This past week Grant went to the ER with a flare-up of his Crohn’s Disease. He was released but being sick before and after has put a lot of extra stress physically and mentally on me. (Don’t feel guilty, Grant.)
I am more exhausted than ever but today Grant and I were determined to take Tyler to the park, even though I was wondering how the Hell I was going to make it through the day. Then Grant told me he is just not feeling well enough go. I told Tyler that it was just going to be him and I at the park today and he started yelling, “I don’t want to go to the park, I don’t want to go out!” When I asked him why he said, “Because if Daddy can’t come I don’t want to go without him. I just want to stay here with Mommy and Daddy, and be all together.”
Too much wisdom to come out of a three-and-a-half-year-old. I feel so guilty that taking Tyler anywhere is a struggle for Grant and I but I was so touched that Tyler didn’t care about going out today, that he just wants to be with us.
He is such a special little boy. I am still crying my happy and sad tears.
