I haven’t talked too much lately about the T-man. He’s doing fabulously, happy most days, eager to learn and explore new things. He’s in a truly great stage right now. We can share his experiences and he still sees his parents as his heroes. Most days are great, with a few not so great moments sprinkled in to keep life interesting.
But, then there are the days that just bring on stress and anxiety. As a parent, these are the hardest, because there’s so much unknown, and often too much information to actually find a solution. The other day, someone mentioned a specific issue, or problem, that she noticed Tysen was having. It caused me a lot of stress, and lead to questioning where I had gone wrong as a mom, what I could have done better or differently.
And then, of course, I hit Google up for some answers. Just so you know, Google sucks and can lead to hysteria. While you may innocently enter a few key words of a phrase, you get all kinds of results that may not be related, but they will sure scare the hell out of you. I know the person who I was talking to didn’t intend for me to Google, and was probably not as bothered by our conversation as I was. But I did. So now not only am I stressed and laden with mommy guilt, I’ve also added freaked out and scared to the mix.
Thanks a lot Google.
