I can't believe......
My child is so happy! I am absolutely shocked...she came to me last nite and says "nite mommy" I said why ? she said "my bed, tired" - she kissed and hugged me and went to bed, on her own she went to bed, put her nite light on and covered herself and slept till 5.30 this morning!

and then she use to have this habid (maybe you can explain CS?) she use to put (hide?) everything that was hers including shoes, toys, food under her bed...we use to joke if you cant find something then look under Charne's bed....it's been nite 3 and i looked this morning there is nothing under her bed!

This morning she asked me for her "sippers" (slippers), I put them on she said "hondjie pee pee" and she took her doggie down the stairs and took him to the grass!

When I left work yesterday I thought....I feel happy, why? Because I dont have to sit with fighting kids, I don't have to be referee, I dont have to force them to bath, I don't have to say "no cartoon network until homework is done", I don't have to cook what they like....I made pap and sous and varktjops for supper...Ne even said "i like dish" (I like this)!

This morning my co-worker sent me and email saying :

"jy lyk sominet happy since jy sominet gemove het.
sominet a observation"

Whenever I was alone last night I'd think....where would G be right now...jip he'd be at the bottelstore, so why am I lonely? I'd have been lonely in anycase as I was so often....

H25 I hope you read this, thank you for your post! As you say the time would come, you (and many others knew it) but we each have our own time hey?

Dankie Nina ook.

And of course CS thanks for all the years of support.

Love Mom

Adult CP sums it all up very well indeed. She doesn't need to hide anything under her bed now, because she feels confident that nobody else ( like the other kids ) will interfere with anything. She's feeling more comfortable and confident, and of course she surely has much more of your own time to herself, and feels your availability more even when you're not specifically with her
