It has been a while since I have posted on here, and for that I apologize. If you know me or have read my most recent published articles, you know that September was kind of a big deal for me and my family.
My oldest child started kindergarten on September 1st, after months of planning and prepping and IEP-ing with the school district. This was not an easy day for mama. As I watched that bus pull away I was so proud, yet I felt so vulnerable. My “heart” rode off with an anxious smile on her face, ready to embark on a new adventure.
She had a great day and has had 41 more great days since then. Together, we have adjusted into a new routine. Although there is always work to be done as a special needs parent, things are going very well.
Less than a week after my “baby” girl started kindergarten, my actual baby boy turned one. How did this happen? It has been a whole year since I labored my little man into the world on Labor Day 2015?!? Time really does fly. It is truly hard to believe. It is so rewarding, but a little sad, to watch him get so big so quickly. Even though he is on the verge of toddler-hood, I will keep him as my baby as long as I can.
Now, you can probably see why I have been little distracted and a lot emotionally exhausted over the past few months. As we have settled into our new normal, I have started submitting more articles for publication and hope to post here more regularly.
I would love to hear from you in the comments! Knowing someone is actually reading this will be great motivation for me to keep on writing.
See you all again soon!
