Wow, today felt good! I know most parents schedules can get pretty hectic with school drop offs and pick-ups, early morning or after school tutoring, choir practice, other curricular activities and such. But when you add in therapy sessions several time a week it can be down right exhausting. So when you get one of those days when there’s no school which means no tutoring or choir practice and then no therapy scheduled on top of that, yes it feels good.
That’s what we had today. The kids slept in late, we enjoyed breakfast with grandma and grandpa. Mommy did a few things around the house and then we were out of the house for a bit. It was so nice to get out and spend some free time with grandma and grandpa and not have to rush back to get to therapy somewhere.
It’s not often we get grandma and grandpa all to ourselves. We actually got to have lunch out with them too. The kids loved that and so did I!
Not that I didn’t sneak in a few OT exercises, I did, but not too much. It was a go, go, go day but a really nice one. Amazing how relaxed you feel when you don’t have an appointment to get to. I could get used to this. But I know Bug needs his therapy and I am happy to be able to take him. Wish it could be more actually but for now this has to do.
What do you do on your therapy free days?
