I had to shave my son today. He is 19 and severely autistic. I never imagined it. I never imagined that I would be fully responsible for a grown man like that.
I thought he would be better if I did all the right things.....it didn't happen. :( So..... I have to get him showered and shaved everyday so I can go to work. I suck at shaving.
So as he looked in the mirror he touched his face and grabbed my hand and rubbed it against all the whiskers I had missed. I said "I'm sorry Mar, I did the best I could I just suck at shaving" And he smiled and grabbed my hand again (to show me more whiskers I assumed) and kissed it, like I do his on so many occasions, and I think he may have gotten it. I laughed until water came out my eyes. and he laughed and wiped the tear off my face because he hates to see them run down.
