Since starting school, my son has been very happy. He knows what to expect each and every day, he has his routine, and his world makes sense. School has been in session for 2 months, but in the last couple weeks especially, he is radiating JOY.
He smiles most of the time (and not just a simple smile, but a take-up-your-whole-face smile), he’s coming up to me or my husband and getting in our faces to invite us to play, he giggles. It’s awesome.
For all of those moments that are unpleasant, challenging, taxing, or sad, even one little moment of seeing this joyful little boy can make us forget anything that’s difficult for a while. We are definitely appreciative of the good place we are in right now.
