It's been a great week. A busy week, an adjusting week.
A surprising week.
But a strangely peaceful one.
Obviously, he is processing a little change anxiety though, since he has been waking up frequently at night, and crying: "I want my mommy!!" Which he has never done before.
It's been hardest on Aquaman. Never one for new situations, or crowds, or loud noises, he often comes home and completely falls apart. We've learned that a 10 minute shower by himself when he comes home is a good cure. I think by next year, he is going to be thrilled to go to kindergarten and leave the babies.
For now he's enjoying a little extra brother time.
I knew this year would be a year of change and growth, but I had no idea what kind of changes they would actually be. I guess I thought there'd be a firefighter job for JT, maybe paramedic school. But instead, I'm gearing up for job #2, the boys are starting daycare, and well....something else quite unexpected.
Because I'm realizing that sometimes, I have no idea what God's plans are, or what His will is, even though I presume to know.
And that really and truly, it's better that way.
All we have to do is go along for the ride.
