30 Days of Thanks


Time fo 30 Days of Thanks- my most favorite thing to do on this blog! It brings out my inner Pollyanna and really forces me to think about all the blessings in my life.

Today I’m thankful for progress- specifically, Scorch’s progress.  I don’t know if I’ve ever written about this, but last year Scorch started to struggle with some moderate anxiety. It wasn’t debilitating, but it was frequent enough to be bothersome to Scorch (and the Hubs and me). His anxiety made getting to school every single day a struggle and it made bedtime a challenge every single night.  After a lot of back and forth, the Hubs and I finally decided to find a therapist for Scorch to talk to. We had no idea if his anxiety was even bad enough to warrant seeing a professional, but we figured we had nothing to lose.

Best. Decision. Ever.

Last Friday, Scorch had a crappy day at school. He got in a spat with a friend and it spiraled into a Big Deal like only a 1st grade argument can. All weekend long I was dreading the return to school on Monday- all I could think about was how nervous Scorch was going to be that morning. But you know what? He didn’t say a peep. Not a single complaint of a stomach ache, no tears, nothing.  I was shocked- and so freaking proud of that  kid.  The progress he has made in the past few months is astounding and I couldn’t be happier.
