Tonight, the J-man and I attended a Family Fun Night for special needs kids at a local indoor park. Think McDonalds Playland without the french fries. J-man loves the place... and because all the families there were parents and children with special needs, it felt like a place we could be totally free. No one had any expectations, just complete open acceptance. How lovely for all these wonderful kids and their parents!
Anyhoo, at one point the J-man saw the candy machine and insistently signed "eat". I got him a few Skittles and we made our way to the seating area. He signed and said "candy" as he munched. One of the other parents seated next to us asked him his name. Of course, he didn't respond.
Then this man, in a friendly way, asked J-man to 'Give me five'.....
AND HE DID IT!
Jonathan high-fived a perfect stranger! And, to make it even better, he went on and did the "up high/down low" part. I didn't even know he KNEW that.
Isn't it just the little things ....?
