Today I am grateful that Baylor had a good birthday celebration experience at school. He told me that it wasn't so bad, that he only had to hold his hands over his ears (during the singing), and that he didn't hide under the table or cry. (Yes, all of these things have happened during other school birthday celebrations.) He even told me he thought of a relaxing/fun place like I had suggested beforehand. (He chose Chicago; we will definitely have to visit there soon in celebration.)
Grandpa Chris's birthday party is tomorrow night, and I'm hoping that the positive experience today will make him even a little bit more comfortable about tomorrow's festivities. We shall see.
Have a wonderful night!
