With Christmas only 10 days away and one more week of school left full of holiday children’s parties and playdates, I was already feeling a little overwhelmed. Then, the horrific events at Sandy Hook Elementary unfolded and everything seemed so trivial.
Though I’m finding it difficult to focus, I need to be here for my family. I need to keep on running, planning dinners and play dates to keep things as normal as possible for my family. I need to keep the magic and joy in Christmas. And each of us needs to hug our babies a little tighter.
