And just like that, it’s Thursday! Hard to believe that the weekend is almost upon us. I know I haven’t been on the blog in a few days. I’ve been trying to focus on some other issues happening right now.
I think that I mentioned last week that JJ would be seeing the pediatrician soon. Well, we went on this past Tuesday. He’s pretty healthy for the most part. The pediatrician did mention that his bmi was on the leaner side for kids his age but nothing to be overly concerned about. I was thankful for that.
However, what she (and I) was worried about was JJ’s lack of verbal communication skills. He failed his communications test but passed the comprehension part. So, we are off to see a specialist for an official evaluation and diagnosis. Talk about being a scared parent. The last thing I want is for JJ to have a permanent learning disability.
Not being able to talk and properly express himself can be a huge issue, especially as he gets older. It’s challenging sometimes now because there are times he’ll cry and I can’t understand what he’s trying to tell me is the matter. I am thankful that I’m not in denial about this issue because I have read stories from other moms who were and waited years before getting help.
I am thankful to the pediatrician for listening to me and my concerns. She is genuinely as concerned as I am about getting him back on track. Having a pediatrician who stays onbthe same page with me when it comes to my kid’s health is super important.
I am thankful for my new phone! I am back being Team Android as I mentioned on Monday. I have come to peace with having lost all almost all of my photos on my iPhone. I am thankful that it won’t happen again because I have a memory card that my phone stores my pictures and videos to now.
I am thankful to be one step closer to re-opening Moo’s Closet. I kind of took a break from it but I am back. We need the extra money right now. We’ll need a second car since I’ll be taking JJ to speech therapy and we won’ t know the time or days until after his evaluation.
Also, I have been talking about finding a way to give back on a regular basis and found a way to do that with Moo’s Closet. More on that later. But I am thankful for the chance to continue being a blessing to others.
Most importantly, I am thankful for all the support I have been getting from you guys. Your prayers and kind words are truly welcomed and appreciated!
What are you thankful for this week?
