Today for the 1st time, difficult child went to the grocery store with-me and loaded all the groceries in the trunk by himself with-o my asking him! Wow! (Anyone else who sees this would think it's no big deal but you all know what milestones these things are.) Also, easy child has a nasty staph infection on her leg which is antibiotic resistant (MRSA--and we have no idea how she got it but it looks like she won't be able to finish out the summer as a lifeguard) and we went out to lunch after her follow-up dr. appointment. difficult child helped her with-her crutches and was very gentle with-her. We gave her some pain pills (poor thing ... the doctors always squeeze the infection to drain it and it's SO painful!) and she fell asleep in the car with-her head in difficult child's lap. He smiled all the way home and thought it was very amusing. As usual, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I'm reveling in good mojo in the meantime. Oh, and please rattle a few beads for easy child ... we're still waiting for the culture to come back from the lab.
