First baseball game for Walter today and he came away with the gameball for defensive player of the game. I was so proud I almost pee’d myself. He made two very good plays and certainly caught the eye of the other coaches. I knew he would.
When we got home he did something I’ve rarely seen. He played. He got toys out and played. He insisted I sit in his room and play with him, which I did. But eventually, like it always does, it ended up with me sitting and watching him slam action figures and Hot Wheels together. He’s been so down with recent disappointments that I won’t go into it really just kind of bowled me over. I hope we get out of the middle soon. I like it when he plays.
