Wow.

My sweetie is in Florida this week for work, and I miss him sorely. Luckily, he's scheduled to be back Friday afternoon. I can't wait.

So last night I am driving back from work when my cell phone rings. It is el Brato.

"Mom," he says. "Are you on your way home?"

"Yes, sweetie," I say. "I should be there in about 20 minutes."

"Uh, okay. Would you like me to fix you a sandwich?"

"Hmmm, actually, can you slice the grilled chicken that's in the fridge so I can make some tacos?"

"Sure thing!"

I get home and, sure enough, my kid had sliced the chicken and everything was ready for me to fix dinner. He had already eaten, so it was only for me.

"Wow," I tell him. "Thank you very much for doing this for me. I really appreciate it."

"No prob," he says. "I figured that you would come home tired from work, an Bob is not here. So why not?"

I am really tickled by that. He's so sweet, and he's matured so much.

I love my kids. I really do.

That is so sweet!

BTW: Last night we were watching Mamma Mia, and Den says "Meryl Streep's charecter in this film reminds me of someone.. A Scadian.." "Belfebe??" "YES!"

Awesome! There's hope yet for my boys! And how many times did I have to remind them yesterday to take out the trash and change the cat boxes before anyone showed up for fighter practice last night?

I'm telling you. They grow up. And then it nearly gave me a heart attack.

I love it when the years of hollering at them about whatever pays off and something like this happens. It makes you feel as if it wasn't in vain and that at some point they were actually listening! ;-p

For real! Either that or they were abducted by aliens and replaced with pod people. Either way it works!
