Well ok then…

April 12, 2011

Here we go again. Tried getting Samantha to school this am and lo and behold – major tantrum. Crying, screaming – really hard time. I think that our huge playdate yesterday and a very busy weekend contributed to her having a meltdown. I started into negotiation mode which quickly led to yelling mode and then I quit. If this is what she needs then this is what she needs. She stayed home. My youngest had a playdate and that was a nice breather.

I am finding myself constantly doubting my decisions – should I have brought her kicking and screaming to school? Should I have continued fighting? I never know what the right answer is – and that is the really hard part – there is no right answer. We are all just doing the best we can with what we have right now, at this moment. Aren’t we? The blessing that special needs has given to me is to realize just that. Like Maya Angelou says – when we know better, we do better.

I am glad that you are joining me in my journey to see what this blog thing develops into. My hope is that it will help you understand that you are not alone in your struggles – whether you have typically developing kids, no kids, crazy animals or special needs kids. We are all in this together. We need to support each other in our struggles. Be there for each other – in love and kindness.
