There have been a lot of intense threads here lately and I thought it might be cool to share a bit of the lighter side
My 16 yo ds seems to always have one or another of his friends around for an extended stay (if I am lucky its not 6 sigh…. "how much ramen is left”?) … anyway a couple of months ago he started a friendship with one of the new kids at school and before you know it he had pretty much moved in. I really like him (especially when he washes the dishes because he is “bored”) and the energy in our house always feels good when he is around. So one day he starts to tell me about his dad, how he lives in France and how he hasn’t seen him since he was very little. Then he tells me his dads name. “Hey I used to have a friend by that name, he is from Portugal” “oh? My dad is from Portugal.” “No way, it can’t be.” Well two weeks later it was confirmed, a good friend of my whole family, we had lost touch with over the years.. was this young mans father! We didn’t even know he had a son..
