The First Call
Three hours later, I was called again and told everything was okay. Normally I think a vivid imagination is a good thing but not when my kids are having trouble. My imagination had a lot of things happening in those three, long, hours. Fortunately, everything went better than I had envisioned. Even though she did have some good friends with her, as a parent you worry – a lot. Long distant parenting is hard.
No matter how old your kids are, parenting has its rewards. No matter how old your kids are it also has difficult, anxious moments . . . whether it’s the first phone call of the day or not.
