So here is the quick stuff of what we have been up to with Tyler.
Tyler is doing amazing at school. This was probably the BEST thing that we have done for our family. The move it self has really been good on so many fronts. there has been some downfalls but his schooling and the option of schooling is amazing. His teacher has really pushed him and has really forced him to be independent. There is also a push at home for him to be independent.
At home we are TRYING to make him more independent. The problem is, is his mom. Yep. It is me. I have done EVERYTHING for him for the past 7 years. I have always done it, will probably always do it and it s VERY hard for me to punish him and not do it for him. Plus he has a tendency to manipulate a situation if he needs/wants to. We call it the crippled kid syndrome. It happens with kids with disabilities and we have watched from afar those who have health needs that require much of a parents time. They tend to get away with SO much more than those who haven’t relied on their mom so much. But we are working on it. We have to follow through with punishments and we realize that Ty is not so much of an angel all time.
We LOVE our house and our neighborhood. There are 2 little boys that live next door and now that the weather isn’t a furnace outside the boys spend all afternoon outside playing. This is where our other awesomeness comes in. Before we moved Ty was not able to ride his bike without a lot of help. With a little motivation from his little neighbor friend Ty is a bike riding FOOL! He loves it and does really well. He rarely needs any help and much to my cringing, reminding and dragging he loves riding on the street. Lucky for us, we live on a “island” away from a main road and so we get little to no traffic but the people who live on our street.
The weather is perfect right now and so we are outside a lot. Baby Grayson isn’t so much of a baby and tends to run away a lot. He loves to be outside and he loves to be in the water. He follows Tyler every where he goes. And he loves LOVES cars. He loves his dad and will miss him when he goes away next week.
Dallas and I are doing OK. The last 4 years of infertility and infertility treatments have really taken a toll on us. We are having to make a few choices that will affect us the rest of our lives and emotionally it makes me kind of a mess. But it will all be done in a month and after that there is no other options. We have been working on just us. Fixing what was broken through those years of painful treatments and times.
So there is the down low!! For now.
