Don’t want to sound needy … but I am

Um … is it okay to ask for a cyber-hug, cyber-prayer or two? 

Can’t offer details, but I am in the parenting crapper right now, trying to take comfort in people saying I don’t have to feel responsible for everything my children do … and still. 

Still.  A word of encouragement would be great right about now.

    Many hugs! Parenting is NOT for the faint of heart. I had to have a difficult heart to heart with one of mine last week, so I feel your pain. Hang in there!

    Everyone: Thanks. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are fine. One day I’ll post the details and maybe even laugh about it … ha ha … nope, not yet.

    I feel hugged and loved and much less likely to burst into tears. Thank you all again.

    You’re in my thoughts and prayers, Momma. It’s the pits some days, really embarrassing and scary, but I bet your kid(s) will be okay.

    Parenting gets an asterisk when it concerns teenagers and aspiring teens. You do what you can and time passes.

    Big, big hug.

    And remember this: the world is full of wonderful, successful, smart adults … who did really stupid things as kids. Including our current president.

    Hang in there.

    Sending you some good energy… I know that my parents certainly shouldn’t have taken credit for the trouble I got into or things my sister and I did…. I think it is more like you do your best and cross your fingers. Of course, easier said than done! Hope it gets better pronto, Elizabeth

    Here is a cyber-hug, cyber-cookies, and a cyber hot beverage of choice. (Unless of course a cold one fits the bill better.)

  15. From one who’s (probably) been there (and maybe in worse places…)–

    You’re a good momma, Momma. You don’t make your kids’ mistakes, they do. (Nor do you achieve their accomplishments… but you know that.) Cyber-hugs & prayers & good thoughts to you.
