Yesterday was a bit of insanity around here. I left the house at 7:15 to help prepare for Jake’s class’ Veterans’ Breakfast. I didn’t get home again until 11:40, after I had picked Cole up from preschool. Tate’s ABA therapist had been in a car wreck on Tuesday, and she cancelled both Tuesday and Thursday sessions, so I had Tate for a few hours on Thursday afternoon. He was dysregulated. He was distracted. Thankfully, I was able to get him to do some homework, but he wanted my undivided attention. Most things around the house fell to the wayside.
So, enough of my “excuses”. I will do my “Thankful Thursday” on Friday. This week, I am thankful for this:
As of November 5, 2012, Cole is developing at a “typical” rate as compared to like-age peers. He is “typical”. As the letter states above, “There are no significant concerns at this time.” I showed this letter to Hubz last night. I asked if I could frame it. This is a first for us.
I am thankful for the preschool screening program that our school district offers. I am thankful that Cole was able to perform “typically” on the screening. I am thankful that my gut was right..and that he is a mostly “typical” kid. I know that at some point in his life, Cole may end up needing something. Or maybe not. For today, I savor the fact that I don’t have to worry more than usual…and endure more testing. I can breathe. And that is a beautiful thing…
