- I can't remember the last time I played with Matthew and didn't try to incorporate a therapy trick. I have a few hours with him in the mornings before he goes to school, and I have been trying to make a concerted effort to just play and not think about working on his fine motor, gross motor, or speech. I can't help myself though. I sat down to play trains, and immediately asked Matthew to make the train sound, like we have at therapy so many times. Habit.
- I am enjoying the quiet every day for a few hours when all 3 kids are at school but am quickly coming to the realization that I have to get back in the classroom. My teaching makes our home life a bit more crazy, but it makes me feel like me.
- I have had so many false starts to get healthy again (after the craziness of our transition this year, I fell off the wagon, hard). I know how to be healthy--eat right, exercise-- but just cannot seem to get back up on the wagon for a prolonged period of time. I need to get back on it!
- It took Jackson a year to earn his glow up light saber-- a year to get one entire week without time outs. He loves that light saber and he earned it! And it was the only thing we lost in the move. :( Thankfully I found a replacement this past weekend.
