Quiet Time

2014-04-13-quiet-time@2x Beautiful weather outside at last, and so sensory gym was quiet today. In fact, for most of the time we were there, C and I were the only guests.

Lonely? Bored? Not at all. C was joyous, silly, and connecting like crazy. I was reminded again that this boy loves the quiet, loves the space it gives him to be himself.

Add more people, more noise, more bustle, and he just becomes much more disconnected.

It also reminded me that we need to quiet our lives, literally and figuratively. He needs it, and we need it, too.
