I was just remembering something very sweet, I mean manly, *wink* ;-) thoughtful, yea, I mean thoughtful, that’s a good description of what Wesley did this weekend.
We had told him that we were still going to buy Andrew things that he would like for his room. SO he came over Sat after going to an arcade kind of place. With his tickets he won he got Andrew a Laughing Buddha statue that he knew Andrew would like. How swee…I mean thoughtful is that???
So we put it up by his urn next to the Buddha statue we got him for his 16th birthday. Andrew may not have had a bunch of friends here but the ones he had are very special! They accepted him for who he is! And Andrew loved them for who they are too!
We are so blessed that his friends still want to hang with us! It’s feels so good to have them around! Hmmm I must be the Kool Aide Mom!!!! :-D Elatia reminded me too recently how much her friends loved being around us! Even tho we were devil incarnate according to her when she was a teen! LOL Ok, it was pretty much me that was the D.I. I always played the bad cop because I was so good at it and Martin was better at the good cop. Which is why I had the night shift at the hospital too. I know there were some Dr.s wanting to perform an exorcism on me! LOL We go with our strengths! :-D
Altho we did switch rolls with Andrew in the hospital. If Andrew needed to do something like, drink more gluteamine, or get up & move around or swallow something and he didn’t want to, I said “OK Sweet heart you don’t have to!” Sooooo out of character for me! Martin was actually the hard ass with Andrew and NOT me! YAY!! It was so cool getting to be the good cop with one of my kids for a change! I fell into that roll amazingly well! Even surprised me! I didn’t want my baby doing anything he didn’t want to! Martin even had a talk with me that he would be the hard ass with Andrew so I wouldn’t have to be. DO I have the best husband or what?? For once I just couldn’t step up and be the hard ass and do the right thing! A Wise One being a totally Incarnated Angel! AND an EleMENTAL following the rules! Who Knew?? It’s all about balance!
IT’S ALL GOOD!
