Tonight for the first time in forever we all had plans with friends and went our separate ways
I’m grateful for the closeness we share, but I’m happy they have friends they want to go hang with too. I feel often like all we have been through in the last few years has prevented them from being “normal” teenagers. And maybe that’s a good thing. But I’m happy they’re doing regular teen things now too.
And I’m also grateful for a parenting free night.
