This will be brief. I just need to put “pen to paper” so to speak. No matter how old your kid is, they are still your kid. No matter if you are frustrated with them, scratching your head with some of their decisions, or trying to give them a swift kick in the pants…..THEY ARE STILL YOUR KID. And, if you feel they are being hurt on the playground, your heart breaks. You want to hug them. To tell them this will not break them.
But, when they feel slighted by the people that are supposed to mean the most, on a day that is supposed to be so monumental, there really are no words of solace. One can understand all sides of a story, but at the end of the day, a parents heart still breaks.
Baby girl, when your heart hurts. My heart hurts.
