While we were at the park one day playing on a merry-go-round, a little boy (probably around 10) was speaking to his friends and pointed at Matthew. I held my breath as I waited to hear what he had to say.
He told his friends, "Come here. You have to come see this little boy. He gets so happy when we spin!" And that little boy was right. Matthew LOVES to spin on the merry-go-round. And I loved this little boy for thinking it was pretty cool.
It made up for the not as nice comment our (usually very sweet) pediatrician said without thinking later that same day. I don't even remember exactly what the comment was, just that it wasn't very sensitive.
I guess it is always good to remember the good and forget the bad!
