I knew that there would be payback after the glorious day we had Saturday. Hope started tantruming as soon as we left for home. She eventually fell asleep. When she woke up, she went into a full blown rage. It lasted the rest of the ride home and flared up up twice more after we were home. So why do I periodically make decisions that I KNOW will have high payback?
- Hope is experience deprived. She needs as many different experiences as she can assimilate.
- One of the experiences Hope lacks is normal family memories. We make memories.
- GB has always had memory-making experiences and she continues to need them.
- Us parents need the opportunity to have friends and enjoy life.
Yes, reentry today was exhausting and just plain hard. That doesn’t mean yesterday shouldn’t have happened. It just means that sometimes you know something is worth its steep price.
