It's Tyler day.  He's on Spring Break for the next two days.  BUT, Derek has pre-school today.  So from 8:00 until 12:00 today Tyler and I have a VERY RARE four hours alone together.  This never happens.  So I'm letting him choose what we are going to do.  So far, this is what we have planned:  we are going to go to the store and get donuts and hot chocolate.  We are also going to stock up on eggs and boil them so we can dye Easter Eggs--it's one of his favorite past-times, so every Easter we stock up on extra packages so we can do it throughout the year.  We are going to make brownies, and play Trouble and read books and play Candyland and, and, and...

I think Tyler feels jealous of Derek, so it's important to spend time with him whenever possible.  He sees how much attention Derek gets with all of his therapy and actually WANTS to have therapy himself.  He has told me before that he wishes he had autism so that I'd spend more time with him.  He doesn't understand.  Yet.  That's why days like today are so important.
