Tellah finally has his chance to kill Golbez with The Ultimate Black Magic, Meteo, despite Cecil and Yang’s warnings that if he casts it, he’ll die. To Tellah’s credit, he does try to defeat Golbez with a barrage of his most powerful spells first.
So, our son
is almost 8 and this is the 6th year that I have been blessed to be
his Mama! I don’t know if you celebrate Christmas. I don’t know if you even know that we are celebrating,
but I am sure that each and every day you miss our boy. I am sure that you think about him, with
longing and love! I am confident that
you wonder how tall he is, how funny he is, how smart he is and how truly
perfect he is. I can tell you, he thinks
about you too! He has a lot of questions—really
good ones. And I wish I had the answers.
I wish I knew what to say all the time. I wish I knew how to remind him
ALL THE TIME how much he is loved—not just by us, but by you! All I can do is just keep saying it and
reminding him! Oh, how I wish you were
here to be able to answer some of those questions for him. How I wish that you could tell him, without my intervention, without my input,
assumptions and thoughts, how much I KNOW you truly love him. But I pray that time will allow for a moment
like that—where the two of you can share the same space, the same air and have
Today, as we
celebrate the day I became his Mama, but you are never far from our
thoughts. I need you to know that YOU
ARE STILL HIS MAMA too!!! You are
forever the reason I get to be his second Mama!
Z, as we celebrate this season and our time as a family, I hope that you
know that you are still our hero. You
are our forever angel. You are the reason
for all of this. While I am sure that
this won’t ever take away the sting of not being in his life every day, please
know you truly are a part of the fabric that makes up our family!
Scenario: Sitting on the couch getting our shoes on.
K: Mama, does that woman have a baby in her belly? (pointing to the TV). Me: I think she might, but the show didn’t say that she did. K: (confused look). Me: You know what, Love, here’s another girl rule that I want you to remember. K: (rolls eyes). Me: NEVER ask a girl if she is pregnant. If she tells you she has a baby in her belly then you can ask questions, but we never just ask a girl if she’s pregnant. And while we’re at it, why don’t you repeat back to me the other two rules you already know about girls. K: Never ask how old they are. And never ask how much they weigh. Me: Right. And now, what’s the new rule. K: Don’t ask them if they have a baby in their belly because then basically you’re calling them fat. Me: Um… yeah… that’s right, but… K: I get it Mom, let it go.
