You’re a parent. It’s okay to not be okay sometimes. Raising someone who constantly presses your buttons is taxing at times but at the end day you love them.
This is Gizmo. She’s my “model” for my hats for cats portion of this blog. My family raised her since she was two days old. She was born on April 17th, 2013 behind a shed next to my Nana’s house. We don’t know if her mother abandoned her and her two siblings who didn’t make it or if she passed away 😿 which I hope not but my Nana told my mom she heard kittens crying so, naturally we rescued the kittens.
We had her in a pet taxi with the heater on because she was too young to keep her body heat stable on her own. We fed her KMR every two hours and would be sure to stimulate her so she can go potty. She was too small to drink from a bottle at the time which is why we used a dropper to feed her. I can still remember seeing her ears twitch when she’d feed.
Now she’s big and spoiled. Everyone loves her. 😸 She’s a bratty cat, too but she’s part of the family. I remember when I was in the early months of my pregnancy, she’d lay on my belly like she knew there was someone growing inside of me. Pets aren’t just pets; they’re family. 😸
“I love her dearly
She began life inside me
Now walks beside me.”
That was from one of my Haikus that I dedicated to my brat. Here is our completed abstract piece.. it was supposed to be of “Piccorine” but she added her touch to it. No, it’s not the Piccorine drawing I posted last time; she hasn’t and won’t touch that one. Enjoy!
I’m not done yet but here’s what we’ve got thus far.
To my jerk daughter. I love her so much even though she’s a monster. 💜
1) I love her dearly
She began life inside me
Now walks beside me.
2) When I look at you
I know I have a reason
To breathe and to live.
3) I will protect you
For you are my purpose to
Push forward in life.
4) Love is when you look
At your amazing daughter
And feel completed.
An apology I have to accept even though one was never given and probably never be given.
So, my little brat wanted to add her two cents in my drawing.. and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 😊
Isn’t always peaches and cream. There are times when your kid does some annoying shit and has you questioning your ways. I can admit there were times I’d wonder whether or not I made the right decision having a child; she wasn’t planned and was actually supposed to be prevented.
Those feelings don’t define you as a parent; we all get them every once in a while. I love my child with all my heart, but I’m also human. I can’t be perfect all the time, or ever. I make my mistakes and wonder why I solely took on this responsibility but those are just thought formed from moments of frustrations.
Being a single parent with no help from the other half is taxing at times but doable. It’s also rewarding to know that you’re handling it on your own. My daughter is well taken care of and I take pride knowing that I can handle the stresses that come along with parenthood and being able to afford her all on my own income.

I had to throw this in there. 😜 I drew it back on October 15, 2010. Baby Babidi and daddy Bibidi. I thought this was a suitable pic to post for the topic.

Here’s me and my monster when she was first born. I can’t believe how time flies.
