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.

Tired or emotionally exhausted

I taught WG's sunday school class this morning. Only one hour and only 7 children, WG included. Plus there was another mom there to assist.

Now I'm exhausted. I came home and flopped on the bed like a slug. I'd slept very well again last night so I don't think I'm physically tired. I think it's emotional exhaustion.

5 hours left.


Really hoping Sissy doesn't make me pay for this respite but I have the activities stacked up for tomorrow so I'm hoping to avoid the payback by keeping the kids busy, busy, busy.

I'm going to go slug some more. Happy Sunday!

And boy do you ever deserve some real, deep quality slugging! It's great to hear you've hopefully got planned weekend respite ahead, now keeping my fingers crossed that today is going well.

So you need to tell us what we are dying to hear...how was the reunion? Did it go smoothly, or did Sissy decide to punish you for the break?
