It's Been Awhile

I've been super busy the last few weeks and haven't really had any chance to post anything. Will has been sick, I've been super behind in class and trying to catch up (I had to miss two classes through my miscarriage), and it's been a hard month. Thursday is CDH Awareness Day, and if you remember I would be honored if you would wear Turquoise to support all families affected by CDH.

While I love to promote CDH awareness and talk about MJ, this has been a really big thing on my mind lately. You see, we switched daycare places in October. We were at an in-home daycare, and now we are at a daycare center. I love the teachers in Will's room and we are really happy overall that we switched, but the thing is, they don't know about MJ. I bought Will a shirt that says 'I Wear Turquoise for My Brother' to wear on Thursday and I have been trying to tell Will's teachers all month about MJ and CDH Awareness Day. Obviously, I haven't had the guts to. I had a lot of opportunity to, as well. Will is typically one of the first kids dropped off, and so its pretty easy to start a conversation with his teachers. But I just don't know how to really. I mean, its not something that could ever easily come up in conversation, and even when we first started, I think everyone just assumed that Will was our first and only child, so no one asked. (I always say two kids.)

So here I am, tomorrow is the day before and I would rather bring it up the day before then the day of. Last year I cried most of the day, and so I think I will be pretty emotional on Thursday, so tomorrow will overall just be better. How I am going to do it, I have no idea. I am thinking of starting, "So there is something I need to talk to you about . . ." Who knows how it will actually go. Blah! I hate that I put this off for so long and now I am stuck doing it last minute. :(

Wish me luck, and don't forget to sport your Turquoise on Thursday!

Megan my wife, you are the mother to our twins. You are the strongest woman I know and you are my rock. You have tought me so much about life. You have more strength than I and you handled the conversation well with daycare. I could not have done it. Never doubt your strength and courage. Never doubt who you are because your are great and amazing.
