One of my fondest memories from my childhood was being read the The Little Engine That Could by my parents. Now that I’m all grown up I’m reminded of that story when I look at my kids.
Emmett is perhaps the one that reminds me of this story the most.
To me, not being able to communicate is something that I can’t even begin to imagine. Despite this and many other challenges, Emmett never quits trying. Sometimes that’s not always a good thing but more often than not it’s a great thing.
Sometimes be more like the Energizer Bunny because he just never shuts down.
Today however, was very different. Well actually, this afternoon was different. Emmett was all over the place today while Lizze was at PT.
After PT, Emmett hung out with Grandma, while a Lizze and I went to the farmer’s market in Hartville. When we got back to up Emmett, he had been baking with Grandma.
On our way home, Emmett started to doze off. When I got him out of his car seat he jumped out of the van and walked to the front steps. He basically stopped dead in his tracks and tried to go back to sleep. Totally cute…
I guess even the Little Engine That Could, needs a break every now and again. 🙂
