My son & his dad are going on a fishing/boating trip tomorrow. J paid for both of them with his own money! This is curious on so many levels, let us touch on just a few.
- Curiosity number 1…J has a job AND money! As we all know, addicts have almost no money. J has money in the bank, has begun to pay his father back and will start paying his fines this week. He has come through for his brothers and sisters when they needed a few dollars here or there too…he would NEVER have done that in full addict mode. In addict mode his money was his but everyone else’s was up for grabs.
- Curiosity number 2…My husband said “Yes, J I would love to go on this trip with you!” I fell smack onto the floor (well not really but I did gasp).
Can he finally be growing up? Can I get excited yet? Well, I think I will wait until they get back from their day together before I do the happy dance. I will keep you all posted on how it went.
