So when Joey and his brother Tim were little, we set up a back yard Easter egg hunt.
Tim put dutiful effort into finding the plastic, candy filled eggs.
Joey? He took autistic delight in finding just one egg, and throwing it to the ground repeatedly because he liked the sound.
Care giving requires a sense of humor, because those in our care can take over events very quickly.
Some things you would like to do just aren’t gonna fly; some things you try go in unexpected directions.
We will be coloring real eggs on Easter Sunday, while Joey watches movies. Don’t know that he would get a kick out of throwing eggs these days, but we’re not taking any chances.
Whatever your traditions might be, we wish you all the best as you celebrate.
