In order to have the most support available to him, Alex got the news from his Mother and Step-Father here with all of us present.
You ever watch a 12 year old just crumble before? Just literally sink into his own chest and start to moan? That kind of gut-wrenching cry that is nothing but hurt and pain and loss?
I have. And it was my son.
Not a fun night.
I think we managed to cheer him up. Got him some retail therapy in the form of a wireless adapter for his XBox 360. But..yeah…it was rough there for a little while.
I think I’m gonna get a small drink, have a smoke, and call it a night.
