Enter the children…..

Let’s talk about children, I have five of them did you know that? I have many reasons to talk about my children some are good and some are bad so I will start with the youngest and go right up to the oldest.

Thomas McKenzie Dylan Kline, we have heard about little Mr. Kline on several occasions. We know that he has ADHD and ADD and well life has handed him a pretty shitty hand right now, he is in the middle of having a mentally challenged father and a very sick mother. That in itself would knock any normal child off his rocker, but Dylan is a trooper and helps not only me but his mother as well. I can also see some mental problems developing in him, such as depression, and probably some co-dependency for his mother. As his father I am the stern one, the ass whooper, the grab him and wrap him in a bear hug and tell him I love him father. Him I understand.

Tiffany Danielle Jones, is my step daughter who at fourteen decided to go and live with her father for no other reason  than she wanted to go, and as of yet she has not explained the sudden departure from our family and I don’t think she will due to it being selfish reasoning on her part. Now since she has left we have seen her, probably a total of three weeks, she is now sixteen. I never hear from her, where as when she lived with us she and I constantly talked about everything. See my confusion? Now Gerri says that she texts and talks to Tiffany over the phone and on face book, if she really cared about her mother she would come and see her more often, I mean the woman is sick for fucks sake, she don’t care and don’t tell me that she has a lot to do if she cared she would make time. The one good thing that Tiffany has is that she is extremely smart, beautiful, and talented and she make my heart melt every time I see her. And all the bad just goes away. What can I say she had me wrapped around her little finger when she was but just two years old?

William Spenser David Kline, well there is nothing good or bad that I can say of my middle child I have not seen him since he was four and currently do not know where he lives.

Michael Lynn Jones Jr., well here we go this boy is as smart as they come, when he was growing up he wanted to be an Architect, he would make drawings of buildings and houses and such. He swore he would never smoke, or do drugs. Look at him now, had a chance at college blew it off and decided to go to work for Zappos, ok he had a job but lost it because he went home with a hangover, he smokes pot, which was the very evil when he was a kid even up into his teens. What happened Michael, how did you turn out like Ramon (my half brother that is a pot head, can’t hold a job and mooches off everybody). When Michael does come around he does talk to his mother when she is awake, but it is usually when he needs something.

Daniel Ryan Shipley Kline, the oldest and the one we would have thought would have turned out like Ramon, but to my great surprise he is doing better than I ever expected, he is an apprentice millwright, and a bouncer, he has got the build and temperament for that 6’-5” tall and weighs in at around 250lbs. but see he is doing it he has a good job and a future. He live in Louisiana and well he calls more just to say hi than the others, he does ask about Gerri and even talks to her when he is not on break at his job or when he is bouncing.

So what happened to my children where did I go wrong, did I not give them everything that I could, did I not try my best to teach them right from wrong, Michael and Daniel are grown men they are living the lives that they want to give, but couldn’t they have done better, probably but they will have to find that out on their own, that whole walk a mile in my shoes thing. Tiffany is the worst one for me, she never calls doesn’t chat with me on face book or send me an email, and as far as that goes the only time I hear from Michael is when he wants money from me or his grandmother or needs something. These are some of the bad things that have been happening from my children and there are good things also but I am not in the mood to tell you about that because the things I have written about are the things on my mind, and you know what started the whole thing, Christmas my wife wanted to know if I would get the rest of my money before Christmas, because they will come, with hand out and expect to get either presents or money. All I keep thinking is when did it all fall apart. I love my children with all my heart and give them all that I can, if I didn’t do something right then all I can do is say I am sorry, but everyone of you all need to stop and take a look around cause we won’t always be around to bail you out, to give advice, to miss each and every one of you, you are out in the world and you are making your own paths in life but remember to do your checks and balances on yourself and ask yourself is this the best that I can be doing for myself. I do love all of you and miss being together as a family.

With much gratitude and devotion,

Dan Kline


One Response to “Enter the children…..”

  1. Your children love and appreciate you even if it doesn’t seem like it because some of them only call you for things they need or don’t call you at all. But when they grow up a little more and they look around at people who had parents that didn’t give a crap about them they’re going to thank you for always being there. You did all that you could for them and even now you’re still doing all you can to teach them about values. When you teach your children right from wrong sometimes it can get all washed up when the outside world casts its influences on them. But they’ll be alright. Sometimes the bad has to get in before you can truly distinguish it from the good and they’ll learn at one point or another that everything you’ve taught them and done for them were the acts of a brave and loving father
