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.

32 months later...

Since I posted about being so crazy happy, I decided to go back and read about how UNhappy I'd been.  And I stumbled on this one: http://peaceinpuzzles.blogspot.com/2011/02/fix-this.html

That's a whole lot of unhappy.  And I'm nearly there - nearly to the daydream of happiness described in the post.  Of course, The Dad is no longer in the picture but I'm happy at the breakfast table by myself.  And who knows, maybe life will add someone to sit at the breakfast table and play footsies with me while he reads the paper and I flip through a quilt magazine. A girl can dream...32 months later.
