|Cassidy and Ivy|
After I left from Melanee's house I picked up my kids and the extra kids at my house and we headed to the Christmas play at our church. It was more geared towards adults but was really interesting. It was hard not to fall asleep though from packing all day. Part of me felt like I just want to be home in bed but then I also want to be faithful to church. I'm glad I did, waved a tired goodbye to my mom and remembered that I still needed to pick up two of my kids in the next city over. I let Chaz and Ivy play longer at at their friend's house to say goodbye. It was harder for me to have to go and pick them up after the play but they needed that extra time. Chaz cried when he left Dexter's house. He said, "Mom, you have no idea what it's like to lose a friend forever." :( I know exactly how it feels. Whether it's from betrayal, a friend moving, or passing away, we've all felt that loss. I was so tired but it wasn't the time to be impatient. His heart was just sad and needed someone to understand.
There is no way to be a perfect parent, but a million ways to be a really good one.
