I am a mother warrior! I will strive, love, scrape, bargain, budget, slave, serve, even step aside so that my children can be who they were created to be. I will embrace their weaknesses, I will cheer their strengths. I am surrounded by mothers that do the same.
One of my sons is well, quite Tiggery. Boundless energy drives him from one disaster to the next. He is a roller coaster of emotions that baffle me. He is generous with love and passionate with anger. Although I am most often just plain ol’ worn out with him, I always just attributed his behavior as being a spirited boy. He just needs more time outdoors.
But recently, he has struggled with self-condemnation and frustration, sharing things that no child of his age should have to feel. So, I put on my war paint and set off on a mission.
I spoke with his Pediatrician. We travelled to a Neurodevelopmentalist in Texas. I am reading five different books with five different perspectives. Our entire family is trying a new allergy elimination diet. I don’t know if I should try to fix him, embrace him, challenge him, correct him, or just let go. But I will fight for him. I am a Mother Warrior!
