Apropos of Nothing...

I'm thinking on this as an excellent item for inclusion in life skills discussions.  Perhaps difficult for some parents, but when thinking about things like adrenal exhaustion and long-term consequences - man, seems like a no-brainer to me.

In other news, the kids are home.  Yay!  The morning activities prior to my getting to the airport demonstrated the growing complexities with Q.  Again.  Thinking on that for now, and hoping for forthcoming solutions.

I don't know how to speak about the kids visits with their dad.  They love him so much, and rightfully so.  He's their dad and they need that relationship, that champion who only shows up in daddy clothes.  And also, there's fallout.  Uncomfortable questions.  Sadness at the very real losses resulting from his absence in their daily lives.  So.  Lots of tears tonight from one of the punkins.  It can be hard to keep one's head together under the abrupt changes occurring with visits.  Q had a hard time eating tonight - as he does during the beginning days of the big kids' absence.  Here's to an easier day tomorrow.  Yes.  That.

Gotta nail down a few of life's details before I hit the sack.  Huge shoutout to the people who took care of Q so I could go get the rest of the kids.  Hope life is being kind to you and yours.
