My group study is doing the love languages book. I have one son I can't figure out. I thought he might be gifts, so yesterday, I bought him a giant Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for Valentine's Day. In the middle of "King of the Nerds" he saw an ad for Reese's pieces and said he was ready to hurl. He didn't even eat that much of it. But gifts may not be his language. Or I bought the wrong one...
I know it's not touch. He can't take touch -- not even as a baby. Not unless it's violent and involves his brothers, then he seems all for touch.
It's not words of affection -- at least not from me. He says, "You have to say nice things. You're my mom. No one believes their mom!"
It's not acts of service -- "I can do that myself, Mom!"
He just might be "Quality Time" like his Mama and that's why it's hard for me to see. Because when we just hang out and watch "King of the Nerds" -- we're happy campers. We make the most of car rides and errands because we make each other laugh. So yeah, maybe it's quality time.
What's yours? Best way to show it?
