Red and green and blue

It’s Thursday again, already! This week for “A Little More” at ParentDish, I write about what comes after Christmas, when you’re a 4-year-old: if it were a children’s book, it would be called, “The Very Very Sad Day When Nothing Could Go Right And Everything Was Too Tight.”

  1. Beautiful, Jennifer. I’ve decided the great thing about being away from all my family at the holidays is that I miss that big letdown – it just doesn’t happen. Of course, I miss a lot of great stuff, too, and isn’t it always a trade off one way or another?

  2. Oh, Jennifer, that was soooo beautiful and, well, kinda sad. But in a good way. I *try* to remind myself that the gift in being able to feel the sadness is the gift of being able to feel the joy, too. Then I weep a little and put on some happy music. I challenge the boys to feel sad when there is happy music playing.

    And I always find some new windmill to tilt at in an effort to keep focused on the future. Sometimes it actually works! LOL

    And the title for the book…I’d read a book with that title. It sounds like it’s just waiting for the ending to be written…

    Sending you all oodles of non-Christmas love and hugs. xo
