Looking back on 2019

I plan to write up a year in review later this month. It’s probably going to take me a full 3 weeks to get it done. I’ve had an incredible year and I love to look back to see how far I’ve come.

How is everyone doing? How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was pretty good. We had a few small issues but everything worked out well. We ALL ATE TOO MUCH! The food this year was mostly catered. I had a few homemade dishes that my family and friends demand we have each year. I did not invite my Aunt and Uncle but I did invite my cousins. I did not want them to toxic up the holiday with the annoying fighting nonstop. I didn’t want to spend the whole time referring them. Their separation/pending divorce is not very amicable. I loved my divorce. It was over waaayy faster than I expected and once I signed the final papers, I felt freed! It was a good life decision. I’m still friends (Sorta) with my ex-wife and I have now made a new life for myself. It’s going well.

I just uploaded a bunch of photos to our Family Facebook page for you guys. Go check it out!

2017 Year in Review – No

Merry Christmas everyone! We are wrapping up our Christmas eve things and getting the kids in bed so that we can attend the midnight mass at Church. We finally agreed to find a new Church and after much discussion and me telling her this is the Church for us, she gave up Lol To all the guys out there, I finally won an argument! Mark that down somewhere. That never happens. She said she trusts my judgement and didn’t want to keep stressing both of us out over something we both need to be supportive of. She also said if she hates it we aren’t going back Lol She also said if we don’t go back she’s going to call me a few names and find the right Church for us. That figures.

We all got to open 1 present each. The boys have been playing with their firetrucks all day. Peace threw her new handle toy thing around but only cared about the wrapping paper. My dog has been slinging his new snake rope toy around like crazy. The cat looked at her dragonfly toy and could give 2 sh**s Lol My wife LOVED the new perfume I found for her in Dubai. I am rocking my new sweater since it makes me look sexy and very Christmasy. We are all having the best time.

I would love to sit here for a few hours and recap how my 2017 went but you can literally read about almost all that happened on here. Hit the month you want to start at and go down the aisle I guess. I don’t have time to do the recap. My wife is a billion months pregnant and in constant need of my attention when my kids aren’t in need of me.

I can say I have had the best year of my life. If you had asked me 3 years ago would I be married with kids, NO. I just didn’t see much of a future after my very public affair.

I can tell how much I have grown and I still stand in the truth that there never was a catfish of Meri Brown. There was ONLY an affair and you are finally going to start seeing the truth on that stupid show. Their marriage was sh**, is sh**, and will not heal. The reason for that is Kody has read my blog, listened to the voicemails, and read my book. He now has the same information I had. He said at first “no fault” on her part at all. Now that he is more informed of the full situation he doesn’t want her anymore. He loves her and will always love her, but he’s not in love with her anymore. That is largely due to the lies she has told him and everyone. It also is because she still plays victim. She has done it with him for years, she did it with me, and she continues to play victim with all of you viewers. She has never owned up to the affair. She admitted to lying to avoid fighting with him. She admits that we had a love relationship, she even briefly admitted we had a great time and laughed. Then she realized if she told the REAL truth about our affair she would lose everything. She has NO WHERE TO GO. That’s why she stays. She’s not there helping raise kids. She’s not there because she’s in love with her husband. Meri stays in that awful marriage because since she was 19 years old this is all she knows. She is a part of that family and she does want that. She just has no way out. Think about it. She is legally divorced and got NO ASSETS in the divorce. The house is still in both her and Kody’s names. She is still providing money to her daughter’s living expenses, and continues to try to make money on the side wearing clown outfits and going around the country selling things to other clown outfit fans. She looks ridiculous in that stuff. Yes she is fully covered up but one of the things she told me is she couldn’t wait to be able to wear anything she wants. Hey, whatever got her out of all of that denim, I guess, right? She is an almost 47-year-old woman with a failed marriage and she continues to be selfish. She is very needy, she has no sense of self and if you really know her like I do, you can see her Pinterest quotes that get tweeted are all FOR ATTENTION. It’s not to empower herself or others. It’s to make people say Whhhhhhatttttt??? Meri are you okay???? And then the comments follow and her ego is fed. There is a lot of emotional trauma she has been through and none of it was with me. We broke up. I left her alone. She started harassing me, I stood up for myself. End of story. The truth will be coming out. You will see that Kody NEVER forgave her for the affair. He NEVER believed her story because according to her all we did was “talk on the phone and text on Twitter and cellphones”. If that was true why didn’t she block my number? Or how about this? Hang up the phone! She didn’t because she was in love with me and she lied about our affair. She wanted me. She just didn’t know how to leave.

She is going to leave some day because God help me something in her brain will trigger the exact response she should have had yeeeaaaarrrrsss ago. She married a douchebag that traded her in 3 different times for someone new. That has got to cause so much emotional damage I don’t even know what to say about that. They are not doing this multiple partner lifestyle because of their religious beliefs. They don’t even have a Church anymore. The few times we have seen the “Church” service it was in their own home and no one paid attention. They are doing this because Kody has convinced some very naive, helpless, rundown women that he can provide a better life for them. It’s about sex, and providing him with income. He is a cult leader and the more you step back to really see what’s going on the more you feel disgusted. I’m glad to be out of that mess. Lindsay had told Meri that Mariah was gay. I asked her if she was a few times and she said no she just concentrates on school and hangs out with her friends. Sorry but if a girl has never been on a date with a boy or EVER had a boyfriend all through middle school, high school, and college something is up. She was blindsided but not really. We told her. She just didn’t believe us. I think it’s very cool and I hope all of the best for her. She is a very sharp girl and I was happy to get to know her the little bit that I did.

I appreciate all of the support I have gotten. Yes I know that stupid show is coming back on. You won’t see anything new. It’s the exact same thing and that’s why they reduced it down to a few episodes and to air once a year. Their ads are down, they can’t come up with any new exciting storylines. This is all they have left. One hand gripping the cash and the other flipping off their own viewers.

I wish I made that up but it is all true.

I have grown up so much in the past 3 years. I am exactly with the right woman, creating a family and building my next chapter. My life is perfect. I am officially done working until I figure out what I want to do next. I still have no idea at all.

I pray everyday that everyone that reads my blog is healthy, happy, and living the best life they can. Even my haters. Very few people these days harass me. The ones that still cling to their made up version of my life are losers and have no business commenting on anything. Look at their lives. What have they accomplished in a year? The got blocked by me and spent the next 11 months calling me names, saying I’m a girl, and embarrassing themselves? Lol That’s a waste of your life.

I’m happy. I’m not going anywhere. My proof and truth are RIGHT HERE. I answer any nice question I can and love meeting the people who are interested in my book. I have made a ton of real friends from all of this mess. I have kept my old friends and we have had the best vacations together. I very much look forward to the birth of my son Talon in late January. I can’t believe my boys are almost 2. I can’t believe I have a daughter! My dog is healthy and awesome. Life in Paris is going to be an adventure. My life turned out great.

So Merry Christmas Batfans! I’m so happy you are here. Here’s to another great year together. My 2018 is going to be Batastic!

I love you guys very much and I hope you get all of your Christmas dreams! May God bless each of your families and bring you all closer together this year.

You all deserve the best!

Love, The Samuel Cooper Family

P.S. Santa is going to be extra generous to my kids this year. Lindsay must have bribed him Lol

Ho HO HOOOOOOO Meerrrrryyyyyy Christmas!

Christmas Busy

I’m sorry I haven’t updated much lately. Here’s why…

 

With my wife being in Paris growing our son Talon to perfection and living her dream life I’m here working, taking care of the kids and trying to stay sane. Things are so busy with Christmas, year-end work things, and trying to prepare to move. I’m overwhelmed. I have gotten and now read all of your messages. Thank you for the well wishes. I’ve just been really busy, guys.

Alex had a cold he’s much better now. Thankfully Heston and Peace did not get it. I think it was because Sarah sequestered herself up with Alex for a few days. We barely saw them peek out of their side of the house. My condos are NOW for sale in a pocket listing and I have 4 offers. I had no idea this would go that fast. My wife said go for it so I’m finally allowed to sell them off. I’m mulling the offers today and I will decide by tonight which one to take. I love multiple offers when I’m selling buildings. It makes the price go up and up. I don’t like it when I’m one of the bidders Lol

Work is great. Very busy trying to wrap up my 10 years at SJC. I’m over 30 years at my construction company and 20 at my gas stations and mall investments. I am still going to be HALF owner of all of it. I just will be the silent partner now. Lindsay is taking it all over. She has a new team working hard and she trusts them. It also helps that SHE is the only one allowed to make financial decisions which means she has to stay in contact with all of the businesses daily. She loves it. She said this is her new dream job because she is always busy and she never has a dull day. Plus she gets to travel all over the place and not pay for it Lol Nice to have a corporate credit card.

The kids are all doing great. My wife hit the 34 week mark! Well 34 weeks and 1 day technically. That means we have 5 weeks and 6 days until her due date. I just need him to stay in there until I get there in early January Lol Once I move over and am settled in he can come see us anytime he wants.

With Talon I’m actually not that nervous. I’m really excited. I talk to him as much as I can and I let him know how much we love him already. I can’t wait to see his beautiful little face and count the fingers and toes. As soon as she goes into labor Drew and Lindz will be making their way to us with her parents and a few of her siblings. The ones that can take off a few days from work will come and we will be sending videos and photos as often as we can.

Yes I FINALLY uploaded photos from all of the things we have been doing. Yes that’s our Christmas tree this year Lol It’s in Paris and it’s HUGE. My wife decided since we have 12 foot ceilings, go big or go home. I think that’s really funny. Her and Brandi spent a long time deciding the theme and I think it looks great. Yes that’s also a lot of presents but we have a large family now. Everyone is spoiled rotten by my wife so that’s why the gifts are pretty much filling up half of our living room. I always said I wouldn’t turn into that parent but look at me now. My wife went nuts which made me feel competitive and now our kids will have way too many toys Lol Oh well. We will do better next time. I hope.

We are also actively trying to figure out the boys’ birthday party theme. Yes it’s close to that time already. 2 years old. Can you guys believe it! It is flying by. As soon as Talon is born we are done having kids for a few years. I’ve already been told several times we need to slow down a little. My wife wants to get her body back in shape and just enjoy the kids we have. We do not have plans to adopt anymore kids until 2020. We both agreed that’s a good time to start talking about adopting again. We do want to adopt one more child. A little girl, again. We are very interested in adopting an non-white child we can. I think having a variety will make us all better people. I really enjoy having Peace in our lives. She is so beautiful and is growing up with a happy home life. She smiles all of the time. I can’t believe my baby girl is so big now. 5 months old guys! Wow. The time is just flying by. She is sitting up, she has the sweetest light laugh you have ever heard, and she has a whole bunch of black hair. We had to trim it already because it was crazy. We put little bows but she gets mad so we don’t do that very often. The boys help out so much and it helps now that she’s sleeping almost all the way through the night. I am really enjoying that part.

My kids are happy, we are moving to Paris soon and we will be living our best lives so far. I can’t wait.

I miss my wife so bad. She needs to be there and I know that but I just miss her. She loves to snuggle in the morning, she also fills the house with laughter. I do everything I can to make her giggle or laugh every day. She loves it. She misses me too which makes me feel really good. We are having the best time. I’m so happy I married her. I couldn’t imagine my life without this woman. She is everything I was looking for and nothing I expected. She does not let me get away with anything. We have slowly been building a trust that has not been broken. She knows all of my bad decisions from the past are completely over with. I am dedicated to my family and no one will tear us apart. Not that a few haven’t tried. My goodness the women from my past really need to let me go. I know we had fun, I know we laughed and had good times but that’s not my life now. I just want to move far away from all of that and keep going forward with my wife and kids. They are #1. They deserve my full attention. I’ve tried to be gracious but there comes a point when my wife is getting really pissed off and starting to blame me for them leaving voicemails or text. It has been hard to deal with in moments.

If your life isn’t the best or you are not happy, move on. That’s what I did. It’s hard. It’s really hard at first until you realize you can deal with things all alone. You can figure out what happened and why. Then you laugh and think boy was that really stupid and I put up with way too much crap. I should have known better.

I’m finally mature enough to know that. It has taken 42 years to get there but it hit me like a big bag of bricks. My life is my life. I am in charge. I make choices. I’m happy. Right now in this very moment I have everyone and everything I need. If you can’t support that or you are jealous of that, sorry. You don’t get my attention anymore. You phone games and passive aggressive “I need your help” texts have no effect. I know you want my attention (2 specific ladies I mean here) but you don’t get it. My wife and I have decided that I do not need to communicate with you anymore. In order for her to fully trust me I finally cut you 2 off. I had to. We can’t be friends especially with both of you still claiming to be “in love” with me.  Well I’m not in love with either of you and haven’t been for years. I love my wife. I love my gorgeous, happy, perfect, pregnant wife. I hope that’s clear for you. I do wish you all of my best and I pray you will get out of your miserable situations but until you feel like you deserve better you are going to stay stuck. You don’t have to, but you will. I’m free of all of that. My past is miles away from me and I am keeping it that way. My wife and I know that causes problem in our marriage and she was very open and honest about her feelings of jealous of you 2 still being friends. That’s why you are out of my life. I’ve said all of this at least a dozen times but now I’m publically saying, STOP. I am okay. You don’t need to check on me anymore. My wife is all I want. She loves me more than either of you ever did. The things you don’t want me to publically say, I still haven’t. I have kept your secrets about your relationships. I know to keep them this time. Good luck, God bless, Bye Felicia.

Enough of that. I need to start my work day here.

Everyone have a great weekend. We are going to be at home trying to get things ready to move. We are taking the boys swimming tonight. I promised to take them a few days ago and didn’t. Alex is better and I think he would really enjoy a hot swim. It will make him feel better I think. I will update more as soon as I can. Sorry for the rant but I am trying to wrap up all of my American loose ends Lol And let’s face it you guys love hearing the behind the scenes part of my life.

Isn’t is fun being a Batfan? Lol Love ya’ll!

Pulse Nightclub – 1 Year ago Today

  I copied this from wiki:

Pulse was a gay bar, dance club, and nightclub in Orlando, Florida, founded in 2004 by Barbara Poma and Ron Legler. On June 12, 2016, the club gained international attention as it was the scene of the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in U.S. history, and the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the events of September 11, 2001. Forty-nine people were killed and 53 were injured. There are plans to convert the premises into a memorial dedicated to the victims.

I want to honor those who lost their lives to this senseless violence. It was such a horrible thing to do to innocent people. I have always publically supported the gay community and will never stop getting their messages of love and hope out. They were just having a good time at the club. It makes no sense why someone thinks they can do so much harm. What reason does anyone have to hurt this many people?

I prayed for all of them and their families. May God bless their souls. We all love you and miss you. I’m sorry for their loss.

Year 1: An Open Letter to my Sons

This is how our journey began:

http://www.notbatmanyet.com/2016/02/are-you-ready-for-this-kind-of/

I go back and read that post often. To see if I’m keeping all of my promises.

Dear Heston and Alex,

Today is your very first birthday and I can not wait to spend this entire day with both of you. It is 5:30am and I could not bare to sleep anymore. I am so excited for your special day.

Since I found out you both existed I knew that God was leading you into my arms. All that I had worked for, all that I had wanted in my life has always been for you. I said “I will take them” and those 4 words changed my life more than I have ever known.

As you have grown the last year I have documented all of your big and small moments both with the camera and with memory. Your baby books are filling up fast. They don’t mean anything to you right now but someday they will. We will sit on the couch together and laugh at all of the things I found so very important from last year.

I promised your birth mom to protect you both with my life, to love you and make you into good people, good men. I’m still working on that. You have meant more to me than I can ever find the words for. Your distinct personalities have been such a surprise to me as well as how much you two look exactly alike. I have always tried to treat you both equally and with compassion. I love you Heston as much as I love you Alex. You are the light in my life. You are my entire world. Everything I thought I knew wasn’t nearly enough before you came into my life.

Because of you boys I am a brand new man. Today we celebrate your 1st birthday. And your step-mom and I get the honor of showing you both off with such pride and honor. We all get to look back at your first birthday photos later on in life but today, I just want to focus on your wants and needs. Your happiness means everything. Keeping you safe and healthy has been equal to making sure you are having fun and learning new things daily. Your nannies, Sarah, Brandi, and Heather love you as much as I wanted them to. They have helped me every single day and have been there for both of you through everything. They are my tribe. And I could not have raised you through Year 1 without you.

I pray you have a wonderful day. Daddy has done all I can to make it a fun and happy day. I hope you have a great time with your enormous, loving family. Daddy wants that foundation to always be a priority for all of your lives. I need you both to know how much I love you. Daddy will always give you both my last piece of food if you want it. And that’s saying a lot because as you know Daddy doesn’t share food!

I love you Heston.

I love you Alex.

May God bless you both with 100 plus more years of this amazing life we are all building together.

Love,

Daddy
