Some Good News
It seems easy to get caught up in all the negative. Easy to focus on the hard spots in raising kids. Today we had a session with Holland's therapist. She really made me take note of how much his behavior has improved. When she asked me to name the things that he was doing well, things that he's had a good attitude about, I had no trouble coming up with great examples of how he's doing at coping with change or frustrating situations. I also had some great examples of how his memory is improving. How he had remembered, when no one else could, where Romania had left his glasses. How he can fold an 8-step paper airplane without looking at the directions. His mood is just generally happier. It's nice to have Holland back.
