No, not THAT kind of working girl!
I started a new job outside of the home on Monday. It's a full time position and so far the transition from stay at home to out in the world has been ok. I do what every other working outside- of- the home mother does. Plan, execute, and deliver.
David had a great day at school on Monday. His teacher reported that he was really focused and demonstrated several independent skills. I thought that was wonderful. He has a sitter who comes for a short period of time during the day. It's during the time that he is with his at home teacher and for a short time after. Since my husband is a teacher, we won't need a sitter for an extended period of time during the school year. I thought the change would cause him some anxiety and maybe even some regression. Nope. David is doing fine and Momma worries to much.
We had a nice surprise yesterday. Apparently, The State Of New Jersey received some monies which were earmarked for families living with Autism. We received a very generous and most welcomed check.
New Jersey has also passed a bill that will become law very soon which requires insurance companies to cover autism related services. That's a beautiful thing. Typically, insurers would not cover speech therapy for an a child with autism who has never spoken because the services weren't considered "restorative".
Yes, a beautiful thing.
