Losing a loved one or someone that you really care about is never that easy. I lost people when I was growing up but it was different because I really wasn’t that close to them. It is hard losing someone close to you whether it’s a family member or a close friend. I’ve lost relatives and friends of the family growing up but the hardest one of all was losing my brother. My brother is the second oldest out of eight kids. Even though he was older than me, we were close. Losing my brother was one of the hardest days of my life. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a day before my brother had passed away that my mom had gotten a phone call from one of his friends saying that he’s in the hospital. After my mom, had gotten off the phone she just started crying while I and my two other brothers were trying to figure out what was wrong. My mom told us that our brother Lifi was in the hospital.
Are you hiding in the closet right now with claws on the other side of the door scratching with the monster on the other side calling out daddy? Well sir, you have a teenage daughter that is coming into her prime and you have no idea how to deal with it. As you are sitting there in the dark with the baseball bat that you are supposed to be using for intruders, thinking back to when the Ex-wife was going through all of this and trying to remember what you did then? Well I am here to tell you that unfortunately you cannot run to the garage or shed to work on something because now you are the one that has to deal with it. There may be times where you don't have to worry about it and they are on their "monthly flow" issues while they are away at their mother's house, but there will be a time that you are going to draw the short straw and have to deal with that issue on the weekend that she is with you. Fear not my friend, I am here to help!
It's 7pm, the kids are hungry and you are use to just going into the kitchen and popping in a frozen pizza or taking a handful of chips while you are watching a game or something and yet now you have a little one or multiple little ones to take care of and you are stuck... fear not, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. And no, it is not in the form of someone that knows how to cook, it's the fact that I am about to help you in this race for the dad of the year award. (no there is not one outside of a macaroni picture that is hanging on the fridge, believe me I have looked.) whether you are a seasoned cook or don't know how to boil water to save your life, these next options might just save the day for you!
The moment we realise we are pregnant follows the darker, larger news: the realisation of loss. K is in violent, harrowing pain and a pregnancy test confirms the best – and worst – news all at once. After years of trying for a baby, the silver lining flickers past as we swing between the comfort of achievement and no comfort at all.
