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!
