One Day Down

SO hard to leave those boys at day care this morning. Braeden just clung to me, so much newness about him he was very unsure. And Little One, broke my heart. We dropped him off before taking Braeden to his room. I hugged him and put him in the high chair so the worker could give him some cheerios. He was the first one in his room. He just stared at the worker and everything. After dropping Braeden off, Olivia and I headed back past Little One's room to the front door. He was just sitting in the chair. Staring. She was trying to put a Cheerio in his mouth and he held it shut. NOT like him. He actually doesn't even seem to have a stop mechanism in him when it comes to food, which I am going to be talking to his Dr about soon. It reminded me of him a couple months ago and I just prayed God help him to open up and enjoy the new toys and people.

When I picked them up we went to Braeden's room first. Through the door I could see him up on the step stool washing his hands and then going to the paper towel dispenser to dry them, just like he had always been there. His teacher said he did really well, and he had a "B" sticker on his cheek from taking a nap! Yay! We then got Little One who was strapped in the six kid stroller. They said he had a good day. I wanted to ask did he smile? Did he laugh? Did he imitate sounds? Did he practice walking? But I didn't. I don't know I wanted to hear the answers. I'll give him a few days to acclimate himself and see I'm still going to be there to pick him up every day. All the progress he's made, I just don't want this to push him into regression. He's come so far.

Had some very good news earlier in the day too. I called the eye doctor about Braeden and was able to get him an appointment for THIS Friday! Oh am I glad. Such a short time to wait!!!

Sounds like they both did good at daycare; I know it must be very hard.
As for your shower, I hear you, I hear you are hurt and I don't blame you for feeling that way at all.

That does hurt- I am glad they are finally doing it but it is late in the game.

Dropping off the first day is the worst! I am glad Braden gid well and hope Little One gets use to it- :(

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
