Today was actually sunny, reminding yesterday I looked over our swimming pool and thought to myself, I just wanted to lay out and do nothing, Right? Can I be bold enough to take all the kids, yes but do I really want to? Was that wrong for me to think that way? Was the water even warm enough because anyone who knows me, I cannot regulate my temperature so anything below 85 degrees is cold. sad, right? David, says I am crazy needing water that warm...wishful thinking! Well today, the swimming pool challenge did not happen, this is true because it is Tuesday. Another jammed packed day, therapy this the morning, along with a scheduled regional center meeting, IEP meeting and then our weekly trip to the Children's Hospital for OT and Speech but before all of that I actually managed to wake up before my little's.
With that said, I managed to have an interrupted shower then to my surprise was able to have a telephone call with a friend this morning - adult conversation. As trivial as this may sound to some of you, it is something that I cannot take for granted because my me time is very limited, I even was able to do my hair, a rare occasion these days. The three things I mention may be clock work for some of you reading this but for me it is not always easy fitting those things in on any giving day. Trying to take a shower without a little crying, one banging on the shower door or even better yet having the strength to shower because of my own disability of RSD. Really it is easier to put my wet hair up into a pony tail and be done, blow drying takes a lot of energy as my hands fall a sleep. The icing on the cake, adult conversation without a crying child, priceless. I know it sound like I am whining and I am...just for a moment, lol, I am finished now. Thank you for the moment!
Really now for all you Mommy's and Daddy's who go through the same thing day in and day out...here is to you! We are all in our own worlds, just trying to get through the day. Trying to make the right choices, be a great caregiver, clean house, make dinner, grocery shop, pay bills, work, relax (maybe), have fun, you name it, we are all doing it in our own way. All I know I just want to feel I am doing the right thing. Believe and Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do. - Benjamin Spock GOD BLESS
