I have now been a pseudo-single mom for almost 2 months. I sometimes feel like the little engine that could, saying "I think I can, I think I can"... LOL!
Summer is here, and we have a busy one planned! It includes 4 weeks of girls inc. camp for Kloe, time in Arkansas and Virginia for the whole family, a major kitchen remodel for the house, and a two week trip to Ethiopia/Uganda for my big boys. They get back the day before school starts again!
I was dreading summer vacation because we were starting to struggle with Kloe and some old behaviors and I didn't know how it would go. I made an appointment with the Dr. and told him I felt we needed to increase the dosage of aderall, and Kloe's classroom teacher and her ESL teacher confirmed what I was already feeling in my gut. We have been about a week on the higher dosage and the difference in family life is once again, astounding. It's like a breath of fresh air... and not just for me as a parent... but Kloe feels so much better too!
So, not too much else to tell, we are just hanging in there until we can all be together again. Until then... I think I can, I think I can!
