To my three daughters:
Today we all went to the zoo. You guys were all completely excellent. You had so much fun looking at all of the animals. It was simply a delight.
See, the reason I am saying this is because not all of our family outings run smoothly. Sometimes one of you doesn’t feel good. Or wants to do something completely different from the other. Or maybe your senses are overloaded from being autistic. Or maybe one of you feels left out.
Today was solid.
You all named all of the animals. You were super kind to everyone around you. We would let you play on the little playgrounds and train along the way. And when we were ready to move on, you all responded to your names and followed directions.
We are completely lucky to have you three beautiful girls. No matter what the day is. If it’s hard or easy… we want it to be with you guys always.
But for today, I just want to say thank you for being extra special and wonderful.
Love, Mommy & Daddy
