TO HAVE YOU GUYS!! Seriously!! You guys are all so amazing!! I was in tears reading your comments to my post about my son.. I was moved by your honestly and your ability to step out side your own lives and relate to ME!!
I wish I could honestly tell you how much better it made me feel.. I thought back on it and almost regretted posting something so personal!! I hate admitting that I don't have everything under control.. but all of you have shown me that it is ok to struggle. And seriously.. when I am having a down day I will read these comments OVER AND OVER and know that it is not just me and it is not just him.
I was alarmed to hear how many of you were told the same things about your own children or even about yourselves.. and I am glad to hear that I am not alone in fighting against others opinions and trying my hardest to do whats best for my child. Thank you for helping me beleive in myself to do right thing!!
We have been doing so much better.. I think it helped to clear my head and release some of that stress by writing about it. It gave me a chance to take a step back and decide how we could approach him in a better way!! If I stay calm.. and patient then he deals with things so much better too!!!
My mom knew how much I have been struggling and she saw a segment on Dr. Phil.. I can't ever decide how I feel about that man lol. My mother is my biggest supporter.. she is always telling me that my son is perfect and raving about what a good mother I am to anyone who will listen.. she has listened to me countless times cry in frustration .. I beg her for answers... and I look to her to tell me that I am doing an ok job!! Anyways.. back to Dr. Phil(can you tell how much I love my mom yet:)) - he recently had a segment with a family that reminded my mother a lot of mine and she recommended that we try the book by the counselor who had been on the show. The book is called "Your not the boss of me" by Betsy Brown Braun. I bought it.. I normally would not do this kind of thing... again the struggle to admit I don't have control.. but I thought what can it hurt.. Uh.. it hurt nothing..because IT IS AMAZING!!There are so many great things in this book!! Things I never. ever. EVER thought about trying. I tried today to incorporate some of things I have read and it made a HUGE difference .. and I haven't even finished the first chapter yet!! My husband said he would read the first chapter and see what it was about.. and he loves it too.. he is even farther in the book then I am(but I was busy getting my son to get his homework dons so I deserve some points for that too lol)!!I just wanted to pass that along.. I felt like I needed to offer something after all the amazing advice and input that you guys gave me!!
Thanks again for being so AWESOME!!! I LOVE MY BLOGGY FRIENDS:)
P.S.I couldn't help but show you this cute little guy with his little sister!! He is such a good big brother!!
