We have moved and unpacked, well kind of....
This has been a challenging week and has also been full of new starts, ideas, and pathways for both myself and my son that I am very excited about. I have also come to understand that kids are kids and if I could establish solid relationships in one place I can do it again and again. I am going to have to teach my butt off but, it will be so fun. It is amazing how distance can empower and make you feel more in control.
There are a lot things to figure out here but I am going to do it with a new perspective.
I am not going to let my thoughts scare and intimidate me into not trying new things or being successful. My lizard brain will not win this one.
On another note...
My little boy is already showing signs of being different in only a week. Some good, some bad. He has been through a lot already and is going though even more now. I hope one day I am as tough and resilient while being as lovable and happy as anyone can be. He is truly a great little guy.
One funny story...
Yesterday I was putting together his bed while he was downstairs playing. I would check on him to make sure things were ok. I screwed in a side board and peeked out. Everything seemed to be fine but, as I looked closer I noticed something. HE WAS NAKED from the waist down. When I asked why he had no pants on he looked at me and said, " I spilled on them." It seems that when we spill something on ourselves the right thing to do is just take that piece of clothes immediately.
If this were true however I would end most meals with my shirt off.
Take Care and have a good week.
