Wow! This has been a long week. It is tough getting adjusted back into the schedule of work and kids and everything else. But we had a great evening yesterday. We went out for pizza. Michael ate 3 or 4 pieces and he really liked it. My mother-in-law had made a cake with the two older kids, so after dinner we ate cake. Michael kept "stealing" my pop every time I looked away. After cake we let him open presents. Then I had him and Matthew go over out of the way to play with his cars, so we could put the tables back where they went. When I looked up again, Michael was running circles around the tables and giggling. He was on a real sugar high. He does not do well with sugar and the cake and pop was way too much for him. So when we left, we took the kids to the park to run off some of their energy. They had a ton of fun. Then we came home and all the kids played with Michael and his new toys. Michael enjoyed setting up the three trees that came with his jungle animals (after counting them) and then he would run them over with his new car. Then we sat and rolled the cars back and forth. It was a fabulous evening. It was so nice that Michael went a whole evening without throwing a fit about anything. (well he started to when his siblings wanted to take his toys, but he stopped when we helped explain to them that they were his new toys and he got to play with them first)
