YAY For Uplifting Therapists!

MK had therapy today.  YAY for no backlash afterward.  We're cuddled up on the couch right now. 

Today Dr. P said, "I wish all moms were as good as you are with your girls."  She said people come for HER to help their kids... they have no desire to help THEIR kids or change themselves... they expect her to fix it...then she added, "You expect me to guide you... not to fix her". 
 
She's said before that her work means nothing without my help.  I AM her therapist, I dry the tears, listen to the heartache, help her heal EVERY DAY!   Her therapist is there for me, to help me be a better mom to MK, to help me understand what is behind her behaviors, and she helps MK too with relaxation skills and transitions. 
 
Just made me smile!

That is too funny! Miss D had an appt with her therapist today and she echoed something super similar! I love it.... I am kind of at a loss imagining a life as a parent who lays back and let's the doctors do all the work.... hmm.
