Patience is a virtue

I don't have much time for blogging at the moment; my exams are in 2 months and I've got LOTS of work to do before I'm even remotely likely to pass them. I'm already planning all the things I'll do when I'm not doing this damn course. Bizzarely one of the things I'm looking forward to doing is creating a quilt for Seth. I first got the idea of creating a quilt when I was pregnant and other than collecting odd bits of material and looking into how to quilt, I didn't get any further. Seth is mainly being just like any other kid; wonderful and terrible at the same time. He can light up a room with his giggle and he can set your ears ringing with his screams. Part of my trouble is that the drive that keeps me looking forward and encouraging Seth to learn new things also makes me impatient for development to come quicker than it is. Seth has made so much progress and I have to stop and take stock every so often to appreciate how much we've achieved. Plus I must show him how proud I am of him and make him feel good about who he is and what he can do right now, if I'm going to help him push some more boundaries. So, it's all about patience and taking things step by step. I need to focus on the next 2 months before worrying about anything else and I need relax and enjoy the place that Seth is in at the moment. Maybe if I relax more, so will he and we'll have less screaming tantrums (from him and me :)
