbrother and his wife. It was overall an awesome experience.

I found out that I am pretty good at training dogs too. They had a big dog, a lab mix named Taz, and he was a very active dog. So I taught him a few more commands in addition to the ones my stepbro and wife taught him and helped him get more freedom! They kept him in the cage because he could be so excited with company. By the time I left back for Houston, he was a cool calm and collect dog. Exciting stuff. Gizmo, however, might not like that I cheated on him with another dog. LOL That is a whole other story. So I am officially 16 weeks and 5 days preggers and I am starting to poke out. Let me tell you it is weird and awesome. The only dislike I have is my breasts. They are LARGE. They have doubled in size and I think they are not done growing. I am glad I am tall and tig ol’es fit my body type. Otherwise it would truly look like I had some work done LOL.

School has really kept me busy and with me trying to do it all and realizing I cannot, I have to learn to prioritize a little bit better. I am working on it!
