A family's story


I was writing a somewhat humorous post about our lack of sleep. Then I started seeing horrific messages on Twitter and Facebook. I went to CNN. I almost threw up.

I absolutely have no way of wrapping my head around the tragic event that took place in CT today. No logical person could.

Babies. The gunman killed babies. Kindergarteners…from what the Tribune is reporting. This disturbed individual killed innocent little babies.

The parents. The teachers. The other children. None of them will ever be the same. They lost so much today…just because one person was obviously disturbed.

I will not complain about my children’s sleep habits. I won’t remark about their
struggles. At the end of the day, I get to hold all 3 of them. Take in their smell. See their innocence and relish in their childish playfulness. There are too many parents who won’t be able to do that tonight… or any other night.

My prayers and condolences go out to all of the families. You are living any parent’s worst nightmare… I am so, so sorry…
