Super Mom

I think my words helped

Maybe she found some wisdom in my words this morning. 

This afternoon, the boys wanted to swim again.  I told them to ask her first.  Hear if she is okay with it today.

She said that they can swim, although Quintus says she looked kind of sad.

They swam and Zander proved to us that he can swim the entire length of the pool  (very very impressed with that btw)


I got up to get a chair and that’s when I saw her standing on the stoep, watching the boys.  She had a smile on her face.

I’m sure it hurt but also, it’s a new memory she is building up.  A better, more happy memory of the pool.

I’m very proud of her for taking the step to go outside and watch them swim.  To see them enjoy themselves. 

It’s when Zander saw her standing there, that he swam the length of the pool.  To show her that he can.

Proud day today.

    So glad that you have come to a point where it is ok between you and your helper. That your boys can continue to do what they enjoy and that she can also appreciate it. It is always important to remember though what had happened to her son. It is a good idea that you go through these points with your own children.

  6. How sad for any mother to loose a child.
    I’m glad she found some healing in witnessing them enjoying it.
