Sebastian wore a ribbon for Easter.
In other news, my parents and sister joined Kaylie’s family for dinner today. We hadn’t expected them to say yes to the invitation but they showed up. With a photo album of me as a kid.
It was far less awkward than I thought it was going to be.
All in all, this was a huge step for them. This was the first “in-laws” holiday they’ve ever had. I know it isn’t what they were dreaming of for me, but still. They came and it ended up being a pretty good time. Dad even prepared a prayer that he read before we ate.
I wonder what it was like for them to come into this big family and see that they had all embraced me….

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.
DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.
