Weight of Circumstances
Long weekend. I was looking forward to it. Family coming up, party planned, Joel was stable...and then, I got the call. Connor, kicking, hitting, and head-butting my mother. No joke. At first I wanted to beat the tar out of him....but after about 2 minutes, I realized...he's in the same crisis as we are. He's been out of schedule for six weeks too. Adjustment made. Connor's now parkin' it at the treehouse with mama. I'm nervous about it but I think it will be good for the both of us. I'm already feeling guilty for not being up there 24/7 with Joel, but I'm going to do my best to incorporate both tasks and try to spend some one-on-one time with the "Connor-man." It breaks my heart seeing this stress through the eyes of a 4-year-old.
