well, i had to share...... i made a big dinner tonight, easy child's friend came over after her nursing class and had dinner with-us, a few bumps with easy child during yet nothing too bad.... than we had cake. we were celebrating her hopefully never stealing again..... so her friend this girl i like whose a good kid straight etc. said we should take difficult child out to buy gum or something she'd be so happy. so off they went in her car. yes i'm breathing..... easy child went into stereo took difficult child's favorite cd and off they went to go buy some gum and walk through a drug store in town together. just thought it was cute, difficult child was so excited her whole face lit up. yea one of those mom moments after the last 2 mos of hell here that made me smile ear to ear.
