Our Big Little Girls

When this journey began, our girls were barely 8 and 10. In the two years since then, they’ve been through a lot.

They’ve endured peaks of fear, responsibility and uncertainty. Their own and ours.
They’ve been misunderstood and alienated by their peers.
They’ve pushed the limits of already maxed-out and readjusting parents. And endured the resulting wrath.
They’ve even hidden big worries and needs.

Last summer they refused to be separated from us. Even day camp was out of the question.

Yesterday, they bolted from the car to 5 days of sleepover camp. Without a hug, goodbye or backward glance.

They are happy and healthy and they’ve become confident that we are too.

We love you and miss you, Lucy and Bayla. Have a safe, healthy, happy, fabulous week at camp!!

Looking forward to reuniting with you on Friday.

    WOW! What a thing to survive, at 8 an 10 – the prospect of losing Mom. They have survived and thrived! Those sleepover camps are SO SO SO SO SO SO good for kids (and their parents ). nnHappy camping Luba. Happy Honeymoon-at-home Mandria (or is is Adreark?)

  • Thanks, Janice. Ya, they’ve been through a lot and we barely ever cut them any slack. I think it’s a nice healthy break for all of us. I do hope they are really enjoying their weeks.
