No rest for the weary tomorrow either... We are venturing into Sioux City for a MOPS meeting in the morning, then traveling to Vermillion for Ella and Charlie's 15 month and 4 year check up. I'm sure they will test Ella for RSV and try to coax me into being admitted since she has a tiny sniffly nose... (Love our overly cautious Dr--seriously I do!!!) And if Ella thought she might get some relief after that, just wait... she still has OT to look forward to on Thursday!
I'm not a special needs mama looking for pity. I don't want anyone to feel bad for us. (Although if anyone does and would like to drop by a meal or a bottle of wine we usually eat around 5:30) Kidding!!! Kindof... :)
Life is often hectic. The sheer number of doctor appointments, in-home therapies, phone calls to insurance companies and government agencies, forms to fill out... it's often overwhelming.
Tonight I was feeling exhausted just thinking about our busy week and the things I need to get done. I was playing 'So Big' with Ella and all of a sudden, for the very first time she put her own short little arms up in the air to show me how 'big' she was. I thought my heart would explode with joy... Ella ran screaming and giggling into the kitchen to show Daddy (Okay, maybe that was me... but she was really proud of herself too!)
The Dr. appointments, all the miles traveled, all the hours on the phone with insurance companies, all the frenzied minutes spent
Every. single. milestone
