So, then I had to call lil mama back and tell her if she wanted to quit, I would understand. I was fighting with that decision because you don’t just up and quit *ish. Especially stuff I paid my damn money for! Just like the elderly, every year several kids die or pass out from heat exhaustion so I get it. It is hot as hell outside. But……I paid $250 for you to go to this damn camp for 4 days! It’s from 9-4, that’s only 7 damn hours! You mean to tell me that you can’t make it happen for four days. There’s no way in hell I would’ve been able to quit. My mama would’ve looked at me stupid and told me the only way that I could quit is if I died out there! I don’t believe in quitting so of course I’m in a bind.
I’m teetering on the side of child abuse by making her go out there in extreme conditions but at the same time, I don’t want my lil mama to hurt herself in any way. Do you know what I could be doing with that damn $250?!
That really made me proud. I was proud of the fact that she didn’t give up and she was going to tough it out. She’s learning some new things and she’s enjoying herself. I had a proud dad moment. Because if she would’ve decided to quit I might’ve had a moment and slapped my $250 up out her a** on GP! Going around wasting money, you’s a damn fool!
I don’t remember it ever being hot in Huxtable land so I don’t really know what Cliff would do. He always had on those damn sweaters……

There’s a big issue with the whole thing though. She’s going to be over there for the next month seeing, hearing, and doing stuff that isn’t allowed in my house and after 30 days she is coming back and I am going to have to deal with it. I am going to have to deprogram her a** all over again. It was hard enough doing it the first time and now I’ll have to do it again. So much tomfoolery (I love that word) goes on over there. Lil mama’s mama is an idiot sometimes and she lets her get away with murder. It isn’t cool. Manners, gone. Respect, gone. Diet and exercise, gone. It all pisses me off because we’ve put in so much work to get things where they need to be and it’s all going to come unraveled. I am no saint and it ain’t all good at my crib but there is structure and accountability. I’m too easy sometimes and I do let lil’ mama get away with stuff but I don’t baby her, I’m not her friend, and she is responsible for herself and her actions. She doesn’t really like me and I’m more than alright with that.
I’m trying not to be pissed about it because there isn’t much I can do. I can only sit back and wait to see the mess that comes back home.
Well, again, there isn’t much I can do about her leaving and to be honest, I miss her a little. Not a lot, she gets on my damn nerves! However, I do miss her and I’ll be happy when she comes home. She won’t, at all, but I will.
