I didn't talk to my pops much during the time I was pregnant and going through all of the many changes of these past few months. I think maybe he had a hard time understanding and grasping all that was happening...it was happening so fast. I imagine he had many concerns that went unvoiced, unspoken. Hearsay lets me know it was harder than he let on to me. It couldn't have been easy for him to have me disappoint him by what went on. He still has a church congregation who look to him for guidance, and I'm sure he had a lot to deal with -- I'm sure he felt he had some smut on his face because of my choices.
All in all I think he just wants the best for me. I imagine any father only wants the best for his little one...I know me and Jr.'s daddy only want the very best for him.
My dad called the other day just to chat and see how we were all doing. We hadn't done that in a while.
It was nice.
