I must say, today was probably one of the best days of my life. As you know, Gage is spending the summer with us in Maine. Tonight was one of the most enjoyable and loving nights in the 3 weeks he's been here. And a lot had to do with the fact that we cut him off from Youtube. He has been watching Minecraft Halo segments and it was driving me nuts, so we finally cut him off. Now we limit his time watching. What a difference! We played games with coins, I told him if he could count the change in my pocket, he could keep it. He eventually counted it correctly, so I gave it to him. Then it was on the table and which hand was it under! I beat him a few times, but then he beat me. Oh what joy he got out of that! Then we went fishing with a game that his Nana gave him last year. That was very much fun. He was hugging and laughing, but most of all he was interacting with us. We now have an understanding that his TV time is going to be mixed together with learning and getting ready for school again.
Gage is our main enjoyment right now and we are trying to help him through this extremely turbulent time. I feel for the parents and children out there that do not have the support that Gage has. Keep them close to you, because they do not fully understand why this is happening and they have fears that must be addressed.
As always, may peace find your doorstep and may you get through this successfully.
