Full Circle

Now that I’ve gone full circle, it’s time to start talking about other things. I’m planning on writing more in the coming weeks and months about other aspects of having a special needs child, like equipment, self care, and other questions like when to have another baby, etc.

Let me start this new train of thought by sharing that Owen and I had our first weekend off since Nathan was born! My mom kindly took care of him while we went to Catalina Island for the weekend. Neither of us realized how much we needed that until we actually had time to focus on each other, without always worrying about Nathan first and foremost. We had a FABULOUS time and reconnected very strongly.

We hardly left our tent and slept slept and slept some more. It felt like we slept through 2 years of exhaustion.

Now Owen and I feel “refueled” and ready to take on the world again.


  1. GOOD for you!!!!! Date nights OR WEEKENDS! Are soooo important! Mike and I do them as often as we can. 🙂 A little harder now that we live in Arizona, because I have a hard time trusting anyone other than my parents to watch our kiddos. 😉 Looks like you had a great time!
