This little boy survived a weekend of being with people he didn’t know.
I spent today at the local zoo for ADA day. I was representing the organization I work for.
I offered to have my boys join me at the zoo when I finished work for some special mommy/boys time.
My honey told the boys what was going to happen. Eli opted out.
He requested instead a trip to the park. The “new” park.
A park that is fun to play at. A park that is usually very quiet. A park that often has no other children playing at it.
This intelligent little boy figured out on his own that he needed to play outside. He needed to run and climb. He needed to do it all in a place where he didn’t have to interact with anyone but his brother. Where he didn’t have a lot of unknowns.
So thanks to our local park system for creating a quaint “new” park in a location that many have not yet discovered. It is a safe haven for the sensory seeking and sensory avoiding alike.
