Busy Weekend

Thanks for all the face b o o k support. I feel so much less alone now.

It's been a weekend on speed. J was a speedy girl and finished all her Saturday chores on Friday in anticipation of a play date with another friend with RAD. Both girls did very well during the entire 2 hours. Then I waited for the fallout. You know the one.....If you have too much fun you have to have a meltdown to prove you didn't deserve to have so much fun. It didn't happen. She successfully navigated the rest of the day and through today, as well.

Daddy G bought her a new bike for home so that she could take her bike from home to the lake and leave it there. She had been riding her itty bity bike at the lake and it had finally gotten to the point that it was impossible. So that one is waiting in the garage for the next pink princess. He also got her some new shoes. The child has gone from a 2 to a 5 in 2 months! What the heck?!? At this rate her feet are going to be bigger than mine. And that's saying something!

Last night she watched the School House Rock America DVD and held it together! Yay hoo! It was so cool because afterwards she was asking questions about the Electoral College and the making of a Bill. She also enjoyed recognizing the Statue of Liberty, Capitol Hill, and the White House.

She couldn't wait to get home and ride her new bike. She rode in the freezing cold from 2 to 6, only coming in for dinner.

This mom is a pooped puppy and she's going to bed!

I'm so happy to hear how well she's doing! And it's so great how smart and curious she is, too. Seriously... that kid is going places.

Enjoy some well-deserved rest!

Glad you had a great weekend.

Oh, BTW, hee-hee-hee, I'd like to know your definition of "in the freezing cold." :D

My kids got Schoolhouse Rock for Christmas and love watching it. They just think it's so funny.

I'm glad the two of you had such a great weekend.

Yay for recognizing the capitol building, etc.!

I know some shameful full-grown adults who probably can't do that! lol

I am so happy to hear of J's successes! You both have overcome such tremendous trials! You both should be very proud - I know I am!

I am so glad J is doing so well. I was telling someone about you and your journey (and how amazing you are) the other day. You and J give so many other people hope for their hurt children. Thank you again for sharing your life with us. :)

Maybe Dobbie the house elf has RAD. Another self punisher there. So glad she held it together and I bet the exercise helped her sleep well.
