Vanessa Gets A Visitor (Photostory)
It's Saturday and Vanessa has calmed down enough to get on with her weekend. She is starting the day, where else, on her computer. Checking her emails, and doing a little research for work.
Alicia is busy playing with her carriage and invisible baby.
"Goodness. Every time I answer one email, another one pops up. I really need to get off this computer." (Vanessa to herself)
"Mommy, baby wants to go outside." (Alicia)
"The baby will have to wait until later. We have to get ready for your godbrother. He's coming by to see us." (Vanessa)
Vanessa turns back to the computer and decides to walk away from it. She has too much to do, and her godson will be here any minute.
She does a quick once over with the vacuum cleaner. She'll do a more thorough cleaning next weekend.
Alicia starts mimicking the vacuum cleaner with her baby carriage.
"Are you helping, Mommy?" (Vanessa)
"Mommy, me cleaning da floor." (Alicia)
"I see you. You're doing a good job. Remember how fun this is when you get a little older." (Vanessa)
Vacuuming done, and now it's time to get dressed.
"Alright little momma. It's time to get dressed." (Vanessa)
Thirty minutes later, they emerge from the bedroom.
"Do you want to play with your carriage or watch tv?" (Vanessa)
"Okay sit here while I find the remote." (Vanessa)
"Ut oh." (Alicia)
"It's just the door. Stay right here." (Vanessa)
Vanessa answers the door and invites Quentin, her godson, into the living room.
"Hello handsome. It's so good to see you. Seems like it's been forever." (Vanessa)
"I know. I'm sorry. School and football have been keeping me very busy." (Quentin)
"I'm just glad you found some time for me. Give me another hug." (Vanessa)
"Q. Q. Q." (Alicia)
"Hello beautiful. You still remember me." (Quentin)
"Of course she remembers you. Come and sit down and fill me in." (Vanessa)
"So tell me everything. How's school? How's football? Are you dating anyone serious?...." (Vanessa)
"Hold up. One question at a time." (Quentin)
Quentin and Vanessa spend time talking about his classes and the football season.
"Okay, now that covers school and football. What's going on with the ladies? Is there anyone special." (Vanessa)
"It's a little complicated. Yes, I do have someone special...." (Quentin)
"What do you mean, it complicated? She's not pregnant, is she?" (Vanessa)
"OH NO! Nothing like that. But there's this other girl that I think likes me, too." (Quentin)
"Oh goodness. Well you are young, and you shouldn't feel obligated to be tied down at such a young age. On the other hand, please don't play around with these ladies hearts. Be honest with them and let the chips fall where they may." (Vanessa)
Vanessa and Quentin continue visiting. She convinces him to come back later to have dinner with the family.
Today is my godson's birthday! Happy birthday, Quentin. Of course that didn't dawn on me until I looked at Facebook this morning. Thank goodness for FB when it comes to birthdays. I am the worst! How ironic that I shot this story a couple days ago without even realizing I would be posting it on his birthday. The stars aligned again. This is an interview Quentin did a couple months ago. The picture below that is the one I showed you guys 2.5 yrs ago. Can you believe how quickly time is flying!!! This kid will be graduating soon. Unbelievable!
