On his feet again
In our last post we found mom humble, weak and feeling defeated... It might get worse...
The freaking shoes broke!!!!! Yes, the shoes I finally found after my desperate shopping search (see last post) bit the dust before I picked him up from school.
I am Mom. Hear me be seriously annoyed.
"I'm sorry I caused so much trouble, Mom," Jack says on the way out of school.
"You're not trouble. It's just the way things go sometimes." I couldn't help but let the frustration seep out. "I thought I was doing something really great for you."
"You did do something really great. Thank you."
I am Mom. Hear my heart swell with love and pride.
Today, Jack is wearing the newest, whitest pair of Chuck Taylor's available.
