Get me 2 CC's, STAT!

So my new name is Nurse Eric..

Ma dukes had knee replacement surgery on Monday of last week, a hectic process to say the least.. Shes a Strong lady, and I really think this was the right thing to do seeing as shes been havin knee problems for the latter of 20 years. So she finally took care of the process.. Only thing is, this is gonna be a pretty hectic rehab process.

Shes been home since Thursday of last week, and since I'm at home until the J.O.B. starts next week, Ive been playing nurse. Not to my chagrin or anything, I wouldn't have it any other way simply because of the fact that I love my mother to death, and want to make sure shes taken care of. Even if it means less and less sleep, and countless phone calls to ma cell phone LOL.. hell, it doesn't ring much anymore anyways. But it is hectic on her as a woman, and I know it wrenches her to not be able to be as mobile as she was before. In 6 to 8 Weeks though, she will be up and walking, even with the help of a cane, but her spirits should be high.

I wont lie, its a little annoying at times when some folks undermine your ability to take care of business, feeling that you are incapable of handling it all. I'm the baby boy, so lets just call it the baby boy syndrome.. and I ain't talking bout Tyrese AKA Jody either..Maybe I just don't like to feel like people in my family don't have confidence in me to accomplish a task, but damn.. Im 25. I have common sense. And if anybody wants the transition that momma has to go thru to get better smooth, its me. Ive always maintained to be the one out of the 3 children she has to lag back and ensure that everything is sufficient and taken care of while the other 2 go about their business. Your mind almost makes you have a mommas boy mentality in a sense when your the only boy, and the youngest...

So as I sit and sip this Heineken from the bottle, and relax my mind as well as my body, I think that the rest of this week should be a good one, at least I'm hoping. Let me ask, do you ever get the feeling that people, preferably the elders in your family look at you as if you aren't able to accomplish even the smallest task???.. I mean damn, my grandmother called me a baby today LOL.. " that baby don't need to be doin that.." WTF?

Take me away Mr. Mayer....cause I don't wanna let it take me down..

on one level, i can understand what grandma means because in comparison to her- you are definitly a baby; HOWEVER, the view that you are such a baby that you can't also be an adult is a little off and should be adjusted...

my dad cut me loose awhile ago and only steps in when I seem to be floundering (which is never...lol)

kiki said...

most older adults feel that the youngest is the most immature and don't know any better, so no matter how much you try to fight it your always going to be a baby to them

I love gravity by john mayer

I hope your mom feels better

MsPuddin said...

Eb the Celeb said...

aaawwee... you know you are always going to be the baby... no matter how old you get... so just embrace it...

I wish I could be the baby sometimes... but I'm the oldest...so I am the one everyone always comes to asking for money... would you prefer that?

I think not! I'd take the baby any day!

Charece said...

I know what you mean I'm the youngest too and my family always refers to me as baby, and its annoying cause that gives em even more reason to treat you like one. I find myself doing certain things just to affirm my age or maturity just to prove a point beacause I get so sick and tired of being seen or refered to as the "baby".

A TRUE GENTLEMEN!

Nice to see you taking care of mama....

tell her to be easy, my grandma just went thru the same thing about 3 months back. it's a long process....

good luck! :)

LovexHate said...

Lol.. aww i think you're right with the whole "baby boy" thing because my little brother (yr younger than me) goes through exactly the same thing, me and my older sisters sometimes understimate him.. but thats slowly changing lol

Niki said...

Honestly homie, I wish I had your problem...my fam has always put alot of pressure on me from jump...as a kid I had sooooo much more responsibility than other kids my age and even my siblings. I am the my families "go-to girl" I moved to NYC to try to escape that weight but damn that Alexander Graham Bell for inventing the telephone!!!!

conclusion-I envy your situation but then again...the grass is always greener.

Monie said...

Heineken's give me headaches.

I feel for you but I can't relate. Of the 3 of us, I'm the most responsible and I'm the MIDDLE child. I'm counted on to do and handle everything. It can get hard...
