Visit

Bub and I went to visit Amanda and her entourage today. Adelaide is so precious… the cheeks, I just can’t get over the cheeks! Ezra is darling – such a sweet little thing and so flexible (hey, I really admire that in a kid). Calvin was so excited to visit with a new friend. After we’d been there for a bit, he did the sweetest thing, he pulled together a matching outfit like Bub’s (Bub had on a cotton shirt with seams that you could see the stitching and his striped tights on, sans pants). It was absolutely adorable. I think Bub had fun – he was really fixated on figuring out how to climb up into Calvin’s bed without any help, like Calvin. I’m kind of letting him process and I’ll check in with him about it this weekend if he hasn’t mentioned it (he’s like Tig in that way that he likes to process things for a while). Ezra also sent us home with some fine artwork which is now gracing our fridge:

To the left is his monkey. And I’m not sure what the other two are, but the middle one started out with just the orange part and he decided it needed “more color”. Too cute!

I had a lovely time, but after I left I was thinking about it and I feel like maybe I was a bit boring. So Amanda, if you’re reading this, sorry if I was a bit dull today! I promise, I’m not always that logey. I was so tired. It was one of those days where your eyes are just burning and if you stop moving for too long, you really will fall asleep in place.

I was accutely aware today of how much I ‘translate’ for Bub and how little he really interacts with other kids. I realize today was new for him, new people, new house, etc. But I also noticed in Circle yesterday how he really just has his own agenda most of the time. At this point in his life, I think other kids probably don’t notice it, but at some point, they will start noticing. I think it might have been frustrating for Calvin since Bub wasn’t really engaging with him. I hope he didn’t take it personally.

The skein of yarn is still MIA, but I haven’t really looked intensely for it either. I’m in that stuck place… do I start it with the yarn left over from slipper #1 and hope I find it? Do I blow it off and start a whole new project? So rather than do either of those things, I just do nothing and longingly look at my knitting bag occassionally.

And I did some writing today in therapy. I’m really trying to be open to the expressive therapy part of my therapist’s repertoire. I’ve been very very resistant in the past, which in a way is strange because one of the reasons I picked this therapist was because she was into expressive therapy (writing, art, movement). I’m feeling more open about writing in general and feeling like therapy is a good, safe place to get some writing done. I’m debating about posting what I wrote… but thinking I might along the lines of one of my goals for this year… let the writing be terrible and mundane. We’ll see tomorrow.
