So far today is a good day.
His teacher said he did much better today. While walking to the car I went to grab his elbow (we can't hold hands anymore - he told me yesterday "you feel Irish and I'm American" -- at least I'm my true nationality now - before he said, "you feel Chinese") -- he said, "no mommy I want to hold your hand". It felt like someone gave me a winning lottery ticket. The hand holding lasted 15 seconds. That was just fine with me.
