aren't the worst of it.
when my boys are sick, they have a hard time sleeping.
But they need to sleep to get better.
But they won't sleep if I'm in there.
So I stand on the other side of their door.
I can't leave.
I can't go in.
I just suffer.
They cry like abandoned orphans.
They think they are all alone.
We're starting lent early and giving up those bacteria farms known as "nurseries".
