Gratitude post for day #3…Today I am feeling grateful for 2 things. First, that Jacob has friends. That probably sounds like a no-brainer to some people, but it isn’t. Jacob is an introvert, has some sensory issues, and wears glasses and walks differently. And he never really bonded with his daycare friends early on, at least not enough that we wanted to do playdates. Add in that we were so tired the first couple of years (more on that later in the year), and the neighbourhood didn’t produce automatic peers, and the result was that he didn’t have a lot of “friends”. School helped change that, and he has a friend coming over tomorrow. Today, one of Mommy’s friends came over and brought her son Conlin. Jacob was SOOOO excited and loves to have visitors.
I’m also grateful for a garage. I had to scrape the car a couple of times today when I was out and about, and that was the first time this year. » Read the rest
