Day 48 ~ May 21st, 2017
Yesterday evening because the weather was so lovely out I sat out on the bench swing with my son. The sun was setting, we were rocking, he cuddled up to me, and I sang song after song for almost thirty minutes.
In these moments there is always so much clarity for my son. What I mean when I say this is that he is the epitome of regulated (calm), he speaks in full, clear, properly structured sentences (using the right pronouns, phrased questions/statements), and holds eye contact (his gaze doesn’t stutter all over the place) so I can see it in his eyes. It’s like for a handful of minutes the mutated gene(s) self-correct for that small amount of time and I get to see to the core of my little boy. It is a strange, treasured phenomenon that always makes my day 😀
Not much to mention today other than it was beautiful out! So I spent a large chunk of my day outside. Did some reading in the morning and then a short walk. Ended up going for another walk later in the afternoon and then sat out in the sun while I worked on my Math before dinner. It was so lovely and I am so sunburned, but it is worth it as it will turn into a tan!
Things that I am grateful for/about today:
~ that I’ve made getting my workout done first thing in the AM a habit
~ it’s the May long weekend and it isn’t raining!! This is so rare!
~ being outside for most of the day
~ got my herbs planted this afternoon
~ I noticed an increase flexibility in my hamstrings
And an extra on because I am so happy about this: BTS won the Top Social Award at the BBMAs this evening!!! Yays!!
