I have had a rough couple of weeks, emotionally. I have put my poor little mind through a loop of self doubt. This week, however, I have a lot to be cheerful about, mostly my boys doing. So my 1, 2, 3 is dedicated to each one!
KJ (The Teen)
This week he has had a few days work experience, with a special needs nursery within a children's centre. I am so proud of him. He loved what he did, his only disappointment is that he couldn't do more hours! He has always had the ability to see beyond a child's complex, or special, needs. For a boy of 15 this is unusual........we are all thinking it!? He really is growing up to be a superb young man, that I have a lot of respect for.
RJ (The Tween)
Not only has my bubbly 10 year old joined in with the school drama clubs stage musical this week. He has also learnt to ride a bike, all on his own! I often have discussions with other parents who have paid for lessons, for their children, in swimming etc. I always say the same thing, there's no point for RJ, he will not learn anything until HE is ready. When he is, he teaches himself. This week he proved my point........he actually learnt to ride his bike in 4 hours! Spent the rest of the week just riding around the village.
AJ (The Little One)
This week he finishes the early years. I am not going to lie this makes me excruciatingly horrifyingly a little bit sad. I have shed a tear or 2. I know his year 1 teacher, she is another wonderful, patient teacher. But I want him to stay in reception!! He has developed so much this year, far beyond even my expectations.
So there are my reasons to be cheerful!
Add to those, 6 weeks of lie ins, hubby having the next 4 days off and me buying a new living room carpet, which my 'master of all trades' hubby will lay!
Do you have any happy thoughts this week? Or you could just pop along another of the linkers and read theirs! Smile people its finally summer!
