I am no longer a boy

March 26, 2018


At the age of 7, I now have the responsibility of the world on my shoulders. My mother and father divorced and I was now on the way to a man and haven't realized it. Myself, my 2 siblings and my mother would move to the country and live with our grandmother and great-grandmother. Once we arrived I instantly had responsibilities of a man. Cut the grass, take out the trash, rake the leaves, look after my other 2 siblings, and also be a translator for my mom and grandma. So my mother, grandmother, and young brother are all deaf. For a 7-year-old, I had to deal with translating for the simplest things we don't think about like going through the checkout line at a grocery store, ordering food, and dealing with bill collectors. So you can say I was exposed to a lot at such a young age, but going through all of this growing up I would have never thought it would impact me today. Today as a man with my very own family, I look back and see how my younger years with all that responsibility made me who I am today. I am very involved in both my daughters' lives and I am the head of my household by providing for my family and taking care of my household. I may do a lot and sometimes overdo things that the average man would not do for example; clean, cook, do laundry, and help do my daughters hair. But, it is something that I will not complain about because as a man you should not just be the provider, you should be the supporter, motivator, and the lead in your household.
