Today is a good day. In fact, I think the past few days have actually been good, but today is definitely a good day. When days are good they catch me off guard because I am not expecting them and am not used to them. It is such a joy to watch and be a part of.
John took A to preschool this morning and C and I had a leisurely morning at home. This is something we never do. However, last week was a hospital week and I thought C could use some time by herself with mommy at our own house. We had such a nice morning doing absolutely nothing. We picked A up from preschool without any issues and even went to the grocery store. Anyone who reads this and has a child with special needs will understand that you don’t go straight from preschool to the grocery store. EVER. In fact, you just don’t go to the grocery store with the child with needs. But we pushed on and had an extremely successful trip. It was shocking.
After the girls had lunch, they sweetly went into the playroom to play doggies and played on their own for over an hour. There wasn’t a single fight or any need for mommy to intervene at all during that time. Such interactions are unheard of in this house. It is these types of days that are surprising to me because I am unable to expect that they will happen. It is such a delight to be a part of it. I’m sad that we have an appointment this afternoon that we have to pack up and leave for. But that is nice feeling to have.
