Worry Bug

So we moved back to SoCal and are getting settled in fine. The garage is a mess and stresses me out. This house is a bit smaller so not all my decorative knickknacks can be displayed the way I'd like them to be.

Lately my anxiety has been in full force because I am trying to get the house in complete order but the projects are piling up and throw Christmas on top of it all, and well, you have all the ingredients you need for an anxious mom.

Now my anxiety has focused itself on my youngest, my 4 year old son. While we were visiting my in-laws, my mother-in-law was playfully teasing him over his pronunciation of his words that start with the letter L. He pronounces them with the W sound.

The teasing was all it took to send me on a mommy " is he going to need speech therapy " anxiety spiral. I'm totally freaking out and now annoying my son with my constant request for him to repeat all the words I can think of that start with the letter L.

My husband tells me he's fine and maybe he will need speech therapy. I should remember that there are parents who's children are fighting for their lives. If this is the worse we have to deal with we should take THIS issue happily and gratefully.
