Yesterday Peter and I met with a pediatrician who told us that our kids seemed to have a lot of pent up emotions.
I’m going to let that one simmer for a second.
The kids who have dealt with their mom having a stroke.
Then their baby sister going through cancer treatment.
After which, mom decided that instead of ice cream she’ll have the stokes for dessert.
Then they have to adjust their whole lives to cope with a wheelchair.
Did I mention that we’d moved and ALL of their closest friends were no longer there to support them.
Are you rolling your eyes in amazement that these kids aren’t robbing 7-11′s
Cause I am.
Yeah, they are pigs and it takes an act of Congress to get the living room cleaned.
But these kids are amazing and still standing.
They have withstood things that crush most adults.
We can do this.
Is the easy part.
Loving my kids regardless of everything else is what I was made to do.
The everything else?
Wish me luck.
