Not a good day of eating had birthday cake and chinese and at 738 my son came to me that's the time

Monday, September 09, 2013

Well today wasn't a good day for eating, I baked my son a cake which he didn't realize till he opened the fridge and saw it and said wow mom thanks I really appreciate that I know you've been hurting.
And for dinner we scraped up some money (hubby stash from his returning cans) and got something my son has been craving chinese, I have to be careful when I eat that because it affects the fibro.
We got order of chicken fingers and large pork fried rice, I was already hurting so it didn't seem to do any extra damage accept to my calorie intake emoticon .
He was surprised when his dad came home with the chinese, we didn't get a lot so it didn't cost a lot but my son was so grateful. He really appreciates everything because he knows we're struggling and we made it special for him with just the little things.
We sat down and ate as we watched a movie he wanted to see and then hubby got called in early and at 738 the time he was born my son came up to me and gave me a kiss and I said happy birthday now your really 17yrs old!!!!!!!!!!!! He gave me a big hug and of course I had tears in my eyes, cause I'm just a big ole softy.
We gave him a card with a few bucks in it and he was shocked he got a little something cause we had bought him a few things for his party.
His aunts called him to wish him a happy birthday, one sent a card with 20 dollars in it (she is the one that had given him a 100 dollars for his desk, my hubby sent her a picture of his desk the other day and she was shocked that he really got one) I think that's why she sent him a little extra cause she see's he's real and down to earth and has his head on straight.
I was disappointed that my father didn't at least try to call him, after all my son did nothing he was innocent...... but why would he change now?
All in all he had a nice day, I'm glad he appreciates the little things this is exactly how I wanted my child to be cause that's how my husband and I were as kids and to bring that out in a child these days is so difficult but we did it.
I'm so proud of me that I broke the mold of how I was treated and I'm so glad that I didn't become the mother I had, I knew in my heart I wanted no part of that kind of parenting.
We have a good relationship as parents with our son, he knows we're not his friend, we're his LOVING parents and have always had his back......
Even the weather was nice for him which I'm grateful for thank you god!
