You would s**t if you knew how many people were involved with that last $700 (or weren't, as it were). It was another proverbial boot to the skull... in a good way.

I'm thoroughly enjoying being at a loss for words while trying to explain this whole thing to my son. He caught me off guard earlier this week by casually mentioning he likes that I smile more and I'm nicer lately. Mixed feelings on that one... Anyway, I got the last paypal notification in the car tonight while we were waiting on my wife at the pharmacy. It was a non-trivial amount. He saw my reaction and asked, "are the subaru people being super nice again?".

It's trickier to explain than it sounds...

Best. Parenting. Challenge. Ever.
