What a week it has been. In fact March has been pretty wild. I am currently sitting at Bounce in Menlyn Maine after a meeting with them and catching up on some work and actually just getting in some calm time to try and find my balance again. Yes I realise that finding my balance at Bounce seems a little strange but we take it where we can get it.
I haven’t really written anything really personal recently so I thought it was time to stop and just catch up with you guys and share a little bit about where I am at the moment.
So where to begin? Well Cameron starts his big gala today, it is the same one we were in PE for last year. This one is a level down though as he missed qualifying for Nationals by a few split seconds. He has managed to pick up a bit of a shoulder niggle some where along the way this week but the physio and his coach aren’t too concerned, it looks like more of a knot than an actual injury so he has to just power through.
I don’t know if I am allowed to even share this so I will keep it brief, he also has his first proper girlfriend. She seems lovely and he is really taken with her. It is all new territory for me trying to figure our rules for visits and can they be alone or can’t they.
Kiara is doing so well. She really does just get on with her life. She is doing well at school which is such great news because it is her first year back in the main stream and so far her marks are either higher or the same as last year! It is her 13th this year, so in a few weeks I will have 2 teens in the house and so far it is clear that the girls hit this milestone with a lot more emotion. We have had some rather passionate outbursts recently.
Jack is the coolest kid. Seriously you guys, I love this little man to bits. He is developing the most wicked sense of humour. He has us in stitches all the time. I love talking to him about life and how he sees the world. He is doing well at school, his teacher often compliments us on him. I have to mention his massive appetite. He eats and eats and eats but is never still so I think he needs to to maintain his constant motion.
And then there is Emma. The good news is the tantrums have eased, they aren’t daily and we know now how to talk her down (for the most part). I have figured out one of her triggers is when I show Jack more attention than her, she doesn’t cope well with it and gets a little aggressive with him. She also has a pretty funky sense of humour and is insanely cute, when she wants to be. She is also doing well at school, which is also all really relative at 3 years old.
David is doing well. It has been a tough few months for him, but if his mother taught him one thing it was resilience and he just keeps on pushing through despite obstacles and challenges. Not many people would be as calm and happy as he is after the year he has had!
And finally me. Well that is probably a whole separate blog post 🙂 But basically I am good. The wheels fell off a few weeks ago, almost a month ago actually and I admitted I needed some help so my Dr gave me some happy pills and I do now feel so much more in control of things. It is the first time I have ever been on meds so perhaps there is a blog post in there about that. Speak Social is doing well and is exposing me to opportunities and experiences I never really expected. I am also finding myself outside of my comfort zone a lot more these days which is frightening but also I think, important for growth.
Now I want to hear from you guys, whats been happening with you? How are you kiddies? How are YOU?
