My College Boy Friend and his live-in came for lunch today. Daughter went beyond gracious. She threw her arms around CBF and jumped up and down.
Yesterday she didn't want him to come. She said he was a reminder of the past, and she didn't want to remember the past. I pointed out that he had no connection whatsoever to her birth family. I reminded her of the fun we used to have when he visited us in Inner City when she was young. He gave her her duplo blocks. We went to the zoo, and the beach, and had fun together.
I guess she decided it was okay for him to visit. After we ate, she disappeared into her computer while the rest of us talked. It was a pleasant visit. I'm enjoying having a social life again.
