So on Saturday, Efren came and picked Kevin up and took him to a party! It was the first Kevin really went "out" for the night since we have been here in TX! He was so excited all day to go and I guess he had a great time. I went and picked him up at about 1am and he said he had fun. YAY!
We really didn't do much for the rest of the weekend. Breezy came for dinner on Sunday and that's about it. The baby is sick again, but his first tooth is just about here so hopefully he feels better once it pops through. Poor thing.
And today I started my job. It was fun and I got to meet a few people. I have to work again tomorrow and again on Friday. It's way more hours than I can handle truthfully, but I think it's just because they need to get me trained. I really can only do about 10 a week though as there is still so much to do with Kevin. I am struggling with not knowing the things I need to know from the therapists too. I might have to set up weekly calls or something. Kev still requires a lot of work at home and if they aren't telling me what they are doing it's not being reinforced, kwim?
Honestly, I am almost feeling like I am neglecting him because I'm not there for everything (doesn't this sound like the new mother? LOL)! It's just hard though. It would be different if he was 100% cognitively better, but he still does have just a few issues and when he can't come home and tell me what goes on, I struggle.
I guess I'll just have to figure it out though. I need some 'me' time and there has to be some sort of balance, right?
PS - Jessica, can you pop me an email, please?
First 2 from the Nov kit!
