One of the hardest things for me in this journey with Kendall is balancing my time and attention between my two babies! I don't know how people do it who have more than 2 kids and one with special needs. There's a big age gap between my kids, and Kamden is definitely more independent than a child closer in age would be. So, I know it could be worse!
But I have to say my big baby Kamden (a now 4th grader) is one of the most special, talented, loving, and funny kids I've ever known. He has embraced his big brother responsibilities with such grace. We have always been straight forward with him regarding Kendall's issues, and he gets it. More than we know.
He's been very worried about Kendall this past week, and I'm sure I could have done a better job explaining things...but running all over the place trying to get her well wore my patience thin for sure.
But he's handled it well. In fact, he is such a helper with therapy and calming her when she's having a fit, that Justin and I sometimes count on Kamden for a break. And he helps without complaint.
I am so blessed to have such wonderful children. It's really amazing how your priorities are rearranged when one of your kids turns blue!!! I've been reminded to cherish every day!!!
