I'm so excited!

It's a Time for Mom linkup!

{stream of consciousness}

Yesterday was nearly perfect.
The weather was lovely.
PJ's behavior was outstanding.
I finally got the phone call about the start of ABA therapy for PJ,
   Something that was a project over a year in the making.
I found out a short piece I submitted to an online magazine was accepted.
Dinner came out good and looked pretty- a braided stromboli with homemade dough.
PJ and I enjoyed an after-dinner treat at Friendly's and some evening playground time.
PJ took his medicine like a champ,
  Then snuggled down to sleep with a new friend tucked in with him.
One would think that a child who owns seventy zillion Thomas trains
 might start to feel a little indifferent to them.
This particular train has been on his wish list for a while and last week
  while PJ laid in my lap, feverish and sad, I caved in and ordered it.
The package arrived and we opened it together.
PJ practically vibrated with joy.
Someday, my son will understand that true joy
 doesn't come in a box from Amazon.
(Although sometimes, I need to be convinced of that as well. I loveAmazon.)
The happiness of being in the ocean, or seeing his friends;
 the euphoria of Daddy getting home from work or the rush of performing in front of a crowd.
All of those intangible things that I worry he won't connect to- I hope he knows and loves those feelings.
But on this day, it was a train, and that's okay, too.
