My sister is mad at me- like not talking to me mad. That's a long story- we were really close. But, she has three boys, and cares for one of my other nephews so I am "blocked" from them too. The baby of the group just turned four on the 16th, and I've been going everywhere with this bag full of Capt. America stuff, Dr. Suess book and fake tats for him, because I'm his fav, and dammit I love the shit out of that kid. I got tired of waiting and barged into their house. She was at work, so dad was a bit shocked, but I just threw my hands up and was like "I just want to give him a present and read him a book- can I do that?" So I did and left. Lil one was a happy kid- he's used to seeing me twice a week. Dad was happy to have a minute to do whatever, so it was cool.

I am going to get so much shit for that.

As an aside, all the other boys are teenagers and damn they are huge. It's only been 6 weeks since I haven't been allowed to see them, and they've gotten gargantuan. And I got hugs. And my sis should really lock the door. Anyone could walk in.

Note: answering comments I realize how messy my story is. Thanks to all of you who are hanging in there with me. I appreciate the input. This crap has been keeping me up for months now. I love you GT.
