Thomas wants to learn about stocks and investing so we went to the library today and got him a few books. I also gave him a couple of websites to visit. I was really on top of it in the early to mid 2000’s …. yet, life kinda took a drastic turn!

I had to dish out a negative consequence to Mr. T last night due to a little incident.
After choosing to go to his room for some calming down and reflection and watching the “D iz for Different” video journey (he loves watching it every movie night), he had these things to say, “I love my life. Life is so happy it makes me cry. We have all we need and want. We have food. We have a house. We have a car and most of all we have each other.” Then he wrote a note to Lillian that she is very kind and he loves her and his eyes were sweating because he was so happy!
Dishing out negative consequences is no fun y’all. Yet, the rewards to the soul that receives it far outweigh the uncomfortable moments. Here’s to a day full of positive consequences!

We had an intimate, masked, socially distanced celebration with The Romano Duo and Robert, graced with absolutely divine vegan cupcakes from Batch Cupcakery. I took my selfie after everyone left! Ha!
Thomas received some great gifts!
A basketball, volleyball (so we can use the great courts here), a shirt, a hoodie, a desk chair, a homemade card from Lillian, a turntable, an album, and a photo book of our date days over the past year. I still need to make a homemade card or poem for him.
