The waiting game….

I finished the chapter in Charlotte’s web and looked over at 7yo who was already fast asleep. It has become our nightly routine to read one chapter of Charlotte’s Web before bed as it is one of my favorites and whether she wants to admit it or not, she still enjoys her mom reading to her every now and then. I kissed that sweet girl’s head and reflected on the day’s events.

She had her first appointment with the counselor for evaluation and  the only way I could explain it to her is that she was going to have a check up and just talk to Mrs. N. She looked a little nervous but went with her anyway.

After her hour was up, she walked out with a pokemon card and chatted the whole drive about mrs. N and how they played pokemon and she drew her a Pikachu! I am so thankful for her wanting to get to now her interests and I suppose that is what they are trained to do. 7yo is actually excited to see mrs. N again and I am anxiously awaiting the results of her evaluation.

We are still having accidents and emotional moments. I never in my life thought I would have a 7yo still in pull ups at night, nor did I think we would still be having the poopy accidents that we are having. Mrs. N told us to get her a Gastrointestinal consult, that they may actually be something wrong and honestly I have never thought about it that way.

I have a note to call Mrs. N next week for an appointment to get the details of her evaluation and I am a little nervous and relieved that we might get her some help and the fact that she told 7yo see you next time, makes me think that she obviously thinks she could benefit from counseling. The truth is can’t we all?

For now, all I can do is sit and wait! Uggh I hate the waiting game!

I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.

  1. I would say that most insurances cover 4 or so visits with counselors under employee assistance programs because it takes that long to evaluate and work on the situation. Even at 7. I would not worry too much about that yet.

    ((hugs)) to you both
