I have a lot to be thankful for. My sons are happy, the weather is beautiful and Liam is on his way home from school. Soon I will be popping outside with a book and a drink and enjoying the sun until the bus arrives. It is perhaps the best part of the day...though sinking into a snuggly bed is pretty good too or the snuggly warm qwerring cuddles I get first thing in the morning (qwerr is Liam's word...its a happy, contented word...i think we all need a word like qwerr)
He is very happy at school...in fact when I popped in an hour or so after dropping him off, he was less than impressed to see me (he has a very expressive face)...sort of what are you doing here, its not time to go yet! He has a marvelous teacher, who I instantly trusted. You know how you sometimes get that feeling about people...it rarely lets you down. I told her today that i though she was doing a wonderful job with Liam as I don't think we tell people enough when we we appreciate what they are doing. Its a shame we are more likely to complain than praise.
I also have to tahnk our relatives, all of whom have accepted Liam without question. This was brought home to be by 2 different experiences:
Aunty Dot's 80th birthday party where Liam's speech interruption was acknowledged with a laugh and thank you and a lack of negative responses to the throwing of various items in the pool and acceptance of such things as a need to lock the front door
The other story concerned a friend of mine, who has a sibling who didn't invite her children because of these same sort of things.
On another matter entirely I am also fortunate as I have won a prize on Kellie's Don't Look Now blog. I always enter any giveaway on her blog as I am yet to see one I haven't wanted...and I have bought a few of her designs too.
Anyway I better go , the bus should arrive in the next 10 mins. How lovely to have my gorgeousness back...well at least until he starts to drive me crazy again LOL
Lots of hugs,
