Holidays are nearly over and for the first time ever I’m not jumping up with glee. Mind you, I am looking forward to back to school and having routine again.
So what’s the difference?
There has been a lack of the usual meltdowns and instead there has been interesting conversations, compliance and just general enjoyment. My little man has come a long way and is maturing into a lovely young man. My vision for him has been raised where it’s now time to stop underestimating him.
I can’t tell you how good that makes me feel.
These holidays became all about Star Wars
This visit to the river was unreal as I’d never seen my boy have so much fun swimming. He was ducking his head under water and trying to look for the city underwater.
This day was great, while Jason and I were getting immersed in mud Zach was off making his own connections with the community.
Even on a day trip there was lovely behaviour from the back seat. There were a few “are we there yets” but no too bad.
OMG he even cracked a whip
This day we had a lovely cafe date. I was so relaxed and nothing was a big deal.
look at that smile
Again, another coffee date where there was conversation and lovely interactions.
With so many lovely moments this holiday I am not worn out and for that I am totally grateful. Something is different and I shall cherish it. I look forward to this year and I know within my guts my son is going to be okay.
