All My Children

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Oct-24-2012

Yesterday was just another day. I watched ( stalked ) The Baby on FB, kept my Skype open and basically, didn’t do much. I am getting very good at this, doing nothing.

I was just settling down to read for a bit when I heard that squirt from Skype : it was The Baby, she had a fight with The Father, could she come and see me ?

Sure, I said. Tell me about the fight. Well, it was a fight with The Girl. Whatever, I am always here for you.

She turned up at about 4, 4.30. She quickly went into The Big City ( there had been a small snag in her plans) and returned about half way through Dr. Phil.

Closing my eyes ( I am a good sport) she eventually brought a small apple pie with 5 candles to the table, singing *Happy Birthday * to me, and then put decorations up in my studio of my own.

Happy Birthday To Me !

 

Festive ! ( CED: we look FAT !)

We ate some pie, ordered some Chinese and then sat together for a few hours catching up. She showed me her latest grades from school and her latest Math homework and I am very proud of her indeed.

Then she told me about how she had managed to get here. She went to the Principle’s office and explained that she wanted the last two hours of school off so that she could buy a present for her Mother. She got the * we don’t allow this* routine, and broke into tears, not like The Baby at all. The Principle was horrified, and let her go ( come ?).

Baby then called The Girl ( should we start calling her * The Warden * ?), to let her know where she would be.

Maybe The Warden has problems with me, but she could not stop Baby from seeing me. She did threaten to kick Baby out of the room that they share (my old room of my own) if Baby came to see me, but Baby thought this through very logically: Baby has the only bed at home, much easier if The Girl moves out. End of story. That was- of course- the short version. I am positive that many *bleeps* were exchanged during this exchange: know my girls. Pig headed and potty mouthed.

I did contact The Father, to be sure that he knew where Baby was. He did. But one can never be sure if the message was passed along and I didn’t want him to worry about Baby.

It was a lovely and touching gesture on her part, more meaningful than a gallon of Chanel.

I walked her to the bus station and she helped me with my garbage.

When I walked home, I passed one of the bouncers at the pot shop.

We chatted for a moment- I will tell you when I spoke English.

He asked me if I had had a nice walk, and I said that I just took my youngest daughter to the bus station, beautiful girl, I said.

He said that he had noticed us because of the two bags of garbage and that Baby was too young for him.

I said, yup, she is ( echt waar), she is 12.

He looked stunned, really ? ( echt waar ) ?

( English) Yes, I was there. And then I hobbled on.

At midnight, Baby was up, to be the first to officially wish me Happy Birthday.

As to CED, I simply said, look, we weigh between 44 and 46 kilos at 5’2. If you choose OmarĀ  The Tent Maker as your couturier, we are going to look fat. End of story.

On to my birthday dinner- a cheapo Italian, but we have been going there for 23 years, since I received my first pay check, and everyone can always find something they like to eat there.

CED and I both really want a prime cut of beef. Nothing Italian about that !
