Living in the moment

Seeing pictures of my boys snuggling and sleeping peacefully is quite deceiving.  Emmett has been screaming,  pretty much since the moment he woke up,  which incidentally, was really early.

I sold my Vita on ebay and I was thinking about maybe, taking the boys to see the new Ice Age movie this morning.  I’m probably insane for even thinking that but I want the boys to have some fun. 

These hospital stays are difficult on them as well.  Their schedule is thrown out the window and they haven’t seen Lizze in like 4 days.

They are worried about Gavin and miss him dearly.

My thought is that the movie would be a nice distraction for Elliott and Emmett.  While they probably won’t sit through the whole thing,  I owe it to them to at least give them the opportunity. 

Selling the Vita on ebay,  hasn’t saved us.  It’s not going to make the mortgage, utilities or car payment, current.  However,  I can still use some of it to help the boys escape this situation for a little bit today.

Is this the most responsible decision?  Probably not. 

However,  when your a special needs parent,  these opportunities are few and far between. Sometimes responsibility has to take a back seat to living in the moment with your kids.  Besides,  as I said,  this wouldn’t make a dent in anything else.
