Today was Fall Dress Up Day at school and Corrigan was pretty excited to go “marching” around school this year. His class barely got to march though and it broke my heart to see his lip quivering, and eyes fill with tears, when he realized he wasn’t allowed to follow the other kids in the parade.
The day ended in lots of tears but I fixed it with a drive to Arby’s for some curly fries and root beer and he was all better. He’s already forgotten why he was upset but it’s still lingering in my mind tonight. His circumstances are different though and I suppose I just need to get used to things not being the same for him. It is what it is, at least he wasn’t sick on Halloween this year!
