Jais just got home from school 5 minutes ago, and said “apple” to request his snack- on his own- no prompts. Then when he saw a new box I got in the mail said “help” – asking me to open it. When I grabbed the antibacterial gel to wash his hands for snack time, he said “handsome”- relating it to lotions, which we call “handsomes”, and then said “sit down” as he sat down for his snack. I am so happy and feel so content right now. Sometimes I get so caught up in the day that I don’t even realize the magic that is happening all around me . . . What a beautiful day it is today!
