Just a little mom vent!
Soccer Shots started today and it is Spring season so its indoors. For the toddlers, they really practice handling the ball and don't run too much. It's done in the hallway of daycare and there plain isnt that much room to run. A few yards. My daughters pulm office encouraged me to let her try things like this and was all for her doing soccer shots, but I am nervous! To the point I was nearly in tears second guessing myself. I am totally regretting letting her do it, but both doctors thought she should try to be a kid. I had all kinds of things resurface from her asthma attack last year (she has only had 1 and it was during a bad spell of bronchitis).
I feel like this is much more of an inner struggle for me than it is at all for her physically. I dont want to hold her back in life and be a helicopter parent (I feel like her pediatrician thinks I am loco sometimes with worrying about her). Asthma parents: how did you help yourself find the line between protecting your kids and being overbearing?
Even though I acknowledge this is all still pretty fresh for us, and she's very young, I dont want holding her back from things to be about ME and my fears. Then again I am the one that needs to be the voice of safety and protection for her. Really struggling today….
