Kierra has been really moody lately. When she is in one of her moods I remove myself from the scene and find something else to do. The other day she started complaining about her stomach hurting. Right then and there the AHA light came on and I told her that she probably would be starting her cycle soon. Sure enough the very next day The Visitor arrived. My husband and I were cheesing at her the whole day.
We were at the salon when The Visitor first appeared. I could not leave my clients to take her home to get cleaned up. So I asked Kierra if she had talked to her mom she could come and get her. Kierra had tried calling her earlier in the day but she was not answering the phone. When we couldn’t reach BM I got busy calling around to see if someone could pick her up. I finally reached my grandmother and she came to take Kierra home. In the meantime BM called Kierra back and Kierra told her what was going on.
BM is now pissed off because she was not “available” to be there when The Visitor arrived. She is not talking to Kierra, only having her oldest daughter relay messages back and forth between the two of them. She was even upset that Kierra did not go to her house. She told Kierra that our house was further away from the salon than hers. Then she suggested that she bring Kierra some things to the salon. Kierra wanted to go home to get cleaned up. I felt so sorry for Kierra. Here she is reaching womanhood and her mom is pissed because she was not there when it happened. I understand the BM being upset because she wasn’t present when The Visitor came, but my goodness. NO ONE can control mother nature. She would not speak to Kierra the rest of the day.
When I was finished at the salon, I took Kierra to Walmart to get her some things. She asked a lot of questions. We talked all through the store and she was happy I was there for her. I asked if she wanted to go see her mom for awhile. Kierra said that her mom was not speaking to her and she didn’t care if she did or not.
Later Kierra went to a party at her friend’s house. She seemed to be in good spirits given the circumstances. She said that her mom had her sister call to see if my husband was taking Kierra to register for school the next day. She still would not talk to Kierra.
The next morning her mom called to talk to her about cramps and to tell her that registration was from 2-4pm. I figured that her mom would keep Kierra for a while after registration to spend some time with her. NOT! After registration Kierra was back at home with us. I asked Kierra if she talked to her mom and she said that they only talked about school. UNBELIEVABLE!!! Like I said before no one can control mother nature. Not even the BM!!!
