Munchkin had a very hard day yesterday. Much better today, but we're still holding our breath. So when we got him to clean up his toys this evening, after much stalling, and we sent him into his room to get into his PJ's, I was skeptical when I heard, "Mommy, come look at the ambulance." He had spent all afternoon building fire vehicles out of Legos. Also, our temporary housing is in a small gated community where there is little to no activity. I thought he was stalling again.
No, it turns out there were both a fire engine and an ambulance parked right outside his bedroom window! We made him get into his PJ's before going out to look. No one was there at first, and then out of one house walked Fireman Dave, Munchkin's favorite fireman.
For the first time in weeks, Munchkin went to bed without a fuss and with a big smile on his face. I told him he had just gotten a kiss goodnight from God.
