I have a very special plan for the day today. My goal is to try and fill the kids day with normalcy. What I mean by that is I want to focus on these guys just being kids today.
There’s so much going on in their lives right now causing them pain and distress. I can’t control that, nor can I take their pain away. All I’m able to do is make sure that they know they’re loved, that I’ll never leave them and that their only job is to be a kid.
Unfortunately, kids in general are subjected to many adult issues and while it’s true that kids are resilient, that shouldn’t be considered a free pass to force grownup issues on them.
It can be difficult to distract my kids but at the moment, they’re content just watching Justice League animated movies. I’m totally cool with that and it’s even sucked Elliott in as well. That almost never happens. Gavin’s doing his own thing and doesn’t seem to be impacted by many things in life, the way his brothers are. That’s one of those blessing and a curse type deals.
Anyway, I feel pretty good that both boys are occupied, getting along and distracted by superheros.. ☺
