hapee

Evan got mad today.

But he kept his cool.

And picked up a pen.

"I am mad not hapee."

I pointed to the picture on the left, the "mad face."

"And is that okay?" I asked. He looked at me. "Yes....?" he responded, not quite confident. "Yup. Mad is okay. And you're still in control of your body. And that's great." I gave his shoulder a squeeze and slid the rest of the marker bin over to him. He picked out his colors and moved on.

Lesson Learned:
Progress. Real. Good. Progress.
