There are so many thoughts running around my head. I don’t even know if I will find the right words to express all that I feel. I started this blog to help me vent, share, purge etc. I just need a place to let out some of what I feel and experience everyday. I don’t have much of a support system outside of my husband so I’m hoping this will help me to feel connected. I’ll just assume that someone is reading this and understands what I’m saying.
I will start slow and easy. Today got off to a good start. By my standards that means … no melt downs before heading off to school and I got to work on time. I even had time to get coffee at Dunkin Donuts. Amazing I tell ya!!! Now, meltdowns are typically associated with a child who has autism but in my case I also have a 4 yr old who struggles with understanding his 3 yr old brothers behaviour and doesn’t quite understand why his brother doesn’t get in trouble for exhibiting what seems to be “bad” behaviour. So there’s hardly a morning that goes by without 1 or both of them giving me a hard time about something.
By the way, I’m Jamaican so my way of spelling behaviour is the British way. You’ll see it when I write words like colour or neighbourhood also. 🙂 Moving on …
So this morning there were no meltdowns by Jay and also no fussing or whining from my 4 yr old Ace.
That’s a win for everyone!!! More interesting stories to follow. I promise. Maybe tomorrow I’ll write about last night. It wasn’t a good one for me. I was feeling very sorry for myself but then mornings like today happen and I’m once again feeling like we will all be ok.
