I know I already posted tonight, but I forgot this…
The past few weeks have been difficult. With much of my time being spent at the hospital, I haven’t had much time with my kids. I decided to take the day off today so I could spend it with them. By this evening, I could tell we all had a lot of pent up energy.
As we sat around the counter, I told them to be prepared for me to scream. I then opened my mouth and shouted at the top of my lungs, “I love you guys!!!” The kids started laughing and they each took turns shouting the same phrase. Then we shouted it together. We screamed so much and for so long that our throats hurt. After weeks of sadness and quiet, the screaming was the release we needed.
We spent the next hour running around and playing. We pretended we were invisible and we attacked each other. We laughed, we shouted, we wore each other out. It was perfect and I know the kids enjoyed it!
Sometimes you just need to scream.
