On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

not a respite friendly evening

all I will say is this.

It was not a respite-friendly evening.
Due to an unfortunate accident that was completely unavoidable, I spent the evening in the ER with Wonder Girl who is fine despite 26 stitches on her ankle.

I have nothing further to say than "THANK YOU GOD for sparring Wonder Girl's life today!" I could be telling a you a very different story but because God is merciful, Wonder Girl is mine to hug and love for another day.

I don't think I'll be letting her out of my sight any time soon. And I'm about to make The Dad sleep somewhere else despite his cold (he really is quite ill). I want to be as close to Wonder Girl as I can get tonight.
