Well yesterday was a very sad day. Today, when I was testing students I did not feel bad for them.
First off Dana Reeves died. I did not know her or follow her story very closely, but I felt horrible for there poor son. Not only was your father a parapalegic, but he died a couple of years ago. Then your mother is diagnosed with lung cancer and dies. It's too much for a young kid to go through. Last night I was watching access hollywood. billy Bush, who I know is not the foremost news man, says he got to know the child a bit. He said, I'm sure his parents when his parents named him Will they didn't realize how much of it he would actually need. So sad....
Then a good friend of mine e-mailed to say her father was going to die. Man it is too sad. It's amazing how much people love their parents. I know it's life and human nature, but it can be so difficult. Especially when your family lives far away. That is an interesting thing about the world we live in. I live in a city I love, but it is so far away from Darryl's whole family. When his dad was sick it was difficult to be so far away. To my friend, I am putting my arms around you for a big hug. You will get through this, and you know that. But keep in mind how much I love you.
The silver lining about the sadness is that it makes you appricate what you have. Mom and Dad I love you both. I know there will be many more fun times together. But you are such good parents (and now grandparents)
Onto today, Darryl had a good morning with Lucas. Although he was up once in the night. I am torn on what to do about it. So for the time being I am still getting up once. Do I leave it up to Lucas to decide when he wants to sleep through, or do I lay down the law. Oh parenting, I did not know what I was in for.
