With the changes that our home has weathered in the past 16 months it is amazing that all of the people have made it.
Things will not 'get back to normal'. First- normal is a misnomer- second- we have to find a new 'routine' a new typical. All of us have to learn all of us have to grow. The issue is during this period of growth we have some growing pains. We have to learn our new way... forge a new path.
Growing pains are hard on all of us. I get frustrated- the kids are confused and looking for their home base and not finding it.....
To me finding our center as a family becomes even more important during this period than normal.
Finding time to do normal routine things-reading stories- eating meals together- become more important to us.
