Okay, like I said yesterday, I am amazed every day by how much my little guy is learning and implementing. Well, last night he hit me with another one. So, every night the last thing we do is snuggle. This used to be for extended periods of time that are now whittled down to just a couple of minutes, give or take, and we talk. Sometimes it’s longer if we have lots to talk about and sometimes it’s literally just enough time to satisfy his need for snuggling. Little Drake (my little nickname for him) has regularly been asking if his father will be in school on his social skills group night and every time I have to say yes. This week Big Drake just has to hand in a paper and is free, so I said he was going to come. LD got so excited and informed me that he was going to, and this gets tricky to relay here because he can’t express himself well yet and his exact words are nowhere what they should have been. He basically expressed that he was going to introduce us as, “Mr. & Mrs. Dragon (insert surname, the real one here). I definitely was NOT going to remind him that I’ve been there the whole time and have been speaking with the supervisor and interns on a weekly basis. I just told him that I was looking forward to it. His smile was bright and his eyes were big.
I’m just so proud of my little man!
About dragonmommieI am a wife and mother of an amazing eight year old boy. When school starts, I don the hat of “advocate”. This is very new to me and so, like everything else in my life right now, a necessary transition. I can see already that I will be honing my communication skills as well as sharpening my assertiveness. I am married to an amazing man, who, spoils me to no end. Not in a material way... NO I'm wrong. When he can, he does spoil me materially as he is well acquainted with my infatuation and love all electronic gadgets. I am a self professed EGG, “Electronic Gadget Groupie.” The most important way he spoils me is with taking over attending to our son's needs. My eye has always been caught by sparkly things, the beautiful, and the unique.
