You need to connect, connect, connect — as much as you can.
I don’t care how you do it, but do it.
Even if it’s a text, phone call, FaceTime, or quick 🍆
Send pics, make jokes, and make them realize (and miss!) what they’re missing out at home.
Obviously there will be times when they won’t respond like while they’re seeing patients or in a procedure. (But be reassured, they would respond if they could.) But keep trying to connect.
With a schedule that literally changed every few weeks (let’s be honest- every day), our marriage roles did too!
Hard is not an excuse to be bitter! Its especially not an excuse to shift blame toward your husband. But Sunday I was there.
They shared with us everything from the daily schedule and details that made this school experience wonderful to how this choice would set our child up for success and a path to the Ivy League. After all, wasn’t that the dream that everyone had for their child?
I think the truth is that many of us find ourselves still “performing” long after the curtains have closed. We keep acting like the show goes on, but its time for an intermission.
