Elijah hasn't been on a 5-day course of steroids since he was a baby, and now it's all coming back to me. I am remembering those tired, crazy days very well, except now in 5-year-old terms. WOW. The past few days have been nuts! Elijah always has always had obsessive/repetitive tendencies, but when he isn't feeling well those tendencies become magnified times a thousand. Our home has not been a peaceful one this week. Since stopping the meds yesterday, things have gotten ever-so-slightly better. We're hoping for more progress in the next few days. I'm wanting my sweet Elijah back!
The little boys and I went to the dropzone for our first visit of the season today. Both boys were obsessed with the swing set (Elijah is finally swinging on big-boy swings!), so I can see what this summer is going to be filled with. For some reason Sam HATED it every time I would sit on the swing by myself. "NO SING, MAMA!!!" and then he would run away from me and suck his thumb. ?! I'm not sure what that's all about! We had a fun day watching Dan skydive and playing in the trailer and seeing friends again.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day, so Happy Mother's Day to all of you awesome mothers!
