Larry Livingston Robinson. An alcoholic who spent his days running from the courts, getting paid under the table, never securing an address, being unfaithful, and having eight kids with four different women. Meet my dad.
Remember when I said my birth would've been special if my dad didn't ruin it? Well, I wasn't a planned pregnancy. My mom only told me this story once and she never bought it up again. She never made me feel like I was a mistake or anything, but I was. I'm glad she decided to keep me, but even though my dad was a piece of shit, he did choose the perfect mom so I guess he gets a cookie for that.
Well, thanks for asking! My mom was going to leave town and move down south with some friends because her life was getting a little too hectic. Before she left, she felt bad that my father had waited two years to be intimate with her. So she decided the night before she left, she would change that. The night she decided to leave, they had sex. He didn't want her to leave so, he placed a hole in the condom before it went down. Go figure. Smartest man on earth. She was 35 at the time. I don't honestly know if she was ready for a child at that time but she decided to keep me anyway. Even though she kept me, it would've been nice to be asked first. Just saying. He liked the fact that my mom was more of a 'wife' type then the girls he messed with so he thought that her having his baby would make her marry him. Uh alright?? She later found out that he wasn't faithful during the two years and actually had 7 other kids he didn't see. My grandmother (his mother) told her that he was great at paying bills and keeping food in the house but he would never be faithful.
