You see, it’s not only animals he sees and notices and thinks about, its people too- when we go shopping for example, things he sees get commented on as follows: “‘B’ would love that!” “Doesn’t granny collect those?” “Grampa needs those!” “We should get that for ‘T’ for Christmas*” “Doesn’t ‘A’ have a birthday soon*?” And I love how well he knows me (maybe he knows me too well?). My mom takes him shopping for Christmas, mother’s day and my birthday, and he always knows exactly what he wants for me and what I would like.
But make no mistake- he has his share of regular teenage selfish “*I want/need/must have*” episodes, he’s a regular, normal teenage boy.
And that’s ONE of the countless reasons why I love him so much!
There Is Never An Excuse
One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
