Yesterday a new little boy started at our HE group and for the first time *ever* Sam actually played with another child!!  (not counting his older brother and sisters LOL)  They ran around together, played playdo while chatting away, read books together.  I could have wept, I felt so emotional.  The little boy was just 3 so was quite a lot younger and his language skills were better than Sam’s but they really enjoyed playing together.  Sam’s little eager, happy face as they ran round together was wonderful to see.  (bringing a tear to my eye thinking of it!)

And last night I started making Sam a new sock monkey and he’s become so attached to it.  He’s been holding it ever since, took it to bed, tucked him in.  It’s the first time he’s been attached to anything, and is really something.  He’s called it Jim (which is the name of the little boy from the HE group!).

To dare is to lose ones footing temporarily, to not dare is to lose oneself.
