“Mama, take off your shoes please.” Sometimes Nathan asks for the strangest things, but I had a realisation as I gladly complied with his request…
…now that Nathan is so good at verbalising his desires (be it as strange as me taking off my foot ware), imagine how much internal conflicts he has been avoiding.
When he was unable to speak, he must have desired so many things but just couldn’t do anything about it.
Behind every tantrum that I could not understand, behind every bite/aggression that I could not explain, was a desire that Nathan could not verbalise.
So today I 🎉🎉🎉celebrate 🎉🎉🎉 every “odd” request that Nathan makes because I know that internally, Nathan has avoided another “volcanic eruption”!
