The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

This week represents a huge accomplishment for Sweet Boy#2 and myself. For the past eight months, Sweet Boy#2 has been doing eye therapy. For the past eight months, I have been forcing Sweet Boy#2 do his eye therapy exercises and limiting his screen time to even smaller amounts than I was before. It was a whole lot of work. So much so that the eye therapist told me that normally they make kids come in for an appointment every week…because they don’t do their homework. I swore to him that I would make my son do the homework and so we only had to do the 4 hour trip to Yakima and back once a month. Still, it was a lot of driving and a lot of homework and a lot of movies stopped at 60 minutes in. But this week we went to his last regular appointment and Sweet Boy#2 graduated from the first phase of eye therapy. Now his homework is only for 5 minutes a night instead of 20! To celebrate, Sweet Boy#2 and I went out and watched a movie, yes a whole movie, at the theater. We saw Night at the Museum 3, and we went out for dinner together at IHOP. This was a special celebration with my sweetest blonde boy, all the more wonderful because it was so hard earned.
