Being the best Wy...

As I sat tonight and watched Wyatt breeze through his math homework, ever so often looking at me to smile with pride, it hit me.
I have heard of changes at school and have noticed these things at home, but this is the first time I saw him see the change within himself. As he gazed at me for approval I asked him- "Wy, does life feel a little easier now that you are on medicine?" He smiled and said "yes, it does feel easier". 
It has been 9 days since he started taking a low dose of medicine for ADD. Something I struggled with accepting and seeking medication for. (Please feel free to read my post about this - )     Fearing he would lose his sweetness and amazing personality. Fearing he would be a zombie or not himself. But, he is still the same awesome kid he was, just a whole lot more in control of himself. There are times as a parent we aren't sure of how best to help our children. I wasn't sure this was the answer, but seeing him succeed with such pride helps me know it is more than a step in the right direction. So thankful for his amazing team of teachers at school who love him and take such good care of him. For being honest and open and communicating their concerns and their praises. Thankful for my friends and their honesty about their own children's struggles. For the advice and listening ears. They say it takes a village to raise a child, so happy to be a part of the village we live in!
