Then she comes over tonight after work to see him. He gets big hugs and big hugs and immediately becomes a happier boy. Like he hasn't been cranky crankster from cranksterville ALL DAY LONG. The he starts asking for random things.
***I must take a moment to point out that the entire time we lived together, he would get MAD if we were cuddling or hugging or, god forbid, kissing. He would wedge his little self in between us and make us stop the activity immediately (of course we continued whatever we were doing anyway...)***
However, tonight it was like he was trying to play cupid and throw the arrow in our direction. He and Mom were playing trains and she started tickling him like always. He immediately stopped everything and looked up at her and said, "iickle Mommy?" "You want me to tickle Mommy?" she asked in amazement (as mentioned NOT usual for him), and he sat there nodding his head like, yeah, that's the greatest idea I have ever heard. So she came over and tickled me and I proceeded to squeal and call out for help and he loved it. He ate it up. "Get Mommy?" Over and over again. And then he took each one of us by the hand and pulled us next to each other and instructed us to give each other a "BIG" hug. Again we went with it and gave a big hug. He nodded in appreciation. Then he instructed us to give a "baby" hug as well. He was pleased when we followed through with this request as well. Then before Mom was going to leave he told her to give me a kiss. At this point it just seems sad. I honestly don't know if he truly could understand what is going on, or if he is feeling just confused and unsettled and wanted to make sure that we still have love for each other or what. All I know is that this is not what I expected.
