difficult child just left and we had a wonderful visit. He has matured so much! The boys had fun with him, I was about to cry. He still works in a casino, he does room service and banquet serving. He makes very good money, he has perscription and medical benefits. And he is saving( yes!!) for a new car. His truck(junk) is broken again- he wants new,not used. He has 5 grand saved for it so far. He is still with his girlfriend from Sweden. She will be moving here in July permanantly. I think the visa only let her stay temporarily before. Honestly, I thought they broke up when difficult child went to visit her there last year and wouldn't work there either. He is so different. He brought me a box of candy! He said they didn't have flowers at the store. I am happy things are going so well for him.-Alyssa.

How old is difficult child, Alyssa? Your signature doesn't say.

It sounds like he is making some adult decisions. I'm so glad that you had a good visit. That's wonderful!

<span style='font-size: 14pt'> <span style='font-family: Georgia'> <span style="color: #006600"> wow! it really sounds like he's on the road to maturity. holding down a job...banquet work is tough, in a steady relationship, saving money....and best of all he we was kind to his mom & good to the bros. obviously you made the right decision inviting him home for easter.

i'm really happy for you. hopefully you can start to build on this.

I am so happy for you that you had a nice time. Glad to hear he's doing well. Will you see him again soon? Sounds like maybe it's time to start a new relationship with the new and improved difficult child.

That's wonderful ~ am I right in thinking that might have been some of the best tasting candy you ever received as a gift?!?

Good for difficult child ~ he must have felt like such a good, gentle man when he behaved toward his family in that way.

That's fantastic! You must have thrilled that he thought to bring something for you! I hope you have many more visits like that!!
