My Tuesdays are just so FULL!
I have Bible study in the morning till lunch,
I rush home to tend to lil G, put her down for a nap
so we can go to Dance class.
Note to self: Do NOT tell Lil G that she needs to nap
so she can attend dance class when she wakes up!
Once again she has surprised me.
I hear giggling and squeaking of the bed at 2:45. Huh?!
She usually naps 3 hours.
I go into her room
the first word out of her lips is "Dance?!" (daaah-with the dance sign)
What is a mom to do but get her up and ready?
(instead of letting her sleep till the last.possible. minute.)
The whole time she is chattering about dance
and signing/saying "happy" I could have cried happy tears.
But I had already cried buckets.
grief has a way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it
So I just smiled with red-rimmed eyes
and kept working towards our goal.
GETTING TO CLASS ON TIME!
If you were to ask me,"what are your goals for Lil G and dance?"(Peeking in at the big girls dancing and wanting to join in)
I might have to think about it.
heres the list:
- learning to follow directions
- having a teacher other than mama/ papa
- having something to look forward to each week
- learning to interact with other children appropriately
- learn spatial awareness. (lil G stuck her finger in her eye while signing bug- you put your thumb on your NOSE!)
- good posture
- learning how to gallop, and move her body parts appropriately on command
- utilizing something she LOVES to accomplish these things and SO MUCH MORE
Her teacher and I were SO PROUD yesterday.
She has come so far in the past few weeks.
This is a very good thing.
We get home late, hungry, tired. No blogging.
Putting two posts in one will just have to do
because I am not going to give up and its the best I can do!
this was to be todays post.........
While son was helping me buckle the carseat in the car for ballet I checked the mail.
And a package arrived!
I won a contest last week~ and the gift was just so perfect.
A book! "A good and perfect gift"
Written by Amy Julia Becker
I started reading it last night and got to page 68 before sleep started to settle in.
I have been knitting on the prayer shawl for a much needed gift.
I dont do well with charts and will be writing out each row before I knit it from here on out.
Ive had to do this before. Sigh.
Two rows knit before bed.
joining up with Yarnalong and ginny today.
Under His wings,
