I'm stuck at my favorite coffee shop. : ) Really. I took my car in for some work at 8:00. They said it would be an hour and a half.They are having some problems and it is not done yet. It is 12:03 here. I was here at the coffee shop all morning doing homework and sipping on a caramel comfort. After checking on the car I am back and having lunch. I have a long list of things that need to be done at home. I have been fighting a cold and general wornoutdedness. Things need to be done. I am stuck. It reminds me of Bear though. He is stuck. Stuck in grief. That must feel so horrible. I have been reflecting the last couple of days on my therapeutic parenting or the lack thereof. Once again I must get back to the basics of gentle touch, loving eyes and emotional understanding with my boys. That is near impossible when you feel tired and worn out. So I guess God voted and said I was taking a day off! : ) I hope you have had some chances to talk about grieving the loss of birth family if your child is stuck. I have discussed it briefly with Bear and he is acting out. That means he is thinking about it. I will discuss it again tonight. Parenting emotionally hurting children is tough work. It can be done. I feel we were chosen to do it.
