Mr7's Easter eggs, spring 2013
Usually I don't mind taking care of Mr7. For those of you who don't know me, I am raising my Partner's grandson, aka Mr7. The boy's mother is way too young and pretty ineffective, to put it mildly. She lives in the downstairs apartment, and Mr7 lives with me and my Partner. Click here to read about my family.
The other day I had many errands, and I left Mr7 at home with his mother. Poor thing. He was bored, and his mother was downstairs. He kept calling me and asking me when was I returning home.
When I finally got home, I found his room in total disarray. I instructed him to clean his room and take a bath. This is when he took me by surprise and said, "Sometimes I feel like I've been adopted."
I ask him to explain himself, and he proceeded with, "I mean I feel like I've been adopted by you and Grampa."
His statement made me feel so sad for him and his bio-mom. I can't do anything to remedy the situation. All I can do is keep loving this boy.
