Doing Hard Things

Sometimes you never know what's coming down here!!! Last night Gage was playing Varsity football in Syracuse. We had to leave at 5:30 to get there. Ella and Talen were on Grandma duty. Ella calls and says Grandma wants to go to bed. So I told her that she could either go to bed in her clothes or wait for an hour for me to get home. Well, she decided she just wanted to go to bed with her clothes on. So they put her in bed. Ella went upstairs to go to bed, and Talen stayed downstairs.

Grandma started yelling that she needed help, so Talen went in to see what she needed,

"I can't get my bra off."

So Talen yelled for Ella to come and help, and she said, "No!"
Talen called me back again and told me that Grandma needed help getting her bra off. So I told him to see if Ella would help, and he told me he already asked her, and she said no (Ella can't do any personal care for her because it freaks her out!)

Yep, I asked!!!!

"Talen, can you go and help her?"
"Do I have to?"
"Well, you can ask her if she wants to sit there until I get home, or you can go and help her."
"Ok, I'll go help her."
Should I remind you, her bra does up in the front?

So I get home, and the first thing Talen says is,
"Mom, Grandma's bra is so hard to take off!".

She ended up still awake by the time I got home because it took him so long to figure it out, so I quickly put on her pajamas and put her to bed.
Well, this will be a night I don't think Talen will forget. I am so proud of him for just doing what needed to be done, even if it is taking off his Grandma's bra.
