Just a FYI comin attcha.....I like walmart.com music downloads. So yesterday I picked out some to go along with Tara's "relax" CD that I'm making for her. I ripped 2 that I had, made my choices and added some from dot com. Last night as she was listening to it, she called me to come to her room. When I got there she had tears and gave me a hug. She said "oh mommy that song makes me happy and sad".....it was "I Can Only Imagine".
One of the "tunes" was a story by Lori Lite called "The Goodnight Caterpillar". It tells of a caterpillar in a hurry to prepare for his cocoon and how a little girl helps him slow down, breathe and relax. This is her favorite. She said she had to use that story a couple times in school on Monday. So today I suggested that she take the CD with her. She didn't need to listen to it at school today! That is good.....she is able to cope and get herself through the day at school. At least she will have it if she needs to focus and calm down. Her therapist suggested this tool and her teachers are all OK with it which I think is awesome!
Plus I have an herbal cream that my Mom had made especially for Tara's anxiety. I dunno what's in it, but you massage a little into the bottoms of the feet before bed. We did that last night. Didn't have troubles in the getting to sleep department!! WOOO HOOO! Gotta have mom get some more from that herbalist.
Oh, Tom decided Monday to call me at work and growl "there's nothing to eat in this house"......he's talking to me, how shocking, and I said as much. Told him I was surprised to hear from him, thought he was acting childish. He kept up his growling attitude and I said "ya know, you need to grow up!" and I hung up the phone. Tara called back asking if we could go out to eat...sure. When I met them, Mr Man was sweet and quiet and very pleasant.....WHO IS THIS MAN??????
