My 14 year old son, that is. I love all my kids equally. They are ALL my favourite. But today I need to boast about my eldest.
He comes home daily for lunch from yeshiva – I love that I get to see him during the day without other brothers around. One on one time is hard to come by these days with all of them. Some days I am home, some days I am running errands.
Today I had popped out to the shops to buy some bread and milk and snacks etc. He called me on the cell phone when he got home and saw I wasn’t there. I told him where I was. He said “Ima, wait for me, don’t shlepp everything home yourself. Let me walk to the store to meet you and I will shlepp it all home”. That’s exactly what he did. He wasn’t even embarrassed to be seen by his classmates shlepping the bubby-cart full of stuff, his mother by his side.
