Every Monday, my little family gets up before the sun in order to travel about 2 hours to the closest children’s hospital for speech and occupational therapy. Now, before you say this isn’t fun, hear me out.
Daddy Head and I have decided that the development of Bear and Lion is something that has no price tag so we have chosen to take Daddy Head’s one day off and sacrifice for our children. They mean that much to us.
The key is, we make each Monday a fun memory. Whether we take a moment for ice cream or spend some time shopping, we try to find something fun to do in order to make it something to remember for a life time. We have made it our goal to not focus on how hard it is on us, but instead to make it fun.
That doesn’t go without saying that it is hard. Every Monday when my alarm goes off at 5 am, I dread getting up, but it is a season. And every time Bear says something new, it makes that 2 hours of lost sleep worth it. With new memories to focus on, every week turns into another and we will look back at these times with fondness and excitement.
