This week has been about re-discovering and the small things. Taking each day and moment as they come and trying to control what I can and nothing else. Let me tell you something it was a pretty good week.
I worked out Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I drank all the water I planned to and limited my consumption of diet soda. It was all about making good choices for me.
I also decided to myself that J is never going to be like other kids so I need to embrace how he is and take him as he comes. I also decided I need to find out more answers about how to help him. I am looking into a developmental pediatrician.
It still makes me sad that he really doesn't talk and play like other kids but I am finding joy in the moments he does call me Mom or when he wants a hug from me or he asks for help by grabbing my hand. I am learning to live in what I call the World According to Jimmy.
One of the things that I rediscovered this week is that when I work out every day I am a happy a person. So I am continuing my goal of drinking all my water and working out at least 4 days per week.
The other thing I rediscovered is that I am extremely lucky to have a great husband who gets me no matter what and takes me warts and all. Just wish we had time for a little date with out the kids now and then but I am sure we will eventually figure that one out.
Well tomorrow is Saturday and I am hoping for the energy to do something fun and creative.
Catch you on the flip side.
