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.

For Sissy who got angry at her backpack this morning


Life is funny
Life is weird.
Life makes women
Grow a beard.

Life is scary 
Life is fun.
Life won't end
With the setting sun.

Sometimes life gets
The better of you.
Just laugh out loud
And chuck a shoe.

On days when life
Lets you win
Put on a dress
And spin, spin, spin!

Life never says
What's coming next
But that makes living
Life the best.

So turn your frown
Upside down
And live this life
In your nightgown!

Life is sucky.
Life is foul.
Life sometimes makes us
Scream and howl.
Makes us gnaw our knuckles
Makes us whine, "This s*%# is cruddy."
And as we sit and stew and curse
We deeply dread it will get worse.
