it's in his blood

The first step is for Stone to acknowledge that he is powerless over the purple van.Some days he wakes up whimpering. I go in to grab him and cuddle and wake up softly.
He pushes my hands away and mumbles "purple van" under his morning breath.
I know the rules, believe me. I'm not supposed to get it for him, but I'm not supposed to hide it either.
I will be neither the enabler nor the codependent.
Karma's a bitch.

Funny. Purple van is compelling in its purpleness.
