For over a year, Charlie has attended at least one therapy appointment every week. Now, she has therapy four out five days during the work week. Mix in the appointments with the specialists and it becomes A LOT.
I’ve heard of and talked to parents whose kids have taken breaks from therapy. From time to time, I’ve secretly fantasized about it. But, I was afraid to. I didn’t want to miss out on opportunities. After some thought, I decided Charlie and I would take this week off of therapy.
It has been wonderful.
Rest assured, we aren’t sitting around the house and watching TV. We are getting out and doing things on our accord. We have no schedule to keep or places we have to be. We aren’t thinking about the goals she needs to work on. The freedom and relaxation has been fabulous. It’s like we’ve been on a vacation of sorts.
We are only midway through the week and are having a fabulous time.
