Attachment challenged kids take a lot of energy. They need so much reassurance. They need so much attention. It often leaves the whole family feeling like they've been smoked right down to the filter.
By the time Saturday rolled around, we were all spent and needed a break in the worst way. We texted GranMary and
Kamron and I so enjoyed the day out with Sadie and Noah. They are such neat, little people- each with their own big personalities. They loved the two on two time just as much as we did. They got so much attention, dictated the whole day, and had their voices heard without all the hubbub of a tiny brother in tow. Batteries are all recharged and hopefully we are all ready to tackle a whole new week!
(After re-reading this, I feel like I just have to say that we love Miles a whole lot. There- is that more balanced?)
