Double Whammy! Egor is off to New Mexico for the week, and Liev started his first day of school. With Tanya here so soon, my head is spinning. I haven’t even considered the milestone that unfolded this morning. Life is a whizzing blur like a green streak of trees seen through a windshield. I drive, following yellow lines, monotonous and laid out for the masses. No trail-blazing here.
Liev refused food today, but I put that up to nerves for the first day of school. Does he understand what school means? So much change. Papa is gone, Tanya is here, I am anxious. Does he not eat that like a meal? I spoke to Ms. Jerri about Liev’s behavior, his trouble sleeping, nose-wiping and biting. She suggested that I have a little wind-down list of things for him to do when he comes home from school today. I hope I can help him to feel better.
