I am testing the blog fates....
October 23 is our gotcha day. The day my world and life as I knew it changed forever. I have changed and grown in ways I didn't even think possible. All because my warrior child forced me. Dragging me kicking and screaming with her as she has changed and grown into such a beautiful young lady. This year will mark 5 years that I have been blessed to be her mom.
Every year her traumaversary has started around August 1st and proceeded to be
You can read about traumaversaries here, here, and here.
This year we are one week away and they haven't started yet. Do you hear the heavens singing????
Is it because I've been reminding her almost daily that her traumaversary was coming up so she needed to get ready to start having tantrums?
or because we're hooping almost daily? More about that here.
or because we did the commitment ceremony in June? Read about that here and here. Tissue alert.
or because of all the tapping? (I've written so much about tapping I can't pick just a couple so use the search in the sidebar.)
or because she's been here five years and she's starting to believe that I'm not going to bail on her?
or because of niacin? More here, and here.
or all of the above????
Honestly, I just don't know.
I do know that I am so proud of her and of me. Because this parenting trauma gig hasn't been easy.
We've had to fight our way to love and every step of the journey has been so worth it. Every tear, lost friendship, every minute of therapy, every everything. Worth it baby.
I wouldn't change a thing. We're living Life in the Grateful House.
