It’s been a long summer. We’ve been busy–as I am sure you have, too. Parks, pools, summer camp, a mini vacation, an ice cream social, and a trip to Cape Cod at the end of the week. But we now have one more thing to add to the list: probable ADHD.
I’m not going to freak out. I guess I could…but really, what’s the good in that? Instead, I am going to read up on it and find our all I can on the symptomolgy, treatment, and things we can do at home to make life a little easier. I am going to reach out and ask for advice from others and I am still going to do things that make me feel good (carbs, shopping and napping!) I am going to love my girls for ever and ever, no matter what. I am going to help them succeed in life and I am going to do it cheerfully. I am not going to have a pity party (although I probably could come up with some cute invitations…) and I am not going to sit back and say, “Woe is me.”
The thing is this: I have a little girl who is exceptionally bright. She has a ton of energy and a great zest for life. She is spontaneous and creative. She is industrious. And she is mine. And I will love her no matter what.
Later today: Photos posted from our back-to-school ice cream party
