I then laughed and said, “Good night, kidda.”
He then said, “Her name...

- My family and I recently moved into this large Victorian house in Birmingham a few months ago. I really like the house, but ever since moving in my 8 year old son has been acting really strange lately. He says that we’re not the house owners and the first time he said it I dismissed it, but the second time he said it I asked him why and he then said, “The girl, Dad.” I then responded with, “What girl, Ben?” Ben looked up at me and said, “The one you walked past earlier, dad.

- Before my cousin died, I barely saw my family from my mom’s side. I saw them maybe 6 times a year at most, which was during the holidays. This was quite unusual, considering how small of an island Maui is and how close we all were as we were growing up. You would think we would end up running into each other out at the store or maybe even at a relative’s house but this was not the case. When I was younger (age 3 to around age 9), my sisters and I used to spend every single day afterschool at my grandma’s house with my cousins.... [tags: Family, Sibling, Prince, Paisley Park Records]
