Guess who's home for a visit?
It's good to have him around for a few days. To hear his stories and see how he's doing and . . . well. . . take care of him again!
College suits him. He's having a great time and managing well in a new environment. But it's still nice to be able to spoil him a little bit! You know. . . doing his laundry. . .
"re-stocking" his stuff . . .
cooking his favorite meals!
He'll be around 'til Tuesday. I didn't realize how much I missed him. . .
until he came back home!
Actual shopping experience: Brian and I went to the mall to get him some new jeans, etc. At one store, we saw a mom and her absolutely miserable, eye-rolling son. The kid looked like he was in typical middle school agony. . . you know, shopping IN PUBLIC with his mom. He was skulking about, trying to look cool and not-in-any-way-WITH-his-mother. Behind us in line to check out, Brian overheard the mom say, "See? HE shops with his mom!" (Meaning. . . Brian.) Brian got such a kick out of it! I wanted to turn to the beleagured mom and assure her that . . . it'll be okay again. . . once he turns 18. . . just hang in there!
