Three years ago….

Three years ago today I lost my grandfather.  I had to watch him slowly loose functioning and breath his last breath. I can’t believe it has been that long already. I remember it like it was yesterday and yet I also feel as though it’s been ages since I last saw his face or heard his comforting voice.

Oh how I miss that man. He had an answer for every problem. He was my provider my father my best friend and my hero. I am blessed to have been raised by such an honorable honest man.

In honor of his death I will share a post I wrote a few days after he died back in 2011. I spent three weeks living down here caring for him 24-7. I collected some of my favorite Facebook posts from that time and posted them in one blog.♡the images are not showing up but you get the point. ..

I still miss him. But nothing compares to the way She must feel…

Thankfully she has no clue what the date was. She even wore his shirt that he is wearing in this picture today without even realizing it.

*sigh*
Alas… we must say goodbye.

Sweet Reunions

Most of you know Kaelob is in a “special” class at his school specifically taylored towards behavrioally challenged children.  Coincidentally ALL of the kids in his class (nine children total) are boys.  There are atleast five teachers some times up to 7 or 8 in the class at a time. Most of them are there to hover around and cover a certain child needing task specific redirection. Each child has something unique attatched to their desk that helps them with various sensory needs, for example Kaelob has what looks like a giant rubber band attatched to his chair and occassionally (especially while taking tests) he can reach down and stretch it with his arm, or put his foot on it and stretch it that way.  One child has a squishy feely blog thingy velcroed to the top of his desk.  Another has an inflatable cushion on his chair that looks like a giant whoopie cushion or the pillow you get when you bruise your tailbone.  The classroom is very colorful, very structured and extremely helpful to Kaelob.

Thank you for being sick…a Mother’s Confession.

Okay, maybe she isnt really sick… maybe she is. it is still to be determined… maybe she is just gassy and not feeling well, but it wont progress into the nightmare that I so quickly imagine (and secretly prepare msyelf for)…Either way, Thank you.

Weird right? But honestly…. More
