Even though it's been months and months since those harder days, it's still such a pleasant surprise to take them someplace and have no stress, no meltdowns, no tears, and no reactions.
Today the boys were invited to a double-birthday pool party for two of M's preschool buddies. I didn't take any pictures (sad) but Mi swam like a fish the whole time, I got to visit with all my mom-friends, and L was fabulous and seizure-free.
And, also important, neither boy asked anything rude about the party food. (Is this junk food? Does this have additives?) We made muffins this morning and brought some to keep in the car for after the party. M excitedly watched the birthday kids blow out their candles, and then jumped back in the pool when they started serving it.
