A family friend who is a Joey favorite came over to hang with him last night so Melissa and I could go out for a few hours.
The sitter’s report was that Joey had come out of his room to get a drink, then went back in and shut his bedroom door. Totally ignored our friend all night.
But she was delighted – “He was just like any teenager” was her review. She described the door shutting as “a breakthrough” into typical behavior.
In other news, our anti-social cat came out and stayed in the room with our guest present.
So progress was in the air at our place last night. Wish we could claim some planning and design, but it just showed up.
