There is a little boy in Paul`s preschool class who cries every day at school and on the bus. I am not sure what his disability is but he really has issues with the whole school thing. Paul talks about him almost every day. Today they are having a Valentines party in the classroom. They are playing games and making cards for military personal. I was talking to Paul about the day and I am certain that he does not understand what a party is but he does understand that this supposed to be a special day at school. When I put him on the bus he was chattering as usual and what he said to that little boy was a valentine treat for me.
"Don`t cry its okay to come to the heart party cuz you my friend, just don`t cry, okay, you can hold my backpack and have all the treats in there".
The little boy was holding Paul`s backpack and he was not crying when the bus left.
