Day 6 Matthew my oldest and his family.
Matthew is my first-born. He weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces. He was born on the first day of spring and 3 days after my 16th birthday. Yes, I was very young when I had him. I stilled lived at home and was still going to school.
When Matthew was 10 months old I moved out on my own. Matthew was a very spoiled child. He was the first grandchild for my parents and me living at home just made it worse. Matthew and my dad were very close.
When I would go to school my mom would care for Matthew. My mom would sit every morning while she had her coffee and would talk to Matthew. I think because Matthew had all of that attention he was very advanced in his learning.
Matthew was a little story-teller when he was young. I will never forget him jumping up and down by the window and he hit behind his ear on the windowsill. It looked horrible. He went to school (Preschool) and the teacher asked him what happen. Matthew said: his friend’s mom did it and that I beat her up for it and we both went to jail. The teacher called me and ask me about it and I told her what really happen. Then Matthew heard my dad tell my mom that the guy down at the car lot tied him up all day and it was bullshit. Matthew went for a walk with my younger sister Lisa and my cousin Kim and when they came back from their walk, my aunt Linda asked Matthew if he had fun. Matthew looked at my aunt and said, Dude tied me up and that was bullshit 🙂 This kid was a very comical kid and picked up on everything. My aunt was ready to call the police and spank them girl’s butts.
Matthew is now 27 years old. He is married to a very beautiful woman. He has four kids. My first granddaughter and his first child is Grace. I lived in Tennessee when Grace was born. I went to Michigan once she was born but I missed out a lot on her baby life. Grace is a very smart little girl and yes she has that little prissy attitude right now. Grace will be 8 years old the end of this month.
Then Matthews second born is Matthew 2nd. We call him little Matthew. Little Matthew is a handful. He is very short-tempered and he is a mamma’s boy. Little Matthew was born a day before my birthday. He loves them cherry tomatoes. His grandpa (Bill) would always get them for him. Little Matthew turned 6 years old this year.
Next is the twins. Kerrirose and John 2nd. Kerrirose got her name by putting her two grandma’s names together. John is named after his uncle that passed away before he was born. I moved back to Michigan before Ashley was pregnant with the twins. Ashley and Matthew lived with us through her pregnancy and after the twins were born. The twins were born in Oct of 2013. This was the first time I lived in Michigan when one or in this case two of my grandbabies were born. Ashley gave me the honor of being in the delivery room when she had them. Ashley had a C-section and that was the first and I hope the last time I am in a room when a c-section is being done. John really didn’t want to start breathing when he came out and that scared the living hell out of me. I was frozen after the babies were born. They told me to take pictures and I did take a few but when John didn’t want to cry I was in shock instantly. It broke my heart when I left Michigan this time because I knew what I was leaving. I miss my kids and grands but I just can’t do Michigan.
Matthew is married to a very beautiful girl named Ashley. Ashley is fun to be around because I think she likes to be a goofball at times, She is the girl who will make you laugh.
I am proud of Matthew for the most part but don’t truly understand some of the things he does. He tries hard and he loves his wife and kids. He was a very hard worker until last summer he was on a roof because he worked for a roofing company and he fell off the roof and broke bones. He is no longer able to work and is still looking at more surgeries. The roofing company is trying to say he never worked for them so my son is tied up in a lawsuit and struggling to get workmen’s comp.
