Helpless

Violet is sick - or was. I don't know at this point. She woke up with horrible belly pain. Bad enough that I called the doc and he sent is to the ER. It's 3 hours later and she seems totally fine as we wait foe the ER doc to see us. Did I over react ? Panic? It's so hard to know. What I do know is I feel helpless.

This part of parenting is so difficult. In most other situations I feel in control. Intelligent. Adult. When one of my kids is sick enough to need a trip to the ER I don't feel any of those things . This is what patenting books don't tell Us about.
