The cutest thing happened last night.
Paul, Rebecca, and I were all sitting on the couch. I was talking on the phone with Rachel, Paul was playing on his Kindle until his turn to talk to her, and Rebecca had her headphones on, watching something on her Kindle.
I became aware of Rebecca reaching for my right hand and Paul saying something to me about Rebecca wanting both of us to put our hands on our hearts for some reason.
Well, I looked over at her Kindle and realized that she was listening to a piece of music from an album of patriotic songs. The piece of music?
The Star-Spangled Banner.
So there we all sat, hands over our hearts until the song (which only Rebecca could hear) was over.
I couldn’t stop laughing over the cuteness and the sweetness of it all.
And it was yet another reminder of how blessed we have been to have a child with Down syndrome in our lives. How many other 17-year-olds would just matter-of-factly make sure that everyone paid respect when the National Anthem – unbeknownst to them – was being played on a tiny device in their living room?
For us, it was just another day with Rebecca 😊
