"J" Time

I've been expecting full blown regression from J during this transition of Special K. I haven't seen any. She hasn't blown a tire or anything. It appears that she has again reached another level of healing. I had PRN meds on hand in case she needed them to cope. Truly impressed with how she's handled everything and meds have not been necessary.

Not sure if it's from all the preparation that we did or what but I am truly grateful.

Yesterday she had a great time with Daddy G while SK & I were managing appointments. As soon as G brought her back she announced that she now understood why I needed "mom" time and she thought it was going to be really important for her to have "J" time. I understand Honey Bunny...

Wow! J is so amazing. Our 9-year old RADish (who now likes to describe himself as almost a non-RAD kid!! not sure his dad and I agree, but we are getting there!) has started to need his own time from our 7-year old too. Maybe there's something about being 9 and having a sibling who's enough younger than you to sometimes be at a different developmental stage. Whatever. He recently expressed understanding of my need to get what he called "a break" too, just like J did for you! So wonderful to see they're thinking of what they need (and feeling worthy of it, gosh darn it!!!) and at the same time thinking from another person's perspective. I cherish these moments; they are what keep me most motivated, although the regressions are also quite motivating but in a whole 'nother way!

Can you point me in the direction of some things you did to prepare?
