Helped Kati throw a sleep-over party for her daughter, today. Belac was one of 6 kids invited and the only boy. I was happy to be there, helping out with the tie-dye shirts and the games. I kept refocusing Belac and pushing him in. Izzy kept pulling him along, too. For some reason she just loves Belac and finds him so funny. He was happy to be there, but it was a lot of stimulation and commotion for him and I could see that it was just easier for him to unplug and escape. He definitely does better in one-on-one situations. I asked him before I left if he really wanted to stay. Yes!! He told me.
Kati, call me if he freaks out about the rain and thunder. I'll come right over and get him.
He'll be fine, Gimky, she reassured me as she stood barefoot on her porch and hugged me goodbye.
And I noticed he was wandering around a lot and not always following along with everything....
There is a lot going on! He knows our house and is comfortable, she shrugged. It's fine, Gimky, just go. Go! I'll call if I need to.
For some reason, her family loves my Belac. They are so accepting of my quirky son. It's just this huge, huge thing that he's never quite had before. And it is also this enormous gift of friendship and companionship we are about to lose. It's going to be just all around terrible and heartbreaking when they go.
