I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at The Nut HouseHappy Thursday from The Nut House!

I hope y’all are having a great week and now that Thursday is here that means that the weekend is right around the corner! Yippie 🙂 We have a Halloween themed birthday party to go to Saturday night and the boys have been asking me 20 times a day for the past week “How many days until the party”. Needless to say the kids have gotten really good at reading the calendar this week. Their memory has not improved though.

After finishing up three weeks of several appointments each week, our run of Drs, dentists and cardiology appointments is done for the time being. Today was the last 2 appoints followed by 5 flu shots! The kids are walking around holding their arms and moving in slow motion, whimpering in agony over the spot on their arm where they got their shots. Poor little Honey Nut got 3 shots in her legs and is walking around like a champ. Babies sure bounce back quickly!

E Nut and Honey Nut are both growing well, and passed all of their little tests for their well visit today. I am so Thankful that everyone in our family is healthy and doing well. And I am Thankful that we get a bit of a break from appointments until next month!

Wing Nut actually gained weight! I am amazed and thrilled. He is still at 0% for both percentile and BMI, but he has gained just over 2 pounds in the past couple of months. This is the largest weight gain he has had in over a year. We still need to get him back to the specialist and I think that we are going to take him to a few other specialist until we can figure out why he is so far underweight. He worries me, but his weight gain is the highlight of my week! I am so Thankful for weight gain!

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that we have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.

So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

Here is how Thankful Thursdays works:

1. Post your Thankful Thoughts on your blog. Somewhere in your post please mention The Nut House and/or ourhappynuthouse.com so that your friends, family and visitors know where to find other Thankful Thoughts. You can also grab my Thankful Thursdays banner and link to that. Once you have done that you can come back here and add your post to MckLinky.

Not every one has a blog, so:

2. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a Thankful Thoughts comment in the comment section.

3. You can show your Thankful Thoughts any way you like, as a list, a story, a vlog, as one word, one sentence or just a picture.

      Yep Melissa, I do this every week! There were a few months recently that I was having a hard time with postpartum depression and pulling myself out of it. I am so Thankful that I made it through that and able to do Thankful Thursdays again and look at all the wonderful things around me 🙂
