So I know I’ve been horrible at updating this blog lately. School was kicking my ass and my life revolved pretty much around homework and my son, but it’s over now and I’m proud to say I ended it with a 4.0 BAM! Hopefully I can knock it out next semester as well. I’m trying really hard to get scholarships to help my out financially so that I don’t have to quit my program. I have about 3 more years to go so I need all of the help I can get. Being a single mom, going to college full time and trying to work is not an easy task so I want to make it as easy as possible on myself. I’ve found some scholarships for bipolar and a couple for women of computer sciences. If anyone knows anymore for single moms or something please let me know!
Things have been going pretty well my son is 2.5 now. Can you believe it? I can’t! He talks sooooooooooooo much now! Within the past week or so his vocabulary has increased about 2x what it had before. He’s such a bigga man and so smart.
I haven’t talked to Daddy much lately because of school and me not having time. We went to see him in September I think. “Hey check this out”, he said looking around to see if any guards were near or watching us before he rolled up the sleeves on his periwinkle button up shirt. Across his arm in big, bold, blue letters it read JAKOBE, our son’s name. His very first prison tattoo. He looked at it and our son proudly. “Do you like it?” He asked. I don’t know what to think. I guess its flattering but prison tats are so gross, though admittedly this was well done for what it was. He’s been trying as much as he can. Christmas cards and a $50 gift card to buy toys. Still it feels like we’re not doing enough. Jack has been sorta forgetting him. He has to take a minute to remember his face when he sees pictures then he’s like “Oh that’s my daddy!” Prison relationships of any kind, especially when there are children involved FREAKIN SUCK!
