I got my coffee as he was coming around the corner. He immediately pointed to the couch and said, “Sit.” I told him he needed to go to the bathroom and off he went. Before I could finish in the kitchen he was turning off the light and telling me to sit again. He didn’t want me to go back to bed. This feels like a different kind of victory for us. The best mornings are when I’m included in his moments.
He sounded very stuffy this morning. About this time every year he seems to run into allergies or a sinus infection. He wasn’t running a fever and thankfully didn’t have a runny nose so I sent him to school. He was very happy to be going but extremely concerned about who was going to be there and who wasn’t. We got out to wait for the bus and that’s all he could concentrate on.
I picked him up from school and off we went to therapy. He requested milk before we got there so I stopped and got him chocolate milk. He guzzled it down and I’m always afraid between that and his sinuses that it would upset his stomach but thankfully he did fine.
He did great at therapy. He requested yoga from his physical therapist. He was a little distracted but still did good. He likes the new exercises they are doing with him. He told me on the way home he was going to do yoga tonight. I had to laugh and I loved it at the same time. I need to get him one of the compression mats. He always acts like he will fall asleep on them.
He wanted pizza so I ordered it and off we went to see the burger boy but he didn’t want to get out. He also told me he wanted to go to the library with his grandma tomorrow and for her to go with us to his swimming lesson on Saturday.
The night went quickly. He didn’t want to go to sleep again but fell asleep fast once he was there. I pray he sleeps all night. I’m thankful he had a good day. When you stop listening to all the negatives and you know you can do it yourself that’s your season of change. Believe in who you are and the rest will follow. Smiles to all and donut daze!
