Yesterday morning Micah and I had some friends over to play. Kelly and her son Luke came. It was so nice to chat with Kelly but in talking, I realized that Micah isn't the smartest boy his own age, although I think he's still smart. Luke is a month older than Micah, but can recognize every letter of the alphabet. I know that this shouldn't bother me...."Every child develops differently," But I work SO hard!! I mean ALL of my day is spent with Micah....teaching, reading, playing, learning. I guess I'm just a little irritated. I'm sorry, but that's my vent for the day.
We knew that yesterday would be the warmest day for a while, so we enjoyed it. We spent over 2 hours in the yard yesterday afternoon. We are already ready for spring to come, but until then, we put on our jackets and enjoyed a beautiful day. I promise you, this boy would be totally different if we'd let him live outside. When he's outside he's happy, plays alone, (sometimes) and even obeys (most of the time.) I asked Stacy to let us move somewhere where Micah could live outside. He said No. So, I guess we'll just have to deal with unhappiness until spring!
