Lately our days have go one way or the other - terribly bad or insanely good. I am happy to report that today was of the insanely good variety! I am learning quickly to better appreciate the good days so they can carry me through the challenging ones.
Today started off like this ...I get a secret thrill over Brady's obsession with reading. He has a Signing Time book and can recognize what the characters are signing and will often sign back. In his own way Brady is reading. So take that, you 16-month old reading prodigy I saw on the Today Show!
Here he is a few minutes later clinging to my sweats while I am trying to get ready.
Just as I start to feel annoyed that my hair will dry funny and that my pants are falling off Brady asks for "up", grabs both of my cheeks, plants a giant kiss on me, lunges to get back down and goes about his merry way throwing toys into the bathtub. I could not ask for a sweeter boy.
Today Raising Special Kids held their annual Special Day for Special Kids at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in Scottsdale. We had so much fun last year we have been counting down the days and praying Brady would have a good day.
I have to admit I was not a fan of the petting zoo. I was wearing flip flops and was way too worried about stepping in poo.We ran into a good friend from our music therapy group at Foundation for Blind Children and watched baby Z for a few minutes. Brady is getting old enough to touch babies "soft." Woo hoo!
By the way, Brady is blessed with perfectly normal vision. The kind staff at Foundation for Blind Children took us in simply because his eyes are extremely sensitive to sunlight (why he is always wearing sunglasses in outdoor pics). We are extremely fortunate to be involved with these organizations and I really wish something similar existed in Utah.
Thanks for reading about our day. I hope yours was as good as ours. :-)
