It is Over
I made it through another Mother's Day. Whew. I will say only one boy child picked on me this year instead of 2. That is an improvement. The look in his eyes yesterday was one of pure hatred. My family was great with my boys especially my brother's in law. I appreciate them so much. One took the 2 of them with him out to clean up limbs while he cut up some fallen branches from a storm. One son wanted to quit and he refused to let him until it was all done and they could all go in together. The other son interrupted a conversation between my 2 brother's in law and my brother in law explained that you just don't do that. In the real world it will never fly so don't do it now and don't do it to him. Firm but kind. There were numerous other incidents. We sat down to eat dinner in my mother's family room in chairs in kind of a U shape. Some of the teens sat on the floor and used the coffee table. My older son with RAD sat in the center opening of the U at the top facing away from everyone. How bazaar is that? I would never dream of sitting in a room full of people (especially family) and sit with my back to them all. Oh well. It is over. It is hard to not take things personally isn't it? I need to just move back into therapeutic mode this morning. Think of touching, eye contact and connecting with him emotionally. Forget about yesterday and move on. Bren I was so happy to hear about your positive day yesterday. As long as they are breathing there is hope!
