Yeah, I know. Me either. It's so hard. He is exceptionally understanding for just 4. But it breaks my heart and makes me angry that he KNOWS what a hospital is, and that Mommy IS different from other Mommies, and that I have to take 20+ pills a day. Who wants their child to have that experience?
I'm done asking why when it comes to me, but I still struggle with Jacob sometimes. He asks God to make me better, and we talk about heaven when I will be able to run and play like every other Mommy.
Sometimes he digs his little elbows in just the wrong way on my legs...oh my GOSH. The pain is excruciating. It's all I can do to stop the reflex of grabbing him and pulling him off. I NEVER want him to feel unwanted.
So...for all you experts out there....how the heck to I allow a 4 year old to be physical without going outside or playing with him? We have a trampoline inside, but that doesn't usually last too long. He needs rough and tumble stuff.
Anywho. Thanks once again for listening to the whine. Next time I'll try to have some cheese to serve with it! : )
