It is! But it’s for linking stories from your own site. I love your story and was thinking you must have work massed somewhere?

Michael, I’m unsure of this comment is meant to be received. I remember seeing it before, or at least some parts of it. It is very moving and beautifully told. I just don’t know how you want to connect it to this particular post. Do you have a blog? This seems like a set of defining experiences, and I believe you’d like them to be heard. Starting your own site would be a lovely way to share. I don’t find one when I try to follow your name.

Thank you, Elaine. I did a lot of crying in front of and with them once school was out. They weren’t sure how to feel, so seeing my sadness helped. You are right about the sharing of grief. I’m glad I stayed open.

Thank you. <3

Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
Yes, very true. We need to be able to share.

I am so glad you love the parenting. It is very unnatural to me; a constant battle to be kind. Even now I am struggling not to be angry about crumbs and drips and kids who refuse to listen the first or second or third time.

I look forward to each task they learn to complete on their own. Each bit of independence. But I am also working hard to enjoy the other moments. Books are almost always a win. Sharing stories fills my heart. 🙂

Parenting is Hard and I Don’t Like It
I think, here, there have been longer stretches in between the beautiful moments despite my constant reframing. The kids are pushing boundaries, I have been dealing with some background noise, and there is the running to and fro. Mama, we need a break.
