Before bed, Jarve loves to come in and chat with me. He basically downloads his day, and talks about any particular concerns he has, and tells me he loves me a million times over. It is also a time for problem solving. It is such a sweet time. I cherish it so.
Tonight before bed, this was the gist of the conversation.
Jarvie: Mama you are the best Mom in the whole world.
Mama: Jarvie you are the best boy in the whole world.
Jarvie: Mama how can I be the best boy in the whole world, when I fight with Giles everyday?
Mama: Well, you are a work in progress. Everyday you are changing and hopefully everyday you will work toward fighting with Giles less and getting along more. I am very proud of you just the way you are.
Jarvie: Well, now we fight about 5 times everyday. Maybe I could get it down to 2 times a day. That would be better. Huh Mama?
Mama: That would be much better. Just try to get along with him. Sometimes it is better to give something up, so you can get along. Just try it and see if you like it.
Jarvie: Okay Mama, I’m gonna try it. You are the best Mama ever!
And with that, Jarvie drifted off to sleep!
