More Pumpkins

Hello Autumn! It seems when you roll around we can't get enough of pumpkin farm field trips. Tate had his for preschool last week and we had a rare, as of late, warmish and sunny day.


I got to go alone with Tate, thanks to the generosity of a neighbor friend, and it really was good to be able to focus on him for a little while. We have been struggling through a new phase of tantrums recently, making for a lot of stressful days. Watching him play games and smile and want to hold my hand was priceless.


I enjoyed the reminder of what a sweet and funny boy he is.


And, there is a light at the end of our tunnel. I have seen Calvin's ability to reason and control his temper improve over the last year and I am certain this time with Tate is one we will all grow through. I am learning what works with Tate is different than what worked with his brother and we are finding our way.


In the meantime, I'll take the sweet moments when I can get them.

It's always fun to have one on one time with the kiddos. Glad you were able to have such a special day.
