Nichole told Travis he has to clean his room (a disaster) in order to receive her xmas gift to him. Travis asked her why. So Nichole, trying to motivate him to clean well, says that the gift is huge, he's gonna LOVE it, but his room has to be clean or it can't be delivered. "Nichole," Travis replies," you know Mom is never gonna allow a GIRL in my room!" Both Nichole and I almost fell over laughing. It was funnier because he was serious. Unknown to Travis, Nichole has been working with boyfriend's parents. They had bought a bed for boyfriend's older brother in his senior year, brother moved away to college, wound up using the bed less than a handful of times. When Nichole heard they were going to toss this new bed in the trash because they had no use for it she asked if she could give it to Travis for xmas. Travis has been in desperate need of new mattresses for a couple of years now. I refuse to replace the ones he has because I bought them new about 5 yrs ago. But he used his bed like a chair all those years and broke the mattress down in the middle. It now has a hole he sleeps in. His gift will be delivered via sister in law tomorrow. Nichole and I can't wait til he sees it. I'm proud of Nichole for this. She's been coming a long way recently in her attitude/view of her brother and his disabilities.
