Oh how I hate the afternoon and evenings on the day of Thursday. You might wonder but tomorrow is Friday? Why is this one day of the week such a thorn in my side. It is because of my son, or at least the what this night does to him. He get off the bus around 3:15 and there is a constant whiny sound you will hear till about 6:30. This whining will then lead to stomping then crying then sobbing till we can’t whine anymore. Yes it is annoying and I hate it but my heart breaks at the same time. Henry is in sensory overload by Thursday night. Have 4 days of school, 2 nights of TaeKwonDo, and a night of church have reached their limit. He has tried to hold all his feelings, emotions inside and by day 4 he is a bear. He explodes and we know to expect it now. He is passed out now and I hope he sleeps till morning and then tomorrow is a fresh day and Friday is always a fun day. He gets the rest his body and mind needs and we can get up and face another day.
Now I had a great Thursday. I needed to drive to the audiologist which is about a 40 minutes away. It was a follow up appt and to change some programing on my hearing aid. I knew it would be a short visit so make it worth the drive. I picked up a friend and we were off. We shopped without kids, talked, and stopped to eat a meal. I wish the world could listen to us at a perkins table. We could run the world with such ease. It isn’t complicated we have it all worked out, just listen to us. I am glad we had this time together we made it a great morning.
We all have our Thursdays. Times when we want to crawl into a ball and cry and shut out the world. The world has a lot of pressures and they can come in at all sides. My heart breaks that my son feels all those pressures and they all soak into him till he bursts. He is sleeping so calmly now. My prayer for him is a restful sleep that will take all the stresses and anxiety away, way too much for a 5 year old.
I hope you all have a restful Thursday night and you can all feel fresh and new for Friday.
