and the life in between
Not obnoxious, not obvious. I *wish* I had the capacity to notice these things when mine were 6 and 2. It was so hard and I needed a gentle hand on my shoulder reassuring me and asking me to slow down. I can't believe we made it to 17 and 14. Still unlearning so much. It's still hard and now I know it is instead of telling myself it shouldn't be. So there's that.
My ADHD sees you. I needed to read this. I keep the future at a distance in a paralyzing way that keeps it happening to me instead of for me and I'm working on that.
