Okay so here’s the thing. Our girl’s been having a lot of family social time with my big brother and his wife now visiting from Perth after our big Uluru holiday and our precious cousin’s 3rd birthday on the weekend as well. No more hiking or anything really other than eating out and talking but she is EXHAUSTED. Got to school for 2 hours this morning and that was enough for her. Can’t see a longer day tomorrow but learning to just not predict.
So: she’s in control and schoolwork is under control and she still gets to participate in the family occasions. BUT…does the social pace mean that in the long run she will take longer to get better or am I right in thinking that the happiness produced by doing what she likes, when she can, is healing and, in fact, essential and that actually there is no choice??? I guess it’s helping her walk the fine line as always. Soooooo, no regular rests on weekends except when she wants to? Even if that means less school?
