Boys and Classic Cars
We had a great time, and I got some "cool Mom" brownie points for being able to identify quite a few cars. Although I pretended to get tired of Safety Guy asking me if I saw Car X when I was a kid, and teased him for making me feel old. Just to be a smart alec he'd ask me if I'd seen Model Ts and WWII army jeeps as a kid.
He's one cool kid, and his friend M. is really a great guy too - I'm glad they're friends. They share the same schedule in school, too. M. was really empathetic and asked me lots of questions about how Safety Guy thinks and feels. They were in the same class last year, and M. saw Safety Guy being bullied, and how he reacted to various things. I'm glad SG has a friend and ally at school again this year. Everyone needs a friend like M.
