Hello Everybody, I thought it would be good to start a thread on the little joys, fun times, good days, and silly days that occur between the symptoms and struggles of our journeys toward healing from PTSD. I'll start with one of my fun and silly times that happened over Easter. My 8 year old son and I had a great time wressling and skuffling with each other. I kept grabbing him, pulling him close, and giving him big nuggies right on his big red head! He would shriek with delight and try to get his old mom in a sleeper hold. Man that kid is good at wiggling his way out of mammouth holds of his moms big arms. I kept teasing him when he would make shrill shrieks. I would say, Oh! my goodness, I better be gentle with my pretty little girl! Oh! Let me go get a bow for your hair. After gasping and hollaring, "I'm no girl!" He'd run and jump right on top of me and get me in one of his household famous, "I got your neck", holds. He would then say, "Would a little girly girl do this!" Then he'd give me one of them dog gone hunker dog kisses. YUK! We had a freakin blast then we both became exhausted and took a nap on the couch while watching "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy." Having a little boy sure is alot of fun! I'm a bit of a hyperactive person anyway. I can't even site still for a good movie. We are quite the pair to drive poor dad nuts!!!!! lol!
