Only Child?

Today Michael went and did laundry with me. I usually don't take him. Today he was pretty good. He was actually playing with a 1 1/2 year old girl. They were laughing and joking around. The baby's mom came up to me and said "does your son have a younger brother or sister?" "No, why?". She said "because he plays so well with my daughter".

Wow. Never got that reaction before. I was so proud of Michael. I also changed the schedule today and he didn't get upset at all.

This morning was open house at summer school. I saw Michael in OT with 2 other special needs kids and in his summer school class. He did very well. The class had about 10 kids (9 boys and 1 girl). They all had some type of disability. One kid had Downs. Most of them talked. But, I wouldn't say they are a talkative group. One kid saw me and asked "are you Michael's mom?" The teacher said the two of them played together in the after school program. It's called SAIL. It's like a social skills thing.

The landscapers came today and put in a million bushes and a few trees in front of the building today. It was cute. Michael touches his chest and says "They are putting in bushes for ME". They look great and the building doesn't look like a dump anymore. FINALLY!
