Went and checked on the boys & my heart hurt again for Brayden. This little man has been through SO much. He is literally missing the middle portion of his brain because of all the abuse done to me and to my stomach when I was pregnant with him.
He struggles in school and today we talked about his attitude about trying new things, especially certain math problems. His response about why he gets upset broke my soul. “Mom I’m just not smart.”
I have been explaining to him all the way up until bedtime that he is extremely smart and just because he needs help or doesn’t understand things doesn’t change that. EVERYONE asks for help and no one knows everything. We are constantly learning.
One day at a time my sweet smart man.
