Just a quick check in to let you know we are all doing well. Stink’s tics have subsided – they always do – and I can’t say much of anything has changed other than we are being a bit stricter on his gluten/free dairy free diet as well as being more consistent with his sleep and supplements.
I have also been so busy myself that I haven’t really had time to obsess over it. We’ve had Mad Men themed teacher appreciation days, Mothers Day, family visiting from out of town, ballet and sports class…on and on.
I always say it, but when we can’t fix the tics, it’s so important to fix ourselves.
I love my life right now.
I love my home where we have kids over almost every day of the week.
I love my goofy son and my always practical and sensible daughter.
I love my kids’ school where my babies have formed amazing friendships, as have I. This is a truly Wonder Years time for us and I will forever be changed by the experience.
I love my husband who works so hard for us and is really growing as a father and friend.
I love that we have a neighborhood dog that pads across the street every day at 5 and barks to be let in.
I love that my mom went through a hard six months but is getting stronger every day.
I love that I’m starting to get that I’m not the fixer of the universe.
I am Andrea.
And some days, that is enough.
Love you all.
