One of the things I have always prayed for the Happy Buddy to have is a sense of wonderment for life.
A delight in celebrating the little things!
Well, I am happy to report that one of those little things that brings the Happy Buddy so much wonder are elevators.
If we are near one, we will inevitably end up riding it for at least 15 minutes.
I’ve been so thankful that the hospital has a plentiful supply of elevators.
Some that ding, some that are huge, and some that have mirrors.
The Happy Buddy has found great comfort in his elevators this week.
So much so that he decided to recreate the elevators in our own home.
We cut out a few circles, drew some arrows, and taped them to the molding around our sliding closet door.We added floor numbers to the top of our elevator.
We pretend they light up and tell us what floor the elevator is on as we wait for it to pick us up.
And buttons on the inside so that we get to just the right place.
The only problem?
Make sure the paint on the molding around your closet will not come off because of the tape you used to hang the buttons.
When we aren’t riding the hospital elevators, you can find us on our very own Happy Home elevator.
Hours of free entertainment!
