This little nugget had an appointment with her occupational therapist today. i love our ot, she is one of graces biggest cheerleaders. today she told me that grace is around the 6 month mark in terms of milestones and developments. she wasn’t saying it as a criticism. it’s just where we are at.
i’ll be honest. it was hard to hear. it’s not even that bad.. i knew she was behind her sister. before the appointment i had been so proud of how far she has come. but something about hearing that out loud felt like a slap in the face.
i had to take a second and regroup. remind myself that these milestones mean nothing. remind myself of all the accomplishments she has made so far. she is constantly developing new skills and hitting new milestones. she is just doing it at her own pace... and that’s okay.
it’s so easy to get caught up in these projected timelines that have been set for us that sometimes when we don’t meet them it feels like failure. we missed that mark or that deadline and somehow all of the things we have done and what we have accomplished mean nothing or are forgotten. it’s an important lesson i need to remember, not just when thinking about her.. but to be kind to myself as well when i’m not where i thought i would be in the time i thought i would. i think this is an important lesson for all of us. remember to celebrate all the little wins and small moments. that is truly what life is made up of. #celebrateeverymilestone .
