    difficult child quit his job today---but he had another in place before doing it. He has been talking to his old job from last summer, and they have been asking him to come back. He has been at his current job for 6 months and has been given additional responsibilities but not additional pay---he has asked and been told he had to wait his turn. He says others who do not work have gotten raises. So, when old restaurant kept calling, he negotiated the salary it would take, and they told him okay. He goes for orientation tomorrow and starts this weekend. Not bad for a young who hardly worked at all the previous 3 years.

    See THIS is the part that gets me -

    They ARE BRILLIANT......yet play difficult child all those years and then go do something fantastical like this - that just makes you KNOW you weren't crazy and that they really DO have smarty smarts.

    Congrats - you must be beaming!
