    It always seems that Carson will have a few really hairy, bad days. Then a few normal, but worse than "easy child normal", days. And then he throws us a bone. A glimmer. A sparkling slice of...well, sunshine. A perfectly behaved day. Full of playing nice with his brothers. No agression towards his sisters. Playing fair. No hitting the computers, screaming hateful words. A good day.

    Those are the best of days. Those are the days I day dream about on any of the other days. Those are the days I glance towards heaven and whisper "Thank you".

    Today was one of those days. I love this boy... even on his worst days. But today was soooo gooood.

    Its days like this this that remind us of why we're going to all this effort... there really is a lovable kid in there somewhere that we're trying to help survive and surface...

    It's why we don't give up, even when others are telling us we're angels, saints or NUTS.
