I struggle at times with being a good Mom to Jimmy. Can I give him what he needs? Is how much we love him enough to help him overcome his deficits? Is everything going to always be so hard for him to master?
There are then other times I am simply amazed by this child of mine. Today we had one of those moments and I cherish it.
It was bath time and J walked into the bathroom took off his pants and pull-up, then he put the potty seat on the toilet and climbed up. He sat there for 2 minutes and then I took him off for his bath. I knew he did not have to go. I told him good job for all he had done. It just simply amazed me that he had all those steps down. We only really started training yesterday.
I know I am Jimmy's mom for a reason and I love him to pieces but the inner struggles I deal with are deep. I am really and truly insecure about it all.
I am really trying to take joy in the little things he does that show me he does get some of it.
Today was a nice day with the family, the four of us watched the Daytona 500 and none of our drivers were contenders in the end but what an exciting race watching Trevor Bayne win in only his second Sprint cup start. A feel good story.
Catch you all on the flip side.
