the last time I posted was the day we had ‘the talk’ with Max. Not the birds/bees, but Santa! He’d asked me a month or so ago if the Easter Bunny really gave candy to all the kids in the world, or did parents just do that? I asked him what he thought and we talked a bit, and Santa’s name came up. Then it was time to get out of the truck so I kinda ended the conversation. He asked again a few weeks later with about the same results. I texted Tj at work and told him that that night at supper (he was working late that night) I was going to explain it all to Max. Tj said he wished he could be there, and I really wanted this to be something we did together. Since he had the following Wednesday off we all went out to eat at Dixie Cafe and had ‘the talk’. He took it really well…I think he really knew. We made sure to tell him not to be the one telling his friends about it because their families would handle that with them. Tj made sure to mention that St. Nicholas was trying to please God with what he did, and so when we carry on this tradition we’re also pleasing to God. I thought that was a pretty good connection.
This morning I was playing Pie Jesu by Sarah Brightman while Jack was eating breakfast, I looked over at him and he had tears streaming down his face! I think that song was too sad for him! Poor, sweet baby!
Grandmom’s coming into town today and it’s J’s last day of Wee Care plus his WC finale. We have a lot going on so I’d better wrap this up.
