Evan has this new “obsession”. He enjoys picking out and “purchasing” jewelry for me. Which really is such a sweet gesture. For Christmas he insisted, to Jeremy, that I NEEDED this:
Jeremy warned me before hand that Evan picked out a piece of jewelry “all by himself”. It isn’t really my style and I kinda joked with everyone about how “beautiful” it was. After showing it off a few times, I realized that some of my friends and family really did like this piece. It’s not a cheap piece of jewelry, which is a plus, just not really my style. But someday soon, I may need a piece just like it. Who knows.
During Christmas break, the boys headed to a local arcade/entertainment place called Scene 75. I didn’t go because I was pretty sick and needed to stay in bed. When the boys came home, Evan had the SWEETEST story to tell me! One that proves that there may be hope on some emotional ties between me and my first born.
He had earned x amount of tickets. I don’t remember the amount. But when it was time to cash in the tickets to the prize counter, he decided to use all of his tickets ON ME!!! He purchased me two bracelets and a necklace. He came home so proud of himself and excited to see how I would welcome my new accessories.
I made a huge deal about how awesome my new jewelry was and then quietly sat them aside.
Today I was getting ready for work (I am subbing a few days a week now- trying to ease back into full time teaching – trying) and he told me that one of the bracelets would look perfect with my outfit. How can he NOT remember to flush the toilet after he is done using it, but can remember that he purchased me jewelry from the prize counter 3 weeks ago. Go figure! So he ran to get my bracelet and proudly presented it to me and asked, “won’t you wear it today to work?”
It barely fits my wrist and the elastic shows through but don’t you know I wore it. And wore it proudly, okay maybe under my sleeve, I admit. But I wore it and was too afraid to take it off because he may have forgot I have it on, but if I would have taken it off, I would have been asked about it! So now I am off to class (I am also taking a grad class this semester too) still wearing this beauty!
My little man, who I argue and fight with all.the.time loves to buy me jewelry! So I will wear it proudly because apparently he likes me more then he will admit !
