Being a parent can sometimes suck. If your child falls down and goes boom, you feel bad. You do what you can to help them heal up as fast as possible; baby them, if you will. If your child has a bad relationship, you do the same; you be there and do what you can to help them sort through it. What do you do when your child is so completely ripped apart by what happened in her past?
I don’t know.
My children are the most important part of my life. Even my babies that I don’t really know. To see one of my kids in pain kills me.
We had a situation last night where some painful stuff got brought up in a conversation, and our oldest, Carol Anne, revisited some very painful memories. I wanted to kiss her and hug her and tell her it would be ok. I know it won’t change by me telling her it will. I wish it was that easy. It ain’t.
Baby girl, I love you with all my heart. I am sorry you had to go through those things. If you ever need to talk to me, you call. K?
Being powerless when your kids are hurting and they need you to help and you can’t….well that fucking blows chunks!
