Good news! The GREEN sippy cup has been found, since blue was apparently unacceptable.
I had a conversation with a friend the other day:
I gotta tell you, I’m super impressed with how calm you parent now…there are a lot of parents who would still be overly cautious about their preemies and you let them be kids who fall on their noggins and only panic when necessary. I mean when Destroy tanked you didn’t miss a beat. You just picked him and then set him on his way. Parents who didn’t have preemies aren’t usually that mellow.
Iâ€™m in the midst of the anniversary period of my hospitalization. The boys are almost two. Itâ€™s only been two years; itâ€™s already been two years. And as touted several times: No lasting effects of prematurity.
I still have no idea how I am the lucky one. Lucky enough to have not one but TWO healthy happy toddling extreme preemies. And little heartbreakers to boot!
I recently posted a diatribe about depression over at A Nervous Tic Motion. I was afraid to post it here. Of course, I later realized that itâ€™s just as public on any site. And my whole point was to push past the taboo of silence.
So Iâ€™m sharing it with you. I warned youâ€¦ Continue reading at your own risk. Itâ€™s a dark rabbit hole.
If you must know, the green sippy cup was hiding out in the fort under the slide. Sometimes you just need some alone time. Sometimes thatâ€™s the last thing in the world you want.
