My teenager has been in the hospital for over a week. we’ve had to balance being with him 24 hours a day, taking care of our little ones plus manage our own worry, have brain cells to digest information, make decisions, manage our stress levels, put on smiles for all 3 kids and more. Best advice is to Be Here Now when with any of them.
I had a great Mommy Playdate at Good Vibrations when I thought he just had the flu and needed to sleep. The night was so fun and powerful. Then we came home to our baby to find our baby–teenager baby– had gotten sicker. That’s the daily life of parents. That’s reality. Will be thoughtful and able to write soon. Miss you guys.
