Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

You had another scary dream last night, so you plopped yourself in my bed around 11pm and kicked me all morning. I woke up frustrated and exhausted.

As I was pouring my coffee, you told me you were hungry. I took out the cereal and asked you to wait just one minute. But you were hungry, so you grabbed the milk and tried to pour it yourself. Milk was everywhere. I overreacted.

I reminded you and your brothers that I had an important virtual meeting and that I needed you guys to be quiet. I put on Ben10 and told you that I would be there to help you as soon as my meeting ended. I had to mute myself 3 times to ask you guys to stop screaming. I wanted to cry. Why didn’t you guys understand that I have to work from home? This is hard.

But then you grabbed my hand and told me you loved me. My stress and anxiety washed away -at least for tonight.

This is not our new normal. This is temporary. This too shall pass.

Thank you for understanding my frustrations are not a reflection of you.

Thank you for holding me.

And thank you for loving me sweet son.
