Several weeks back my difficult child contacted me about needing a copy of his birth certificate because he needs to get an ID. I was so not happy about the request as over the years I have given him several copies. A few years ago I gave him the last copy I had and told him so, that he needed to take care of it, put it in a safe place, you know what a responsible person would do. Anyway, after complaining to husband about it, he helped me to see that it would be a good thing to do as everyone needs a form of ID. I had to send away for it as I don't live in that state anymore. It was not cheap either. I sent difficult child a message on FB letting him know that I had received it and asked him where I could mail it to. He gave me the address of a friend. I sent it certified requiring a signature. I tracked it online so I would know when it got there. Once I had confirmation that it was delivered I thought for sure that difficult child would send a message letting me know he had received it and a thank you, I mean he was so desperate to get a copy. I waited a week because I didn't know how long it would take his friend to get it to him. I got nothing so I sent him a message saying "Have not heard from you whether or not you received the birth certificate. I checked the tracking number online and it shows it was delivered" A day later I received "ya I got it. sorry i spaced telling you"Just gives me a warm fuzzy all over!! Hope he doesn't lose this one as I will never get him another copy. I will now resume living my life.
