My explanation is simply; I have been SWAMPED! At work, with things for my kids, and personally.
I am struggling to keep my head above water.
I have wanted to scream: "STOP THE WORLD, I WANT TO GET OFF!" from the mountain tops (too bad I don't live near any mountain tops)!
The time was short, but I was able to step away for a few brief moments yesterday and simply be G's Mommy.
He had his end of the school year program yesterday. While it wasn't as easy to just walk away from my job, I am so thankful to have been able to attend.
It was lovely to watch him in his element. He is such a happy go lucky, free spirited little guy. Yesterday, he shone more than usual.
We have listened to him practicing his songs around the house for weeks. All of his hard work (and the hard work of his teachers and classmates) paid off.
As he sang Sicky, Sticky Bubble Gum his face lit up with each sticky movement. His head was stuck to the floor here.
He embraced his inner performer during Tooty - Ta. He reached his high moment as his bottom went up and his tongue went out. It was as if the lyrics were specifically written for him.
During the performance I couldn't help but reflect on how much he has grown, developed, and learned this year.
Brent and I were extremely worried about his ability to focus, follow directions, and STOP talking. We have been pleasantly surprised with all of the gracious and honest complements we have received from his teachers, regarding his ability to focus and follow directions. And surprisingly they haven't mentioned the talking.
He has grow up right before our eyes and sometimes I feel as if we are missing it.
Yesterday for a few brief moments I was just Gavyn's Mommy. Nothing more and nothing less. And I LOVED it!
