This week I have been deathly tired, I mean TIRED, on top of that I've had a daily headache, and feel like that eclipse might have screwed with me. Anyone else?
Anyway, my 8-year-old came home Wednesday, cleaned up her room, did her homework without my telling her. I left Abram asleep on the couch and went to my room for a bit, next thing I know, she's walked him up the stairs, put him in the bed, closed the garage, turned off all the lights, plus brought me Advil and a drink (at my request). She'll also run Abram's bathwater, no problem, and is just great overall help. And this isn't a one day thing, she's consistently this way.
I could not have asked for a more mature, kind child. She just has a big heart and has made my transitioning to being alone with them so much easier.
