Lil’ Mendeecees may have to drop that “lil” really soon. Over the weekend, the son of Samantha and Mendeecees celebrated his birthday, and his dad penned a beautiful message for him and had it posted on the ’gram along with the most adorable photos. (Swipe)
In the note, Mendeecees tells his eldest son how much he changed his life. He wrote,
To say Happy Birthday to you son, Makes me evaluate what this day really means, the day I became a father, All the promises I secretly made to you. All the expectations I had for you, for me, for us.
Having children has changed my perspective in life, for myself as a person, as a man
but it all started with you.
You were the first person,
the first out of body experience I had.
The first separate human I really loved, you took selfish and made it selfless, you took me and replaced it with you, you took Mendeecess and made it ‘Jr. Everyday away from you hurts, but it makes me happy to know I’m a day closer to holding you in my arms again. This distance between us, has grown me as a man, as a father and I can’t promise you everything, but I can promise you this, for the rest of your life, I’ll never be further than a phone call and an open welcoming arm away from you. I can’t promise you a peaceful life, but Son, I can promise you I’ll make life as perfect as I can for you. I can’t promise you a pain free life, and that you won’t have hurts, but I can promise you that I’ll shield you from every hurt I can and teach you how to deal with the ones you must deal with. And if I could give you my life, you would understand how you gave me mine, If I could give you my eyes, you would see how proud I am of you.
If I could give you my heart,
you would feel how much I love you. If I could give you my spirit, you would know how much strength you give me to keep going. You’re the first person I felt unconditional love for, you’re the first person that made me want to wake up in the morning and not be the same person anymore,
You’re the first person that made me want to work harder so your life would be better,
You’re the first person I knew was watching me so I had to be my best, you’re the first person I learned my actions and their consequences will hurt the people I love the most. So because of you and now your brothers and sister I have become a better man. I wish I could talk to you and tell you these things and so much more. But to my first love, my namesake, my legacy, little Mendeecees…I love you. Happy Birthday ? (? he sees this?)
We’re hoping that the ” ? he sees this?” doesn’t mean that things are still a bit rocky between Samantha and Mendeecees as we seen in season seven of Love & Hip Hop. Samantha also shared a video montage of her son sealed with a passionate caption.
Having a great son like you is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to my life. I will forever be proud of you, best birthday my dear son! #happybirthday2017 #librababy??????
He is growing into a spitting image of his father! Happy birthday Lil’ Mendeecees!
