If you were to take a photo, of my life
one year ago,
they'd be unrecognizable as the same family......
WE Haven't changed, as much as every other single thing about our lives has. We moved, Mike's back to work(at a job he really likes), I'm THE (only) finisher at my job, my teeth sure look better :-),, and we are HAPPY , honestly happy after some very big struggles & issues......
I have SOOOO much to be thankful for,,, and I truly do NOT take it for granted.
Last week, I worked mon-weds early/late every day,,,,, I was gone for two hours, in the middle of the day, to go to the "mental health evaluation"
When I got there, I was waiting for at least 15mins,,,,,
then , the "specialist" gets there, pretty much immediately,they take my son into another room, with the "assistant teacher"
So, the teacher leads me into a room the specialist lady is already sitting in, along with the "director" of the center, and another teacher/assistant I did not know. I was thinking,,,,
I thought this was an evaluation???
I was on my lunch break, so I'm pretty much covered in primer and paint.... I did TRY and clean up, but they are ALL looking at the paint, all up and down my forearms.
It was tense, I was nervous, these four "professionals" and ME, at a table to talk about ALL the problems/issues with MY son.......
So the specialist starts off by saying that she's been observing him since he started there, and he's definitely made improvements, with following along as the other kids do, and all that.......
My lil guy is asleep at the moment,
but I KNOW he's been missing his mommy very much, the last week or so,
and it's not going to be ANY BETTER until after the 1st..............
When he wakes up I'm taking him to the PARK!!!
the sun is out today, even though it's cold, NO RAIN, and WE are going to do something with it!!!
Leaving you with a picture of his FIRST birthday, and his FIRST christmas :-)
~~~ Technically, it's his SECOND Christmas, he was just nine days old,
