mom-mode post #219 – on time to process

September 28, 2012 § 3 Comments

I had a few minutes to spare this Friday, so I thought I’d join Five Minute Friday again!

Today’s word:

Grasp.

O has started to act up this week. Little naughty behaviors, a few temper tantrums. The attention-getting type, you know?

In the midst of all the packing, I was trying to grasp what was this all about. How could I help him? Then it hit me. Just as I, a grownup (I guess), am trying to understand and make sense of all the emotions a big change entails, so is my 2-year-old. Without enough words to express it, to grasp it, his ways tell me he needed some grace and perhaps some time to sit down and process through it.

So we made a countdown calendar. Nothing Pinterest worthy, just some pictures on a page. “Mommy and daddy were extra busier these days”, I said. We are getting ready for our big plane ride to Gram and Gramps!”

My little toddler surprised me with some newfound eloquence: “I ready mommy. I go on de plane. I ready to Gram and Gramps.”

Truth is, we both needed some time to process.
