What Does Mother-in-laws, Counseling, Peoria, IL, & Burn Notice Have In Common?

Not too much except, it has all kept me and Hubby pretty busy the past 2 days & it sounded like a catchy title for this rambling post! :-)

Hubby and I have been busy!! Yesterday we went over to the MIL's and helped my sister and brother in law, get some furniture. MIL is moving and Sis needed a few dressers and things, so that all worked out pretty good.


After that Hubby and I drove down to Niko's counseling. It's been moved to every other Wednesday. When we all got there in the office, (Bio-mom, S-dad and us) The counselor asked Bio-mom and S-dad to please wait in the waiting room while she just met with Hubby, (Niko's Dad), Niko and me. So we all got to spend quality time with the counselor. She tells Hubby and me, that we are doing everything right with Niko and that there is nothing she sees, that we could do differently. (you know some people are trying to say we aren't doing everything know who right? If not read down through other posts)

Any, it felt so good, to be reaffirmed by a professional. After a while, I guess we started doubting ourselves. So to Hubby and Me, this is very good news!! Praise Jesus! Now hopefully all other parties in play will get with the program, and we will all be on the same page and do what's best for the children. The counselor also said that Niko definitely needs to spend more time with his Daddy. Good news too.

Kaydee Bug Well, enough about that. We got up this morning early 6ish. and went to pick up my Mama, Sister and 2 nieces. My oldest niece Kaydee has epilepsy and she had to go to a pediatric neurologist in Peoria. We made a day of it. All went well with the appointment, but Kaydee does have to another EEG and MRI done in July.

Tonight Hubby and I are just being couch potatoes in front of the TV. Burn Notice season premiere comes on tonight. We have been anxiously awaiting the first episode.

So I will go for now and kick my feet up and watch Michael Weston, take on the bad guys. :)

I am soooo happy to read that Niko's counselor acknowledged your good parenting and hopefully eliminated any doubts. God is good. I am sure the counselor will recognize any false information and hopefully bring it to light with the other parties:) This is tough but I am so proud of you standing by your husband and the children you both love. Praying for you.
Burn Notice, oh yeah. My hubby and I love this show and just finished watching Season One on DVD, no commercials!! We are anxiously waiting the start of the new season tonight. It is so refreshing to have something decent to watch instead of all the "Reality" (NOT) shows that are so mindless and demeaning. I will shut up and just say, I am so glad that counseling went well. I hope Niko benefits greatly in his sweet heart.
This truly is about the kids and their future.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
