I'm feeling the fragility of life this week. There are a few people in my life battling the Big C and one is probably not going to win the battle. It makes me sit back and contemplate the things I have been grumbling about with a new perspective. At least I'm not looking at my three kids under five being Fatherless, one before his first birthday. It's heart breaking and really has made me try harder to play the Glad Game in my small corner of the world this week. I've been letting that slip lately.
I am also just so glad that the Workaholic is returning to the family due to the end of his job, a small break and the beginning of a much lower stress, local job. I may have to reintroduce him to the boys next week, but I'm so excited that they will get to spend some quality time with their Dad.
Now the other thing I'm Glad for this week is The Wicked Witch of Eastern Road. I know. Too weird. But her making me feel like crap made me leap into action and book the Little Man in for both his full Speech assessment and an Occupational Therapy assessment so we know exactly where his fine motor skills are. I would love for the outcome to be that he is exactly normal for his age, but unfortunately the current expectations of a good pencil grip before starting school seem to be against that. I still don't like her, but now I'm thinking that may be an advantage if it gets me moving on helping my kids!
