Today the little boy learned to say yay!

He said it as I spooned a second helping of dinner on his plate.

He said again when I lifted him up into my lap for a last show.

He said it as I cuddled him in his room before bed.


Such a small word for such a big impact.

I feel like he learned how to express joy today.

It was a good day to learn it.

He had an annual review today. When the city of philadelphia did the eval a year ago he failed in all four of his learning categories.

Today he failed in only one. By 5%.

Which means he still qualifies for therapy, but just barely.
It’s not often that parents get an outside sign that they are doing a good job.

Today we got one.
