Last Saturday (9th) the lil one accompanied me on my journeys – She was good the entire day – Had to get fingerprinted for one of my jobs, then we made our way over to my mother’s house – My aunt was partaking in a luncheon at her church so we went over there- it was interesting and amusing to see the variation of looks that I received – some because they haven’t seen me in so long – some because they didn’t know who I was and tried to connect dots, and others because I was with my daughter and no woman to be seen – Because the absence of a father in our community has become a norm, it seems odd to others when one is alone with their child, especially at a young age.
