Safety Guy's birthday party adventure yesterday went great! He had an awesome time, and lots of fun, and his friend C. was thrilled to have his first group (instead of family-only) party be such a success. I'm so excited for C., whose own autism struggles mirror our sons'. It's so good to be able to share in someone else's success and blessing.
Princess Yakyak is becoming a young lady rather earlier than I'm ready for. The dreaded MOOD SWINGS have begun. Oh. My. Goodness. It's going to be a looooong decade. . . .
I've been seriously dragging today. It's 2PM, and I'm finally starting to feel like I can get some stuff done around the house without feeling like my head isn't quite connected to my shoulders (due to sinus/allergy/headache issues). Now that I'm reliably vertical and coherent, I've got laundry calling my name. Yee haw.
My brave and nice husband is going to take both kids to a fireman's field days event this afternoon. We've been driving by the field all week, watching them set up all of the kids' favorite rides. Safety Guy is hoping there's a Scrambler somewhere in the mix, while Princess Yakyak loves the spinning dragons (kind of like a teacup ride). There's a large, horizontally spinning/tilting/whirling ride we call "The Barfinator" that our son is hoping to talk my husband into riding, but I don't think he'll do it this time, since the chances of PYY riding it are nil, and he won't leave her alone while he and SG ride. Safety Guy will have to decide if he's brave enough to solo. Good luck, guys! I'll tackle the spinning, whirling laundry while you're gone.
