Thanks in 30 challenge - Day 2

Day 2
Today was a big day in our house. Cayden has dealt with some digestive issues since he was a baby. We have worked with his pediatrician and tried all sorts of things - mainly natural, dietary changes - and have struggled for the past 4 years with finding a balance of things that work for him. When it came time to potty train him at 2.5, his "issues" made part of that process really difficult. Like extremely difficult. Like frequently bang my head against the wall and cry difficult. Like it has taken 2+ years to get where we are today difficult. It's been a long road BUT, I think I can safely say that we have finally found what works for him and have gotten to the point where I have longed to be with him over the past 2 years. In celebration, we took our lil' animal lover to the Rain Forrest Cafe tonight. He was over the moon excited to have a night that was all about him and not even his bday (although he did ask me if we were going to sing "Happy Birthday" to him...we sang "For He's A Jolly Good Fellow" instead). We are SSSOOOO thankful to be at this point. And I'm particularly thankful for this precious boy.
