Happy, happy

Things that made me unreasonably happy today...

1. When Thomas came running down the hallway at school this afternoon - wearing his coat, hat and mittens because they were just coming in from outside - yelling, "my mommy!" over and over when he saw me.

2. Discovering something called a Vanilla Spice latte at a coffee shop near where I was enduring 8 hours of software training. That first sip was heavenly.

3. Getting a call from our local school district this afternoon informing me that after evaluating Thomas at school last week, they will definitely not be providing speech therapy services for him once he turns three. The therapist reported that she understood him easily, that he has a good vocabulary and that she thinks his remaining difficulties will improve on their own. Whew.

4. Having Andrew "read" And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street to me tonight. He only got about 25% of the words right but he's trying soooo hard and he wants soooo much to do it. I had a (happy) tearful moment of realizing that it's going to click for him and when it does, look out.
