Mr. Zoo keeper, Alex, said to me you haven’t blogged in a while. I reflected on it and was surprised, he’s right, I havent. It got me thinking, why has it been a while?
This blog is an outlet of sorts for me and for the first time in a long time we were in a good place. I didn’t need an outlet as I had previously. That being said, the secondary purpose of this blog is to help other parents (especially those of newly diagnosed and young diagnosed) to not feel alone or guilty for feeling the feelings they are feeling. So I do apologize for the lapse in posts but I am excited about the progress we have made!
Nolan started school a month ago. That was a rough time for our family. We went through a lot of change in a short period of time and it took a while for us to fall into that being normal, but that was only a week or two. Nolan is making progress, but it is itty bitty bits little at a time. Nothing to really blog about, but a big deal for our family. I feel we (the zoo keepers) made some good decisions, and things were the right choice. I didn’t feel inner turmoil, I didn’t feel like I was lost. I was in a good place!
Alex and I went out on a date, and on our date, we didn’t talk about home. It was the first time in a VERY long time the purpose of the date wasn’t to sit down and have a big talk to figure stuff out, but to go out and have fun. We ate dinner, mini golfed, and go carted. It was phenomenal to have that type of date. Though we are bound to need to have a meeting at many dates in the future, we learned the importance of just having fun on a date too!
