Sometimes when I find out information that confirms SPD in our family I get choked up..other times I tell my self that it is ok because N-Zilla will grow out of it.
Today was a day that I got choked up...I realized that maybe the reason why Crazy Horse never liked me to comb her was that she had SPD...it was a daily thing. Every morning she would cry. NO, not just cry...completely break down.. It sounded as if she was being tortured every time I took a brush to her head. I always thought she as just being difficult. Thinking of all the times I yelled at her for not letting me comb her hair made me feel so bad as a parent. Now Crazy Horse's hair is always short.
Also today, I watched N-Zilla as he took a nap. His little body was twitching the whole time...No wonder he hardly seems rested when he wakes up..I remember the speech therapist asking me if he moved a lot in his sleep. I didn't really know because up until today I never watched sleep. When ever the boy sleeps I try to catch a few Z's myself or do something productive around the house.
Oh well...here's to learning and growing as a parent..
