Thank you!

Thank you, Allison! I was rear-ended, and not even very hard. I was turned when it happened though, looking for oncoming traffic. I guess that’s all it takes!

I have lots more head and neck mobility since Friday, so I am hopeful that in a week or two I’ll be back to my usual antics. 🙂

Kelly, I am so glad we found each other again. I remember you from last time. Can we connect on FB?

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.
