Being there, or backing up...but always listening
I couldn't sleep last night thinking about the day. We were a little late getting to the Award Ceremony but the food was still being served so it was ok. But I can't help but thinking what if....What if I had to make a choice between my children's events. I know people do it all the time, we can't be there for everything, but I sure want to be.
When we got home last night, I had so much to do...but my heart ached for Cameron. I went upstairs and told him we needed to have a talk. We went unplugged last night, no video games, no t.v. just time together to talk. He shared about his day, He was apologetic for his bad mood. He was a different kid, as he talked, I could see his mood change slowly. This is a weekly thing, these moods, I can tell he is trying so hard to figure it all out. I want to help so much, but I know some of this he also has to figure out for himself. These pains, these growing pains are so painful to watch. Those of you with preteens and teens, do you agree?
