Had a good morning. I heard Sarah get up but she just turned her light on and played in her room, giving me time to make coffee and pee before she came out. Ron got up shortly after. Tyler came over early and woke Jamie up. We exchanged our few things (barely shopped this year) and Ron cooked breakfast (gave himself a nice bacon grade burn on his arm). Tyler and Jamie played Trivia Crack on her tablet, I played some music on Spotify and Ron tried desperately to get friends on Candy Crush to open a new level. 😛 Sarah was back ands fourth between her room and the livingroom playing with her new trucks. I got some beef stew going in the crockpot for dinner later. Jamie got picked up by her dad around 11:30 and Tyler left to spend time and have lunch with his dad and Rachael. I have the Muppets Christmas Carol playing on Netflix right now but noone’s watching it. Sarah’s being such a good girl. She’s so calm lately and just so sweet. Nice relaxing day.

It isn't easy being the parent of a child with special needs (youngest of three kids), let alone being in my mid - 40's. I have my ups and downs. I try to do all I can for her but I’ve put my life and goals on hold several times and I’ve realized I have to do things for myself to be the best I can be for her. I have times when I feel like she is the best thing in my life because she taught me unconditional love and patience. But I also go through bouts of feeling like a wedge has been placed between myself and my dreams and I feel hopeless. These are some of my thoughts, goals, achievements, rants and breakdowns as Sarah’s mom.
