He started telling me he was going to see his friend today when he got to school. I repeated that he was going to see his friend and he said, “Best friend.” He wanted to see his best friend!!
He also talked to me about seeing his afternoon bus people. He couldn’t wait to see them. He missed them so much during the snow days and he didn’t see them yesterday because he went to music therapy and I picked him up from school. I’m very thankful he wants to see his people and he has so many amazing people in his life that are helping him grow.
His new thing is asking to go to Dollar General. He wants to go to a specific one and I’m not sure why. He may have gone with our friends or he remembers it from when he was little which wouldn’t surprise me. He wants to stop at another building near it that has a bug on the sign.
When he came home from school I thought I had gotten him to go shopping because he mentioned Dollar General but he quickly changed his mind and said bowling and then no and then more nos. We stayed home but we did lots of activities.
I made baked steak and rice for dinner. He loved the steak until I gave him a bite of the rice and gravy. Then he told me to throw it in the trash. I pivoted and went back to just the baked steak that had only a little gravy on it and he was eating it again. He ate a full slice. At first, he told me he wanted soup for dinner and then mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. He has been coming up with interesting meal choices.
He played music with me tonight and I love to hear him sing. He wanted me to sit while I ate my banana again. The long bath once again basically gets the whole house wet but at least he enjoys it.
Sleep was not something he wanted to do but it didn’t take him long to fall asleep. I pray he sleeps again and I’m very thankful for a great day. We all have a story to tell about the journey we are on. You are important and so is your story. Smiles to all and donut daze!
