Something sweet about a teenage boy who recognizes this invisible mom!
Son comes into the room and plops himself on my bed, "Mom, whats the plan tomorrow?"
I proceed with the things that have to be done...college student to work, T.V. repair guy comes, wash clothes for 1/2 the family, pack 9 people for trip to Texas, hair cuts for 6 boys, tennis, pay a few bills, and church!
His reply, "That's it?"
My reply, "THAT's it?!"
(You know we have been way too busy if he thinks that list isn't much!)
I was then glad to see his next response.
"Mom, its okay."
"That isn't much for me because I'm not doing it all like you are!"
Can I just say he made my day!
There are days I am frazzled and baffled at why the rest of the family is not slightly freaked like I am about things that need to get done. He just said it! When I list off or announce what needs to be done. They only hear the portion that applies to them.
I was thankful to hear, just one time, that this son got how busy his mom is THIS TIME!
