Our Summer vacation sucked, BIG TIME. I do not even feel like pretending it was OK, because it was not. Not that I expected it to be with one child not able to do anything but still,it could have been a slightly bit better than it was right now. Today is the first day of school again(Anthony will return to school tomorrow) and somehow I am feeling very sad and sorry for myself today so I am having a Pity Party all by myself, Which is OK, since I am normally the exact opposite. So today I dwell in misery and I might even shed a few tears here and there, but tomorrow I will be back to my regular self again, promise.
Anthony still has his cast for another 3 weeks but as off last week he is allowed to walk on it. After his cast comes off they want to operate him again to get the pins out. And than physiotherapy will start, so I expect this will not go away anytime soon. Right now he is more afraid of things. This can be the dark, school and even the cast having to come off, he can flip out thinking about it. In his mind he makes things HUGE and painful and monsters come alive so therefor I need to sit at least 15 minutes behind my computer at night when they go to bed, otherwise he will not sleep, he will freak out. Normally he isn't on his medication(ritalin) when he is off from school or the weekends but we now notice for the very first time that he really needs his medication every day. Within 30 minutes after his medication he is calm and relaxed again, the 30 minutes before I sometimes would like to shove him under the carpet, that bad. I think he finally sees the difference as well in himself when he is not taking his meds and when he does, which is good because he always thought they didn't work for him.
The last two weeks he has been doing one thing: Fishing. With my mom most of the time and last Saturday with my FIL. DH and I do not like fishing so I am thankful my mom does like it and like to do this with Anthony. She says he is so calm and quite when he is fishing, he can totally relax.
So Anthony asked me to come over the other day to take some photo's off them fishing and hopefully off a fish they caught. So of course I came and took these shots:
So we waited and waited but no fish was caught so I went home. Just when I was almost out of site I heard them scream that I had to come back because he had a big fish! So I ran towards them and snapped this shot:
Wow I thought that is one big fish!
And I wish I snapped a photo of Anthony's face when he pulled out "the fish", priceless:
Bwahahahahaha, my mom and I couldn't stop laughing.
I will leave you with a photo that I will make a big canvas off to hang in Anthony his room:
I am glad I edited these and hopefully I have some time soon to edit a few more pics that I took during the holiday.
