Don’t worry baby, we’ll be just fine. I know your daddy left us, but we can make it — the two of us — together.
We’re better off without him, baby. He’s a real piece of shit. He left me — he left us — before you were born, and you are the best thing that ever happened to me.
We’ve got my mom and dad — your Grammy and Pop Pop — and all of my good friends. They’re here for us. They’ll be around to help out if we need it.
I promise you, sweetie, I’ve got you. You have nothing to fear. We’re in this together and we’re going to be great.
