I call them my Goddess Babies.
I took one of them to see X Men 2… (which was only moderately okay as far as I am concerned) but It was kind of cool hanging out with her.
She’s you know a typical 8 year old. She’s also very perceptive, frighteningly so. This is one of the only babies I have ever spent extended periods taking care of her. When she was little, I would baby-sit her for sometimes a whole weekend almost a week. She and I had a good time together. She took her first steps when I was there, and I always have a special place in my heart for her.
I’ve been promising her to take her to the movies for a while now. I’ve been so busy at work and tired too so today I just really wanted to give her some of time.
So we had ice-cream, pop-corn, Sprite and we played some kind of Star Trek arcade game where the Borg were invading Voyager…. that was kind of cool. She’s a good girl.
I think I want to start finding ways to spend more time with her, especially since I will be moving further away in a week or two. She’s like the only on of my Goddess babies that live her in T&T with me. The other three are in Barbados, and I miss them terribly.
I think it’s very cool that all four of my Goddess Babies love me. I love that I have personal relationships with all of them. They all know me and consider them a part of their lives, even if they don’t see me every day. I think that is cool…See, I;m not a bullshit Goddess Mother, I take it seriously.
I think it’s no accident I have these four young women in my life. I think it’s great that the mothers of these girls trusted me with their children’s lives and have been very clear that if anything ever happened to them, they would have no problem with me raising and caring for their children. That is cool….
I miss Oingy-Boingy and Vey-vuse and Ms. Tea (my pet names for the other three girls.) I’ve taken all of them to the movies as well, and I wish I could turn it into a ritual for all of them. I want to be a constant guiding force in all their lives. I guess I’ll just have to try and do the best that I can.
BTW…. I bought my ticket for the first showing of the Matrix in Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday May 21, tonight. Oooooohhhhhh, I am just salivating.
