He's more than happy, and my recipe turns out like it did in the good old days and I get rid of the multiple day left overs. As a returned favor he occasionally lets me know that he's picking me up on Saturday or Sunday and taking me to breakfast. It works great for us.
The real bonus is you get a hug from your son on his way home. I understand your methods well.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
