One of those days …

My little boy, wasn’t himself this morning.

He woke up mad.

He’s usually a happy child with loads of energy, but today he wasn’t feeling great.

Every day of the week, we follow the same routine: he wake’s up, brushes his teeth, drinks his milk, eats his breakfast, plays with his toys, plays with his puppies, if the weather is nice we go for a walk to the park and then takes a nap.

Today, was a different story, he didn’t want to eat, play or smile.

So, I made sure he was OK, no fever, no cold, not teething, nothing. Just in a bad mood.

Then, I tried everything to make him eat and smile, but nothing was working. I was a bit worried because he didn’t want to play, a mother always knows when her child is not himself. So, I took him to park for a walk.

Park during fall season

Then a big smile spread on his face, he wasn’t smiling at me. He was smiling at a beautiful dog walking in the park. He was so excited, he took my hand, so we could approach the dog. The owner of the dog, a very nice woman, let him pet her dog.

 Emma, the dog, was adorable, she liked my boy too.

I then, realized, my son was just in a bad mood this morning and he needed something like this to cheer him up!

No toy or TV show would’ve had the same effect as Emma, the dog, did.

As you can see, in the pictures below, he was running after his new friend, when they left:

Now, I feel better because he is better. He played in the park and we both loved it.

Exhausted of his big trip to the park:

    A nice walk in the park and playing with a dog would make me happier too. I am glad it proved the cure for your son.
