The Boy

I am super stressed, frankly, over stuff to do with my 7-year old son that I don’t really want to explain or elaborate on in this blog. Suffice it to say that little Lo is a terrific, intelligent, creative, sweet kid, who has brought so much joy to our family, but who is having some stress and some difficulties in his life. And the pain of your kids having stress and difficulties — that’s serious stuff (and we’ve never really had it all that much with Millie, who could be a bit tempestuous when she was little, but really she’s always just been sure of herself, funny, resourceful, a joy).

Getting through this time and meeting these challenges is going to make him a stronger, deeper, wiser person. But in the moment, it’s really not easy, and it makes all the other stuff I write about on this blog seem rather unimportant by comparison.
