Let me introduce you to I-Pod

Let me take this opportunity to introduce you to I-Pod. Have you ever seen the movie Radio? Well, if you have not than I highly recommend going out and renting it as soon as you can. It is an amazing movie about a very sweet man that is disabled and lives in a time and town that are not understanding of his disabilities. As the movie continues you see him win over the entire town. When he first met the coach he had a radio with him, his obsession, and that is what the coach proceeded to call him since he did not know his name. Even after learning his name everyone called him Radio as a nick name. Well, here is our sweet modern day version of Radio. Collin LOVES his little child's I-Pod that plays classical music. He takes it with him EVERY where that he goes. It is his friend and he is happy to see it after a long day at school. It calms him when he is in an uncomfortable situation. He wins over total strangers as they watch him laughing and smiling to the beautiful notes that comes out as he listens to all of the great melodies of his classical music. So, he is our little I-Pod. A sweet amazing little boy that LOVES music. He has a way of touching everyone that he meets and breaks down walls and stereotypes of what "one of those kids" are really like. I am so grateful for the constant sound of music in our home!!!

That is soooo cute and made me smile. For Caleb it is his little portable DVD player with the WIGGLES always the WIGGLES!!! He likes the theme songs of all of Holdens shows but then goes back to his shows. People always tell me they hate the wiggles and why would a grown man do that, well for whatever reason they do it I will be deeply indebted to them for the rest of my life. They have calmed him down in most of his extreme difficulties. I may just have to steal you idea for a post, most of our pictures out in public, Caleb has his DVD player.
