Thoughtful Thursday

Well, it's been awhile since I did one of these posts I think.  For those new here, having children with FAS can be difficult some days.  Yet, as parents we still need to find the good in each and every one of them.  So, we try to recognize what thoughtful thing they've done throughout the week.  If you look hard enough, most of the time you can find at least one if not quite a few more.  So, here goes.

Max-- really has stepped up to the plate and taken care of Bojan in the wheelchair for us.  He is there to load him on and off the bus and carry him up the stairs when needed as well.  Not an easy thing to lift 90 lbs plus a cast.  Very thoughtful Max.  What a brother!

Bojan-- though he is limited, he is still showing his gratitude & thoughtfulness.  Bojan read books to Nik for us this week.  He volunteered to.  We did not even ask. 

Alex-- Alex helped us out one day:

I thought this was incredibly thoughtful.  Nik was having trouble w/ his shoes one morning and Alex jumped right in to help him.  Have no idea why Bojan's leg is laying there.  
Nik-- Nik's thoughtful moment definitely was teaching Alyona to skate this week.  It was very sweet of him to do.  

Irina-- Irina new I was having a rough day earlier this week and really tried to get everyone in order and everyone's lunch made.  Really was thoughtful of her to take into consideration how mom was feeling that day.

Yana-- Yana has actually been helping out w/ chores more.  Not her chores but everyone's!  I'm shocked too, trust me.  LOL.  Very thoughtful.

Alyona-- This is difficult b/c Alyona has had the most difficult week to date.  Hard time at school and at home.  However, when Alex was sick this evening she was concerned and wondered if she could get him anything to make him feel better.  

I know many times FAS children get a bad stereotype attached to them as "difficult" children or misbehaving all the time.  I hope that from these thoughtful Thursday posts you all can see FAS children are very, very capable of having a kind heart and doing the right thing.  For that, I am very proud of my children.
