Confessions of a Mom


I have a confession. My middle child has a problem saying the letter r. It is a hard letter to learn, and if a child has not mastered it by the middle of 2nd grade, then they recommend speech therapy. And that is my confession, I struggled when I learned she would be labeled. I felt like a failure. I felt like I had not done my job as her mother. These thoughts all went through my head as I was signing the paper work to get her into therapy. Then I realized, I need to be thankful. Thankful that she was able to get in. Thankful that she will have a wonderful teacher to work with her. Thankful that this is something that can be worked on.
So, my label for my dear Laney, is only my sweet girl.
