Looking back, it’s been a difficult few months. Between Mayor Bee’s suspension and subsequent removal from his aftercare, transitioning to the new aftercare, schedule changes, sick kids, and my surgery – we’ve had a lot on our plate to juggle.
Sometimes it’s hard to accept that parenting (and life itself) just isn’t what you see on sitcoms, read in books, or follow on your friend’s Facebook updates and tweets. It’s not all rainbows and unicorns, I tend to say to myself QUITE a lot. You get lost in the all the activity surrounding you – and that you don’t know if you can ride it out.
But some days you do look up and know that you might have just rode through yet another storm. You don’t realize at first, of course, but then – like the angels singing from heaven and the light shining in your eyes – it’s there. Sometimes you do see the rainbow on the other side.
And just like that, you take a deep breath in…and know that another rocky patch will come your way. But for now, just enjoy the pretty sight.
