And so it is. Himself's mom has been moved to a rehab facility that's close to her home. She's surrounded by people she's known for years, plus most of the family lives in the same town. As a bonus, Himself finally struck gold at a yard sale.
He usually doesn't have much luck finding something he has to have.
In this case, he found one of those "Hit a button and the chair lifts you to your feet" recliners for $90. Practically new, too! It even fits in his mom's living room. He was excited, his mom was pleased, and the previous owners were happy to make a sale.
Speaking of happy, Himself received the all-time greatest Father's Day present for a first-time dad. Baby's first smile for Daddy! I got one on Saturday when Junior and I were playing on the rug. Yesterday morning found the three of us stretched out on the covers, enjoying a little "us" time. Himself called Junior's name and tickled his ear, causing Junior to turn toward him and light up with a big grin.
Better than Kodak, baby!
This morning was Junior's official introduction to music lessons. The Suzuki Strings program has a class called "Sound Encounters" for children up to three years old. We sang, danced, bounced and played various simple instruments. While Junior did more spectating than participating, he did take notice. It was weird! His breathing pattern changed when he heard the xylophone and other instruments, and he was very calm and alert during the singing.
That's my boy! Now, if I could just teach him to wind yarn...
