Then the other day, out of no where he says ‘more’ and even uses the hand sign and the most amazing thing happened?! He got help immediately! He simply had to ask, and when he got the ‘more’ that he wanted the smile on his face told me how proud he was of himself.
So, after considering my options (I had a long drive to my parents house today to think about things) I realized two things…
1) I am a three year old who is whining and crying and demanding to be heard but I am not clear in my communicating
2) I have not really asked for help in certain areas of my life and those areas are in desperate need of help
I doubt I actually have my act together… I am probably going to have a hissy fit again at some point in the not too distant future but for the moment I am like Josh, discovering that communication is a handy tool and one that I should use on occasion.
