Will had physical therapy this morning, it didn't go so well. It could have been the fact that it was at 8am which by all accounts is way too early and it could have been the fact that he hadn't had much to eat before the therapist got to the house. Nonetheless, therapy must go on, right?
Will didn't tolerate much of anything. He cried a lot during the hour. And had to take several breaks to come get a snuggle and a hug from his Momma (he is so sweet like that). But there was one point during the hour that I thought, "should I make him continue?". I mean he was so upset and crying. I didn't know if it was that he just didn't want to do therapy, if he was not feeling well, or if he was just having an "off" day. I wish that he could have told me but that is a whole other issue.
I didn't stop the therapy but I am questioning my Mommy abilities right now, should I have called it quits or was I right to have him keep going? In parenting Will, it is hard to know when a push is a good thing or if pushing too hard could cause more trouble down the road. I normally don't think that we push Will too hard with the amount of therapy that he does. I also think that Will is doing so well because of all the therapy that he does. But today I am questioning it.
