I Love My Husband
Most men could not put up with my messy ways, hard head and strong opinions, but God sent me a special man. We rarely fight, we are passionate in discussions sometimes, but we respect each other and things work their way out. Number One Son is not writing well, despite two years of occupational therapy and he is just starting to read. Yesterday at Cub Scouts, hubby was embarrassed for Number One Son because he couldn't do what was asked of him at Cub Scouts. Hubby helped him and Number One Son was very proud of what he did. Our discussion was about what was best for Number One Son, how could he learn in our messy home and we need to might need to re-think homeschooling. It did frighten me a little bit. I'm not ready to give up. We are really just beginning. The big thing that I've learned so far is that all children learn at their own pace, especially children who are blessed with challenges of poor concentration and poor fine motor skills. I pray daily for God to give me the gift of patience and thank God for blessing us with such wonderful gifts. I am additionally thankful for Number One Son's positive attitude and that other children see him for the beautiful person he is. We really can't ask for more than that. When we walk into a room, he is like a Rock Star, all the children say, "Hi Number One Son." or "Number One Son is here!" I can't believe that traditional school would be good for him, how could it? He'd be in trouble all the time for talking and he'd be away from the other kids for special help in writing and reading. I'm a product of that, it took a long time for me to move beyond that, I'm really not sure that I ever have.
