Today, after music therapy, Max's music therapist Ms. Laura presented Max with an award. When it struck me it was his first earned award, tears pricked at my eyes. It says, "Good Work Max Keep It Up" presented by Ms. Laura.
Max was pretty proud of his award. Especially as she told him why he was getting the award. Because he works so hard, even if he's tired, or not feeling well, he always does good work in music. He even blew her a few kisses. Such a little sweetheart.
We had to hurry to school time as soon as music was finished, and Max wanted to take his award into his school room with him. When his teacher came in, she saw Max's award and congratulated him on receiving it. Again, he was proud!
It was such a simple thoughtful act of kindness from his music therapist. And, we reached another first today, a week before his 9th birthday, Max received his first award!
