Most days are sheer chaos, full of quick meltdowns and quicker tears of the frustration that is life. You both have learned to lean on each other, a weird dependency has taken hold on the both of you. S, you have become increasingly protective of J and in turn J you have become S's shadow learning from him all that he will show you (the good habits and bad habits alike). I am comforted in knowing that beyond me and your father you have each other, a unique bond, a friendship stronger than any other in your life. I love you both. Mom.
