She was so not interested that it led to whining … which led to passively trying to kick me … which led to time away to think. It only escalated from there because she refused to say sorry for kicking me. Oy. Lisa stayed until after the tantrum ended (we certainly didn’t want Sunshine thinking that a tantrum would get Lisa to leave!) and we made an appointment for next week. For now, we are meeting once a week, although may increase to more if we aren’t seeing progress. After the Physical Therapy experience, I kind of new Speech wouldn’t be a walk in the park. Let’s hope she is more interested next week?
Here’s a quick iPhone video of Sunshine just 30 minutes later … reading a book to herself. Really?! LOL.
And then, in God’s perfect timing, I got this note from a super-precious, sweet local homeschool mama friend:
Last night I was up feeding the baby around 2:30 am and when I got back in bed starting to fall asleep I had an interesting experience. It was like I was hearing you and the Lord having a conversation. I heard your voice saying ‘But Lord, I feel so discouraged, l’m not doing a very good job here.’ And then I heard Him say back to you ‘My daughter, I love you. You are doing a great job parenting and I am proud of you. I want to encourage you, I love you so much. You are doing a wonderful job. I am here with You.’ I hope this encourages you today!”
Yeah, the tears flowed down my face after I read that note, let me tell ya! After the difficult speech therapy session, it couldn’t have come at a better time. God always knows!
