After the wonderful test results from Bubs’ nine months of OT, both the OT and I were sure that he would test out of OT after one year. Being the beginning of Sept, Miss W. did the Developmental Test with Bubs to see where ee stood. To our surprise, he either stayed the same or went down on the scoring. We are shocked. This said, we will be doing another year of OT.
Not what I had planned…today I stepped out of Women’s Ministry at our church. My husband and I talked last night about what I could give up. Women’s Ministry is really my only elective. Truly, it isn’t about me having to “give up” something because that is what Mommy’s do. We put aside our own desires to give our kiddos what they need.
But, the only reason that I signed up for WM – and was possibly going to lead a group – was that we were sure Bubs would test out.
I found that today I was short with Bubs. Frustrated as we worked on school stuff because he wasn’t learning things as quickly as I would like. Frustrated because – frankly, I am frustrated. We work and yet here we are backtracking.
This afternoon I put the other kiddos down for naps and pulled my Bubs up on the couch with his new Your Big Backyard magazine. He cuddled up closely as we read about the different animals of God’s creation. More learning occurred in this time of loving than all of the time of school that we had done today.
Dear Lord, help me to keep the mainpoint the mainpoint.
