We finally broke down and admitted that our boys need Special Olympics in order to participate in sports (we had to work through a lot of grief on that one as sports are HUGE in our family). Today was Tigger's first District meet - hundreds of athletes ages 8-80. All I wanted was a meltdown free day -- icing would have been that he finished at least one race. I am proud to announce that...Tigger finished ALL THREE RACES. He finished the 100m and his leg of the 4x100 without stopping and he only walked about 5 steps of the 200m. He came in 3rd in both individual events and 2nd in the relay -- he is so proud. There was not a single meltdown. He had one moment at the end when he asked if I hated him because he didn't get any 1st places. I assured him that I was so proud of him I could burst. We had a celebratory dinner at Outback and told the waitress all about winning his medals! We called grandma too He is so proud of himself. What a great day!
