The Happy Couple
If these two end up getting married one day, I'll be the happiest mother-in-law in the world. Wesley and Courtney are peas in a pod. I didn't believe my smart, crazy son could ever find someone so intelligent and pretty who shares his quirky sense of humor.
We had so much fun just hanging out today. We watched two movies - one of my favorites, Rob Roy, which Courtney hadn't seen and the documentary Grizzly Man, after which we debated the madness of Timothy Treadwell.
Later, Wesley spent time wrestling his little brother into fits of giggles and playing Nintendo with Alex and John. They think Wesley is the greatest. Every big brother should be so admired, or so deserving of admiration.
When Wesley was still a little tyke like Lucas, I remember wondering what kind of young man he'd grow into. I also remember fretting over how fast he was growing.
But don't let anyone tell you that having grown children isn't as wonderful as having little ones. It's just different and so rewarding to spend time together not just as family but as friends.
I have to pinch myself every day. I feel that blessed.
