Living my new normal

the preschool visit

  • Big Hugs to you reading this post. There are so many steps to navigate on this journey to the "new normal". Unfortunately there is no handbook and there is no way to know when those new steps are going to pop up. I also volunteer with my local March of Dimes office and I've found it to be such a wonderful to honor my daughters memory. Something about helping to ensure that no other family has to endure what my family has endured brings me comfort.

    Next year when C starts school we will all be here. On your best and worst days. The situation you described in the parking lot has happened to me before. At my daughter school as a matter of fact. Leaving your child in someone else's care after suffering a loss is very difficult. Many of us have been there.



  • It is so hard to let them grow up.  To have to deal with grief on top of that is even harder.  I'm glad you've got a good support system in place to help you deal with first day of school issues.

    Like Jami said, we're here to remind you that you're not alone, you're not crazy, you can do this.

    Thinking of you,


  • I'm sure that it's got to be hard thinking about Colin going to preschool, especially with everything you have been through.

    It takes time and is so hard to find your new normal.  I know that foggy feeling.  One day at a time.
