stormie has had a rough time transitioning back to preschool. we had a great summer and kept busy, so i think she misses that, but MOSTLY - i think she misses ME. that makes me feel a million tingly's inside! Now, before you start judging me about why i send her to preschool - i HAVE to. She requires services i can't provide, like behavioral therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.
i have never heard her tell me she loves me and misses me so much - EVER then i have in the last week. she's just not an outwardly loving kinda person like that. in fact, when she was still a foster child we were scared she was showing signs of Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).
the other night stormie had her first nightmare, so i slept in her bed. when she woke up, she told me she feel into the water (without her floaties) and mommy saved her.
it may not seem like much to you, but to me it means the world. it means she knows i'm her mommy. her provider. her rescuer. it feels good to know we are creating an unbreakable bond together.
