Monday Musings about My Life…

This is youngest in one of the cool polos Top Golf provided for him to wear at his new job there! He also has a black polo and a super nice black lined jacket.

He’s polishing silverware, folding napkins and bundling the silverware into rolls. And he absolutely loves it so far. Apparently people stop by and say hi all the time, his boss gave him a certificate for a free meal there (and he gets to golf for free), and he loves the music they play…

My new job is being the mom bus driving him a couple times a week when he works. He applied for a reduced rate bus pass and through our township, we can arrange for a van to take him to and from work at a fairly reasonable cost. Don’t want to throw too many changes at him at once so we will start that soon.

Bottom line, as anyone with a special needs child knows, if he’s happy, then I’m happy!

  1. Your last sentence says it all. We’re in the process of getting my special needs kiddo ready to take his written test to get his drivers permit. You’re right though. If they’re happy, it’s all good. Hope he continues enjoying the new gig. It’s Top Golf! How could he not? 😃😃
