The party was a big success. His dad showed up, for one thing. Lots of presents. All family (no peer group)—Matthew helped serve the cake and poured the Mountain Dew Voltage (his beverage of choice) for everyone and passed them out. Besides his dad, there was an aunt and uncle, us, and Grandma. He was very happy. Six bright balloons, a Batman cake. He did not have any meltdowns or even near meltdowns. Those of you who have been sending good wishes and prayer—–THANK YOU!!!
