Mom win of the week
If you know me in real life, you know the decision to send Sullivan to Kindergarten this year was a tough one. For many reasons, but mostly because of his health issues and the fact that he’s super young for his grade. Well, a few weeks ago he got an award for Cooperation (hilarious, since he’s stubborn AF at home) and I couldn’t be more proud. It honestly doesn’t even matter what it’s for, but knowing that he’s thriving where he is and actually loves going to school––eases a lot of my worry. Also helps that he has a rockstar teacher on his team!
Mom "fail" of the week
October definitely hasn’t been how I pictured it. Last week, my dad was in a very serious accident and I spent most of the week in the ICU with him. While the reality was that the boys and Tyler were totally fine, I can’t help but feel that mom guilt whenever I’m away and not able to help.
On that same note, thank you to all of you who reached out about my dad. While it has been and will continue to be a long road, he’s doing a lot better.
I have lots of thoughts on scary life moments, hospitals, nurses, and family that have been brewing in my head ever since. It’s nearly impossible for me to put it in to words just how heavy it all was. How heavy it still is.
My dad was lucky and it puts a lot of life in to perspective for me.
I’m at a crossroads with podcasts. It’s becoming so hard to find something that I can get through the first episode. Maybe it’s just where my head has been at lately, who knows. Any suggestions??
Season 5 of Schitt’s Creek is on Netflix! So glad to have my Rose family fix again.
