|Mr. I Playing With Grandson|
At first, Mr. I was worried it was an educational game, but Microbio daughter assured him it was fun. He did have fun and not only played calmly, he helped Microbio Daughter clean up at the end!
While they were playing the game, Ms. D cleaned the kitchen. Without being asked. Ms. D doesn't clean for approval. She cleans when she is happy. I was kind of worried the past couple of months when she didn't clean. The last time she went through a spell like that, she was hiding her contact with the birth family. I am kind of worried that the only one of the birth family that has contacted her for two weeks was Bio Dad. He's been calling every couple of days to see how she is doing after her hospitalization. I am so thankful for this. I can tell it hurts her that Bio Mom and the siblings haven't returned her calls or messages. She doesn't understand that they are moving and going through a lot of stuff right now and don't have the capacity to show her love like she needs. But fortunately, my older kids have been showing extra care and love to Ms. D. So when Ms. D started cleaning last night, it was a sign to me that she feels loved and accepted at least by us. And it helps that Bio Dad is calling too.
