“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2014”

The truth is: you’ve been an immense challenge lately, and we seem to have many more frustrated moments than not. Let’s try to get through this stage with smiles on our faces, okay?

Oh, I’m a mess right now, inside out.*

It’s a new season, and while I’ve been here, I don’t really feel as if I’ve really been here.
Meaning: my words have escaped me as of late,
even in my journal, they have.
The reality is that things have gotten really complicated
life has gotten really complicated.
As a child all you ever want is to grow up and become an adult.
Well, this adult is wishing I could go back to being a carefree child, just for a day.
Life has been a mess of fitful sleeps and tears in the dark closet,
deep breaths once the house has quieted and disappointing ventures.
It’s a new season and I’m really just trying to make it through.

Bear with me.
