My handsome hubby returns to us today after several days away. He was missed, but I’m so happy he had this trip, this chance. And it was a great opportunity for me, too. I had these hours and days with The Dude; this chance to prove that I can overcome the creaky, lonely house and the potential for mice in the mudroom (even if I just simply chose to never use the mudroom…).
Z-Man and I had a great few days.
There was standing. And almost walking! And lots of snuggles, of course. We laughed a lot. We talked a lot. Well, he babbled incomprehensively and I responded with deep thoughts about life.
And we felt a lot of love from a lot of amazing people. So many of Zack’s little friends came to spend time with us. And that meant so, so much to both of us.
It’s been a really, really great few days.
*Remember, 3-21, World Down Syndrome Day, is coming up quickly. Make sure you’ve visited ndss.org and please think about all of our Zacharys and all of our possibilities for tomorrows.
Speaking of 3-21… I’ve been presented with a great honor, a great possibility myself to bring about some awareness in our area. I’m thinking it over and thinking that it requires a little bravery for a lot of that awesome possibility. Zack would want me to, I think. More soon…
