My mom turned 16 just My mom didn’t raise no fool and If she did it was my brother shirt weeks after my birth. My father was 26. It was in the mid-50s. A new baby every 2 years. After the 5th baby, they got divorced. In their case, it was my dad who was probably not very mature. He wanted a pretty girl he thought to raise and a big family and blah, blah, blah. By the 3rd baby, he was getting drunk frequently. I know because he left us locked in the car in the farthest corner of the parking lot of a bar that very cold January night. Then he started disappearing for a long time, and he would not allow mom to work so we were hungry very often. By the 5th child, he became very violent to her. When she came out of the hospital she left him. Then at 27 with 5 children, divorced, no education, and pregnant with a 6th child, she moves us to another state.
My mom didn’t raise no fool and If she did it was my brother shirt, sweater, hoodie, and ladies tee
Best My mom didn’t raise no fool and If she did it was my brother shirt
I believe that she was trying very My mom didn’t raise no fool and If she did it was my brother shirt hard to be an adult, to do what she needed to do for us & for herself. My biggest complaint then was that she never told us what was going on. She was not “our best friend”, she was “the mom” and she was very clear about that. We were the children and we could play & scream & fight & make messes… She never included us in her adult concerns; like moving! Just came home from school one day, to a for-sale sign in the front yard & a car loaded up with a few things. “Get in the car.” was all the notice we got. Once I hit puberty, things got tense. I understood that I was reminding her of herself. But that lack of communication thing made my life pretty intolerable. How can a teenage mom raise a teenager without some rapport? Without a support system? Grandparents even?
