Momma, however, is in serious SERIOUS denial.
I've cried the last 2 days picking him up. Choked up, blubbering, mess-type crying. How on earth am I going to get through our final All-School Assembly on Thursday? I have such a mix of emotions right now. On one hand, I am so excited to move on to the next chapter of our journey, but on the other hand, I don't want to leave. It's my calm and cozy place that I have spent all of my Momhood at. We've been protected and supported in ways that most families never get a chance to experience, let alone families with kids with Cochlear Implants.
Don't get me wrong, I've been counting down the days until our summer can begin, when the longest drive I'll have is to Whole Foods to get more watermelon and my kids can sleep in as long as they can. I'm certainly not going to miss the drive in DC rush-hour traffic. And there is something very zen about packing away the lunchbox for a couple of months. We will be heading back up to school once a week throughout the summer to continue Christian's new CI rehab with one of our favorite SLPs whose been with us since he was 14 months old.
And I'm crying again.
