Five Fact Friday – From the Christmas concert, to a visit with Santa, to the magic of the mall (ha!), it’s been a holly jolly, very merry, happy week.
There are families who have worked longer and harder than we have who will never see the results they hope for with their children who face disability or illness. There are families who never get to see their child free from illness, impairment, or injury. And watching Sophie stand up with classmates from a typical kindergarten classroom for a Christmas concert is something I didn’t know if I’d ever get to see. She is a complete and total miracle.
Milo was feeling okay about it until he got to Santa’s lap. Then he just sort of sat there while Sophie chattered on about how the elves had been very good, don’t you think? and please don’t forget my brother Milo who is sitting on your lap right now and also could I have a present please?
I loved it so much.
Milo is starting to follow suit in his own way, insisting on wearing neon purple gloves to school drop off, a lot of old man cardigans, his rain boots as often as he can get away with, and just this week he started quietly “rebelling” by wearing mismatched socks most days. It’s so funny. And I’m sure we look like a circus more often than not, but I’d rather let clothes go and be a stickler about other things.
