It’s so easy to get caught up in the role of parenting a child, but especially one with so many issues that are under constant care and consideration. I've put so much of my mental and physical being into parenting Ethan, that I've neglected to care for myself on some pretty basic levels. Moving to this place has enabled me to finally relax in the knowledge that Ethan’s needs are being thoughtfully addressed by wonderful and talented professionals. Seeing him thrive here has made it much easier to change my focus, or at least widen the scope. I’m trying to take naps (I don’t sleep well due to Ethan’s continued sleep disturbances) and I've been making wiser choices about what I eat. I have enrolled in an exercise class that I really enjoy and while he is at school I’m spending less time creating and maintaining to-do lists and more time taking baths or reading for pleasure. I have even been so bold as to schedule a couple of doctor appointments for myself. It feels good to let go of the reins a little bit and let other people work their magic with Ethan. I think he likes it as much if not more than I do.
