He always seemed to be talking to this girl, Sausha. They got along pretty well. I thought about what my mother had said when I was little. She’d always wanted a large, multi-generational family. I decided I would help that come true. I would have to pick someone to carry over the Mize legacy which definitely wouldn’t be an easy choice.
I also made the toughest decision of my life that year. I sent Walker to boarding school to help keep him away from trauma and a broken family. i know it sounds stupid, but at the time, I was scared and worried for his future.
Til’ next time!
My mother had always wanted a legacy in the Mize name, so I thought I would have a second child just in case the first one didn’t…work out. Chelsea was just a doll at that age. If I could pick two words to describe her then, they would be brave and athletic. Once she learned to walk around, she would always toddle away from us. She was very restless. We decided to throw Chelsea a birthday party. Leighton Sekemoto came, and I guess he’s a fairy now! The look suits him. Our little baby grew up so fast! The baby came only a few days after Chelsea’s birthday. Little Walker was an adorable baby. Chelsea was not happy that the baby slept in her room. Walker kept her up all night. She was so tired that she began checking the bed for monsters! Apparently she found one because she slept in my bed that night. The babysitter was as sweet as could be. She chatted with Chelsea and she was great with Walker. Meanwhile, I was painting more often with the extra help. This was one of my favorite paintings. Walker was getting older. He had my hair and his father’s eyes. How cute!
I had really taken to gardening in my spare time. Soon I gave birth to my little….. Chelsea Mize! While I was taking care of Chelsea, Chris liked to fix and upgrade all the household appliances. Chris really loved Chelsea and liked to spend all of his spare time with her. He had gotten a job at the local diner as a kitchen scullion after realizing his real lifetime goal was to become a celebrated 5 star chef. After my pregnancy, I started painting again. I forgot how much I really loved it. Birthday time for Chelsea! This is before her makeover… And this is after. I don’t know how, but she has my purple hair! Chris definitely contributed to her genes, as she had his mouth and nose. Chelsea was such a handful that Chris sometimes had to take over gardening. I wasn’t too appreciative of Chris teaching our little girl how to break hearts at this young of an age. I found myself running to the bathroom in the middle of the night, as I was very sick.
Today I hit the park with my brand new guitar. My old town kicked me out after they discovered I could make music with a piece of wood. They thought I was a witch. Ya…my old town was a little outdated.
