Happy Birthday Baby

leave a comment »

Today is the 16th birthday of yours that we have had together. We’ve come a long way from  your 21st birthday spent in Aarons apartment … So many years have gone by .. so fast.
I remember the moment I first saw you as clearly as if it were yesterday…  standing in the arcade.. schoolin em all, MrBigMan.
So many people have learned the hard way…many more still yet to learn… that going head to head with MaxX is certain defeat.  Ive always loved that about you… standing back and watching you claim victory after victory, with ease. Your soul feeds on the thrill of the extreme .. your spirit always driving for more, only relenting when your body rests.
The first day we met I fell in love with the way you protect that which you love.  Because of you I dont know fear of the world, for I have always stood at my place under your watchful eye. Youre the reason I have no fear in my soul .. you’ve always protected me and defended me as you would the heart that pumps the blood through your veins.
There are loads of people out there who have seen you interact with a child .. those that have seen this have no doubt noted your gentle compassion .. few know as intimately as I do just how genuine and compassionate the love you have for a child really is.  I was the one lucky enough to be the mother of your own.
I love the way you look at me, your eyes plead with me to feel the love in your heart. I love the way you say my name .. with the same tenderness as a kiss placed on a newborn babes nose.
We’ve been married for ten of these last 16 years and I still tingle when I hear you speaking to someone and you say “my wife”.  I love (and hate) the way you lean in just close enough so that I am sure to smell your skin when Im angry. You know that your scent is a drug I just cant resist.
I love that you adore every piece of me … I love how I can make you say please and thank you.
I love that you’ll stumble around the room in the dark looking for pants so you can go downstairs for the eighth time tonight to check out the noise that I.Know.I.Heard and you never complain. Every time you go, you come back to bed and wrap me back up in your arms and tell me to kick you harder next time I hear something. That is Love.
I love that youve handled each and every loose and lost tooth because your wussy wifey cant even talk about loose teeth without needing to be revived by defibrilator. (Dont worry, Danny was standing by after I typed that last bit and everything is fine .. he’s a champ at CPR!)
I love the way you know everything there is to know about anything, and the way you share all that you know with the babies. I love the talent you have seeping from your soul and the desire burning in your heart.
For your 30th birthday I threw you a party with friends and family. Your cake said “Happy Birthday You Old Goat” and you didnt like that.  I will apologize now, babe. I was wrong. I never should have put that on your 30th Birthday cake. You werent an old goat …
But you ARE NOW!!

Happy Birthday Baby!

All my love now and every tomorrow,

When Madness worked at the furniture store which shall remain nameless, she would study the furniture on the set and have no idea what the show was about. This drove MaxX insane.

Dont forget to have a look at all of this weeks online secrets here.

a terrible thirst for blame

leave a comment »

I know youre here … youre reading everything Im saying .. so read this .. hear this.

This isnt about you anymore. This isnt about him anymore. This isnt about me anymore.

You arent just impeding on my marriage anymore, Ms Grant, youre tearing my family apart… not just my marriage .. MY FAMILY.

He and I have five children, five LIVES, we created. Five futures MaxX and Me are responsible for.  Perhaps youre not understanding the GRAVITY of what Im talking about here, Sam.

October 14, 1994 – Our daughter was born.  Our first born daughter is going to be 14 this year. This is going to be her last year in middle school .. MaxX and Me are going to be the parents of a high school Freshman this time next year.  A High School Freshman. Our daughter isnt going to be sweatin her ass off at the Hut or LJS after high school … OUR daughter is going to College five years from now. Five years in the life of a child who has the world at her fingertips is quite literally a blink of an eye.  

Our daughter needs her parents guidance right now more than ever. She needs and deserves our devotion and commitment to the rest of her life .. right now.  Our daughter doesnt deserve to have her parents and her family torn apart in divorce and despair. Our daughter doesnt deserve to have her life torn apart… and right now , Samantha Grant, you are the one that is putting our daughter at risk of suffering just that. 

Remember this isnt about YOU anymore Ms. Grant.

December 1, 1995 – Our son was born. Everything I said about our daughter up there .. applies to him too… and him, her and her too.
October 16, 1007 – Our second son was born.
April 22, 2000 – Our third child, another daughter was born.
November 13, 2001 – Our baby, our third daughter was born.

(See how this isnt about you anymore, dear.)

Every one of our children deserve to have their family together, focused, committed and happy.

MaxX and Me have had horrible times over the last sixteen years. Heartache, betrayal .. despair. The worst of the worst is what we’ve put each other through. You were brought into an intimate situation between MaxX and Me… we had our reasons, you had yours.

What you need to realize now is that you need to remove youself from our family. No, youre not “friends” with my husband…  No. Youre not.  Who and what you were to MaxX last fall and winter puts you on the exclusive list of “Ineligible for Friends Status” list .. for obvious reasons. 

I was told time and again that you “knew what this was going into it” .. and yet .. when the time came for it to end .. suddenly ya’ll didnt want it to be what it was .. and you started fighting for it to become that which it never could or should be.  That is when this became an attack on my family , my children .. not just my marriage. And that is where this has crossed a line that I will defend to my last day.

Step on Ms. Grant.  This is not a fight you want to fight with Me.

Madness doesnt know if the *Tingle* shes feeling today is caused by the fact that she is experiencing the the destruction of her life.. or possibly its the beginnings of that stroke we all know is coming.

Or maybe.. perhaps somehow.. it has to do with the prospects of THIS (read that)

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the White House .. John Edwards as Attorney General.  Barack, if youre listening… and I know you are… go ahead and DO IT.  You know youve thought about it.. those words have been lingering in your head for quite some time now .. whispering to you in the night … “DreamTeam” .. Obama is poised to take this country and its government by the hand and make us great again.

Obama, dont stop at Clinton and Edwards.. oh no.. keep going. Youve got all kinds of Top Head Official spots to fill with totally awsome people.. hell.. I bet you could even talk Slick Willie into taking a seat in the big house again. Oh that would be awsome.

So yeah.. Obama.. you DO IT ma brotha!

*UGH* Sadly.. Madness still thinks the *Tingle* is due to her sky high blood pressure, courtesy of people who are committed ONLY to killing her slowly and painfully.
