Just like any parent I can’t stand to see my girls upset and yesterday Alice was in tears with the thought of going back to Rochester. She really was genuinely quite distraught with the thought of going back and it took a little while to calm her down and remind her of all the good things she had to look forward to when she got back like school and all of her friends down there.
I guess the new arrival in the house hasn’t helped things but, as they’ve done before, I’m sure they’ll adjust to the new “normal” in time. They’ve had a lot to deal with over the last year and a half so I hope this isn’t the proverbial straw. We’ll see.
Two arms around me,
wrapped so tightly it could hurt.
Tears falling like rain.
