My granddaughter is supposed to be here this afternoon. I haven't had a baby in the house except for a few days at a time, in a long, long time. I am looking forward to it, but also wondering how we'll cope with her energy. She's a sweetie, generally a very happy child, smart, and very social, unlike my four-year-old grandson. He's more moody and very much an introvert. He doesn't deal well with other kids, either. After the problems with 00, he bit another child in preschool, to the point that child needed stitches.
Amazing how badly family violence screws with even small children's heads.
I only have a couple of minutes to post this morning so I'll be back later in the day (hopefully!) and either augment this entry or add another.
At least one day later I've gained a little perspective on Tall Guy. I still think he's playing stupid head games. Either that or he's dumb as a rock and really doesn't have a clue, and I don't buy that, not from this man.
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
