Anytime a phone call from my daughter starts with…

“Daddy… I don’t want you to get mad but I have to tell you something.”

I worry.

“Daddy, you know mommy has a new boyfriend and he is moving in with us, him and lizabeth. Would you be mad because I called him daddy today cause I miss you and he’s like my daddy now but not really because he’s here and you’re in Texas”

My response…


I asked her please just call him Brandon for now.

and I’m going to have to do some heavy thinking this weekend.


One thought on ““Daddy…”

  1. One of the most heart wrenching things I have ever read. Almost made me cry. Give me a call if you need to talk/vent. I got no advice, just an ear.
