We’ve had a few tough days here at Casa de Dalenberg. In two-year old fashion Rowan has exerted his will at every turn, and I have felt every bump along this road. I’ve had moments where I felt I was utterly failing him. I’ve wondered how I was going to make it through another moment without breaking down. We’ve had several sleepless nights in a row, with unexplained crying for hours, followed by days of whining and tantrums.
I have no like-minded mother’s around here to help put this all in perspective, to commiserate with, to support me, to guide me, or simply to listen. In times like this I crave the bond I had with my mom friends in New Mexico.
All I needed to know was that I am not alone, this is normal, and that, yes, I will make it through this.
So where does one go when one lacks the social connections that provides one’s much-needed support? The internet!
(Yes, I cried while watching this. But only the first time. )
