Happy Birthday @onlyzion_ I can’t believe my Nugget is the Big 18th🎉 all week you have been reminding me that you’re about to be Legal and it only made me sad! Where did the time go Poo? You grew up to be such a Beautiful Young Lady. I remember the day my water broke-OMG!! It was the scariest feeling in the world. We lived in Winston Salem at the time and Papa Joe had left the house for a second and so I called the ambulance. Zi, I was terrified because I was so young and I wanted to give you the world but I didn’t know how I was going to do it. You came a lil early and at the time I was thinking it was because you were either nosey (lol) or you heard all my cry’s and felt you needed to come on out and protect me. Now I see it was the protection part and still to this day you go hard for Mommy! I’ll never forget when we had our own lil apartment, just me and you in Farmington. I’ll never forget when you stuck a bead up your nose and came running to me scared. I’ll never forget I had just dressed you so pretty in some fresh white Reebok Classics and you went and stood in the Toilet. Man!! I have so many stories🤗❤️😂 last one Zion, after IDOL ( We had a Dog named Diva) and Zion would hit her from time to time, she was 3 years old, and Diva would always get her butt right back. When she did, Zion would run in the room crying, “Diva Said, Diva Said”. I told her DIVA CANT TALK ZION!! 😂 (she swore up and down she could) I Miss those days but I’m So Proud Of the young Lady you’ve become. August 8-8-01 was a Perfect Day🎂🎈🎉🤗 Now I want you to Go be Great for Mama and know I’ll move Many Mountains For You Baby Girl👊🏾 it’s a Real Ones Birthday Help me celebrate the one who changed my Life @onlyzion_
At the end of the post, Barrino made it known that she was grateful for how her daughter turned out.
