I have such butterflies in my stomach this morning. Got hardly a wink of sleep last night. Eric starts his first day at a regular Kindergarden today. Yes, it is Orientation, and his mom will be there. But you see, my butterflies are for both Eric and my Nikki.
I know too well her struggles and her worries about this - and no, I cannot feel the whole extent of her pain and worry, cause, well....she is the mom. But I'm her mom, and Erics Grandma, so I do feel quite alot of it.
I've been sitting here reading the other blogs -- its not just Eric, I feel for all the moms and kids with Special needs. There are days I'm filled with joy and hope when I read them. Right now, with school looming (some have already started), I'm afraid.
There is not much more I can write at the moment. Time to hit the shower and start my day. It's been a busy last two weeks, and I've lots to post. But this is all I have at the moment. All that fills my head.
I love you Eric Daniel, and no matter what you find in the world out there, your family adores you. I love you Nikki, I'm so proud of the mom you are and admire the strength you have. Eric was sent to you for a reason. He is special and so are you my love......
Blessings to all the moms out there who need them now.
