My beloved little Destructo, with a watchful mama peeking over his shoulder. Taken with my not-very-smart phone that always comes in handy for entertaining the kids with pictures.
This past week has been so wrapped up in sorting out all my emotions about Destructo's IEP and the impending move and how those two will affect each other; I am left thoughtful and a bit brooding. I do not wear this particular set of emotions well.... I can remember making a conscious decision to stop journaling in the past because thinking about everything too much just makes me depressed! I don't want to be too deep all the time!! I like to keep it light and steer clear of the all the emotional heavy lifting that has been going on here lately. ;-) Now, now, before you get all worked up about that; you KNOW that I do a lot of thinking, you KNOW that I love meaningful conversation, you also KNOW that I love to gossip and talk about current events and basically act like a man. I can't help myself!
Despite my disinclination to explore the dark places, we have come to some decisions. We are going to wait and see what we can make happen on this trip to the UK that Daddy-007 and I are taking in April. If we don't find a place and/or get some great answers to our questions regarding the schools then Daddy-007 will go to England solo for the first semester of school. It is unimaginable how I will hold it together with the three boys on my own, but it would only be for a few months. I am optimistic that I will get over there, though, and everything will just fall into place and the Furious Five will be off on the adventure of a lifetime!
I'd like to say a special Thank You to all the great comments and supportive notes and emails about the IEP, the reality of schools and kids, and that the most important thing for Destructo is our parental love. I really think that everything is going to be amazing with our move, but the demons definitely had me last week! It is also a beautiful thing that Braja is back home in Mayapur and resting up so she take up her World (Wide Web) Domination again soon. Check out her new post!
