My son doesn’t like me telling these😉 He still laughs about it though, very good kid, love him with all my heart!
Another funny story, when my son was 4, my brother and I were working on a car in my front drive in Cal. my brother had a big screwdriver about 2-3 ft long, we had a big tree in the front yard, my son was hitting the tree with the screwdriver. I told him he shouldn’t be hitting the tree with the screwdriver cause he was hurting it. My son being sweet like I was when I was his age, I told him to hug the tree, tell it that he was sorry. He did, I told my brother “gives new meaning to the term tree hugger, huh?”😉
Another time we were out of state staying in a motel. He was always hassling me about going to the pool and going swimming. I was working late one night and since there was a bright light just outside the window in our room, you could not tell if it was actually dark or not outside without pulling back the curtain. About 1am I got a bright idea. I woke him up and asked him if he wanted to go swimming he was sleeping the day away and it was 1 o’clock. He fell for it, you can figure out the rest.
A little more about my son, this is one of the AMAZING things about the Lord, he is not my biological son, he is just as much or more like me though than a biological son. He is actually my ex’s, sisters boy, her sister was on drugs really bad, gave him mainly sugar water when he was a baby, so much so that his skin was actually gray when we got him. He had medical issues that we had to get taken care of, because of his mothers drug use. Eye operated on among other things, I won’t go into the long story about why he is with me instead of my exe, I’ll just say he prefers it that way, I love him, I am his father, and he doesn’t care if he ever sees my exe again.
That’s all for now, will add more of my orneriness and his as I think of them.
P.S. another thing about adoption and the way the Lord works, doing genealogy I have met many cousins thru doing it. One that was in Okla., looking up some records here about 2-3 weeks ago, came by to meet me, mom, grandma etc., His last name was Bell, just thru adoption though, he was born a Reynolds. I have an Uncle who is a Bell, my cousin I just met looks so much like my uncle they could be brothers. He and his sister were both adopted into the same family, then they had a sibling who was the biological child of the parents, he and his adopted sister look more like the parents than the biological child does.
Isn’t it amazing how God works things out?
