Deep Breath

Saul has a friend over.

That may not seem like a news item, but for us it's a momentous occasion. His friend also has behavioral problems, is highly competitive and prone to sulks and rages, but on the other hand, they understand each other. Parents understand each other too. When you call to say, "I think we're done" each side knows what the other is saying. Not that there's a meltdown right now, but you need to drop everything and get over here promptly.

It's cute to be down here and hear them giggling upstairs. I wish he had more than one friend, but a good one is better than having lots of bad ones.
