  1. This post feels so “real daily life” to me. Real life daily joys of getting out in this awesome snow. Real life daily joys of Katniss Barbie kicking ass and taking names (or real life daily hardships for the Barbie’s experiencing Katniss’ badass ways). Real life daily “huh” off-guard moments of tucking in your kidlet and finding her in tears. Unable to answer with a planned response. Having to stay real and be honest. Yeah it sucks. Yep. And here’s the one thing I see about it that helps, that it’s planned. And yep, I’m not you. But I’m the mom who’s been through watching my other daughter go through this surgery shit and that’s no picnic either, and I made it. And you will never, ever, ever be alone in it.

    Yeah, I think you’ve got this Hokey Pokey down, Jackie — love and truth, that’s what it’s all about. I think off-guard suits you nicely. xoxoxo

  2. It is so amazing that Ana can suspend reality for a few hours to be a kid, those hours of relief from fear are so good for her (and for you all!). What is it the poet said? “Beware thoughts that come in the night. They aren’t turned properly; they come in askew, free of sense and restriction, deriving from the most remote of sources.” ~William Trogdon

    I have to remind myself of this often, and so I share it with you. Glory in the day, and cuddle out the poorly turned thoughts in the night!
